An Invitation to own the Streets!
Have the best of both worlds. The DNA of the thoroughbred super sport GSX-R1000, transformed into the incredible GSX-S1000 street series. If the GSX-R1000 owned the racetrack, now you can own the streets with the GSX-S1000 ABS and GSX-S1000F ABS.
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 sport riding more enjoyable and less tiring.
The system checks the front and rear wheel speeds, the throttle position sensor, the crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor 250 times a second. It quickly reduces engine output by effecting control over the ignition timing whenever it detects wheelspin. The system's control over engine output feels so smooth and natural, it does not detract from riding pleasure.
The rider can set the system to any of three modes or turn it off. the modes differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode one is for sport riding with minimal intervention from the system. Mode three gives maximal traction control for riding in poor conditions. Mode two offers a balance that is ideal for typical road conditions.
Note: The traction control system is not a substitute for the rider's therottle control under any conditions. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to exerssive speed when the rider is entering a turn and or braking. Also, it cannot prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
A chassis engineered for real-world enjoyment
Suzuki designed a new chassis in a compact, lightweight package that makes the GSX-S1000F agile and fun to ride. Every aspect of the chassis reflects a focus on great handling and control in real-world conditions from city streets to twisty mountain roads.
The main frame helps to ensure nimble handling and great roadholding. The main tubes are straight from the steering head to the swingarm pivot. Their shape is ideal for achieving high rigidity and low weight. Suzuki used finite element analysis techniques to make the frame even lighter than that of the current GSX-R1000.
The sturdy aluminum-alloy swingarm comes straight from the current GSX-R1000. It is ruggedly braced and helps to ensure great roadholding together with superbike looks.
Suzuki optimized the riding position for greater comforn and slimmed down the knee-grip area for relaxing ergonomics. The slim bodywork combines with the low seat (815mm from the ground) to help the rider put his feet down easily.
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.
The cast-aluminum wheels have a brand-new lightweight, six-spoke design that gives a combination of nimble handling and sporty looks. Dunlop radial tyres (120/70ZR17 at front; 190/50ZR17 at the rear), provide great grip for sport riding.
high-performance braking technologies
Tje GSX-S1000 has the same top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers as the 2014 GSX-R1000.
The calipers each have four opposed 32mm pistons acting on a 310mm floating-mount disc for strong stoping power.
An antilock braking system (ABS) helps the rider stay in directional control even during hard braking. It monitors the 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.
