The 2021 Suzuki GSX-R1000R will be available in 3 colour choices. There will be a 100th-anniversary colour option that was introduced earlier this year. It will be carried forward as it is. The second one will be the Triton Blue Metallic with ‘Suzuki Ecstar’ decals on the front fairing accompanied by fluorescent yellow graphics. Similar shade pinstripes have been used on the black alloy wheels.
The final colour option of the 2021 Suzuki GSX-R1000R will be the Matte Black Metallic. It imparts a very bold look to the litre-class sportbike. It has the ‘Suzuki’ decals on the front fairing, however, no ‘Ecstar’ logo has been used. The red graphics look very subtle and bring a contrast to the overall visual appeal. Suzuki has also added red pinstripes on the alloy wheels.
