RideApart contributor Susanna Schick wrote about the unveiling of the 2014 Suzuki GSX-R1000 SE at MotoGP this year, alongside the Ultimate Busa project. These additional photos provide a little more insight for those of us not in Orlando this week. Only 100 of these GSX-R1000 SE motorcycles will be made, with 50 designated for the U.S. and the other 50 designated for the world market.
Initially the GSX-R1000 SE got a negative reaction, but we think the matte white paired with the blue covered clutch, generator, and engine sprocket cover look pretty cool. Personally, I’m a fan of the blue on the gauge as well.
What do you think? This thing growing on anyone else or am I the only one?
