NEW GSX-S1000GT. POWER YOUR JOURNEY IN STYLE
Superbike derived performance paired with the latest technology and all-day comfort allows the new GSX-S1000GT to deliver next level sports touring experience for both rider and pillion. The thrilling 152PS, torque-rich powerplant and seamless quickshifter is just the start. A comfortable yet dynamic chassis, hard-luggage capability and cruise control means that miles of breath-taking roads are covered with ease. All this is combined with striking looks, a premium finish and a 6.5” colour TFT display with smartphone connectivity to round off the perfect machine for your next journey.
PERFORMANCE DISTANCE CONNECTION
POWER YOUR JOURNEY
The high performance, 999cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC inline-four cylinder engine that powers the GSX-S1000GT has been engineered to perform optimally in all types of riding conditions, whether touring over long distances or out for a sporty run, all while meeting Euro 5 emissions standards.
SPORT TOURING ERGONOMICS
An upright riding position provides all-day-riding comfort, while wide-set rubber mounted handlebars and aluminium footrests with rubber inserts reduce vibration and fatigue.
The GT windscreen focuses on maximising wind protection to deliver relaxing comfort worthy of a sports touring riding experience. At the same time, the designers were also concerned with keeping the form as compact as possible and making the screen attractive.
BI-DIRECTIONAL QUICKSHIFT SYSTEM
The bi-directional quickshifter enables the rider to shift up or down without operating the clutch. As standard equipment, this feature enhances the riding experience and reduces fatigue. When activated, the system automatically interrupts power delivery when accelerating just long enough to unload the transmission, thereby producing smoother, almost uninterrupted acceleration when the rider shifts up.
When decelerating, without manually blipping the throttle or using the clutch, the system automatically opens the throttle valves just enough to increase rpm and match engine speed to the next-lower gear ratio. The result of this hands-free automatic blipping function combines seamlessly with engine braking to create a highly satisfying experience when the rider downshifts.
SUZUKI TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM (STCS)
The GT is equipped with STCS with a selection of five modes (plus off) . The fine incremental control over settings allows the system to better fit the riding conditions in which the machine finds itself, whether riding alone or with a pillion, whether carrying luggage, or riding in inclement weather. This in turn instils greater confidence in the rider, regardless of experience, while reducing stress and fatigue.
COLOUR TFT DISPLAY AND SMARTPHONE CONNECTIVITY
The GSX-S1000GT display keeps you fully aware of all the bike’s systems, settings and real-time operating status. And when connected to the rider’s smartphone it can also display maps, incoming and outgoing phone calls, contacts, and music for even greater convenience, functionality and fun.
SUZUKI INTELLIGENT RIDE SYSTEM (SIRS)
The respective systems enable the rider to optimise performance characteristics to best suit riding conditions and varying road surfaces, as well as their level of confidence and experience. By assisting the rider, they help make the GT controllable and predictable, and less tiring to operate, both when touring for long distances and in everyday riding. These attributes benefit the rider by instilling greater confidence and allowing them to concentrate on enjoying the GT riding experience.
THE NEW FACE OF SPORT TOURING PERFORMANCE
Its sharp lines, radical front face, and all-round good looks tell the story of the GT riding experience.
STUNNING LED HEADLIGHTS
A pair of LED headlights are mounted horizontally to the body on the right and left of the cowling.
