The GSX-S1000 launched in 2015 as a new model developed to bring the fun of sport riding to riders on the street. At its heart was a street-tuned version of the powerful long-stroke engine that carried the GSX-R1000 to countless superbike and endurance race victories. This engine was skillfully paired with a compact and lightweight chassis, state-of-the-art running gear and a comfortable upright riding position. Just as the GSX-R1000 was built to “own the racetrack”, the GSX-S1000 was created to “own the street”.
The new 2022 GSX-S1000 now aims to deliver greater controllability, agility, and power for an even more exciting riding experience, while complying with worldwide emissions standards. A multitude of updates hone the GSX-S1000’s physique into an even tighter and more striking package that is ready to turn heads and own the streets.
Styling immediately draws your attention to the 2022 GSX-S1000. Tight, angular styling makes it clear that this light and muscular, naked sportbike is a serious contender. It’s hard not to stare at the new stacked LED headlights housed in a minimalistic cowling that resides between a pair of MotoGP-inspired winglets protruding from the angular radiator shrouds.
The GSX-R-based engine is exposed as a warning to others that this new Suzuki makes more peak power with a boosted torque curve that delivers street-dominating power. Riders can keep that power under control with the new electronic Ride-by-Wire throttle bodies and the latest version of the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) that smooths shifting and engine braking.
There’s more GSX-R DNA in the chassis with its aluminum, twin-spar frame design and superbike-braced swingarm. The suspension features a fully adjustable, inverted KYB fork and easy-to-adjust rear shock. Stopping performance is stellar via the dual, ABS-equipped**, radial-mounted, four-piston Brembo front brake calipers and 310mm floating rotors. Wider than ever before, the cast-aluminum handlebar provides a comfortable reach and the proper leverage to hustle the GSX-S1000 through the corners.
The 2022 GSX-S1000 now has the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) in its corner. Make this bike your own using the three-mode Suzuki Drive Mode Selector and the updated, five-mode (and OFF) Advanced Traction Control System*. Give your clutch hand a rest with the new Bi-directional Quick Shift system. Suzuki’s popular Easy Start and Low RPM Assist systems get the fun started without any hassle.
Three available body colors, including Suzuki’s hero Metallic Triton Blue, new Metallic Matte Mechanical Gray, and the ever-popular Glass Sparkle Black combine with new logos to help position the 2022 GSX-S1000 as the sport’s dominant naked sportbike.
