Super exclusive Suzuki GSX-R 1000 ZSE

Suzuki has announced a new special edition, the GSX-R 1000 ZSE.  Only 100 GSX-R 1000 ZSEs will be made - and only 10 will make it over to the UK.

The ZSE gets a whole bunch of features on top of what you would find on the standard GSX-R 1000:

Matt silver bodywork with special graphics
Polished and chrome plated frame
Wheel rims machined and polished with wheel spokes finished with blue paint and clear coat
Blue anodised front fork adjuster, front damper bolt, chain adjuster, steering stem nut, rear swing arm pivot boss
Black anodised front caliper
Blue and clear coated clutch cover, generator cover, engine sprocket cover, rear shock spring
Polished and clear coated muffler, muffler cover and black anodised silencer end cap
Polished exhaust pipes
Polished and clear coated footrest guard
Matt black swing arm
Special speedometer panel design
Special serial number plate
Special key fob
Blue fuel tank cap, headlight inner, drive chain, seat
Black radiator, oil cooler

Other revisions include:

MotoGP Technology:  Throttle response and mid-range engine output have been boosted through the use of lighter pistons, lighter tappets and more aggressive valve lift curves. Delivers greater drive and acceleration for faster lap times.
BREMBO Monoblock Radial Mount Calipers
Showa Big Piston Forks
Slipper Clutch

That's a pretty comprehensive bunch of additions and revisions.  The Suzuki GSX-R 1000 costs £10,999.  There's no price yet on the ZSE.

In standard trim the GSX-R has a 182 bhp 1000cc, inline-4 engine and weighs 203kg.  It's a pretty special bike already.  With its exclusivity the ZSE limited edition is going to be something of a collectors item in the future.
