Suzuki Motor Corporation has revealed the new 2021 GSX-S1000 model with a host of changes that includes a complete redesign, an updated engine and other new features. The deliveries of the new GSX-S1000 naked streetfighter for the European markets are likely to start in June as per the company.
The Suzuki GSX-S1000 has been appreciated worldwide for being comfortable and practical as well as providing smooth and linear power delivery. It is regarded as one of the most rider-friendly 1,000cc bikes in the world.
The update was necessary as Suzuki recognised that the model was getting too old in its outgoing avatar. Hence, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer updated the design and style of the motorcycle along with the engine. The bike got a brand new look with the introduction of a new vertically stacked LED headlamp setup.
The company also replaced the curves and creases of the older model with a new sharp and edgy styling. The updated GSX-S1000 model looks bigger due to the upgradation of the fuel tank. The new cowling and LED tail lamp with the exhaust end make the rear-end of the motorcycle look very stylish.
Coming to the specifications of the engine, the new Suzuki GSX-S1000 is equipped with an electronic throttle control called S.I.R.S (Suzuki Intelligent Ride System), and revised intake and exhaust systems. But, it has the same liquid-cooled, 999cc, inline-4-cylinder engine as the outgoing model and produces a maximum power of 150.19bhp at 11,000rpm and a peak torque of 105Nm at 9,250rpm. This has largely enhanced rideability with the increased throttle response as per the company.
The 2021 Suzuki GSX-S1000 will be offered with three switchable ride modes along with a bi-directional quick-shifter. Additional features will include a 5-level traction control system, cornering ABS, LCD instrumentation and many more. The updated motorcycle also complies with the Euro 5/BS6 emissions norms and is expected to hit the Indian markets later this year.
