Being a Suzuki Biking Lord and an ardent biker, he is someone who truly understands its worth.”
After having a test drive, Salman said that “Suzuki superbikes have always been about technology that translates into power, performance, ride quality and handling. This exclusive GSX-R1000Z is a jewel in Suzuki’s crown of super bikes. It’s a biker’s privilege to own one. The engineer’s skill translates into the rider’s thrill. I look forward to many long rides on this bike and experiencing the feeling of freedom and joy that biking always brings.”
