At the 30th anniversary of the legendary GSX-R superbike, Suzuki is going to introduce the Team Yoshimura’s Suzuki race bike in a new special red and black livery. It is inspired from the original red and black livery of the 1986 GSX-R that was ridden by Kevin Schwantz. The new alluring red and black livery will be seen on Roger Hayden’s bike at the Indianapolis this weekend, and also at the 2015 MotoAmerica finale to be held in September. Suzuki GSX-R was first introduced to the world in 1986 and since then has been the most popular motorcycle offered by the Japanese auto maker.
GSX-R not only became one of the most successful motorcycles from Suzuki, but it also helped Suzuki to become all-time leader in the AMA Superbike racing series. There are no reports if Suzuki is going to introduce this livery in their production motorcycles. Speaking about the GSX-R’s 30th anniversary, Mr Don Sakakura, Sr. VP, Yoshimura R&D of America said, “We are excited to be able to do our part to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the GSX-R. We at Yoshimura are very pleased that we played a part in launching the GSX-R line in America in 1986 with Kevin Schwantz as our primary rider. It’s only appropriate that such an iconic motorcycle be honoured at one of the truly iconic racing circuits of the world.”
