Suzuki marked its entry into the lucrative litre-class naked motorcycle segment in India with the launch of the Suzuki GSX-S 1000, in May 2015. The latest addition to the iconic GSX family of motorcycles, the GSX-S 1000 has been developed as a practical everyday run around streetbike, which feels equally at home on a race track.
Like a typical streetfighter motorcycle, the GSX-S 1000 sports minimal bodywork which gives it a sleek and aggressive look. The muscular fuel tank is flanked on both sides by edgy air scoops, which seem to heavily be influenced by the Japanese manufacturer’s traditional design philosophy. The rear of the GSX-S 1000 features a clean and minimalist design while the 4 into 2 into 1 exhaust system gets a midship layout to improve the weight distribution and riding dynamics of the motorcycle.
The GSX-S 1000 is powered by a 999cc four-cylinder engine, which has been carried over from the previous generation GSX-R 1000. This engine has been tuned to smoothen out the throttle response and offer a more controlled acceleration to improve the GSX-S 1000’s everyday usability and practicality. The engine is rated at 145bhp of power and comes mated to a six-speed close-ratio transmission.
The GSX-S 1000 rides on fully adjustable 43mm KYB inverted front forks and a Showa rear monoshock. Braking hardware includes 310mm dual discs in the front and a single disc at the rear. The GSX-S 1000 comes with a three-mode traction control system, which can be adjusted according to the rider’s preference.
The Suzuki GSX-S 1000 is available in two paint schemes – candy daring red /glass sparkle black and Suzuki’s trademark metallic triton blue. It competes with other litre-class streetfighters like the Kawasaki Z1000, Honda CB1000R, Yamaha FZ1 and the Triumph Speed Triple.
