Suzuki bares all about new naked GSX-S1000

Suzuki has revealed the new GSX-S1000 which should be available from the end of June.

The 2021 naked sports bike, priced from £10,999, features:

  • A completely fresh look, with sharp, aggressive new bodywork and futuristic LED lighting design
  • An updated, Euro 5-compliant 152PS four-cylinder engine with a broader spread of torque and power in the low and mid range
  • New electronics, including a quick-shifter and auto-blipper for the six-speed gearbox, selectable engine maps and five-mode traction control which can also be switched off
  • A larger 19-litre fuel tank and a new seat and wider handlebars, set closer to the rider, to improve comfort

Dave Willis, one of our directors, said: “We lost the old GSX-S1000 with the demise of Euro 4 emissions standards so it’s great to have it back because it’s a very popular bike with fans of naked sports bikes.”

The most striking visual change is the new, vertically-stacked LED headlight. The tail light and indicators are also LED.

As part of the power hike, a new exhaust retains the soundtrack the outgoing model was known for, while helping boost power and meeting Euro 5 emissions requirements with an additional catalytic converter.

New electronic throttle bodies control engine response and reduce snatch when first opening. A new camshaft and revised cam profiles for Euro 5 emissions also make the engine pick-up smoother.

The updated suite of electronics, courtesy of Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS), includes a new ride-by-wire throttle for finer control.

The new Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) system has three engine maps. All deliver the same peak power but vary the sharpness and response.

The GSX-S1000 is finished in Suzuki’s traditional metallic triton blue, a new mechanical matt grey and a stealthy gloss black.
