Products

Born on the racetrack and raised on the street, the 2016 GSX-S1000F is derived from the legendary, championship-winning GSX-R1000. The new GSX-S lineup carries the spirit of the Suzuki GSX-R to the street, with shared technology and performance packaged into a chassis designed specifically for street riding comfort.

35 years after the birth of the original GSX model, the GSX-S series takes the GSX line in an aggressive new direction and is set to become the next member in the family of iconic models from Suzuki.  

To successfully launch Suzukis latest street motorcycle, a dedicated number demonstrator models have been made available to allow customers to experience the latest Street Sports contender from Suzuki said National Marketing Manager, Lewis Croft

Suzuki has a philosophy of creating value that exceeds the customers expectation and what better way to back this up is with a test ride experience.

Customers will also be pleased with the GSX-S1000F price of just $15,790 plus on costs which positions the Suzuki well ahead of the competition.

The roots of the GSX series started in 1976 with the GS750. It was Suzuki’s first 4-stroke in-line-four cylinder powered sportbike. Its performance, handling and durability impressed riders all over the world.

In 1980, the GS engine evolved to 16-valve design with the introduction of the GSX750E. It was the origin of the glorious GSX lineage, followed by the radical GSX1100S KATANA in 1981, and the legendary, original GSX-R750 in 1985.

The original concept for GSX was high-performance sportbike, featuring broad powerband, nimble handling, and great durability. This engineering philosophy is still alive today in all current GSX models, from the top-end GSX-RR MotoGP race machine to street legal production models, like the new GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F.

The GSX-S1000F is powered by an enhanced version of the legendary K5-K8 series 999cc, long stroke, DOHC, In-line four-cylinder GSX-R1000 engine that claimed multiple championships worldwide including the 2005 WSBK title.

The GSX-S1000F is also Suzukis first sportsbike to feature Suzukis advanced traction control system which allows the rider to control throttle with more confidence in various riding conditions. The 3-mode system continuously monitors front and rear wheel speeds, throttle position sensor, crank position sensor and gear position sensor, and quickly reduce engine output when wheel spin is detected. This enables the rider to enjoy sport riding with more confidence, with less stress and fatigue

To ensure top-level braking performance the GSX-S1000F is equipped with the same top-of-the-line Brembo monobloc calipers straight from the GSX-R1000 which also feature an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) to assist the rider maintaining directional control even during hard braking.

Suzuki engineers 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.

Top shelf Renthal aluminium Fatbar handlebars and a full multi-function LCD instrument cluster cap off the already impressive package.

A perfect fit for riders seeking an aggressively styled machine with supersports DNA on the streets, the Suzuki GSX-S1000F offers all that and so much more.

The all-new Suzuki GSX-S1000F is available now from Australian dealerships in two aggressive and sporty styled colour schemes Metallic Blue and Metallic Matte Grey for a recommended retail price of $15,790 and backed by Suzukis two-year unlimited-kilometre warranty.
