Motorbike Mondays: Suzuki GSX-S1000 Preview

April 13, 2015

If you’ve got a case of the Monday blues, don’t worry – we’re here to kick off your week with a bang. It’s time for our latest motorbike review, and today we’re looking at the long overdue Suzuki GSX-S1000. It might be a little late to the naked bike party, but now it’s arrived, it’s safe to say this Suzuki was well worth the wait. In today’s Suzuki GSX-S1000 review, we’ll see how this sporty speedster combines competitive pricing with sexy styling, making it a worthy contender amongst leading street motorbikes. Let’s get stuck in.

Design

With its aggressive appearance and sporty styling, the GSX-S1000 is designed to impress. At the top of the Suzuki’s priority list is comfort – and a sports rider seat ensures this crouching cruiser delivers. As well as providing plenty of grip, the seat allows for easy movement – making tight corners easier to tackle.

Performance & Handling

With a claimed top speed of 150mph, the estimated fuel economy of this Suzuki is 40mpg – and at a lightweight 209kg (before fuel), the Suzuki is an agile, easy to handle ride. The optional ABS system will cost you an extra £500 but is definitely worth investing in as, combined with Brembo monobloc calipers, it makes for more powerful braking.

Suzuki GSX-S1000 Specs

    • Engine: 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC
    • Power: 107.00kW @ 10000rpm
    • Torque: 106.00N.m @ 9500rpm
  • Fuel Economy: 40mpg

Features

In terms of equipment, this Suzuki gets back to basics, offering everything you’d expect from a naked bike – no more, no less. Its lightweight LCD instrument display is not the most stylish but it’s easy to use – and the list of comprehensive readouts includes speedometer, gear position and average fuel consumption. The white backlight ensures optimum nighttime visibility – and indicators controlling turn signals, oil pressure and high beam flank the display.

After such a long build-up, we wouldn’t be surprised if you’re keen to get your hands on this sporty Suzuki – and with the release date set for June of this year, you won’t have to wait much longer. The tempting launch price of £8,999 means this competitively priced motorbike is already in seriously high demand – and we can help you find the funds for this exceptionally nimble naked bike.
