Model Description

built for real-world excitement

From the DNA of a supersport legend comes the pure sport roadster, the GSX-S1000, a motorcycle built for real-world excitement.

Tuned for the street

The GSX-S1000 is powered by a street-tuned version of the four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cc, inline-four engine that became a legend in the 2005 GSX-R1000.

Chassis engineered for real world enjoyment

Suzuki designed a new chassis in a compact, lightweight package that makes the GSX-S1000 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.
