Suzuki GSX-S1000 Gets More Power and Slippery Clutch

Technical updates for the Suzuki super-naked

Suzuki GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F (same bike, but with fairings and a higher windscreen) get 150 horsepower and a slippery clutch for 2017. 

The power and torque update is a minor one – until now these bikes were capable of 143 horsepower. So, more likely Suzuki engineers had a better fueling in their minds, not just a simple horsepower figure. 

There were some journalists complaining about the unrefined fueling and maybe Suzuki wanted to fix the issue.

As for the slippery-clutch, it was a necessary feature for Suzuki GSX-S1000 to keep the pace with its competitors in the super naked market. 

There are minor visual updates also, such as new black levers and foot control, while the F version got a tinted windshield. 

Price:

Suzuki GSX-S1000 –  €12,495/ £9,699/ $10,499

Suzuki GSX-S1000F – €12,995/ £10,299/ $10,999
