After launching Suzuki Gixxer SF, Suzuki become the first Company to Offer Cheapest Full-Faired bike in India, but that doesn’t Stop Suzuki from launching more New Bike and adding in their Portfolio for India but “With More Power Comes with Great Price” so this will be not going to be the Cheapest bike again but will be the Most Expensive.
Building on the popularity of the Hayabusa and the Intruder would be the GSX-S1000 naked and the S1000F, which is a faired iteration of the streetfighter. To be launched internationally in June, both models could land here in the same month.
Both these Power-Junkie machines are powered by the same engine that powered the GSX-R1000 (2005-2008). Tuned for the streets, it happens to be a 999 cc, 4-stroke, liquid cooled, DOHC, in-line four motor that pushes out 144 bhp and 105 Nm of torque. Both bikes are equipped with a traction control system that can be set for three different power modes, which can even be switched off altogether.
Built around a twin-spar aluminium frame which is lighter than the current GSX-R1000, both these Suzukis come equipped with KYB inverted front forks and a single, link-type rear monoshock. The instrument cluster is a white back-lit screen that reads out speed, revs, has an odometer, dual tripmeters, gear position indicator, coolant and ambient temperatures, driving range, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption, traction control, and a clock.
In terms of dimensions, both the bikes measure 2,115mm in length, 795mm in width and 1,080mm in height. They come with a ground clearance of 140mm and features LCD instrument cluster with odometer, dual tripmeters, gear position indicator ambient temperatures, fuel consumption, and a clock.
Both bikes have been equipped with Brembo anchors, ABS being an option. When launched, the Suzuki GSX-S1000 will compete against the Kawasaki Z1000 and Honda CB1000, while the faired S1000 will be pitted against the Ninja 1000.
Suzuki India will also increase the count of dealerships across the country, taking the current number to 1500 by March next year. Interestingly, they have also announced that the company will focus on premium products which appeal to young and young-at-heart customers in the coming months, as competition in the commuter segment is too severe and margins are lesser.
Both the bike going to be launched in June and their expected price to be Rs 11,00,000 for Suzuki GSX-S1000 and Rs 12,00,000 for GSX-S1000F bike.
