Is this rendering of the new Suzuki GSX-R1000 accurate? It would be nice to think so but at this stage it’s just a concept published by Japanese motorcycle magazine Young Machine. The crew at Young Machine have a great deal of imagination and talent for creating these images, having mocked up many renders of upcoming motorcycles in the past though unfortunately their track record is fairly inaccurate of late.
That said, if the all new Suzuki superbike did resemble this concept, we would’t be complaining too much. It’s contemporary looking enough without being too out there and certainly would give the current GSX-R1000 a much needed fresh face. That modern appearance should hopefully go hand in hand with the modern package Suzuki is producing for the bike as per our previously posted rumor round-up.
It’s still up in the air as to when Suzuki will release their brand new flagship. Our sources have been somewhat contradictory on a timeframe. Some are still suggesting the bike will be unveiled in November this year while others are saying it will more likely be the year after. Given how old the current GSX-R1000 is, it can’t come soon enough and would help Suzuki capitalize on the success they’ve had on their fulltime return to MotoGP this year where both bikes are regularly finishing in the top 10.
