Photoshoot of the Week: March 16th-22nd 2020 – Suzuki GSX-R1000R & Berta

Happy birthday Suzuki! The Japanese motor corporation has completed 100 years as a company. Suzuki was established on 15th March 1920 as a silk weaving company, which, in 1954, provided the basis for the birth of Suzuki Motor Corporation, one of the main automotive companies in Japan. But the history books tell that the company’s first motor vehicle was a motorbike, the 1952 Power Free, followed by the succ4ssful Diamond Free DF model in 1953. However, these models were nothing more than bicycles with a 50 cc engine and a petrol tank: the first real motorcycles produced arrive with the name of “Colleda”: the 1954 model is considered the rarest Suzuki motorbike ever.
Some Suzuki have marked the first in the history of motorcycling: the Colleda Seltwin SB of ’58 is the first motorcycle in the world with a 2-stroke two-cylinder engine and electronic ignition, the T20 of 1965 was the fastest “two-half” on the market, the T500 was the first production bike with a 500cc 2-stroke twin-cylinder engine while the 1991 DR Big 800 still holds the record of “4-stroke single-cylinder more large never mounted on a mass-produced motorcycle”.
On the other hand, one of Suzuki’s great qualities is that of creating real iconic motorcycles like the Van Van, born in 1974, or the “turbocharged” XN85 and the charming Katana. Anyway Suzuki produced its masterpiece in the superbike world: while the RG250 Gamma gave life to the sportbike famous dynasty in 1983, the GSX-R 750 made its debut in 1985, the first “Gixxer” in history.
In the 1970s, Suzuki company established itself in the motorcycle racing world winning world championships in the premier 500 cc class. After retiring from MotoGP in 2011, Suzuki made its come back in 2015 in the GSX-RR currently driven by the Spanish racers Joan Mir and Alex Rins, which were heavy favourites for MotoGP 2020. Sadly, much like all global sport, MotoGP is on hiatus amid the spread of the coronavirus pandemic with the opening round currently scheduled for Jerez on May 1st-3rd, though it is expected this will be pushed back again as Spain reels from a sharp increase in cases and deaths.
To all Spanish brothers and sisters: even if we do know that in this difficult situation it’s very hard to take comfort in anything, just like our silly few words, we’re sure that, as in other terrible situations, better times will come. Meanwhile, while we must stay home to protect ourselves and our loved ones, we celebrate both the Suzuki anniversary and the battle of the Spanish people posting some of the better photos made by the amazing Spanish bikergirl and tenocious rider Berta along with her Suzuki GSX-R1000R! Stay strong: all you racers will be again riding in the streets sooner than you think, and – believe me – bikergirls like Berta will be at your head!

Suzuki GSX-R1000 is still the superbike par excellence for the vast majority of fans. This motorcycle combines the power and agility that riders expect from a Suzuki flagship sports bike, with an enviable track record for Superbike victories and which is still a tough nut to beat. The 2020 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 is now equipped with the bidirectional quick-shift gearbox, which was previously only available on the GSX-R1000 R. Today, even the less tracked version of the Japanese four-cylinder gives quick and effective changes both by inserting and climbing the six relationships.
The most desired sportbike on the market presents itself at the start of the 2020 season with a livery that recalls the world of MotoGP. The blue color and racing graphics highlight the athletic forms of the superstructures. Customers can appreciate the full equipment, which includes front braided hoses and bidirectional Quick Shifter.
The windtunnel-tested attributes of the GSX-R1000 are apparent at a glance. In front, the fender uprights multitask as supports for the close-fit fender, but they also protect the swept areas of the fork tubes. The uprights act as shunts to guide the incoming air away from the tube and into the slipstream as it passes over the engine cowlings in a bid to lower drag and improve penetration.
Up top, a smoked bubblescreen forms the rider’s pocket with standoff mirrors mounted on the mullions, and I have to gig the factory for missing an opportunity to integrate the blinkers with the mirrors; a fairly major oversight on a bike that could potentially see a track at some point in its life.
A compact LED headlight rides recessed between two ram-air induction ports in the tip of the nose, a detail that delivers a roughly 2.5-percent increase in power once you get it up to speed. Clip-on bars pull you forward to encourage a prone riding position and that tendency is reinforced by the jockey-mount footpegs and the flat, forward-sloped top of the 4.2-gallon fuel tank.
Saddle height is typically high at 32.48 inches off the deck and this will undoubtedly tax riders with short inseams, but it’s to be expected on a bike that’s built for the bends. Nothin’ for it. An abbreviated p-pad and fold-up footpegs completes the passenger’s package for a brave friend. On the flip-side, strike the footpegs from the bike ahead of racedays and cover the p-pad for a solo/racer look.
Aerodynamic considerations dictate the shape of the tail and position of the LED taillight at its terminus, and out back is the usual mudguard/plateholder/turn-signal assembly that concentrates the gear in the rear and makes it easy to remove as a unit if you actually want to race on a track. Overall, the outside of the Gixxer looks pretty much like last year with the exception of the addition of a two-tone paint scheme, but the real magic is hidden beneath the skin.
For those who love driving on the track, enthusiasts can count on the GSX-R1000R racing version with exclusive features: Launch Control, Cornering ABS, Showa BFF fork and Showa BFRC lite monoshock. Another peculiarity of the GSX-R1000R 2020 is the adoption of a slot in the frame that allows you to vary the position of the swingarm pivot, as required by the new international sports regulations.
