Intermot 2012: Special Edition Suzuki GSX-R1000 Celebrates 1 Millionth Gixxer

Share this Article

Suzuki is celebrating the production of the 1 millionth motorcycle in the GSX-R family with a limited edition model.

Unveiled at the 2012 Intermot show in Cologne, Germany, the Millionth Edition 2013 Suzuki GSX-R1000 comes with a commemorative paint scheme, black Brembo brake calipers, pin-striped wheels, gold fork tubes and red fork caps, suspension spring and nose.

The top yoke also features a numbered Millionth Edition plate and the key is decorated with Suzuki’s red “R” logo.

Suzuki first introduced the GSX-R series in 1985 with the GSX-R750. Since then, Suzuki has added a number of models including the GSX-R1000 and the GSX-R600, and the discontinued GSX-R1100. There were also a couple of smaller-displacement models offered for some markets, such as the GSX-R250 and GSX-R400, but it’s not clear if they were included in the million units.

Suzuki has also created a website,  www.gsx-r1million.com, celebrating the history of the GSX-R sportbikes including a look at their various designs over the years and their racing successes.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.

    I have bought one engine brill paint great
    Handling and stopping excellent
    Negative side primer finish on inside engine cases
    In grey and can really be seen from right hand side
    And rough powder coat finish on swing arm
    In my opinion this lets the bike down
    Ps not even bothered it dose not have
    Traction control as I would not use it any way
    Apart from that great bike previous bike 06 plate
