Suzuki are yet to announce the ordering process or pricing.
Once this news comes to hand, this page will be updated.
Lead by a new stacked LED headlight assembly and bold, angular styling that includes MotoGP inspired winglets, the GSX-S1000’s aggressive naked sportbike stance speaks of power and performance potential.
Upright streetfighter ergonomics, a twin-spar aluminum frame and fully adjustable KYB suspension deliver controlled handling while ABS-equipped** Brembo Monobloc brake calipers with dual, floating brake rotors provide controlled stopping power.
Now supplied with the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) that includes the three-mode Suzuki Drive Mode Selector and the updated, five-mode Advanced Traction Control System* and the popular Easy Start and Low RPM Assist systems.
The 999cc, GSX-R-based engine has more peak power with strong torque in the low- to mid-range that’s smoothly controlled by new, Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle bodies for stimulating sportbike experience.
The latest version of the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) smooths shifting and engine braking, or give your clutch hand a rest with the new Bi-directional Quick Shift system.
Select from Suzuki’s hero Metallic Triton Blue, new Metallic Matte Mechanical Gray, or the ever-popular Glass Sparkle Black paint scheme – each featuring new logos for the sport’s dominant naked sportbike.
The GSX-S1000’s long-stroke GSX-R engine has been refined to produce a broad, smooth torque curve through the full rev-range with increased peak horsepower.
The GSX-S1000 provides predictable and controllable throttle response with abundant top-end power to provide the rider an exciting riding experience.
The cam chain tensioner and tension adjuster are updated to reduce friction and improve durability.
Aluminum pistons, engineered with use of Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis, are cast with optimal rigidity and weight.
Ventilation holes between the cylinders reduce pumping loss within the crankcase so the engine can deliver more power and torque.
Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)–plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.
New electronic throttle bodies are used on the GSX-S1000, so engine response is smooth and controlled, especially when the rider is applying the throttle to accelerate out of a corner.
These new Ride-by-Wire throttle bodies provide precise control for the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), Traction Control (TC), and Bi-directional Quick Shift system (QS).
Long-tip, 10-hole fuel injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization, while the automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) improves cold starting and stabilizes the engine idle.
Retaining the under-chassis design, sharp looks and exciting note of the prior generation’s system, the GSX-S1000’s new stainless steel, 4-2-1 exhaust system is completely redesigned and tuned.
Behind the header pipes, the redesigned mid-chamber contains a second catalytic converter to help ensure emissions compliance, a low center-of-gravity, and good exhaust flow to help the engine deliver a strong low- to mid-range punch with an exciting rush to redline.
The digital ignition fires iridium-type spark plugs that increase spark strength and combustion efficiency, contributing to higher power, more linear throttle response, easier engine start-up, and a more stable idle. These quality components also last longer than conventional spark plugs.
Additional heat is removed from the engine via the use of a lightweight and compact liquid-cooled oil cooler (like those used on certain GSX-R models).
New camshaft profiles decrease lift and valve overlap not only to improve emissions, but balance the engine’s performance and drivability, enhancing rider control.
New valve springs are calibrated to the new camshafts to aid performance and improve durability.
Suzuki’s legendary Twin Swirl Combustion Chamber (TSCC) design is machined into the cylinder head that, with the flat-top pistons, achieves an optimal 12.2:1 compression ratio that helps deliver a broad spread of power throughout the entire rev range.
The engine finish is revised to present an even stronger image of quality while the design of the engine covers (clutch, stator, and drive sprocket) are updated with a new shape and finish.
The air cleaner has a new internal structure that contributes to the GSX-S1000’s increased engine performance while maintaining the exciting intake sound that the GSX-S1000 is renowned for.
The air cleaner’s external shape is changed to accommodate the larger capacity fuel tank.
A refined Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve manages flow from the mid-chamber into the sculpted muffler that has a pleasing appearance that’s not common to under-chassis exhausts while creating an exciting, distinctive sound.
