100th Anniversary GSX-R pricing revealed
We recently showcased the recent announcement of the pending arrival of a 100th Anniversary limited edition GSX-R1000 but Suzuki Australia have now also confirmed that, unlike most other markets who no longer sell GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 models due to tightened emissions legislation, Australia will get the 100th Anniversary treatment across the entire GSX-R range of models, which for us means GSX-R1000, GSX-R750 and GSX-R600.
The flagship superbike sports the same retro-inspired livery as the GSX-RR MotoGP machine, with the traditional blue and slate silver colour scheme paying homage to Suzuki’s early Grand Prix machines of the 1960s.
The 100th Anniversary Limited Edition GSX-R1000R will be strictly limited to 30 units and will be available from January 2021 for a manufacturer’s recommended retail price of $26,990 Ride Away.
The GSX-R1000R shares more than just paint with the GP racer, and utilises the same variable valve timing system to boost both torque and peak power. It also gets a comprehensive suite of electronics, which includes 10 traction control modes, a quickshifter and auto-blipper, launch control, and lean angle-sensitive ABS.
The 100th Anniversary Limited Edition GSX-R750 will be strictly limited to 50 units and will be available from January 2021 for a manufacturer’s recommended retail price of $17,490 Ride Away.
The 2021 GSX-R750 runs a 750cc in-line four-cylinder liquid-cooled powerplant, with fully adjustable 41 mm Showa BPF forks fully adjustable Showa shock, Brembo four piston calipers and a generous increase in power over the 600, with only a small weight increase.
The 100th Anniversary Limited Edition GSX-R600 will be strictly limited to 10 units and will be available from January 2021 for a manufacturer’s recommended retail price of $16,490 Ride Away.
The traditional Suzuki supersport offering, the GSX-R600 runs a 599 cc in-line four-cylinder engine, sharing features with the larger GSX-R750 like Suzuki’s Drive Mode Selector system, dual throttle valves, an exhaust tuning valve, ram-air system and immobiliser for security.
