2015 Suzuki GSX-S1000 Launch 001

Suzuki Assemblers Malaysia continues to expand its model lineup in the country with the launch of the all-new Suzuki GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F. The pair is essentially a street-orientated, stripped down version of the supersport GSX-R1000.

The difference between the GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F is that the former is a naked model while the latter comes with fairings. Both bikes feature a 999 cc liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine derived from the GSX-R1000 K5 with 146 hp at 10,000 rpm and 108 Nm of torque at 9,500 rpm. With a bore and stroke of 73.4 mm x 59 mm and optimised cam, the engine is promised to return ample power through the low and mid-range.

The output is managed by a three-mode traction control system that checks the speed of the wheels, throttle position, crank position sensor and the gear position sensor 250 times a second. The modes differ in terms of sensitivity, with Mode 1 having the least sensitive traction control for spirited riding and Mode 3 with the highest sensitive control most suitable for wet or cold conditions.

The GSX-S series is built around a new, compact mainframe matched with a 43 mm KYB inverted front forks and a coil spring rear suspension with aluminium-alloy swingarm that comes straight from the GSX-R1000.

Braking power comes from 310 mm floating-mount disc with 32 mm four-piston calipers from Brembo. It is also equipped ABS, which monitors the wheel speeds 50 times per wheel rotation.
