Power-Hike And Slipper Clutch For 2017 GSX-S1000

Suzuki’s flagship super-naked gets a power-hike for 2017, with the GSX-S1000 now producing 150hp at 10,000rpm, thanks to new crankcase ventilation holes, while a new slipper clutch aids in smoother downshifts. Torque is also up to 108Nm at 9,500rpm.

The changes also extend to the faired GSX-S1000F, which uses the same engine and chassis as its naked sibling, but changes to suspension settings and the addition of a wind tunnel-tested fairing turn it into a versatile sportsbike.

Both bikes also feature a three-mode traction control system, that can be turned off, as well as Brembo monobloc calipers and ABS, a lightweight frame mated to the swingarm from the previous generation GSX-R1000, and fully adjustable KYB suspension.
