GSX-S1000A

Tuned for the streets

The 2018 GSX-S1000A. Powered by a 999cc inline four-cylinder powerplant that’s based on the legendary long-stroke GSX-R1000 engine, which makes for ideal street-riding power and torque curve. Focused on making big power through the low and mid-range, this engine uses a valve-train that’s optimised to deliver street-dominating power.

Equipped with a powerful engine, Suzuki’s Advanced Traction Control System, a balanced KYB suspension, plus ABS, the GSX-S1000S is a street bike packed with some serious performance and rugged and aggressive styling.

Features

  • Newly equipped back torque-limiting clutch
  • Ventilation holes between the pistons on the upper crankcase to reduce pumping loss and increasing power output.
  • Footrest, shift change pedal, rear brake pedal and brake and clutch lever colours are now black.
  • Four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cc inline-four engine, street-tuned version of the legendary 2005-2008 GSX-R1000 engine, is designed to provide smooth throttle response, immediate, controlled acceleration.
  • Traction control to let the rider to control the throttle with more confidence in various riding conditions. You can select 3 different traction control modes 1, 2, 3 and off, depending on conditions or rider preference.
  • Suzuki Easy start system needs just one-push the starter switch just like the recent automobile’s engine start system without pulling the clutch lever if the gear is in neutral. The 32-bit ECM recognises the signals and keeps starter motor working for a certain time.
  • Full LCD Instrument cluster readouts include speedometer, tachometer, odometer, dual tripmeters, gear position, coolant temperatures, driving range, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption, traction control, and a clock.
  • The pistons were engineered with use of FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis to achieve optimal rigidity and weight. 3% lighter than the 2007 GSX-R engine without compromising durability.
  • Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.
  • Fuel injection system employs Suzuki’s original, SDTV (Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve) 44mm throttle body (same size as GSX-R1000K7), the secondary throttle valves are controlled by servo motor for smooth power delivery and optimum combustion efficiency.
  • The exhaust system is 4-into-2 into-1 system; it has equaliser pipes between 1 and 4, 2 and 3 header pipes. This design contributes to stronger low-to-mid range output by fine-tuning the exhaust pressure waves. The Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system controls exhaust pressure waves in order to improve engine combustion at low rpm.
  • Main frame is aimed to provide nimble handling and great road holding performance.
  • 43mm KYB Inverted front fork which is fully adjustable damping, rebound, compression and spring pre-load.
  • Brembo mono-block front brake calipers are mated with 310mm floating-mount dual discs providing strong braking performance.
  • ABS monitors wheel speed 50 times per wheel rotation and matches stopping power to available traction.
  • Renthal Fatbar handlebar.
  • Sporty yet upright riding position with windscreen to reduce rider fatigue.
  • The distinctively shaped headlight is a multi-reflector type with twin 12V/55W bulbs. LED position lights are located under the headlight, impresses its distinctive look.
  • The cam profiles are designed to optimise the valve timing to tune the GSX-R1000 engine – which is designed keeping in mind racetrack use – to obtain the GSX-S1000 power character that’s more suited to the streets and winding roads.
