#BestOf2017 – Suzuki GSX-R1000R
A MotoGP machine inspired motorcycle but completely road legal. A few years ago this would have been the stuff of dreams but as they say dreams do come true and so have the dreams of India’s big bike enthusiast. The Suzuki GSX-R1000R, or Gixer, as its popularly called, is vastly improved over the machine it replaces. Not only does it gets Showa’s fabulous Balance Free Forks (BFF) that we first saw on the Kawasaki ZX-10R but also a balance free monoshock at the rear. The litre-class liquid cooled inline four is super smooth and linear in delivery but is powerful enough to rip your arms out of your sockets. Acceleration is tarmac scorching and so is top speed. What is the most amazing thing about this 200bhp missile is that it’s handling is so confidence inspiring that even noobs wouldn’t feel particularly intimidated. Until they cane her, that is.
