In this Fifth Gear segment, Vicki pits a Suzuki GSX-R1000 up against the Westfield XTR4. Which one comes out on top? Find out after the jump.
The GSX-R1000 engine was basically a redesigned GSX-R750 engine. The R1000 had a 1 millimeter bigger bore and 13 millimeter longer stroke, newly designed (slightly lighter) pistons with lower crown, and gear-driven counter balancer. All this adds up to a machine that will hit 60mph in under 2.5 seconds, hit 100mph in a little over 5.5 seconds and do a top speed of 190mph.
