Suzuki UK announces a killer deal for the World Superbike fans, in the shape of a limited edition GSX-R1000 proudly displaying the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki livery. The recipe must be quite successful, as this is yet another special-edition Suzuki motorcycle which will complement the growing line-up… and which will definitely not be the last.
Just like the Tyco Edition 600 Gixxer we presented to you earlier, the Voltcom Crescent only shares the livery with the bikes Alex Lowes and Eugene Laverty are actually riding in the 2014 WSBK. Still, we’re talking about a major styling upgrade over the neat, but common series liter-class Gixxer, and with the UK branch of House Hamamatsu still in for all sorts of rebates and financing solutions (which seem to have been the key to success after Suzuki’s recent Chapter 11 bankruptcy misadventures), we can guess that these bikes will sell like hot cakes.

Suzuki will only produce 25 such motorcycles, and they will be equipped with a Yoshimura R77 exhausts, GB Racing engine covers and their rear seat cowls will be signed by Alex Lowes and Eugene Laverty. As for the rest of the technical details, these bikes are stock GSX-R1000 machines, with the Yoshimura silencer adding a bit to their 182 hp @12,000 rpm and 116 Nm (86 lb-ft) at 10,000 revs.

In the UK, the Voltcom Crescent GSX-R1000 is listed for €14,970 ($19,980), but with the ongoing rebate program, customers can claw it for an actual price of €13,720 ($18,310). The premium over the base edition is thus reduced to €1,250 ($1,665) and considering the Yoshimura upgrade, the price is quite fair. If you can get hold of such a bike, that is. A 25-unit run is not going to last too long, even though we’re not talking about the cheapest bike in the lot. Would Suzuki consider such a machine for the US? I hope they do, honestly.
