GSX-R1000S – Sharpening The Old Blade

Fast Forward Evolution

We all know the classic 82 Hans Muth stylized GSX Katana. One if not the most iconic Japanese superbike of all time. The story of this bike starts when SpeedJunkies did a digital rendering based on the brand new in 2016 GSX-R1000 L6 with Katana looks. Tatsuya whos R1 featured here before seen the rendering decided to make something similar with his GSX-R1000 K6. The most difficult part of transforming the superbike was the tank, he married the base of the K6 with the top part of the Katana, after a couple of tries we managed to make it work. The seat took an upwards look due to modification of the second try but it does work on track like that and stays as is. The Bike other than Katana looks spots Brembo and Ohlins Gear front and back, Yoshimura Fuel system , rearsets , billet yokes (not shown here) and Forged wheels. We should see soon some track action pics from Autopolis.
