After the GSX-R1000 had been three years on the roads and race tracks, Suzuki put out a new version of the model in late September 2002. Suzuki engineers had been working on the three things that made a fast bike faster; weight, power and handling. The 2003 year's GSX-R1000 was improved in all three counts. It weighed less, had more power/torque and handled better.PP Tuning performance parts for Suzuki GSX-R 1000 (2003–2004), rearsets, adjustable brake and clutch levers, clip-on handlebars, protectors etc. are produced from highly resistant materials. This ensures their longevity.
