    Default Suzuki GSX-R1000 - fastest road racing Superbike on the planet



    Suzukiís GSX-R1000 became the fastest road racing Superbike on the planet earlier this month, as Relentless Suzuki by TAS racer, Bruce Anstey, recorded an astonishing 133.977mph average lap speed in the final race of the Ulster Grand Prix.

    Riding in the prestigious event that uses the closed-off roads around Dundrod in Northern Ireland, Anstey bravely piloted the GSX-R1000 around the 7.4 mile circuit, smashing the previous record in front of a 30,000 strong-crowd.

    Talking about his amazing lap record, London-based Kiwi, Bruce, said,"I knew the Relentless Suzuki by TAS GSX-R1000 was fast, but even I didnít think we could go this quickly. We finished second in the opening race which was a little disappointing, so I got my head down in the final Superbike race and pushed as hard as I could. It was a close battle, but we took the win and proved that the GSX-R1000 is the fastest, which is especially nice during the 25th anniversary year".

    The Relentless Suzuki by TAS GSX-R1000 that Bruce rode to victory, is a race-prepared version of the GSX-R1000 that can be bought from any authorised Suzuki dealer, for a recommended retail of £10,724 on the road. Featuring race-bred technology that includes a powerful 182BHP engine with adjustable engine mapping and an agile chassis with technical advances like Showa Big Piston Forks, the 2010 GSX-R1000 brings race pedigree to the masses.

    So just one race track record makes this bike the "fastest road racing Superbike on the planet"... Really?

    Something is not right... I feel I am being taken for a ride, by this confusing piece of news title.

    BTW Was the BMW S1000R also a part of the race?

    How can fastest average lap speed make it fastest bike
    Fastest bike has to be highest top speed, in unrestricted conditions (straight-line)!!
    This report makes it the quickest bike around the track. Thats it.

    My views on the YZF-R15 V2.0: http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/news/198...tml#post699240

    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.
