SUZUKI UNVEILS THE NEW GSX S1000 2021
The 999 cc inline 4 cylinder engine, derived from that of the GSX R K5, becomes Euro 5 thanks also to the double catalytic converter. The spec sheet now reads 152 hp at 11,000 rpm and 106 Newton meters at 9,250 rpm: compared to the previous model it delivers 2 hp more, but at 1,000 rpm higher, while the torque drops by 2 Newton meters but reaches its peak maximum 250 rpm before.
Upgrades to the engine have made the delivery curve of both power and torque much more homogeneous. And the updates mainly concern a new valve crossing, a reworking of the electronic control of the throttle body and a revised design of the air filter.
The Suzuki Clutch Assistant System makes its debut on the new GSX S 1000: an electro actuated system that implements the functions of the slipper clutch, thus allowing the use of softer springs in favor of a softer command. But this is just the tip of the iceberg called “electronics”, which is managed through the new LCD screen.
Three riding modes are introduced on Suzuki’s maxi naked, which change the throttle response: from the sportiest (A) to the softer in case of rain (C). The traction control levels become five, with the possibility of being deactivated.There is no inertial platform, but the control unit takes into account the speed of the two wheels, the speed of the pinion, the opening of the ride by wire accelerator and the gear engaged. The bi directional quickshifter completes the electronic package, alongside the existing Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.The suspensions are Kayaba, the fork with 43 mm stanchions is fully adjustable while the shock absorber is adjustable in preload and extension. The brakes are Brembo, with radial mount monobloc calipers that bite 310 mm discs, and floating caliper at the rear. The curb weight is 214 kg: increased mainly due to the increased fuel tank of two liters. In contact with the ground we find the 17 inches Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2, 120 on 70 section in front and 190 on 50 behind.The new GSX S 1000 is available in three colors: black, gray and the sportier blue and silver gray with yellow details. The price is 13,190 euros and will arrive in dealerships in early June.
