Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.)

Introduces a collection of advanced electronic systems that lets the rider easily optimise the performance characteristics to best suit their riding style and level of riding experience. S.I.R.S. brings greater confidence and enjoyment by allowing the GT to be more controllable and predictable  whilst also being less fatiguing.  

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)

SDMS is designed to offer the rider a choice between three different modes that change output characteristics to match riding conditions or preferences. 

Mode A (Active) provides the sharpest response as the rider opens the throttle. Settings for torque characteristics are finely tuned to deliver the exciting acceleration that had earned the previous generation GSX-S1000 high acclaim. It is well suited for use when hitting the throttle hard, such as when participating in track day events or enjoying a sporty run on winding roads in good weather.

Mode B (Basic) reaches the same level of maximum output, but features softer response and a more linear power delivery curve as the rider opens the throttle. The settings are tuned to make the bike more controllable and instill confidence when accelerating, and to make it a good fit for a wide range of rider styles and road conditions in everyday riding.

Mode C (Comfort) provides the softest throttle response and more gentle torque characteristics, delivering power in smoother linear fashion while still reaching the same level of maximum power output. The gentler throttle response and limited torque production as the throttle is opened makes more obedient and controllable when riding on wet or otherwise slippery surfaces, when road conditions are bad, or even when the rider wants to relax and enjoy a ride home after a long outing.

  • Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS)

    The new GSX-S1000 features an updated version of STCS with a wider selection of 5 mode settings (+ OFF), as opposed to the 3 modes (+ OFF) of the previous generation. The finer incremental control over settings allows the new 5-mode traction control system to better fit a more diverse variety of riding conditions and styles.

  • Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle System

    The system’s finer control also allows it to be tuned to best match each of the SDMS modes. The overall result is linear power delivery that responds faithfully to your intentions, whether riding on the street or heading out to enjoy a sporty run, as well as improved controllability when opening the throttle while cornering.

  • Bi-directional Quick Shift System

    Lets you shift up or down more quickly and easily without the need to operate the clutch or throttle. When decelerating, the system automatically opens the throttle valves just enough to increase rpm and match engine speed to the next-lower gear ratio. The result of this hands-free automatic blipping function combines seamlessly with engine braking to create a highly satisfying experience when downshifting.

  • Cruise Control

    Allows the rider to maintain a set speed without operating the throttle helping reduce fatigue when touring long distances, particularly when travelling at constant speed on highways. Cruise Control can be set at speeds between 30km/h to 180km/h when riding in 2nd gear or higher. The speed can be easily adjusted upward or downward using the (plus or minus) select switch on the left handlebar.

Power and Reliability to go the distance

The high-performance  999cm3 four-stroke DOHC liquid-cooled inline-four engine that powers the GSX-S1000GT inherits true winning superbike DNA. This street-tuned engine is based on core architecture that benefits from know-how acquired over decades of developing the GSX-R1000 to win countless production race victories, while also incorporating advanced technologies developed for MotoGP racing.

  Previous GSX-S1000F NEW GSX-S1000GT
Maximum power 110kW (150PS) / 10,000rpm 112kW (152PS) / 11,000rpm
Acceleration (0-200m) 6.70 sec 6.64 sec
Acceleration (0-400m) 10.25 sec 10.15 sec

The new version delivers superbike-level performance while minimising vibration to make riding more exciting, more comfortable, and less tiring, whether travelling long distances on the highway or enjoying a ride around town. Its broad, smooth torque curve featuring greater cumulative torque production consistently delivers abundant power throughout the engine’s operating range and makes this grand tourer equally adept at street riding as it is at high-speed long-distance touring, even under load when carrying gear and a passenger on the back.

The new GT complements its slipper clutch, which helps provide smoother deceleration when downshifting, with a new assist function that increases the clutch’s clamping force under acceleration to allow the introduction of softer springs. The result is a light touch to clutch lever operation that helps reduce left hand fatigue on long rides, especially when caught in busy traffic.

Another development goal was to further enhance the durability of an already highly durable engine design. Attention to detail extends to a change from cut threads to rolled threads for the holes in the upper crankcase cover. Rolled threads are harder and less prone to cracking from wear, so help maximise holding strength for the journal bolts that support the crank.

The new engine produces greater torque than its predecessor at low rpm. The broader, smoother torque curve has fewer peaks and valleys than before, it also achieves greater overall cumulative torque production across the engine’s operating range.

This results in more predictable and controllable response and consistently abundant power delivery for a more exciting riding experience, particularly in the mid-to-high rpm range where the enhanced torque output is most noticeable.

