2014 Suzuki GSX-R1000 SE Limited Production

08/17/2013 @ 11:43 am, by Jensen Beeler35 COMMENTS


Celebrating 50 years in the United States, Suzuki has a “special edition limited production” Suzuki GSX-R1000 for the 2014 model year. Only fifty units of this machine will be sold to brand enthusiasts in the USA (100 units worldwide), with the 2014 Suzuki GSX-R1000 SE Limited Production debuting today at the Indianapolis GP.

Like the 2013 Suzuki GSX-R1000 “One Millionth” Special Edition we saw late last year, the machine is mostly a cosmetic exercise. Highlights include a chrome-plated frame, and a polished chrome rims that have blue spokes. Other blue bits abound, for +1,000 biker boyz bling points.

If this sort of thing gets you going, you’ll have to check with your local Suzuki dealer about getting one. As of this moment, pricing and availability have not been announced. An attractive, though entirely unmoving, machine — you will find photos after the jump.

    Blech… with MC technology coming so far in the last few years… it seems that design in general has taken 10 steps back. To think that the Gixxer was one of the better looking bikes for years… this thing is absolutely butt ugly.

  2. David says:

    Could this be any more retarded? If Suzuki had any sense they’d paint it like the 85-87 livery. Old people like me would be stoked, and it would make sense, much like the VFR did several years ago. These guys are out of touch. Marketing to squids.

  3. coreyvwc says:

    HAHAHA wow that looks awful! Even for Suzuki, this is an impressive feat. If you were to tell me that the cast of Jersey Shore is running the design department at Suzuki I would not be surprised at all….

  4. Grand Prix 34 says:

    Once again Suzuki has lost the plot!

  5. Chris,S. says:

    My god,When will suzuki stop making the most butt ugly bike on the planet.

  6. jonesti says:

    Looks as if someone ran thru the local squid store with a magnet.

  7. L2C says:

    (It doesn’t matter.)

  8. Mariani says:

    Aren’t you guys overreacting a little?
    It looks immature with all those blue-accented bits, granted, but the bike itself [the normal one] looks rather nice.
    With that said, if Suzuki is so keen into making a 100-unit special run of the gixxer, why not try and do something with the kit?
    For crying out loud, they could have applied anything we’re likely to see on the next model and call it a day.

  9. JCB says:

    Lipstick on a pig.

  10. Slangbuster says:

    Very nice……..Looks like it was designed by Rosie O’Donnell and Martin Sheene in rehab. Will Suzuki throw in a bright blue helmet Mohawk ? Unbelievable. No wonder they went bankrupt. Gives the term “Bold New Graphics” a brand new twist. I’m still laughing…………

  11. twoversion says:

    why in gods name…..

  12. Gonzo says:

    While it is very ugly, it is not THE most ugly. That would be the Hyabusa.

  13. Dc4go says:

    I want one with Chrome fairings!! Seriously who’s running Suzuki?? WTF?

  14. damn says:

    So no new suzuki gsxr1000 in 2014 then? to bad i realy thought they would bring a gixxer like the new prototype for gp’s. now they again make a realy ugly bike. after 2005 it went downhill every year.!

  15. smiler says:

    That is so pathetic as a limited edition. They should just stick with Yoshimura making their limited editions.

    It looks like the Santorini version.

  16. Shawn says:

    It looks like Suzuki is trying to appeal to a … ummm… *certain demographic* with this particular bike, but they’re missing some key elements. This bike still needs a 12″ extended swingarm, a 280-series rear tire, suspension lowering, removal of one front brake and rotor, tribal graphics, and blue LED lighting in the engine bay and rear end. For an additional $1000, they can zip tie an NOS bottle to the swingarm.

  17. paulus - Thailand says:

    colours are a bit too “HRC”….

  18. The Lawyer says:

    The only upgrades required:

    Brembo Master brake cyclindar.

    Steel braided brake lines.

    Sliiper cltuch.

    Quick shifter.


    Screw the this nonesense.

  19. Kaw4Life says:

    Sorry, not doing it for me. Maybe if it looked more the the ’86 1100.

  20. firehawk says:

    Horrible. Absolutely horrible.

  21. Craig says:


    the blue case covers and fork tubes are absolutely squid material… Really Suzuki? The old v- storm now looks delicious thanks to this beast.
    They have so many “race” editions to choose from and they come up with this clown parade?

