Get Excited About the 2021 Suzuki Lineup
Suzuki has some new models for the 2021 model year and that should get you pretty excited. This comes after a big year last year with the return of the Katana nameplate and the addition of some real winners on the adventure bike side of things.
This year is the company celebrates its 100th anniversary, and that means there are some special edition sportbikes to choose from. If those don’t suit your fancy, there should be something else in the company’s lineup that will pique your interest. Let’s dive in.
2021 Suzuki Sportbikes
2021 Suzuki GSX-R1000R 100th Anniversary Edition
To help honor the 100th anniversary of the company with some special new models, and we’ll start with the GSX-R1000R 100th Anniversary Edition. The motorcycle features a new, special livery and all that you would expect from a GSX-R at the pinnacle of Suzuki’s lineup.
The motorcycle features a 999cc four-cylinder fuel-injected liquid-cooled engine that’s mated to a 6-speed constant mesh gearbox. There’s Brembo brakes, some modern sport suspension, LED lighting, and the bike makes about 200 hp. It’s as ready for the racetrack as Suzuki motorcycles come.
2021 Suzuki GSX-R750 100th Anniversary Edition
Love the 100th Anniversary vibe, but don’t want the literbike? Don’t worry, Suzuki made a 100th Anniversary GSX-R750, too. This bike harkens back to the sportbike that changed the landscape of motorcycling about 35 years ago—the original 1985 GSX-R750.
This new bike features all that you want to see on the middle-range GSX-R, including a 750cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected four-cylinder engine. That engine mates to a six-speed constant mesh transmission and the bike also gets Brembo brake calipers at the front, a Nissin brake caliper in the rear, an LED taillight, and sports suspension.
