The upright driving position ensures excellent ride comfort even in long-range touring and allows perfect control, when maneuvering from a standstill as well as when cornering.
The GSX-S1000GT capitalizes on the experiences gained with the MotoGP and with the iconic GSX-R and is projected into a new digital era, thanks to a 6,5-inch color TFT LCD display that can be connected to the smartphone.
The free Suzuki mySPIN app allows easy access to contacts, maps, music, phone functions and calendar even while driving.
The GT is sold in three colors to choose from at 15.890 Euros (FC price including VAT) with a set of travel bags in the same color and is covered by a four-year warranty. The first deliveries are scheduled for November.
The GSX-S1000GT marries an innovative design language, which evolves the styles recently introduced by the street fighter GSX-S1000 in a sport touring key. The line with decisive and futuristic features immediately suggests what its character and potential are in terms of performance.
In every element of the fairing, as well as in the windshield and in the mirrors, form and function go hand in hand to satisfy the view and cut the air as best as possible, offering protection from the air, cold and bad weather, together with driving precision. absolute, even at the highest speeds. The side bags, in the same color as the bodywork, can be opened and removed with the same starter key and fit perfectly into the shape, thanks to the slim shape of the rear section, designed ad hoc.
The ultra-modern aesthetic finds continuity in a clear and complete 6,5-inch color TFT LCD instrumentation that can be connected to smartphones, iOS or Android. Thanks to the free Suzuki mySPIN app and the intuitiveness of the controls placed on the left electrical block, it is easy to access the contacts, maps, music, telephone functions and calendar of your phone even while driving, to transform each output into a new and even more rewarding experience.
In spite of a capacity of 19 liters, the tank is well tapered in the area in contact with the legs, a choice that helps the driver to be perfectly inserted in the motorcycle. To allow the rider to feel the vehicle as an extension of himself, the Suzuki designers then paid great attention to the study of the driving position.
Compared to the GSX-S1000F it replaces in the price list, the GT has a handlebar that is 23 mm wider and with the ends closer to the torso. This setting ensures absolute mastery in traffic as well as on mountain trails and takes on a more relaxing position, thanks to the new profile of the saddle. With vibrations reduced to a minimum, comfort reaches exceptional levels and makes you arrive at your destination always relaxed and rested.
The presence of the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS), a platform electronics which manages various advanced systems in an integrated way. These devices help the pilot to develop an immediate confidence with the vehicle and allow him to adapt its performance to personal tastes and the situation, increasing involvement in driving and reducing fatigue over long periods. travel.
The ride-by-wire electronic throttle offers great sensitivity and interacts with the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), through which three driving modes can be selected. The different mappings modify the response of the engine to the movements of the accelerator, giving the opportunity to choose the type of delivery desired. The pilot can then adjust the Suzuki Traction Control System on five levels of intervention or deactivate it and set the preferred speed in constant speed transfers, thus entrusting the cruise control with the task of maintaining it automatically.
The SIRS also includes the “Quick Change” system - Bi-directional Quick Shift System, which allows you to shift up or down without using the clutch, and the practical Suzuki Easy Start and Low RPM Assist devices, which simplify starting and starting.
The fact that the rider feels in tune with his Suzuki, however, depends first of all on the goodness of the cycling and mechanical package. The GSX-S1000GT inherits DNA from superbike winner of the glorious GSX-R lineage.
From the latter comes, for example, the engine, which benefits from meticulous development work and delivers more torque (106 Nm at 9.250 rpm) and more power (112 kW / 152 HP at 11.000 rpm) than the unit previously used on the GSX-S1000F, despite the transition from the Euro 4 homologation to the more severe Euro 5. Beyond the higher peak values, the delivery curve is now wider, substantial and regular, a characteristic that is appreciated both in sporty driving and in tourism. To achieve this, the engineers worked on many fronts, for example modifying the profile of the camshafts, the throttle bodies, the air filter box and the exhaust system. The slipper clutch is now assisted thanks to the introduction of the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS), which reduces the effort required to operate the lever. In Hamamatsu they have optimized even the smallest details to improve reliability, even intervening on the type of thread of the studs.
The powertrain is housed in a rigid yet lightweight double-beam aluminum frame that directly connects the steering head and swingarm pivot, which in turn is taken from the GSX-R1000. The suspensions are fully adjustable, in spring preload and hydraulic brakes, in compression and rebound. Their calibration has been studied ad hoc in combination with the new Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 radial tires, produced with a specific carcass for the GSX-S1000GT with High Elongation Steel Jointless Belt technology.
The GSX-S1000GT can already be ordered from all Suzuki dealers.
The bike can be customized and adapted to your wishes and needs thanks to a rich catalog of accessories original.
