Suzuki GSX-R Five-O 1000 by Classified Moto

Looking at a Suzuki GSX-R1000 you’d never consider the possibility of converting such a smooth-looking ride into an apocalyptic hellraiser. But then again you’re not Classified Moto. And while we remain impressed with everything these guys put together, their sheer talent in this aesthetic build-out is one for the books.

This particular build, dubbed the Five-O 1000, comes from the stock trim of a 2013 GSX-R1000, which by itself is already a beast of a bike. So this was an easy choice for owner Ron Belfort who calls Oahu his home (hence the “Five-O” reference). According to Classified Moto, Mr. Belfort wanted a bike with an “urban assault look” so they took to the challenge with open arms. It features a one-off exhaust, a bunch of new brackets to replace the old stamped steel ones and an exposed subframe. They kept the stock engine and suspension (because when a bike already features 180 horsepower you don’t mess with the engine) and added a set of Avon AV54 and AV53 tires on the front and back respectively. The seat was also upgraded to custom waxed canvas and leather for enhanced comfort when Belfort tops out at 190 mph through the hills of Hawaii.
