Just a couple of days ago we revealed the Buell 1125RR, a controversial $39,995 racers-only bike built for AMA American Superbike racing. Mat Mladin and many readers expressed frustration at the rule bending that's allowing an expensive limited-production machine to compete in a class intended for street bikes. Well here's Yoshimura's take on the new rules, but don't worry; the Suzuki GSX-R1000RR should be street-legal and available to the public.

Based on the 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000, the Yoshimura Race Shop has applied
everything it's learned from racing in AMA American Superbike and
applied it to the RR. That includes extensive engine and suspension
work as well as visual tweaks. Full details are below.



Right now, there's no word on price or availability. But given that
1125RR, it's likely that we could see the GSX-R1000RR made available at
dealers. Of course, since Yoshimura parts are available to the public,
you could always build your own bike to this spec, or pick and choose
the parts you want.
