2016 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Commemorative Edition Also Available in Red and Black

A new Commemorative Edition of the Suzuki GSX-R1000 superbike was announced by the House Hamamatsu, and in case you felt like the initial offering was a tad too retro, here's a new one for a change.

Most likely the undisputable kings of special edition motorcycles, Suzuki expands the 205 roster with yet another model that proudly displays the graphics scheme of the initial blue and white bike, but introduces a new color scheme.

Just like on many similar occasions, this Suzuki does not introduce anything new save the eye candy livery. Being the 30th anniversary year for the GSX-R family, it's understandable that the fans of these motorcycles will be looking to get their hands on the small-run series.

Competitive prices and smart financing help Suzuki push their bikes easily


One of the strong selling points of Suzuki's special edition motorbikes is that they are offered for only a small premium over the price of the stock trim. After resetting the US operations, Suzuki set in motion a special financing scheme that allows customers to get hold of their dream bikes more easily.

Even more, the scheme includes bonuses that get customers extra aftermarket parts at discounted prices, making their purchase easier on the budget. The 2016 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Commemorative Edition follows the trend and even if the price is yet to be announced, we can guess it will be a most attractive one compared to the base model.

The same engine specs for the 2016 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Commemorative Edition indicate that the bike produces 182.5 hp at 12,000 rpm, with a peak torque of 116.7 Nm (86 lb-ft) at 10,000 revs.

As cool as this machine may look, we know that some of those eyeing getting a liter Gixxer may hold their horses until this November, when Suzuki is expected to at least confirm the rumored new GSX-R1000.

If Hamamatsu is in fact working on an all-new Gixxer line-up is still rumor territory, and all hopes turn to the EICMA show in Milan, in mid-November. We will be present there and if the Japanese maker makes such a move, expect a ton of Suzuki live photos from us, just like last year.
