Suzuki says goodbye to its most legendary model. There will be no more GSX-R1000

If you had told me just a decade ago that models like the Suzuki GSX-R1000 would be discontinued by the brand itself, at least I would have laughed. However, what seems impossible today can become reality tomorrow. A dark reality, to tell the truth, that stalks the large-displacement sports shoes that are currently among the brands' offerings.

The news comes to us from Visor Down, but if we also go to the official Suzuki Japan website, we can see how it indicates that the Suzuki GSX-R1000 It is currently out of stock. Something that surprises us in a negative way not only because of the loss it represents in historical and sporting terms for the Japanese firm.

Also because about a year ago the possibility was being considered that the Suzuki GSX-R1000 could be back in 2024. Everything was as a result of some leaked images from the patent registry, in which we could observe a series of improvements in aerodynamics, included within a sporty model similar to the lines that the brand's superbike has worn until now.

Likewise, previously there was talk that the GSX-R1000 would end up disappearing from the Suzuki catalog due to new anti-pollution regulations. Therefore, the brand would maintain the model until it ran out of stocks that until then it had in stock worldwide. Something that seems to have already happened if we let ourselves be guided by the official Suzuki Japan website.

Confirmed: Suzuki says goodbye to its most legendary model.  There will be no more GSX-R1000

Suzuki GSX-R1000, what now?

Saying goodbye to the GSX-R1000 is not exclusive to Suzuki, since Yamaha has also done the same with its YZF-R1. However, the Hamamatsu signing seemed a long time coming, since the brand had been giving signs of what was to come for quite some time. All of this is a consequence of his official withdrawal from the main sporting competitions, such as MotoGP and WSBK.

Currently, Suzuki is only present in the World Endurance Championship, where it also leads the championship with the team. Yoshimura SERT. This is the only halo of hope that the brand will rethink eliminating the GSX-R1000 of your current offer. Rather, it should take a step forward and launch a new 2025 variant adapted to the new anti-pollution requirements.

What better year than 2024 to rewrite the history of two wheels with a GSX-R1000 40th Anniversary, celebrating the first model baptized under the commercial name GSX-R and which shortly after would become the first GSX-R400, called internal code GK71b. We will cross our fingers.

Happy drivers
