Suzuki press indicates that the new Anti-Lock Brake system is based on existing Suzuki technology, but specially built for the GSX-R1000. The front twin disc, Brembo calipers set-up remain braking kit at the front while a Nissin caliper bites the disc at the back. The new unit adds four additional pounds to the machine, resulting in a claimed 452-pound curb weight.
The ABS edition will only be available in Suzuki’s racing coloway, which the company calls Metallic Triton Blue. For the non-ABS 2015 GSX-R1000, riders can choose from Metallic Triton Blue or Pearl Mira Red/Metallic Matte Black.
MSRP for the 2015 GSX-R1000 ABS is $14,399 while the non-ABS version will cost $13,899.
