General background


Chassis Features


  • High-tensile double cradle steel frame is built to comfortably handle all the power and torque while delivering agile handling and a plush smooth ride
  • Spiral spoke cast aluminum alloy wheels measure a 3.50 x 18 inch up front and a massive 8.50 x 18 inch rear tire wearing a huge 240mm rear Dunlop radial tire
  • Race proven front brake system includes radial mounted four piston front calipers and 310mm front brake rotors. Rear brake system includes a dual piston caliper and 275mm rear disc
  • A sleek wide fuel tank with 5.1 gallon fuel capacity that flows into integrated side covers, a comfortable low seat and stylish radiator cowl.
  • A handlebar mounted digital tachometer and LED indicator lights flow nicely with the tank mounted analog speedometer and LCD odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel gauge and clock
  • Inverted cartridge forks with 46mm stanchion tubes proved an aggressive front end look with 5.12 inches of wheel travel
  • A cast aluminum alloy swingarm works with a progressive shock linkage and a preload adjustable single rear shock delivering 4.66 inches of wheel travel working through a shaft drive system

Engine Features


  • 1783cc, 4-valve DOHC, 54 degree, liquid-cooled, fuel injected V-twin engine designed for strong throttle response and quick acceleration
  • Massive 112mm bore and 90.5mm stroke utilizing huge 112mm forged aluminum alloy pistons with short skirts, and cut away sides riding on chrome moly steel connecting rods
  • Unique new two-stage cam drive system creates a compact cylinder head design and reduces overall engine height and creates a lower center of gravity
  • Each bore is lined with Suzuki's race proven SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) for optimum heat transfer, tighter piston-to-cylinder clearances and reduced weight
  • A compact dry sump lubrication system SASS (Suzuki Advanced Sump System) provides reduced engine height, a lower crankshaft position and lower center of gravity
  • Five speed transmission features carefully selected gear ratios for comfortable cruising in a variety of riding situations
  • Three piece airbox uses dual intakes with 9.5 liters of internal volume working through a pleated fabric air cleaner element
  • The 2-into1-into2 stainless steel chromed exhaust system features Suzuki's digitally controlled SET (Suzuki Exhaust Tuning) system for optimum engine performance and powerful v-twin sound
  • Electronic fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve system (SDTV) with 56mm throttle bodies - maintains optimum air velocity for smooth low-to-mid range throttle response
  • Idle Speed Control (ISC) system improves cold starting and stabilizes engine idle speed in various conditions
  • Dual spark plug per cylinder ignition system is controlled by the powerful 32 bit ECM for improved combustion efficiency and reduced exhaust emissions

Key Features

  • The M109R features a muscular, innovative and stylish new look of high performance with long sleek flowing lines and a powerful V-twin engine
  • A streamlined headlight cover carrying a unique trapezoidal shaped multi-reflector H4 halogen headlight and a maintenance free LED tail light built into the tailsection
  • Aggressive new special edition M109R with a sporty racing stripe, checkerboard background gauge package, clear taillight lens with red LEDs and a stylish textured seat. This is called the LE, but is not limited or numbered in any way.
  • New cylinder head cover, secondary cover and drive unit cover now feature chromed metal construction for a high quality finish
  • Super weak running gear means that the transmission will grenade after a few thousand miles, definitely the weak spot of the bike.
