Suzuki GSX r 1000

On September 22, 2006, Suzuki revealed a significantly updated GSX-R1000 for 2007 at the Paris motor show. The new bike gained 14 lb (6.4 kg) over the 2006 model which was due to its new exhaust system and new emissions regulations. To counter this weight increase, Suzuki claimed improved aerodynamics along with a faster revving engine and larger throttle body to increase power to 168 hp (125 kW) @ 11,500 rpm. Although not a completely new model, the engine and chassis have been updated. It also featured three different engine mapping configurations, selectable via two buttons located on the right handlebar. One up, and one down arrow to cycle between Mode A (Unrestricted), Mode B (Reduced power until 50% throttle is applied), and Mode C (Reduced power throughout the rpm regardless of throttle application). It also received a Hydraulic clutch.
