2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000

Faster evolution is a hallmark of the GSX-R1000’s engine. Put it all together and the GSX-R1000 offers incredible engine performance from idle to redline, smoother suspension performance, even more responsive handling and superior braking performance — exactly what you need to Own The Racetrack. For 2012 was introduced at a price of $ 13.799 MSRP
2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Engine Features Thinner material for the tappet skirts results in a weight saving of 2.5 grams per tappet, reducing inertial mass and allowing optimization of the valve lift curve.Thinner material for the valves' tappet skirts saves 2.5 grams per tappet, which reduces inertial mass and allows optimization of the valve lift curve.An Engine Control Module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has newly optimized settings to maximize the benefits of the new 4-2-1 exhaust system and other engine refinements.Suzuki Ram Air-Direct (SRAD) air intakes are positioned close to the centerline of the fairing to provide optimum intake efficiency. The intake-duct openings feature a louvered design that heightens intake efficiency, while also contributing to weight reduction.Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system uses two butterfly valves (primary and secondary) in each throttle body barrel. As the rider opens and closes the primary valve, the ECM reads the throttle position, engine speed, and gear position and incrementally adjusts the secondary valve to maximize the intake-charge velocity.

2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Transmission Features the back torque-limiting clutch incorporates the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) for light clutch pull and optimum clutch performance. The back-torque limiter offers smoother downshifting, and thereby lets the rider take full advantage of engine output during deceleration.
