Michael Dunlop raced his Bennetts Suzuki GSX‑R1000 to victory in the Isle of Man’s Senior TT, taking the win in the blue riband race with a best lap of 132.903mph. The fantastic finish from Dunlop saw him topping the table with over a 13 second lead.
The GSX-R1000, which is now available at Saltire Motorcycles, comes fitted with some of the most advanced rider technology available and an incredible 202PS MotoGP inspired engine. Experience it for yourself by booking a test ride today.
The new GSX-R1000 features a host of MotoGP derived technology, including a clever variable valve timing system that gives the new sports bike class-leading power and 117.6nm of torque. It gets a 10‑stage traction control system governed by an inertial measurement unit that also controls rear wheel lift under braking.
Here’s what Michael Dunlop and Steve Hicken had to say about this phenomenal victory:
"The bike never missed a beat. Steve and all the team put so much effort in and people won't understand how far we've come. We've made the impossible possible. This potential's been coming. If I'd had this bike at the North West 200 I think that would have been a different story, too. But we've won the Senior TT, what more can we say?"
- Michael Dunlop
"That's why we came here. We couldn't have any other aim than winning. As we've said all week, it's taken a lot of hard work to get here as the only team in the paddock with a brand new bike, and we've seen others struggle. We have to also say a big congratulations and thank you to Michael, as without him and his input, feedback, and speed around here, this wouldn't have been possible."
- Steve Hicken, team manager
