Suzuki reveals new GSX-S1000GT

Based on the exciting new GSX-S1000 platform, the new GSX-S1000GT aims to blend the high level of performance from its superbike-derived 999cc engine and agile, lightweight chassis with the comfort, functionality, and luxury associated with a true sports tourer.

Suzuki says the product concept for the GSX-S1000GT is ‘GT riding pleasure personified’. It lines up as a true sports tourer, combining the perfect blend of performance, agility, stability, comfort, control, connectivity, and style to deliver a premium experience worthy of the GT tag.

Engine features

– High performance 999cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled DOHC inline-four cylinder engine that delivers smooth, consistent power throughout the rev range. This enhances the riding experience in the low-to-midrange engine speeds more commonly used in everyday riding, all the way to the higher rev range used on long motorway journeys and sporty riding.
– The engine features a broad, smooth torque curve and a power delivery that reduces fatigue when touring at motorway speeds, allied to an electronics package that enables sportsbike levels of performance and acceleration.

– A compact 4-2-1 exhaust system positions the Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system behind the collector, along with catalytic converters and stylish exhaust that not only meets Euro 5 emissions standards, but also delivers an exciting exhaust note.
– Electronic throttle bodies help achieve a fine balance between idling speed control and power output characteristics, while also contributing to Euro 5 compliance.
– Exhaust and intake cam profiles help reduce emissions while achieving a balance of performance and controllability.
– Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) gives a light clutch lever operation, reducing rider fatigue especially when negotiating busy traffic. It also mitigates aggressive downshifts from sportier riding styles, too.
