Suzuki is about to launch the most extreme version of its GSX-R1000R superbike.
The Suzuki GSX-R1000R Ryuyo takes its name from Suzuki’s legendary test track, reputed to be the fastest in the world.
The track was designed by Mitsou Ito, the only Japanese winner of the Isle of Man TT, who included many features of the infamous island circuit in his 6.5km test circuit.
The track-only superbike has 210 horsepower and saw Suzuki engineers focus on acceleration, handling and braking, making tyre traction, stability and grip a crucial factor in achieving the performance goals.
In addition to the well proven, world championship winning, Dunlop KR108 rear tyre in 205/60R17 size, the project also marks the OE debut of the new KR109 front tyre (Size: 125/80R17).
The Ryuyo goes on sale on November 10th and is limited to 20 bikes and appears to be a Europe only special.
