Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe there's a GSX 1000. Please share a link if you're seeing otherwise, I'm not an expert on the Suzuki line, but I'll provide some of what I know. There's GSX-S1000, GSX-S1000F, GSX-R1000, and GSX-R1000R. 1. GSX-S1000 - Naked bike/street fighter. Has an older model GSX engine in it. Still an amazing engine and a hell of a lot of fun. Not 'intended' for the track but you can definitely have a great time if you choose to do so. Notably, they released new models this year, not sure what engine they have. 2. GSX-S1000F - Essentially the same as the S1000, but has a fairing set 3. GSX-R1000 - This is your track-oriented bike. Its got a more recent engine, more power, torque, etc. More aggressive riding position and you're getting more of the power train tech. While the 'non-R' models can handle aggressive riding, these are designed to be driven like bat out of hell. I'd imagine you're probably getting a better suspension and brakes package too. 4. GSX-R1000R - Think of it as the GSX-R with the top of the line brakes, suspension, etc. I actually don't know many of the details for this but you'll be paying extra.

Awesome thanks! Yea I was talking about the GSX-R1000R vs the GSXR-1000.


The_Re_Face

No prob! I forgot this was the GSXR specific subreddit, so that makes total sense now.

I think they both have quick shifters now but only the R1000R has launch control. R1000R has a better suspension (worth noting that both suspensions are probably phenomenal) and the R1000R has some electronic brake tuning assistance thing called "Motion Track Braking System"

Yea both have QS, didn’t know about the LC or the braking thing. Thanks for the info!

Unless you plan on taking it to the track I don’t think the RR model is worth the extra $$. Have you ever seen a non RR model babied anywhere? You can ride either as hard as you want and will never outride it. Your decision should be based on how you’ll use it.

I have the 2021 R and have used launch control a total of 2 times. Gimmick. Suspension alone can cost the 3k difference FYI (ohlins certainly would be). I got a great deal on my r but wouldn't have paid the extra (unless its like £10pcm more in which case up to you of course). I think it had better residuals so the finance was cheap for me. Either way, enjoy! Great bike.

Correct. Just suspension. But that huge for performance. If you just care about putting around it doesn’t make a difference. If you want a well set up bike the r is a huge improvement for the track.

hmmm looking at the website I saw a model called the **[gsx-r1000rz](https://suzukicycles.com/sportbike/2022/gsx-r1000rz)** but the info provided talks about the gsx-r1000r >2022 GSX-R1000RZ Overview In 1985, Suzuki revolutionized the sportbike category with the introduction of the original GSX-R750, and then created another milestone in 2001 with the introduction of the GSX-R1000.
