Dream Machine: K4 Rizla Suzuki GSX-R1000

Ok, so you can't have those Rizla Suzuki pit babes, but at least you can get yourself a Rizla-replica Suzuki GSX-R1000. Fair enough, we think

Another interesting find on the PB mag forum – a K4 model GSX-R1000 done up in Rizla Suzuki colours. The paintjob has been carried out by Dream Machine, possibly the best outfit in the business for this kind of work. And the seat unit has been signed by Chris Walker, John Reynolds, Carl Crutchlow and Paul Denning...

The bike has been fitted with strong, lightweight Marchesini wheels wearing Bridgestone BT014 rubber, a Zero Gravity screen, Renthal grips, Gilles chain adjusters, Crescent clip-ons, adjustable rearsets, adjustable yokes, and quick-action throttle. Front fork revalving and the rear shock are from WP, as is the steering damper.

Finally, there’s the Yoshimura tri-oval exhaust system, Power commander, Translogic quick-shifter, petal brake discs front and rear, and a sprinkling of carbonfibre bits all over. In outright engine performance and handling terms, we don’t really think this Rizla-rep will outshine the 2008 Gixxer 1000, but what the hell, it still looks hot!

Do take a look (below) at the full list of bits that've been bolted on...

If flashy, racer-rep paintjobs are not for you, you’ll probably like this 2005 Suzuki GSX-R1000, which we also found on PB. The bike is a bolt-on artist’s dream: Brembo racing-spec brakes with monobloc calipers, Marchesini magnesium alloy wheels, Yoshimura titanium racing exhaust, Ohlins suspension (front and rear), Ohlins steering damper, AIM digital dash, Dynojet power commander, quarter-turn throttle kit, Sato rearsets, and Crescent MotoGP front fender. Whew...!
