2017 GSX-S1000 ABS

As much as a GSX-R1000 owns the racetrack, the GSX-S1000 ABS owns the street. Developed using the attributes of the championship winning 2005 – 2008 generation GSX-R1000, this sportbike carries the spirit of the Suzuki performance to the street, with shared technology and components packaged into a chassis designed specifically for all-day riding comfort.

It’s more than just an attitude, a spirit, or a lineage though; it’s about performance-packed hard parts evolving from one generation to the next. The GSX-S1000 ABS is powered by a 999cc inline four-cylinder powerplant that’s based on the legendary long-stroke GSX-R1000 engine, which makes for ideal street-riding power and torque curve. Focused on making big power through the low and mid-range, this engine uses a valve-train that’s optimized to deliver street-dominating power.

Equipped with a powerful engine, Suzuki’s Advanced Traction Control System, a balanced KYB suspension, plus ABS-equipped Brembo and NISSIN brakes, the GSX-S1000 ABS is a street bike packed with some serious performance. Top that performance off with wild, rugged, and aggressive styling, and you have a naked roadster ready to attack and turn heads on the street.

With the GSX-S1000 ABS, Suzuki changes motorcycling for the better, again.

Additional Features

  • A variety of accessories for the GSX-S1000 ABS will be available from Suzuki Genuine Accessories. See your Suzuki dealer for more information.

Chassis Features

  • Lightweight and compact chassis is engineered to be agile and fun-to-ride for a wide range of riders. This ability starts with the low-mass rigid aluminum main frame coupled with the strong aluminum-alloy swingarm.
  • The new 43 mm inverted KYB forks have adjustable compression and rebound damping, and spring pre-load with a generous 120 mm (4.7 in) of front wheel travel.
  • The rear link-type suspension has a single Showa rear shock that features externally adjustable rebound and compression damping, along with adjustable ride height.
  • Antilock Brake System (ABS) monitors wheel speed 50 times per wheel rotation and matches stopping power to available traction.
  • The ABS-equipped brakes feature 310 mm floating-mount dual discs mated to Brembo mono-block front calipers with 4 opposite 32 mm pistons provide strong and consistent stopping power.
  • TRP 6-spoke lightweight cast aluminum wheels are furnished with Dunlop radial tires (120/70ZR17 front and 180/50ZR17 rear).
  • Matte black aluminum Renthal Fatbar handlebar is standard equipment offering excellent riding ergonomics with great vibration damping.
  • Low seat height of 815 mm (32 in.) with a sporty, yet upright riding position.

Electrical Features

  • The lightweight and compact LCD display includes speedometer, tachometer, odometer, dual tripmeters, gear position, coolant temperatures, driving range, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption, traction control, ABS, and a clock modes.
  • The display also features a white backlight gives great nighttime visibility and is flanked by LED indicators for the turn signals, high beam, malfunction, traction control, ABS, coolant temperature, and oil pressure.
  • New easy-start system needs just a simple push of the starter button without pulling the clutch lever if the transmission is in neutral.

Engine Features

  • 2 999cc, four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, inline-four engine based on the legendary GSX-R1000K8 powerplant with a finely tuned fuel injection system that use Suzuki’s innovative SDTV-equipped (Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve) 44 mm throttle bodies.
  • The 10-hole, long-nosed fuel injectors on each throttle body aid in creating better combustion efficiency while reducing fuel consumption.
  • The 73.4 mm x 59 mm long-stroke engine design helps create a broad spread of power throughout the entire rpm range.
  • New camshaft profiles were designed to optimize street performance while maintaining peak, racetrack level performance.
  • New pistons, engineered with use of FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis, are cast with optimal rigidity and weight. Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.
  • The GSX-S1000 ABS features Suzuki’s advanced Traction Control System* to let the rider control the throttle with more confidence in various riding conditions. It continuously monitors front and rear wheel speeds, throttle opening, engine speed, and the selected transmission gear to adjust engine output if wheel spin is detected.
  • There are four traction control modes (1, 2, 3, and OFF) and the difference between the modes are their sensitivity to road conditions. Mode 1 is lowest sensitivity level most suitable for skilled riders or in conditions that have good road surface grip (sport riding on good, smooth roads). Mode 2 is a moderate sensitivity level that is suitable for most riders or in conditions that have varied road surface grip (city riding, regular road conditions). Mode 3 is highest sensitivity level suitable for road conditions where the grip may be limited (wet or cold surfaces). OFF disengages all traction control features.
  • *Traction control is not a substitute for rider’s throttle control under the various conditions, and traction control cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when entering turns or while braking, and it does not control front wheel traction.
  • The 4-2-1 exhaust system contributes to a strong low-to-mid range output with exciting exhaust notes and adrenaline-rushing performance when the engine speed is increased. The Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system-equipped mid-muffler design enhances style and aids in mass centralization for great chassis balance.
  • Angular radiator shrouds efficiently guide cooling air to the new high-capacity curved radiator. Additional heat is removed from the engine via the use of a lightweight and compact liquid-cooled oil cooler.
  • 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.

Key Features

  • Suzuki presents its newest group of motorcycles with roots from the GSX series; these models move forward in an aggressive new direction with the latest state-of-the-art technology coupled with a sophisticated chassis refined for exceptional rider control and comfort.
  • Equipped with ABS*, the GSX-S1000 ABS bring rider support to a new class of bikes. Suzuki’s efficient ABS system, combined with the motorcycle’s base traction control, produces a motorcycle capable of delivering a great riding experience coupled with a unique level of poise.
  • *Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

Transmission Features

  • The proven six-speed close-ratio transmission features vertically staggered shafts to reduce overall engine length.
  • Rack and pinion clutch release and refined shift linkage helps the rider easily and quickly select the best gear for the riding conditions.
