Stripped to the essentials. Suzuki simplified the Gsxr wherever possibie in an effort to reduce weight-components were combined to minimize brackets, for example.
Also, the prototypes had a shared hydraulic reservoir for the front brake and clutch to save weight. (That idea was not re tained for production.) Butthat wasn't all. Groundbreaking new technologies were applied to the bike, from the special alloy frame to the use of radial tires
