Suzuki: 2023 GSX-R1000 Pulled from EU, UK Markets


Suzuki’s elimination from WorldSBK and MotoGP has been fairly the mouthful to swallow – and now, we’re seeing the repercussion of failure to conform to Euro5 laws…this time, for the GSX-R1000

As of 2023’s lineup, motorbike communities hailing from Europe and the UK will now not be capable to buy a brand new GSX-R1000. The model’s determination to chop the enduring hooner follows the lower of Suzuki’s GSX-R600 and GSX-R750, forsaking the R125 and Hayabusa on EU and UK markets.

Right here within the US, we nonetheless have Suzuki’s gixxer line accessible…however for the way lengthy?

Emission restrictions are slowly trickling throughout the Atlantic and should finally have an effect on Suzuki’s America-bound bikes…although the Japanese producer nonetheless has one potential ace up their sleeve.

Again in 2019, the model filed patents for a variable-valve timing system (VVT). Ought to Suzuki make the choice to prioritize manufacturing of VVT, we (and MotorcycleSports) suppose Suzuki’s bikes might exhibit higher emission compliance, slowing the halt of the gixxer line’s retirement.
