Suzuki has introduced their new generation GSX-R range in the best possible manner by winning the 2017 Senior TT, arguably the world’s toughest road race. Michael Dunlop won the Senior TT on Friday afternoon leading all the way around the 60.73 klm course. He won by 13.3 secs from Peter Hickman on the BMW S1000RR.

The Senior TT was restarted after Dunlop’s arch-rival Ian Hutchinson fell heavily in the first race at the 27th Milestone. Sixteen-time winner Hutchinson was helicoptered from the scene with a broken femur.

28 year- old Michael Dunlop also won the Supersport TT a few days before to match the late Mike Hailwood’s tally of 14 wins. He now moves up to fourth place in the all-time solo winners’ list. Dunlop had shown the field how competitive the new Suzuki GSX-R 1000 was when he set a fastest average lap of 131.062mph in qualifying. Apart from a few tweaks to the suspension, Dunlop’s new Suzuki was basically a stocker – a remarkable achievement for a brand new motorcycle. The new Suzuki GSX-R range is due for release in Australia soon. Already savy customers are placing deposits on the GSX-R 1000R, GSX-R 1000 and GSX-R 750 at Procycles Hornsby.