A Chassis Engineered for Distance

The twin-spar aluminium frame on the new GT is built to deliver nimble handling and great road holding ability that will go the distance, even when carrying a passenger and full loaded with gear. When viewed from the side, the main tubes run straight from the steering head to the swingarm pivot. This design helps achieve high rigidity and lighter weight than competitor models.

Newly designed subframe rails serve two benefits. Firstly, they provide more rigid and secure attachment points for the optional side cases. Secondly, the new design lowers the height of the seat rails, making it possible to increase the thickness of the pillion seat for greater passenger comfort.

The sturdy aluminium swingarm comes straight from the GSX-R1000. Ruggedly braced and with the appeal of its superbike looks, this swingarm features great road holding ability and the strength to withstand long rides, heavy loads, and the demands of sporty runs.

Greater Comfort and Control

R&D to find the optimum riding position for touring led to angling the handlebar grips 14mm closer to the rider than on the previous GSX-S1000F. This enables the rider to have a more upright posture, which enhances comfort.

The new tapered handlebars are also lengthened to achieve a 23mm wider grip placement. In addition to making the bars more comfortable to hold, this gives the rider greater control over steering while requiring less effort to steer the bike.

 

Superior Braking

The GT is equipped with top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers. The calipers each have four opposed ø32mm pistons acting on a ø310mm floating-mount disc for strong stopping power.

An antilock braking system (ABS) helps the rider stay in directional control even during hard braking. The system is programmed to monitor wheel speed and match stopping power to the available traction. The ABS control unit has a compact, lightweight design that contributes to the bike’s nimbleness.

Performance-tuned Suspension

The ø43mm KYB inverted front forks feature 120mm of travel with  fully adjustable damping, rebound, compression and spring pre-load settings.The link-type rear suspension boasts 130mm of rear wheel travel with adjustable rebound damping and spring pre-load settings that react efficiently to varying road surfaces to maintain an agile and stable feel.

The suspension settings were thoroughly tested and tuned to optimise to suit the new Dunlop SPORTMAX 2 tyres   achieving nimbler handling and improved steering into corners.

Wind-cutting aerodynamics

Aerodynamics and wind protection are of critical importance to meeting the high-speed touring demands of a grand tourer, both in terms of dynamic performance and comfort.

The GT’s new front cowl, windscreen and mirrors are all meticulously designed to contribute to achieving the requisite level of aerodynamic performance. Each component was analysed early in the development process to identify any issues. That was followed by repeated cycles of wind tunnel testing, analysis and refinement to ensure that all the pieces work together harmoniously to maximise wind protection and make the rider more comfortable by reducing sources of stress such as exposure to the cold and elements. This reduces fatigue when touring at high speeds and frees the rider to concentrate on enjoying the experience.

While aerodynamic performance was a given, design priorities for the GT’s new windscreen focused keenly on maximising wind protection to deliver relaxing comfort worthy of a grand touring riding experience. At the same time, the designers were also concerned with keeping the form as compact as possible and making the screen attractive. Development involved repeated rounds of wind tunnel testing and analysis, with the design begin refined at each stage until it achieved just the right overall balance to satisfy the development team’s goals.

In addition to deflecting wind away from the rider’s head, folds introduced along the sides also help shield the rider’s shoulders from the wind. The result is greater comfort, reduced stress from exposure to the cold and other elements, and reduced fatigue on long rides.

Additionally, rubber mounts introduced in the top bridge and handlebar brackets reduce the amount of vibration transmitted to the rider’s hands, thereby contributing to reducing fatigue and improving comfort. It is of particular benefit on long rides or when touring.

Vibration-absorbing footrests

The aluminium pegs of both the rider and passenger footrests are covered with vibration-absorbing rubber.

This reduces the amount of vibration transmitted to the feet, which in turn lessens fatigue, especially on long rides.

Additionally, the footrests are positioned lower so they require less bending of the knees and ankles and thereby help provide greater comfort.

 

A more relaxing ride

The rider and pillion seats feature a sporty and attractive new design that aims maximise comfort on long rides. Both are covered in a new skin material that provides positive grip. The rider’s seat is also shaped to offer freedom of movement when enjoying a sporty ride. Special effort went into designing the thickness, shape and size of the pillion seat to maximise passenger comfort, and into designing the new grab bars at the back of the seat for comfort and ease of use.

19L Fuel Tank

The new fuel tank increases capacity to 19L, all without appearing larger. Its large capacity combines with the engine’s excellent fuel efficiency to bring the rider greater peace of mind by blessing the GT with superior touring range per tank of fuel.

LED Tail Light and Indicators

The rear combination light and new indicators use LEDs for high visibility and long life. With a clear lens covering the LEDs, the design of the rear combination light conveys a premium feel that emphasises the stylish lines of the compact tail section.
