Limited Edition Suzuki GSX-R1000 Phantom

The Suzuki GSX-R1000 Phanton. The best superbike in the world?
The Brits are a lucky bunch indeed. As if a stock GSX-R1000 is not enough, Suzuki GB PLC have announced the launch of a new limited edition model – the GSX-R1000 Phantom – only 200 units of which will be made available. The Phantom features a silver/gray colour scheme (which was not available in Europe earlier), with a Yoshimura Tri-oval exhaust system. The Phantom will retail at £8,799 which is the same as a standard GSX-R1000, so it really is a brilliant deal! But of course, the 2007 GSX-R1000 K7 should be even better, so you may want to wait for that.

Update (22nd September, '06):
The latest news is that the 2007 GSX-R1000 gets traction control, where the rider can choose between three settings - normal, wet and sports. The Hayabusa remains the same, with only new colours and engine tweaks that make it Euro III emissions norms compliant.

Right now, the hottest superbike in the world...!
