The 2016 Suzuki GSX-S1000 ABS and Suzuki GSX-S1000F ABS are derived from the legendary, championship-winning Suzuki GSX-R1000 and are also closely related to the Suzuki GSX-RR, Suzuki’s new MotoGP race machine. The new Suzuki GSX-S lineup carries the spirit of the Suzuki GSX-R to the street, with shared technology and components packaged into a chassis designed specifically for street riding comfort.

However, the Suzuki GSX-S1000 and Suzuki GSX-S1000F aren’t just stripped down versions of the supersport Suzuki GSX-R1000, they have been specifically redeveloped for the street. The difference between the Suzuki GSX-S1000 and the Suzuki GSX-S1000F is that the former is a naked model while the latter is faired.

The Suzuki GSX-S series is powered by a street-tuned version of the four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cc, inline-four engine that became a legend in the Suzuki GSX-R1000. The newly honed engine delivers smooth throttle response and immediate, controlled acceleration, so you experience adrenaline rushing performance. Focused on making big power through the low and mid-range, this engine also uses cams optimized to deliver street-dominating power.

Core Features

Three mode traction control system:
Suzuki’s advanced traction control system lets the rider control the throttle with more confidence in diverse conditions, so it makes sports riding more enjoyable and less tiring. The system checks the front and rear wheel speeds, throttle position sensor, crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor 250 times a second. Traction control has 3 modes. Mode 1 is lowest sensitivity level most suitable for skilled riders or in conditions that have good road surface grip (sport riding on good, smooth roads). Mode 2 is next sensitivity level suitable for most riders and road conditions (most riding conditions, urban riding). Mode 3 is highest sensitivity level suitable for road conditions where the grip may be limited (wet or cold surfaces). The rider can set the system to any of three modes or turn it off.

Antilock braking system (ABS):

The ABS system helps the rider stay in control. It monitors wheel speeds 50 times per wheel rotation and matches stopping power to the available traction. The ABS control unit has a compact, lightweight design that helps make the bike nimble.

43mm KYB inverted front forks:
Newly specified 43mm KYB inverted front forks give a ride that is sporty yet plush. They have fully adjustable damping, rebound, compression and spring preload.

High performance braking:
The Suzuki GSX-S series has the same top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers as the current Suzuki GSX-R1000. The calipers each have four opposed 32mm pistons acting on a 310mm floating-mount disc for strong stopping power.

Naked aggression in an all-new form:
The Suzuki GSX-S series is designed to look wild, rugged, and aggressive. The bike’s overall shape evokes images of a crouching beast, with LED position lights shaped to represent its fangs. And a combination of black and body coloured parts emphasize the bike’s assertive, sporty attitude.

A comprehensive instrument cluster:
A lightweight, brightness adjustable LCD readouts including: speedometer, tachometer, odometer, dual trip meters, gear position, coolant and ambient temperatures, riding range, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption, traction control, and a clock. The display is flanked by LED indicators for the turn signals, high beam, malfunction, ABS, traction control, coolant temperature and oil pressure.

The Suzuki GSX-S series comes with a choice of red, blue & gray colours. Basic Sales Price is an attractive RM68,400 for the Suzuki GSX-S1000 ABS and RM74,400 for the Suzuki GSX-S1000F ABS (both prices excluding GST).
