2013 Suzuki Virus 1000

Two Swiss companies, Frankonia AG (Suzuki Switzerland) and Moto Virus AG, have created an aggressive and sporty beast, called the Suzuki Virus 1000.

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).
