Suzuki has unveiled its new MotoGP livery for the 2018 season, and with it a new replica paint scheme for its award-winning GSX-R1000R and GSX-R1000.
Unveiled at a preseason MotoGP test at Sepang, Malaysia, the new livery is an evolution of the eye-catching blue with bold Suzuki wording, but for 2018 introduces the use of a stealthy black to the usual yellow details, and is available on both the GSX-R1000R and GSX-R1000.
Similarities between the production machines and the GSX-RR racers that will be piloted by Andrea Iannone and Alex Rins in 2018 are not limited to paint schemes, with the GSX-R1000 inheriting the same VVT technology as the MotoGP prototype, to ensure it produces strong low-down torque and midrange, without sacrificing top-end power, along with other elements including a finger-follower valve train and stacked intake funnels.
MotoGP technology and knowhow also extends to a full suite of electronics found on the GSX-R1000R, which comprises of a 10-stage, lean angle-sensitive traction control system and launch control, plus cornering ABS and a bi-directional quickshifter and auto-blipper.
Available in dealerships from March, the MotoGP replica GSX-R1000R comes with an RRP of £16,099, while the GSX-R1000 is priced at £13,599. For more information, click here.
