All-new 2021 Suzuki GSX-S1000 launched, enjoys heavy revisions

KUALA LUMPUR: As promised, Suzuki launched the 2021 GSX-S1000, making the naked motorcycle segment more appealing than ever.

2021 Suzuki GSX-S1000 details

In its new version, the GSX-S1000 looks stunning and is blessed with many revisions both inside and outside. Starting with the latter, the bike features a new set of LED headlights that are compact than the older halogen units but gives out excellent lighting. The low-beam and high-beam are stacked, with the former positioned above the latter. Additional illuminating elements are located above the SRAD intakes, one on each side of the headlight. Also, part of the kit is LED taillights, brake light, and license plate light (the light is smaller and lighter than a conventional bulb, but produces more illumination). The LED turn indicators come as standard fitment and so is the full LCD instrument cluster which is brighter and easier to read. It incorporates S-DMS mode, Motion Track TCS level indicators, fuel gauge, and readouts for average fuel consumption, ambient temperature, and service reminder.

Helping kick things a notch up in the styling department is the bike’s aggressive body panels and MotoGP-like aero fairings.

2021 Suzuki GSX-S1000 power

What powers the 2021 Suzuki GSX-S1000?

The new GSX-S1000 sources its power from a 999cc, 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC mill which is Euro5 compliant. The engine makes a maximum power of 105 hp at 11,000 rpm, which is 2 hp more than the previous-gen output. The enhanced power is the result of several revisions that come in the form of a new intake, new exhaust camshafts, a revised set of clutch and throttle bodies, and lastly a restyled airbox with less intake resistance. The power is sent to the ground via a 6-speed constant mesh transmission. As for the torque, Suzuki says there’s an overall improvement along with more linear power delivery.
