Suzuki's GSX-R1000 has seen incremental improvements over the years, but the 2009 model is the first all-new iteration of the flagship superbike since 2001. Countless superbike racing victories later, and the legendary Gixxer 1000 faces more pressure than ever for excellence.

A more compact twin spar frame shortens the wheelbase for more maneuverability, while a longer aluminum alloy swingarm is arched to accommodate new twin titanium exhaust cans. New radially mounted mono-block front brakes shave unsprung weight, as do new three-spoke cast aluminum wheels. New, race-inspired BPF (Big Piston Front-forks) by Showa feature rebound and compression valving adjustment screws on the fork caps.
