Own The Streets

Born on the racetrack and raised on the street, the MY18 GSX-S1000 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.


  • Newly added ventilation holes between the pistons on the upper crankcase contributes to reduce pumping loss and increasing power output. (Power : 107kW > 110kW, Torque: 106Nm > 108Nm)
  • Back-torque-limiting clutch contributes to smoother downshifting and corner entry.
  • Colour of the footrests, gearshift lever, rear brake pedal and brake & clutch levers have been changed from silver to black.
  • Iridium spark plugs heighten the spark strength and combustion efficiency, contributing to higher power, more linear throttle response, easier engine start-up, and a more stable idle compared to conventional type.
  • The cam profiles are designed to optimise the valve timing to tune the GSX-R1000 engine – which is designed keeping in mind racetrack use – to obtain the GSX-S1000 power character that’s more suited to the streets and winding roads.
  • Radiator shrouds efficiently guide air to the newly designed and highly efficient round shaped radiator. Lightweight and compact liquid-cooled oil cooler.
  • Pistons were engineered with use of FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis to achieve optimal rigidity and weight.
  • The 4-2-1 exhaust system contributes to stronger low-to-mid range output with exciting exhaust notes and adrenaline-rushing performance.
  • Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.
