Suzuki Motor has introduced the 2022 Suzuki GSX-S1000 – a new street machine that has been completely updated and aims to deliver an exciting new riding experience with increased power, control and agility combined with a striking new look.
“The GSX-S1000 has been a very successful motorcycle for Suzuki due in large part to its legendary GSX-R-based powerplant,” said Kerry Graeber, vice president, division manager MC/ATV sales and marketing for Suzuki Motor. “The new machine features a comprehensive list of performance and styling enhancements that improve on the original version in every way. With its aggressive street fighter looks coupled with superb, open-class performance we can’t wait for our customers and dealers to experience the new 2022 Suzuki GSX-S1000.”
According to the announcement, the first thing one notices about the 2022 GSX-S1000 is its aggressive look featuring the “Razor Sharp and Ready to Strike” design concept, led by a new stacked LED headlight package. The minimalist cowling that surrounds the headlight adds even more sharp lines and a sense of tension inspired by Suzuki’s MotoGP World Champion racing machines and stealth aircraft.
The compact front-end design pairs with a slim tail section and compact exhaust system to establish a clean, agile look. The minimalist rear tail section also accentuates the muscular look of the engine, fuel tank, and mid-section, resulting in a mass-forward design that delivers a dynamic and aggressive stance for the new GSX-S1000.
Powering the 2022 Suzuki GSX-S1000 is an updated 999cc, liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engine that builds its superbike performance heritage through key refinements aimed at delivering smooth and powerful performance across the rev range. The new motor features an updated 4-2-1 exhaust system that meets Euro 5 emission standards. Updated camshafts and valve springs, a new fuel injection system, and a new airbox work together to deliver increased power and a broader, smoother torque curve for a more exciting riding experience. In addition, the GSX-S1000 now features the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) for smoother deceleration and better control when downshifting.
The Suzuki GSX-S1000 is the next motorcycle in the Suzuki lineup to include the highly advanced Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.). The S.I.R.S. system on this new 1000cc street machine includes the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), Suzuki Traction Control, Ride by Wire Electronic Throttle, Bi-Directional Quick Shift, Suzuki Easy Start, and Low RPM Assist systems. These advanced Suzuki electronic systems enable the rider to optimize the performance characteristics of the motorcycle to best suit riding conditions, varying road surfaces, as well as the rider’s level of confidence and experience.
Achieving the right balance of performance, agility, stability, and control demands attention to every aspect of chassis design. The 2022 Suzuki GSX-S1000 delivers on all of those points by utilizing a proven twin-spar aluminum frame combined with a sturdy aluminum-alloy braced swing arm straight off the GSX-R1000. Fully adjustable KYB suspension works perfectly with a new wider tapered handlebar for increased control and agility. An updated seat design, new wheels and new Dunlop Roadsport 2 tires, and a new larger fuel tank combined with ABS-equipped radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers and 310mm brake rotors all work together to produce the most agile, comfortable, and exciting GSX-S1000 yet.
Wrap it all up in three stunning color combinations including a brilliant Metallic Triton Blue, Metallic Matte Mechanical Gray inspired by camouflaged jet fighters, concrete, and asphalt, and the sophisticated Glass Sparkle Black color and you’ve got an amazing new Suzuki built to own the streets.
