Unveiled at a preseason MotoGP test at Sepang, Malaysia, the new livery is an evolution of the eye-catching blue with bold Suzuki wording, but for 2018 introduces the use of a stealthy black to the usual yellow details, and is available on both the GSX-R1000R and GSX-R1000.
Available in dealerships from March, the MotoGP replica GSX-R1000R comes with an RRP of £16,099, while the GSX-R1000 is priced at £13,599.
Halsall Racing and Tommy Bridewell will reunite for the 2018 British Superbike season, with the likeable West Country rider campaigning the new GSX-R1000. He will be joined in the Movuno.com-backed outfit by Tom Ward in the Superstock 1000 class.Read More
Suzuki is bringing in the new year by launching a new finance offer, which allows customers to build their own bespoke deal that best suits their needs. Available on a range of models in the 2018 lineup, the offer allows customers to choose either a 2% APR and two-year agreement, 3% APR over three years, or 4% APR over four years. Customers can also choose between a PCP agreement or opt for a hire purchase deal, with a minimum deposit of £199.
The new offer is available on both the V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 1000 - as well as the XT variants of both adventure machines and the new GT models - the new GSX-R1000, plus the GSX-R-powered GSX-S1000, GSX-S1000F, and the GSX-S750. The new Burgman 400 and the bigger Burgman 650 are also available as part of the offer, as is the new SV650X and the standard SV650 machine, and the iconic Hayabusa.
Suzuki GB national sales manager, Jonathan Martin, launched the new offer, saying, “Our latest offer really allows customers to tailor the deal to best suit their needs. A lot of customers will prefer the PCP option, paying lower monthly repayments and being in a position to change for another new machine in two, three, or four years. Others will prefer to continue paying per month, with no final payment, and own the bike outright at the very end. This offer gives people the choice, while both types of customer can still enjoy the benefit of selecting the term of their agreement and, as a result, the APR. It gives customers the control when buying a new Suzuki for the season ahead.”
SR75 World Team Suzuki claimed a double podium finish at round one of this year's Arenacross championship, with Cyrille Coulon and three-time champion Thomas Ramette finishing second and third overall in the main event.
Racing the all-new RM-Z450 for the first time in 2018, it was a tale of two different routes to the main event for both riders. Coulon dominated his heat races, taking two wins to get his night off the perfect start.
In contrast, his teammate, Ramette, raced to fourth in his opening heat, but suffered some bad luck in heat two when he stalled his machine. He finished ninth. It meant the defending champion was forced to proceed through the last chance qualifier in order to make the main event.
As the gate dropped for the night's final time, Coulon and Ramette both made a scalding start to get away at the front. There, they raced long and hard for the win, eventually coming away with second and third placed finishes to get the 2018 Arenacross series off to a solid start.
Team manager, Geoff Walker, said after the event, "The guys were amazing on what was a pretty wild night in Manchester. Cyrille bossed both of his heats, while Thomas never gave up despite some horrendous bad luck. Coming through the LCQ to make the main was a testament to the man's determination.
"For both riders to then put on a display in the main and smash a 2-3 finish was breathtaking, and it's a solid start to the tour. Congratulations to the guys, and of course, to Charles Le Francois on his victory."
