The world of superbikes requires no introduction to the Suzuki GSX-R series of production racers, and this one owner GSX-R1000 K2 has covered just 1,010 miles from new. Factory original in Pearl Still White/Pearl Suzuki Deep Blue, (Code L99). The paint finish is simply outstanding with all faring and trim in near perfect order and just two miniscule chips barely visible. The original decals have been preserved. All identification markers including the stock chassis stamp, build plate and factory stickers such as the tyre information guide remain intact. The single seat cowling is currently fitted and the optional pillion seat comes with the bike unused and still in the original packaging. A legendary road-going racer preserved in outstanding condition.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 988cc liquid cooled DOHC 16v liquid cooled four-cylinder engine features weight-reducing designs such as dished-dome forged pistons running in Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) plated cylinders. A huge power output of 160hp at 10,800rpm and 81.1 lb.Ft of torque at 8500rpm enables a quoted top speed of 180mph and 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds! The engine and all ancillaries are spotlessly clean with all stickers, labels and identity markers as new. Finally, the six-speed close-ratio constant-mesh gearbox operates perfectly. The bike is mechanically seamless and totally standard including the original exhaust system. Widely considered at the time to be ‘The King of Superbikes’.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Hollow three spoke 17” cast-aluminium wheels are lightweight and rigid, and present perfectly. Factory original Bridgestone Battlax tyres of size 120/70 ZR17 front and 190/50 ZR17 rear show masses of tread with no visual degradation but should be replaced if use is intended while retaining the originals. The high-performance braking system features twin front discs with rigid differential-bore 6-piston callipers and rear disc with small and lightweight dual-opposed piston calliper.
This UK Suzuki GSX-R1000 K2 was registered new on the 19th October 2002 by main agent, Best of Bikes in Newbury. The first and only owner, purchased the bike and has covered a mere 1,010 fair weather miles. The mileage is tracked and fully verified with regular MOT testing despite the minimal use and MOT records dating back to the very first in 2005. The full book pack including service book is present along with two Suzuki keys with code tag. The spare key has never been used and still has the plastic sheath. A major service including spark plugs, coolant and brake fluid has been carried out in May 2023 at a Suzuki Main Dealer with evidencing invoice and service stamp to add to the history file. Highly collectible and utterly pristine.
