For 2005, Suzuki set out to make its sports flagship smaller, lighter and more powerful than the previous K4 version. By shaving a millimetre here and a gram there overall Weight: has been reduced two kilograms to a svelte 166kg.

The footpegs are lower and further forwards but lean angle isn’t compromised because they’ve been moved inwards 17mm

The handlebars are slightly narrower, higher and further back, the back of the fuel tank is narrower (although it still holds 18 litres) and the seat height has been lowered by a significant 20mm to 810mm.

The effect is to reduce seat-to-handlebar reach by 40mm without cramping the rider’s legs, making the bike feel considerably more compact than its predecessor.
The liquid-cooled, four-cylinder Engine: has gained 11cc (to 999cc) and turns over an extra 1000 times a minute – thanks to titanium valves – to deliver a claimed 133kW at 11000rpm with 118Nm available at 9000 revs.

It drives through a back torque-limiting “slipper” clutch and a six-speed gearbox. I can’t tell you much about the clutch because I used it exactly once – pulling out of the pits lane – but the gearbox is well up to Suzuki’s usual slick standards
