Suzuki America has unveiled a 2016 Commemorative Edition GSX-R1000 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last weekend.
The new model pays homage to the GSX-R750s introduced in 1986. It sports the same red-and-black color scheme as Yoshimura’s GSX-R750 race bike which he piloted at the Suzuka 8 Hour endurance races in the 1980s. In 1986, Kevin Schwantz also raced a GSX-R750 in the same red-and-black color scheme during his 1986 AMA Superbike campaign.
The 2016 Red-and-Black Commemorative Edition GSX-R1000 model joins the Blue-White Commemorative Edition GSX-R1000 model that was recently unveiled by the Suzuki Ecstar MotoGP factory team.
The Commemorative Edition GSX-R1000 is distinguished from the base model by an exclusive “30 Years of Performance” badge on the gas tank and special wheel striping.
Unfortunately, there is no word on pricing at the moment. For note, the base MSRP on the 2015 GSX-R1000 is $13,899.
