PROJECT SUPERSTOCK GIXER – PART I

With a credit card bill the size of a goods train, Carl’s just about ready to start transforming his 2017 Gixer from a road bike into a Superstock racer.

MASTERCLASS

Just the ticket.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the very newest arrival in the Fast Bikes project pages – a brand spanking new 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000R. If you’re wondering why I opted to buy such a bike, then you’re probably reading the wrong mag, but hey, I’ll still tell you anyway. Being 22 years of age I’m getting a little old in the racing scene, and after three and a half years of racing Ducati’s Panigale 899 it didn’t seem right to step back onto a 600. Besides, a thou’ stocker seemed like the most cost effective class possible for me, as it meant there was no real tuning involved or regular refreshers (as is the case in Supersport 600). For that reason I chose to jump into the litre bike world, and after eagerly awaiting the first reviews of the revamped Suzuki I just couldn’t help myself. Couple this with its performance globally (not to mention through British Superstock with Richard Cooper almost bagging the championship in year one) and there really was no question about it; I had to have one.

A horrific way of spending money!
