11 Sep 2020: Suzuki GSX-R1000R 100th Anniversary Edition motorbike unveiled: Details here
To commemorate its 100th anniversary, Suzuki has unveiled a limited-run model of its flagship sports bike, called the GSX-R1000R 100th Anniversary Edition.
The premium motorcycle takes inspiration from the company's MotoGP Ecstar GSX-RR model and the Grand Prix two-wheelers of the 1960s.
It is offered in a blue and silver shade, but its production is limited to just 100 units.
Here are more details.

The sports bike packs a digital instrument console and an all-LED lighting setup.
It also has a kerb weight of 203kg and runs on blacked-out alloy wheels.
Fact: Power and performance
The Suzuki GSX-R1000R 100th Anniversary Edition draws power from a 999cc in-line, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The mill can generate a maximum power of 199hp at 13,200rpm and a peak torque of 117.6Nm at 10,800rpm.

Meanwhile, suspension duties on the motorbike are handled by 43mm Showa balance free front (BFF) forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
Fact: What about the pricing?
The limited-run Suzuki GSX-R1000R 100th Anniversary Edition carries a price-tag of around Rs. 16 lakh in India, excluding the import duties and taxes. However, it is unclear if the sports bike would make its way to our shores.