    So very sad!

    re: “It looks like Suzuki is trying to appeal to a … ummm… *certain demographic* with this particular bike”

    YAAHHHTTZEEE…!!! I don’t fault Suzuki, ’cause this is exactly what most Suzuki’s end up looking like around here. most are much, much worse. trust me, I have pictures taken over the past 10 years to prove it.

    BTW, Suzuki displaced the whole of Ducati Island from the spot they’ve had for the past 5 years at indy. well either that, or ducati gave it up…?

    re: “Marketing to squids.”

    don’t hate. I’ll say one thing, those squids WILL come off the dime for a gixxer. around here, gixxers are the bike you buy, when you don’t wanna have to “think” about the bike you’re buying. see what I did there.

    also, it’s the bike you buy, when you don’t want to be razzed by your friends for not buying a bike that can keep up when running from the cops. just one man’s long time (but keen) observation. matt mladin’s race success now perpetuates in the form of “street cred”.

  23. Norm G. says:

    re: “So no new suzuki gsxr1000 in 2014 then? to bad i realy thought they would bring a gixxer like the new prototype for gp’s.”

    now you’re starting to see the insanity of them wasting time/money in grandprix. if the objective is to build and sell a better gixxer…? then just cut to the quick and BUILD AND SELL A BETTER GIXXER…! it’s not like they don’t know what this entails…? they’ve only done it without fail for 25 YEARS…!?!?

    there was no MotoGP when the created the limited edition RR with a ducati style dry clutch in ’89. there was no MotoGP when they gave the 750 fuel injection in ’96. there was no MotoGP when they introduced the gsxr1300 to replace the gsxr1100 in ’99. there was no MotoGP when they spun off the fire breathing gsxr1000 in ’01.

    laymen ignorant to this developmental timeline should hopefully see a reoccurring theme…? this is just scratching the surface.

  24. mak lampir says:

    what’s the new thing? only put a lipstick everywhere..just look at kawasaki zx10r. compare the 2009 and 2011..very different face, frame and character .

    what a shame.. suzuki, give gixxer 100% new face.. not just a make up..

  25. The GSX-R. is no longer the hard-edged sport bike it once was, and it isn’t just the paint job, the the overall design and silhouette is actually very similar to the old Katanas from the late 90s. This is not a RR, it’s a very ugly Very bland compromise, tame and lame. I wouldn’t ride it.

  26. Singletrack says:

    I’m sure the product planners at Suzuki weren’t given much of a budget to celebrate with, considering the auto division went bankrupt this year, and that motorcycle division didn’t import many bikes to North America in 2010. They’re probably happy just to be in business for 2014.

  27. riverismine says:

    for god sakes Suzuki change the rim design… its-bad enough o have the ugliest bike on the planet but why we have to have the ugliest rims too..

    btw…i own a 05 and 06 gixxer 1000 so i got a right to criticize them

  28. Singletrack says:

    And maybe blue anodizing was on sale :)

  29. For those who haven’t been paying attention to the business side of Suzuki, the motorcycle division was never in trouble financially, the motorcycle division has always been profitable. The problems began when the rest of the company thought they could capitalize on the motorcycle division’s brand. Unfortunately all they succeeded in doing was undermining one of the top brands in the world, and weakening their motorcycle company which was dominant for so long in sport bikes through the late 90s and into the 2000s. And here is the result, Suzuki motorcycles paying the price for the failures of other divisions.

  30. TwoWheelLoo says:

    Chrome??? Suzuki should’ve done something more special in terms of mechanical… nope, purely cosmetic.

  31. Norm G. says:

    re: “The problems began when the rest of the company thought they could capitalize on the motorcycle division’s brand.”

    just got multiple texts. HYUNDIA, HONDA, and BMW all say attempting to retail automobiles in the US isn’t the worse idea they’ve ever heard…? :)

  32. Norm G. says:

    re: “the the overall design and silhouette is actually very similar to the old Katanas from the late 90s.”

    way harsh and untrue. see, now you’re just being mean. LOL

  33. ALI ALGHANIM says:

    I prefer the black anyway. And i used to own the gsx-r 1000 2010 and the performance is ace.

    But you Suzuki guys, you got to do something about the painting, it became very ridiculous over the last few years. You should of done something worth rather than this.

    Nice design….
