The GSX-S1000, a motorcycle built for real-world excitement. Inheriting the genuine engine and main components of the world-beating GSX-R1000, this thrilling machine puts the feel of world-beating performance in your hands.
The GSX-S1000 is powered by a street-tuned version of the four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cc, inline-four engine that became a legend in the 2005 GSX-R1000.
There are several versions of the GSX-S1000, and the GSX-S1000Y is the loudest of them all. Stand out from the crowd with striking bright red wheels, graphics and lower belly pan. This distinctive model combines these red highlights with a fusion of black and white body panels and graphics to create this stunning overall look. Finishing off the looks of the GSX-S1000Y are anodised black front fork stantions and a blacked out silencer and heatshield.
Suzuki designed a new chassis in a compact, lightweight package that makes the GSX-S1000 agile and fun to ride. Every aspect of the chassis reflects a focus on great handling and control in real-world conditions from city streets to twisty mountain roads. The main frame helps to ensure nimble handling and great roadholding.
The GSX-S1000 has the same top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers as the GSX-R1000. The calipers each have four opposed 32mm pistons acting on a 310mm floating-mount disc for strong stopping power.
Newly specified 43mm KYB inverted front forks give a ride that is sporty yet plush. They have fully adjustable damping, rebound, compression and spring preload.
The GSX-S1000 is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including an Advanced Traction Control System², Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.
The GSX-S1000 is designed to look wild, rugged, and aggressive. And to keep the rider comfortable at all times. The bike’s overall shape evokes a crouching beast. LED position lights are shaped to represent its fangs. And a combination of black plastics and painted parts emphasises the bike’s assertive, sporty personality.
The instrument cluster takes the form of a lightweight, brightness-adjustable LCD. Readouts include speedometer, tachometer, odometer, dual tripmeters, gear position, coolant, driving range, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption, traction control, and a clock.
