Suzuki Rolls Out Special Edition GSX-R1000R Phantom – With MotoGP Tech, 199hp

Inspired by the iconic 2006 GSX-R1000 K6, the Hamamatsu factory has revived the Phantom legacy with a special edition GSX-R1000R.

The Phantom is not just your regular GSX-R1000R with a different nameplate and paint job; this special edition motorcycle is also fitted with the same variable valve timing system that’s available on Suzuki’s MotoGP GSX-RR machine.

The 199hp inline 4-cylinder engine also comes with a bi-directional quickshifter, launch control, lean-angle sensitive traction control, three riding modes and a Yoshimura exhaust.

Suzuki also enhances the GSX-R1000R with track-focused brake and clutch lever guards, tank pad, fuel cap trim and a smoke double bubble screen.

The contrasting gold wheels and gold Showa Balance Free front fork goes well with the overall matte black livery.

According to the Japanese firm, the Phantom edition is the most powerful GSX-R ever built.

Other highlights include all LED light setup and fully digital LCD.

For those who are interested, the special edition GSX-R1000R is available in the UK for GBP17,499 (RM99k).
