For all you (rich) Gixxer lovers, there is some seriously good news. Suzuki is commemorating 25 successful years of the GSX-R badge with a 25th anniversary special GSX-R 1000s. The final 25th Anniversary GSX-R – a brown and cream GSX-R1000s has been unveiled by the company.
The bike is available at a price of £11,000 (about 8 lakh rupees in the UK) and available to order online only through www.imgsx-r.com. There is hardly any difference in terms of technical specifications. There are only a few subtle changes on the bike apart from the paint scheme which distinguish this SE bike from its regular version. The only performance related parts changed are the end cans, which are Yoshimura GP Evo road legal silencers.
There are only 1000 such bikes on sale worldwide. The new paint scheme is unique to the anniversary bikes with a set of wheel rims stripes.
You have to pay about Rs 50,000 extra for the SE version in the UK. What for? Well, in material terms, over the standard GSX-R1000, there’s a numbered plaque on the headstock, and you get a certificate of authenticity too. Then there is a mention of the SE distinction on the end can and on the central part of the clip-ons well.
