TG-RUN's GSX-R1000R

suzuki_01.jpg

The SUZUKI GSX-R1000R has an established reputation as a supersport machine that not only has potential on the race track, but is also enjoyable on the streets. The bike introduced here uses the M2 (2022 model) as a base and was modified by Technical Garage RUN (TG-RUN). Of course, it was customized as a "Version Up Complete", which is what TG-RUN calls their complete customs, and the photo shoot was done right after it had finished being assembled. We asked Mr. Sugimoto of TG-RUN if there were any similarities or differences with other GSX-R1000Rs that they have customized.

"The similarities are the light weight and high quality. A customized machine must work as a total package with a solid center, and each part must be easy to operate and easy for the rider to control. These features make the bike safer and more secure to ride. This is true whether the base is a GSX-R, a Hayabusa, a new KATANA, an oil-cooled model, or an air-cooled model. The difference, on the other hand, is that each bike is tailored to the owner's needs, riding style, and preferences. Some owner's mainly use their bike on the street, some mainly for touring, others may ride on both the street and the track, and some might just enjoy racing. By applying settings suited to the needs of each rider, even with the same parts and package, the characteristics of each bike will change. We make each machine tailor-made by first getting to know the owner and giving top priority to their wishes. We adjust the way the bike moves, based on things like the suspension, to match the owner themselves. This machine was customized with the same idea in mind, and once we have the owner test it out on the track and make any last minute adjustments, it will be complete." Mr. Sugimoto himself rides all year round, from the streets to the track, honing his machine building skills and customization know-how that are recognized by professional riders. It must be because of this broad outlook on the customization process that each and every owner's wishes are so highly reflected in TG-RUN's complete customs.
