2016 Suzuki GSX-R1000

Troy Siahaan (Road Test Editor for Motorcycle.com) is one of my favorite people in the motorcycle industry, and he’s letting go of his Gixxer track bike because he’s too busy racing the Lightfighter.

I’ll leave the description to him, but he’s:
a.) super fast
b.) super well-connected, which is how he was able to get a bike like this
c.) super trustworthy. To be completely frank, I’d buy this for myself except I have a lead on a Honda NSR250F and I’d rather get that if I can fit on it. Let me know if you want one for yourself, because I’ve got…15 new ones coming to me. It’s a sickness, I’m sorry. But I’m loving the idea of selling my Ninja 400 track bike to get something that makes a little bit more power and weights over a 100+ less! That’s a story for a different day. Let’s go back to Troy’s bike for now:

This is essentially a Yoshimura-built GSX-R1000. It’s a blank-VIN frame as this bike was sent directly to Yosh to turn into a racebike.

– Yoshimura superbike head with cams, springs, retainers, head studs.
– Stock bottom end except for forged pistons installed by Bryce Prince, who confirmed the engine’s in good shape.
– BPR ECU tune. Currently set for pump gas and makes 192 hp on BPR dyno. U4.4 map is in ECU, just needs switch to access it. Should tickle 200 hp with that tune and U4.4.
– Yosh lightened crank
– GP Suspension 25mm cartridges
– Yosh shock linkage
– Yosh Swingarm pivot
– R6 calipers
– Braketech Superbike stainless rotors
– Vesrah XX pads (new)
– Beringer master cylinder w/remote adjuster
– Motion Pro throttle
– Öhlins steering damper
– CRG Clutch lever
– Woodcraft case covers
– Leo Vince full exhaust
– Light Tech chain adjusters
– Vortex rearsets
– Race fairing stay
– Vortex fuel cap
– Lightweight rear rotor
– Steel braided brake lines
– Includes spare wheels, extra (stock) swingarm and subframe, and brand new Zero Gravity Corsa windscreen

Here’s the part where you have to decide how confident you are in your abilities – there’s no electronics at all. Traction control, launch control, wheelie control, cappuccino machine – this doesn’t have any of that. You get a sweet motor and some ABS, that’s just about it. Troy says, “I’ve been told this bike used to do 1:45s at Buttonwillow. Not with me on it, but I fully believe the right rider on this bike could do it!” I am not that rider, but maybe you are?
