    Now, is spending more than one million pesos for the Suzuki GSX-R 1000R worth it? We’ll find out as we check the top three reasons to buy this track-ready motorcycle.

    1. Track ready

    As we’ve mentioned earlier, the Suzuki GSX-R 1000R is a track-ready machine.

    Powering the motorcycle is a 999 cubic centimeter engine mated to a six-speed constant mesh transmission. The said setup produces enough horsepower and torque to allow fast acceleration as well as sustained power delivery in racing.

    The four-stroke, four-cylinder, dual overhead camshaft engine is also liquid-cooled. So, it can better endure long track sessions despite running fast-paced laps.

    Stopping power comes from twin disc brakes at the front and a single disc brake at the rear, which help in deceleration.

    Its 17-inch wheels wrapped in stock 120/70 (front) and 190/50 (rear) tires also ensure decent traction while on the circuit.

    2. Head-turner

    The Suzuki GSX-R 1000R also has looks that reflect its race-ready attitude.

    At its front is an aerodynamic front fairing with a small windshield, a small headlamp, and vents at the front cowling, which contributes to the overall performance of the motorcycle. The said fairings are connected to the side panels that not only serve as a covering for the engine and the Suzuki GSX-R 1000R’s other components, but also makes the motorcycle more fluid.

    Suzuki also slapped the GSX-R 1000R with a sharp-looking engine cover — also contributing to the motorcycle’s streamlined body.

    It dons a tapered rear end and a large exhaust pipe that looks uber sporty.

    Those looking to field the Suzuki GSX-R 1000R on track or even ride it on the streets can select from three eye-catching colors: Metallic Matte Black, Metallic Mystic Silver, and our favorite, Metallic Triton Blue.

    3. Viable travel companion

    The Suzuki GSX-R 1000R is not only at home at race circuits but is also comfortable traversing national highways and major thoroughfares in the Philippines.

    It is also an ideal companion for those traveling long distances as it an expressway-legal ride and can handle most tollroads with ease.

    Just a gentle reminder that whether one will ride the Suzuki GSX-R 1000R on the road or on the track, proper riding gear is still strongly recommended. Afterall, a bump that will dent a car might send a rider to the hospital.

    Final thoughts

    The Suzuki GSX-R 1000R is a good ride for both those visiting the track or looking to enjoy long rides outside of the metro. Sure, it may cost as much as a decent car but that much money puts you in a two-wheeled steed that was built with reliable Japanese engineering. It also boasts power and performance that can help you win both in and outside of the track.
