K7 model Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000

We don't know how much money they've spent on it, but this 2007 model Yoshimura Suzuki
GSX-R1000 looks absolutely magnificient...!

Here’s yet another awesome looking GSX-R1000, from the PB mag forum. Seems the Brits are making some of the best Japanese repli-racers in the world! Built by one Mark Hanna, this 2007 Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 looks like it’s had a huge amount of money spent on it – and the end result seems well worth the effort.

The bike has had a full engine rebuild, with ST-R Type-R factory cams, bigger injectors, cylinder head porting and head skimming, Rizla Suzuki factory slipper clutch, full factory Yoshimura Titanium Carbon exhaust, specially fabricated aluminium alloy fuel tank, lots of carbonfibre bits, and very high-spec Brembo brakes.

The Yosh GSX-R rides on 17-inch, black-painted Marchesini wheels shod with Dunlop Sportmax Qualifier RR tyres. The front forks are Ohlins FG8 units, and there’s a TT36 Ohlins monoshock at the back. The bike is also due to get an Ohlins steering damper. The race-replica paintjob has been executed by Dream Machine. Absolutely fantastic…

Yes indeed, this Yoshi-Gixxer is one of the hottest repli-racers ever...

This is 18-year-old Brandy Valdez. She may not have a Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000, but she sure as hell can ride. Way to go, lady!

Stunters have impressive control, but I haven't seen any new moves lately.

With boring roads like the one in the video, i guess riders have to entertain themselves somehow with all of the high strung power in the in-line 4s