With the catalytic converters located in the mid-chamber, GSX-S1000 riders can fit an EPA or CARB-compliant silencer from suppliers such as Yoshimura R & D, USA.
The restyled radiator shrouds efficiently guide cooling air to the high-capacity curved radiator.
A thermostatically controlled cooling fan helps ensure lower coolant temperatures when riding in slow moving traffic. The design also defects hot air away form the rider at speed.
TRANSMISSION AND FINAL DRIVE
Like a GSX-R1000, the race-proven, six-speed, close-ratio transmission features vertically staggered shafts to reduce overall engine length.
The latest version of the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) clutch is fitted to the GSX-S1000. More than ever before, the SCAS clutch increases plate pressure under acceleration, yet acts as a slipper clutch to smooth the engine response during engine braking and corner entry.
This large-diameter, wet, multi-plate clutch uses a precise cable-activated release, providing the rider with a light pull that also has superb friction-point feel.
The precise shift linkage helps the rider easily and quickly select the best gear for the riding conditions.
A new rotary sensor sends shifter movement data to the ECM, so the Bi-directional Quick Shift system precisely responds to the rider’s actions. This new design eliminates situations where previous designs incorporated into the shift rod could cause a vague feeling at the shift lever or could be easily damaged in a tip-over.
The gearshift cam, shift shaft and clutch release cam were also revised to support the function of the new, bi-directional Quick Shift system.
The strong, 525 drive chain uses O-rings to preserve internal lubrication, so power is transmitted smoothly and quietly.
Suzuki’s proven, twin-spar aluminum frame helps to ensure nimble handling and great road holding ability. The main spars are straight from the steering head to the swingarm pivot, which is ideal for achieving high rigidity and light weight.
Connected to the swingarm is a link-type rear suspension, with a single shock absorber that features spring preload, and is seven-way adjustable with rebound damping force adjustment.
Unique to GSX-S1000 models, the TRP six-spoke, lightweight, cast aluminum wheels look great and contribute to the bike’s nimble handling and sporty performance.
These wheels and new tires work in harmony with revised front and rear suspension settings to help realize the great grip, stability and nimble handling demanded for sporty performance, while also contributing to a comfortable ride.
The front brakes are complemented by a 240mm rear disc brake with a Nissin single-piston caliper to help ensure controlled stops.
The new GSX-S1000 features an upright riding position for greater comfort and control. This reasonable sport riding position is the result of a carefully crafted relationship between the handlebar, footrests, and seat.
A new, matte black tapered cast-aluminum handlebar contributes to the excellent riding ergonomics, with great vibration damping and performance-oriented style.
The new handlebar is 23 mm wider than the prior generation model and is rotated slightly upward to raise the grip height in relation to the rider.
In addition to increased comfort and a more upright posture, these changes make it easier for the rider to steer the front end with less effort.
The sturdy aluminum-alloy swingarm comes straight from the GSX-R1000. It is ruggedly braced and helps to ensure great road holding ability, together with superbike looks.
The 43mm inverted KYB forks have adjustable compression and rebound damping, plus spring preload adjustment with a generous 120 mm of front wheel travel.
Dunlop’s new Roadsport 2 radial tires (120/70ZR17 at the front and a new, wider sized 190/50ZR17 at the rear) are custom-engineered to perform optimally on the GSX-S1000, providing great grip in dry or wet conditions, faster warm-up, and long tread life.
Dual front brakes with fully floating 310mm discs and Brembo Monobloc calipers with four 32mm opposed pistons provide strong and consistent stopping power.
Both the front and rear brakes can be modulated by a new, compact Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) controller to match stopping force to the available traction.
The black finish on the shifter, rear brake, and both hand levers matches the performance nature of the motorcycle.
The front brake lever features a multi-step adjuster that permits quick adjustment of the lever’s distance from the grip.
The GSX-S1000’s new fuel tank increases capacity up to 19 L to reduce the frequency of gas stops while commuting or on long rides. Prior GSX-S1000 fuel tank capacity was 17.0 L
The body work displays a sense of athleticism and muscular strength.
