Touted as the naked version of a GSX-R, the Suzuki Virus 1000 comes with the same chassis and suspension, a slightly larger engine of the GSX-R1000, and ofcourse with a number of redesigned components. The Suzuki Virus 1000 comes equipped with a headlamp assembly from a GSR750, high, wide streetfighter aluminium handlebars, a custom-built exhaust and side panels.
There are two choices of the silencers: a low-swung MotoGP-type (is integrated near the swingarm arch) and a classic 2-can design (for casual look).
With the same engine as Suzuki GSX-R1000, the Suzuki Virus 1000 churns out a peak power output of 185 PS at 12,000 rpm.
While the 2013 GSX-R 10000 selling for under $14,000 (€10,810), the naked Suzuki Virus 1000 comes with a price tag of $21,513 (CHF19,990 or €16,604).
