Suzuki GSX concept harbingers next gen superbikes

Suzuki GSX concept

The concept features a design that is an evolution of its current inline 4-cylinder models.

The Suzuki GSX Concept, a smooth and aerodynamic clay model design study, which will be showcased at the fast approaching Tokyo Motor Show has been unveiled online via a single image. Suzuki says that the concept “gives form to Suzuki’s inline-four sportbike-making spirit and evokes a cocoon from which the company’s future sportbike models will be born.”

The next generation versions of Hayabusa, GSX-R1000 and GSX-S1000 would derive their cues form this concept. The concept features signature Suzuki headlamp design which is complemented by what look like air vents on either side. A tall windscreen, massive fuel tank, wide tailpiece and stubby silencer canister are the other salient features of the design concept.

The new GSX-R1000 is expected to make its world premiere at EICMA, Milan in November 2015. A new Hayabusa with a renewed design could put Suzuki back on top in a segment which is currently dominated by the Kawasaki ZX14R. The upcoming Suzuki superbikes are also expected to sport a new family of in-line four-cylinder petrol engines.

Suzuki has also filed a patent for a turbocharged hybrid technology paired to a litre class engine. The system employs two Motor Generator Units (MGU) to increase power without compromising on fuel economy. The Japanese bike maker also has few other interesting concepts up its sleeve for Tokyo Motor Show.
