As much as a GSX-R1000 owns the racetrack, the GSX-S1000 owns the street. Developed using the attributes of the championship-winning, long-stroke GSX-R1000 engine, this naked sportbike carries Suzuki’s performance spirit to every ride. The GSX-R connection does not stop there, as the GSX-S1000 shares other chassis technology and components so this bike can carve up the corners while providing all-day riding comfort.
It’s more than just an attitude, a spirit, or a lineage though; it’s about performance-packed hard parts evolving from one generation to the next. The GSX-S1000’s 999cc, inline-four-cylinder powerplant is based on the legendary K5 GSX-R1000 engine. That generation engine is the ideal choice to build a liter-class, naked sportbike around, as it makes strong peak power with a robust torque curve that delivers street-dominating power.
The GSX-S1000’s special design clutch and throttle mechanism smooths shifting, engine braking, and power delivery allowing the rider to effortlessly conquer any type of road. There are electronic rider aids lifted from Suzuki’s supersport bikes, such as the Suzuki Advanced Traction Control System*, plus the Suzuki Easy Start, and Low RPM Assist systems.
