Suzuki GSX-S1000 Naked Street Racer Launched

This Suzuki street bike gains more power, more tech and a more aggressive look.

Suzuki has recently revealed its all-new GSX-S1000 for 2021. A radical redesign over its predecessor, this new litre-class naked street bike brings with it updated mechanicals, sharper styling and a heap of new tech. 

Starting first with the exterior aesthetic of this new Suzuki first, the most notable change in this department will be the revisions made to the front of this new naked bike. That is because gone is the singular large headlight look of its predecessor, and in its place instead now is a slimmer, more angular front fascia with a double-stacked mono-focus hexagonal LED headlight cluster. 

New to the GSX-S1000 too this time round is the addition of S.I.R.S. (Suzuki Intelligent Ride System), which includes features such as the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) with 3 different modes, an updated 5-mode Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS), not to mention the Bi-directional Quick Shift System, clutch assist and low-rpm assist. All of this new tech aims to ‘enable riders to optimise performance characteristics to best suit their level of confidence and experience as well as varying road surfaces’, and all of which can be customised from the redesigned LCD dashboard nicked straight from the GSX-R1000

The 999 cc liquid-cooled inline-four of its predecessor has been radically revised in order to comply with stricter Euro 5 emissions regulations. Featuring a new intake and exhaust camshaft with revised cam profiles, new valve springs, clutch, airbox, and an additional catalytic converter, it nevertheless now actually manages to send just a little bit more power too to the rear wheels through a six-speed transmission over its outgoing iteration at 152 PS (+5 PS) @ 11,000 rpm and 106 Nm @ 9,250 rpm. 

To be available in Metallic Triton Blue, Glass Matte Mechanical Gray, and Glass Sparkle Black, initial deliveries of this all-new GSX-S1000 will begin in Europe come June 2021 at a retail price beginning from £10,999 (RM63,000) in the UK. No word yet on when it will arrive in Malaysia though, but Suzuki has stated that this new naked bike will be sold worldwide so it should only be a matter of time.
