Suzuki Australia is offering free on-road costs on their GSX-S1000 streetfighter saving riders $1200 from March 2019. The bike was updated for last year’s model with more power, torque and control, plus some cosmetic updates. It cost $16,690 ride away, but it is now being offered at $15,490 ride away in two new colours: Metallic Triton Blue and Metallic Matte Black (Z-model). GSX-S1000 updates The GSX-S1000 is powered by a GSX-R1000 engine “tuned for the streets with a fatter and meatier bottom-to-mid”. Peak power has increased from the previous model’s 107kW (145ps) to 110kW (150ps) and maximum torque has increased from 106Nm to 108Nm. The improved performance is thanks to newly added crankcase ventilation holes which reduce pumping losses and comply with Euro 4 emissions regulations. A back-torque-limiting clutch has been added to contribute to smoother downshifts and corner entry. Brembo monobloc calipers are the same specification as on the GSX-R1000R with four opposed 32mm piston callipers and 310mm floating-mount discs and ABS. The front brake hose has been updated for claimed improvements in initial stopping performance and feeling.See alsoMotorbike newsNews‘Mt Glorious tar ‘not so glorious’ It has 43mm KYB inverted forks with fully adjustable compression, rebound damping and spring preload.
