Fancy a new GSX-R1000?

SUZUKI has recently launched the new 2009 GSX-R1000 – the firm's flagship Superbike with breath-taking performance and stunning looks combined – and Westhill is ready to help any prospective buyer to insure their new purchase at the right price.

It'll be February-March 2009 before the GSX-R1000K9 is in the dealerships for sale at an estimated price of around £9000, but already it has got performance enthusiasts excited. Using an all-new 999cc engine Suzuki says it has improved power and torque across the rev range compared to the previous model. That means you can expect around 170bhp at the rear wheel which should equate to 0-60mph in sub 3-secs, a limited top speed of 186mph and class leading acceleration.

The chassis is also new, more compact and designed to give sharper steering and more traction. Combine that with new brakes, suspension and wheels and it is clear that Suzuki wants to reclaim the litre-sports-bike crown it lost to Honda's Fireblade in 2008.

Being at the height of performance means that insurance costs can also be high – but not with Westhill Insurance, where knowledgeable staff are already aware of the bike, its performance and the sorts of things that will help to keep premiums reasonable.

Westhill Insurance's Maurice Gertski said: “The advantage of being an insurer with bike knowledge and enthusiasts manning the telephones and internet is we know what people are talking about when they ask us for insurance.

“We know the difference between a 2008 GSX-R1000 and the new 2009 model due out next year. We will talk with the client and work on his behalf to find the best possible insurance policy at the most competitive price. We work for the client, not the insurance company. I'd urge anyone thinking of buying the new GSX-R1000 or any current Superbike for that matter, to call Westhill and speak with us, we'd like to show you how you can save money on insurance.”
