The 2008 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Akrapovic (left), and the Ultimate Edition (right)
Suzuki have launched two new variants of the K8-model GSX-R1000 – the GSX-R1000 Ultimate Edition, and the GSX-R1000 Akrapovic.
The track-focused GSX-R1000 UE has been fitted with a Yoshimura exhaust system, Spiegler brakes, Pirelli Supercorsa Diablo tyres and various carbonfibre bits for reduced weight. The GSX-R1000 Akrapovic comes fitted with an Akrapovic Titanium exhaust and the bike is available only in an all-black colour scheme.
Apparently only available in Europe, the two bikes are priced at about 18,000 euros for the Akrapovic, and 24,000 euros for the UE. Totally awesome, eh?
