The 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000: Which Color Do You Want?
A New White Color Scheme Is Available For The 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000!
Updated August 24, 2018
You’re either going to love this or hate it, but the 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R have an interesting white color scheme available – and we really dig it. White color schemes are tricky things though, not only do they require more cleaning than other options, but they toe a fine line between “ that’s freaking awesome” and “geez, that’s tacky.” We’re pretty sure that the new white color scheme available for the 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000 models is likely to divide opinion, so tell us what you think.
The 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Range Will Feature A White Paint Job
The new paint scheme takes its inspiration directly from the MotoGP prototype GSX-RR’s racing livery, but rather than plastered on a blue base, Suzuki have decided to opt for a more classic white and blue color combination instead, with more focus on the white…as you can see. White color options can be received one of two ways: you either love it or you hate it. We like it, but our level of taste is questionable at best…
Fortunately, it’s not the only color option that the 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000 models come with. Both the 2018 GSX-R1000 and top tier GSX-R1000R models will come in white, but they’ll also be available in a black color scheme too. The 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000 will be offered in black with some pretty eye-catching blue accents, while the higher spec 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000R will come with more subtle white and grey highlights instead. And of course, you’ll also be able to get the 2018 models in the MotoGP GSX-RR replica color scheme too, just like before, and for both liter class models.
The 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000 is priced at a reasonable $14,699 (or $15,099 for the ABS model) and will be arriving in US dealerships in December, 2017. The higher spec 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000R comes with a very attractive $17,199 price tag. It’s more expensive, but well worth the extra money. If you’re after a 2018 machine, we heartily recommend the 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000R, since it should be sensibly priced and comes equipped with a wide range of top-shelf goodies such as Showa Balance Free suspension, cornering ABS, launch control, an inertial 10-stage traction control system, an up and down quickshifter and an auto-blipper. That’s affordable fun, right there.
