Suzuki GSX-R 1000
The Suzuki GSX-R1000 is a sport bike in Suzuki‘s GSX-R motorcycle series. It was debuted in 2001 to replace the GSX-R1100 and is powered by a 988 cc (60.3 cu in) inline four-cylinder, four-stroke engine that is liquid-cooled.
2003 (K3, K4)
After three years on the roads and racing tracks, Suzuki released a new version of the GSX-R1000 in late September 2002. Suzuki engineers had been working on the three factors that contributed to a fast bike’s speed: weight, power, and handling. The GSX-R1000 from 2003 was enhanced in all three areas. It was lighter, had more power and torque, and handled better.
The bike’s physical dimensions were nearly identical to the previous year’s model. The seat height and total height were somewhat reduced, but the geometry of the bike remained same. The already robust aluminum alloy frame was redesigned and reinforced with internal ribs, and the headlamp and tail fairing were modified. The frame and wheels had both been black-coated.
The front brakes have also been replaced. Suzuki opted to forego the six-piston brakes. The redesigned radially placed four-piston calipers are 30 grams lighter and grip smaller 300 mm (11.8 in) discs, saving another 300 g. (11 oz). Suzuki claims that the redesigned brakes, although being smaller, give superior stopping and turn-in performance.
The headlights of the 2003 GSX-R1000 were positioned vertically to allow the front ram-air intakes to be moved 20 mm (0.79 in) closer to the bike’s centerline. The new design was heavily influenced by the Hayabusa‘s appearance. The instruments, too, were altered.
The engine’s cylinder displacement remained unchanged at 988 cc (60.3 cu in), but more power/torque and better throttle response were obtained by adding four ventilation holes between the cylinders to equalize crankcase pressure beneath the pistons, moving the air intake closer to the centerline, and upgrading the engine management system from a 16-bit to a 32-bit ECU. To save an additional 1.32 lb (0.60 kg), the complete exhaust system was built of titanium, and the tail light was replaced with LEDs.
The 2003 model was carried over to 2004 with no notable changes.
