2021 GSXR 100th Anniversary Edition Sportbikes
Suzuki GSX-R models lead the way in 100th anniversary year
Suzuki celebrates its 100th anniversary as a company in 2020. Founded originally as a loom manufacturer in Hamamatsu, Japan, Suzuki has evolved into a global leader of automotive, marine, motorcycle, and ATV products. The performance-driven DNA of Suzuki is alive and well in all of its first release 2021 powersports models, including race-ready Suzuki GSX-R sportbikes.
In 1985, Suzuki revolutionized the sportbike category with the introduction of the original GSX-R750. This year also marks Suzuki’s 60th year in racing, a milestone celebrated with the MotoGP team’s retro-inspired livery. The MotoGP GSX-RR’s traditional blue and slate silver paint scheme pay homage to Suzuki’s early Grand Prix machines of the 1960s.
The family of GSX-R ultra-high performance motorcycles including the GSX-R600, GSX-R750, and GSX-R1000R continues this tradition of Suzuki excellence and all three models will sport the striking limited edition 100th Anniversary Edition color scheme featuring the iconic blue and slate silver from that historic Suzuki era. Available in limited numbers, these eye-catching GSX-R models may be nostalgic for some, yet love at first sight for others.
2021 GSX-R1000R 100th Anniversary Edition
Suzuki started with a goal to reclaim the GSX-R1000’s The King of Sportbikes crown.
From there, the fundamental capabilities that make a great sportbike were distilled down to three words: run, stop, and turn – making the new GSX-R1000R run better, turn better, and stop better than any other sportbike.
The GSX-R’s compact and lightweight engine provides class-leading power that is delivered smoothly and controllably across a broad rpm range. This versatile engine is equally suited for driving hard out of a racetrack corner or accelerating effortlessly onto a public highway.
This incredible engine contributes to the GSX-R1000R’s compact chassis that delivers nimble handling with excellent front-end feel and braking, as useful for trail-braking on the racetrack as for rolling into tight corners on a country road. Advanced electronic rider aids that aren’t too complicated to use enhance the experience rather than control it. The bodywork’s aerodynamics reduce drag at top speed on the racetrack and improve rider comfort on brisk street rides.
In short, Suzuki developed a new generation GSX-R1000 that has an unmatched combination of reliability, durability, usability, and overall performance with excellent racing potential in a package that works as well for street riders as it does for track-day riders and amateur or professional racers.
The Suzuki Integrated Design approach, with a dedicated team of talented engine, chassis, electronic, and aerodynamic engineers working together, produced an outstanding sportbike. The new GSX-R1000R proves it was built to Own the Racetrack, as it captured the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship in its debut year, once again asserting its claim as The King of Sportbikes.
2021 GSX-R750 100th Anniversary Edition
During a century of innovation, Suzuki has created motorcycles that have positively transformed the riding experience.

On the road or on the track, the GSX-R750 delivers a breathtaking combination of outstanding engine performance, crisp handling, compact size, and light weight. Its secret is an unequaled pairing of 750cc performance with the lightweight, compact chassis of a 600cc Supersport, complemented by technologically advanced suspension front and rear. Try a GSX-R750 and you’ll quickly realize this motorcycle defines performance riding from the center of the sportbike class.
2021 GSX-R600 100th Anniversary Edition
During a century of innovation, Suzuki has created motorcycles that have positively transformed the riding experience. The 2021 GSX-R600 is a good example of that innovation as it is worthy of Suzuki’s race-winning heritage. Whether you’re carving through your favorite canyon or dominating the racetrack, it offers unparalleled performance. A compact, powerful, four-cylinder engine demonstrates the advanced race-proven technology of the GSX-R line when you hit the throttle and push it to redline, while supremely refined suspension systems front and rear help provide precise, responsive handling. Wrapped in aerodynamic and lightweight bodywork that’s lifted from the racetrack, the GSX-R600 can not only win races, it can win envy.
