Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. announced more 2018 motorcycles that will soon be coming to dealerships in the United States during the 2017 EICMA. These returning models include championship caliber supersports, a pair of nimble and fun standard bikes, and a pair of adventure-ready mounts that are the smartest choice in the category.

This championship family of liter-class bikes return for 2018 with new colors and graphics for the GSX-R1000, the GSX-R1000 ABS, and the extraordinary GSX-R1000R. Each model uses the same 999.8cc, DOHC inline-four engine that produces great top-end power with a strong low to mid-range pull thanks to the exclusive Suzuki Variable Valve Timing system. They share a compact twin-spar type aluminum frame for nimble handling with loads of grip when cornering. The electronic rider aids, which collect dynamic information via a three axis, six direction Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) help advance rider performance to a level that can only be achieved on a GSX-R.
