2005 Suzuki year code: K5

The 2005-year's GSX-R1000 K5 has redesigned engine and chassis. It has 2 kg (4.4 lbs.) lower mass than the K4 and the engine has 11cc larger piston displacement, now producing 170 hp. It has a totally new frame reducing the total length of the bike by 4 cm (1.6 in.) but reducing its wheelbase only marginally (0.5 mm/ 0.02 in.). New brakes (radial mounted calipers and 310 mm discs at the front). The new catalytic eye-catching titanium silencer is said to be designed to reduce turbulence to minimum.

Suzuki GSX-R1000 K5 was available in black/grey, blue/white or yellow/black colour schemes. There was also a Limited Edition all-black Suzuki GSX-R1000.

2007 Suzuki year code: K7

.
Suzuki revealed a significantly updated GSX-R1000 for 2007 at the Paris Motor Show. The new bike gained 14 pounds over the 2006 model which is most likely due to its new exhaust system and new emissions regulations. To counter this significant weight increase, Suzuki claims improved aerodynamics. Although not a completely new model, the engine and chassis have been updated. It also features three different engine mapping configurations, selectable via a three-position handlebar switch; standard, sport, and 'wet' (which would likely soften power significantly, and would also be helpful on cold tires).
