Rendered: 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000

While the Suzuki GSX-R600 & GSX-R750 were updated for the 2011 model year, it seems like Suzuki’s crowned king of the liter-bike class hasn’t see a touch-up since the Reagan administration. This is due in part because of Suzuki’s staggered development life-cycle, but primarily rests on the motorcycle industry apocalypse that many just refer to as the past recession. Because of the economic downturn, Suzuki had an overabundance of motorcycles sitting in its domestic warehouses, causing the Japanese company not to bring over any more fresh units for the North American market.

Never fear though, as the economy thaws, motorcycles are scrapping bottom and lifting off again. Accordingly, rumors about the 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 are starting to be whispered by the gixxer loyal, and to help fuel those thoughts, French magazine Moto Revue has another outstanding render by Jérôme Vannesson. MotoRevue and Vannesson have been pretty close in the past, with their renders picking up many of the major cues found on the real-life motorcycles they imagine.

It brings up some interesting thoughts on how they can be consistently close with their renders, but the bigger point right now is that if the 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 is anything like this portrayl, Suzuki fans have a lot to look forward to. Check out MotoRevue’s website for more renders.

    I only see 3 original shapes on this photoshopped 2009-11 gixer (front vent, bottom missing in front, and side vents). As a person who uses photoshop regularly I’d say this is pretty half-assed and unoriginal.

    Not giving me BikeWood…thus…FAIL.

    oddly reminds me of a SV650 behind the front wheel. Somehow looks a bit bare there the way the fairing swoops backwards then forwards so sharply on the side of the engine. I think they are generally getting uglier and that they were much closer to the money on the K7.

    There’d be a lot of drag at the front there with the missing fairing…

    JD ;)

    draw a straight line from the leading bottom edge of the headlight to the leading edged of the bottom fairing. lightly curve that line whilst pinching the sides towards the centre line. 8^) That’s the start…people worry the looks to much and not enough the aero’s or pushing race rules to the bleeding edge with the production bikes.

    Oh and lose the crap telescopic frontends people…there’s better out there.

    The upper fairing swoops down too much, and it needs to cover the header pipes from the side view.