The development of the body work is aimed at creating a strong, athletic sense of a well-built and capable street fighter.
Straight, sharp lines emphasize a modern motorcycle of high quality and eye-catching appeal.
The new lines and attention to detail, like the exposed metal finish of the front fork outer tubes and muffler, convey a look of high quality and premium status.
New model logos and textured surfaces:
- New understated SUZUKI logos on the fuel tank and a fresh font for the model name on the radiator shroud present a mature, sophisticated appearance.
- A new, carbon fiber-like textured pattern is strategically applied to the sides of the frame so the rider’s legs can better grip the chassis. This pattern also adds a joint appearance of quality and high-performance while enhancing the GSX-S1000’s look of quality.
The new front seat is designed for comfortable sport riding that includes a foam shape change to provide great support at the back of the seat while offering excellent freedom of movement for the rider.
The seat is now lower, with a height of 810 mm and contributes to the sporty, yet upright riding position and aids rider confidence at stops.
Positioned on the motorcycle higher so the passenger can see over the rider’s shoulder, the rear seat has a new shape to match the GSX-S1000’s angular styling but retains ample padding and a grab strap.
Both seats are covered in a rugged, weather-resistant cover that provides a good balance between grip and smooth movement.
The styling is meant to convey an aggressive attitude.
The radical design of the new stacked LED headlight assembly and its minimalist cowling adds sharp lines that are inspired by the latest stealth aircraft.
The fuel tank side cowling blends into the radiator shrouds that have angular winglets, reminiscent of the aerodynamic foils on Suzuki’s World Champion MotoGP race bikes.
The bike’s compact nose pairs with the short, compact muffler design and slim design of the tail section to establish a clean, agile look that accentuates the muscular appearance of the engine and fuel tank.
The result is a mass-forward image that emphasizes the new GSX-S1000’s aggressive stance and eagerness to perform.
The new GSX-S1000 rolls out with a trio of new body colour choices (subject to confirmation by Suzuki Australia):
- Metallic Triton Blue (YSF): the main color and brand symbol for Suzuki’s on-road sports identity.
- Metallic Matte Mechanical Gray (QT7): A new theme color inspired by jet fighters, this solid matte gray with a hint of a blue, expresses a cool and sophisticated urban vibe.
- Glass Sparkle Black (YVB): This traditionally popular combination of glossy and flat black expresses fine finish and luxury, with a hint of street savvy.
A new, custom-designed ignition key sporting the GSX-S logo on the hilt aims to instill pride of ownership.
ELECTRICAL & LIGHTING
The oil-cooled, three-phase charging system provides ample power for the GSX-S1000’s maintenance-free battery and ride-enhancing electronics.
The GSX-S1000’s Computer Area Network (CAN) style wire harness functions as an interconnected information network, rather than using a more complex and slower conventional wiring harness.
The CAN-wiring system enables the motorcycle’s various sensors and microcontrollers to communicate instantaneously with each other.
With fewer wires, CAN-wiring lets the GSX-S1000 be lighter and simpler and provides a way for the advanced components – like the electronic throttle bodies and bi-directional quick shifter – to communicate faster with the ECM.
Using a high-visibility LCD display, the GSX-S1000’s brightness-adjustable instrument cluster, packs a wide range of useful information into a compact module positioned at the center of the large-diameter handlebars.
The LCD readouts include:
- Speedometer and tachometer, odometer with twin tripmeters, gear position, fuel gauge, clock, battery voltage and service reminder.
- Specialized information includes real-time fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, riding range, and lap timer functions.
- S.I.R.S. related information includes the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) setting, Quick Shift (ON/OFF) and Traction Control mode.
The GSX-S1000 is equipped with Suzuki innovative multifunction handlebar switches that are laid out to maximize operating ease and efficiency.
- The rider can use the LCD panel information and the mode/set switch on the left handlebar to change Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) settings.
