suzuki GSX S1000 Carbon Edition ABS


Make your GSX-S really stand out with this new special edition. Dialling up the aggression and attitude of the standard model, this GSX-S1000/A comes fitted with a comprehensive package of extras as standard.

The Genuine Suzuki Accessories fitted to this special edition machine include carbon fibre rear hugger, carbon fibre crankcase cover, carbon fibre alternator cover, carbon fibre clutch cover, blue Brembo monoblock radial front brake calipers and a striking neon yellow graphics kit covering both wheels and bodywork. Get ready for crowds to gather and heads to turn wherever you go.

4-stroke,4-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine

This is the engine designed to own the racetrack. Tuned for the streets. Customized to a rakish roadster bound to become a legend in its own right. The broad range of power and torque is untouchable. It is everything you are looking for on the road. And then some. State-of-the-art technology provides ultimate performance, increasing the pleasure of every ride. Everything to experience. Nothing to stand in your way.

Legendary performance tuned for the street

The GSX-S1000 is powered by a street-tuned version of the four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cm3, inline-four engine that became a legend in the 2005 GSX-R1000. The newly honed engine delivers smooth throttle response and immediate, controlled acceleration, so the sport rider experiences adrenaline-rushing performance.

A long-stroke design with a 73.4mm bore and a 59.0mm stroke allows the combustion chambers to be compact. It therefore allows a combination of an optimal compression ratio, a flat-top piston shape, and a broad spread of power throughout the rev range.

Advances inside the engine begin with the pistons. Suzuki used finite-element-analysis techniques to make the pistons light without compromising their rigidity. The benefits include broad torque and quick acceleration.

New cam profiles optimise the valve timing to achieve power characteristics that are ideally suited to city streets and twisty suburban roads. Iridium spark plugs ensure strong sparks for efficient combustion that translates into higher power, linear throttle response, easier engine startup, and stable idling.

Each bore is plated with Suzuki’s own race-proven nickel-phosphorus-silicon-carbide coating, which reduces friction, enhances heat transfer, durability, and ring seal, and is known as Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM).

A newly designed radiator with an efficient round shape helps to keep the engine temperature consistent. Shrouds guide air to the radiator core. A liquid-cooled oil cooler is light and compact. Its small dimensions help to make the bike look neat by creating more room for the exhaust system.

Cutting-edge engine management

An engine control module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has settings that are optimised for sport riding. A key technology under the ECM’s control is an updated version of the downdraft double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system that has always been part of the GSX-R legend. The SDTV helps to ensure efficient combustion and smooth power delivery. Ten-hole fuel injectors optimise fuel atomization to promote combustion efficiency and limit fuel consumption. The fuel injection works with an O2 feedback system and an intake pressure sensor to further heighten combustion efficiency and limit exhaust emissions. The exhaust system has a 4-2-1 design with equaliser pipes between the 1-and-4 and 2-and-3 header pipes. The system fine-tunes the exhaust pulses for strong low-to-mid-range output. The exhaust chamber after the joint section fits under the engine, so the muffler is minimally sized for a clean, agile look. A catalyser in the exhaust chamber keeps emissions low enough to satisfy the strict Euro 3 regulations. The exhaust pipe incorporates a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system. A servo-actuated butterfly valve opens to a degree calculated from the engine speed, throttle position, and gear position. It controls exhaust pressure waves to enhance combustion at low revs.
