Other manufacturers have started to flood the motorcycle market with an all-new model for the last few years.
On the other hand, Suzuki took the most minimalistic approach by “updating” their range of motorcycles to meet Euro 5 emission standards while throwing in a couple of electronics aid.
At the end of the day, the current lineup, especially the GSX-R family, maintain almost the same looks and specifications.
However, new reports suggest the Japanese manufacturer plans introduce an all-new GSX-R1000 for 2022, replacing the current fifth-generation available in the market.
While there is no confirmation coming from the Hamamatsu headquarters, we can assume extensive upgrades are being done as part of a plan for Suzuki to return to the WorldSBK Championship.
Despite making notable success in MotoGP with Joan Mir winning the championship in 2020, Suzuki still lacks in the production-based competition.
We expect the upcoming GSX-R1000 to finally break the 200hp barrier to compete with the likes of Kawasaki ZX-10RR, Ducati Panigale V4R and the BMW M 1000 R.
Suzuki is also likely to include a customizable electronics aid, one of the most notable aspects where the GSX-R1000 is lacking compared to its competitors.