- The right handlebar switch has a poly-function rocker switch that is the engine stop- and start-button that activates the Easy Start System.
Supplied by Koito®, the independent, polygon-shaped, high- and low-beam headlights feature a new Mono-focus LED technology that shines light directly through a convex lens to brightly illuminate the road.
New front LED turn signals in thin, arrow-shaped housings, extend outward from the steering mount and emphasize the extraordinary appearance of the vertically stacked headlights.
With lower electrical draw than conventional lighting, the new LED headlights, position light, turn signals and taillight complement the GSX-S1000’s sharp, angular styling while improving both visibility and durability.
SUZUKI INTELLIGENT RIDE SYSTEM (SIRS) FEATURES
The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) provides the rider a choice of three different engine power output modes. All three modes deliver maximum engine output but provide different throttle response and torque characteristics when accelerating.
These three modes (A, B, and C) provide the rider a quick and easy way to alter the GSX-S1000’s power delivery characteristic to match his or her riding style, or adjust to changing weather, road and other conditions.
- Mode A (Active) is for active, sporty use that delivers the sharpest throttle response as the rider opens the throttle. Mode A’s torque characteristics are finely tuned to deliver exciting acceleration when hitting the throttle hard, such as when participating in track day events or enjoying a sporty run on clean, winding roads in good weather.
- Mode B (Basic) is for general, all-around riding, as it features softer throttle response and a more linear power delivery curve as the rider opens the throttle. Settings are tuned to fit a wide range of riding styles and conditions, and to help make the bike more controllable in everyday riding situations.
- Mode C (Comfort) offers a softer throttle response and more gentle torque characteristics, with power increasing in a directly linear fashion as the throttle is opened. This mode is useful when riding on wet or slippery surfaces, or when the rider desires a relaxing, comfortable ride.
Using the mode and select switches on the left handlebar, the rider can change SDMS modes while riding. The mode settings are clearly displayed on the LCD instrument panel.
The five-mode Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS) continuously monitors front- and rear- wheel speed, engine RPM, throttle position and gear position to adjust engine output to prevent undesired rear wheel spin, helping maintain traction and power delivery to the road.
Compared to the three-mode system on the prior generation GSX-S1000, this updated, five-mode version of STCS features a wider selection of sensitivity to better accommodate a variety of riding conditions, styles, and rider experience. The system can also be turned off when preferred. The higher number the mode, the quicker STCS intervenes to limit rear wheel spin.
The STCS modes are displayed on the LCD instrument panel and can be changed on-the-fly, using the left handlebar switch. When the system is trimming power to prevent wheel spin, the TC icon in the center of the instrument panel will illuminate and flash.
The Bi-directional Quick Shift System (QS) allows the rider to shift up or down quickly and easily, without operating the clutch or throttle.
To ensure smooth upshifts QS automatically interrupts power delivery just long enough to produce smooth, almost uninterrupted acceleration. When decelerating, the system automatically opens the throttle valves just enough to increase rpm and match engine speed to the next-lower gear. The result of this hands-free, automatic blipping function combines seamlessly with engine braking to create a highly satisfying experience when downshifting.
The bi-directional QS works seamlessly in concert with SDMS to bring riders even greater riding enjoyment.
Performance of the GSX-S1000’s new SACS-style assist & slipper clutch ensures even smoother up- and down-shifts when using QS or manual clutch operation.
A new style rotary sensor sends shifter movement data to the ECM, so the Bi-directional Quick Shift system precisely responds to the rider’s actions.
The Suzuki Easy Start System lets the rider start the motorcycle with a simple press of the starter button. There is no need to pull in the clutch lever when the transmission is in neutral, and the starter motor automatically disengages, the instant the engine fires up.
The Low RPM Assist System seamlessly increases engine speed to smooth the power delivery when launching from a standing start or riding at low speeds, which helps ensure better control and operation in stop-and-go traffic. The system also minimizes the possibility of the rider stalling the motorcycle during take-off.
