To define the GSX-S1000GT line, the designers were inspired by fighter jets. The sculptural forms are embellished with modern LED headlights and all the various elements perform a precise aerodynamic function, verified in the wind tunnel. The result is excellent protection and great stability even at the highest speeds. The 36-liter side bags, supplied as standard, can accommodate a full-face helmet and fit perfectly into the silhouette of the motorcycle.

Driving position

The upright riding position guarantees total control in every situation. The wide handlebar, comfortable saddle and rubber-coated footpegs create a perfect triangulation, which inspires immediate confidence and is not tiring on long journeys. The tank also favors the integration between the rider and the bike, since it can be wrapped well with the legs, although the 19-liter capacity ensures a great autonomy. The passenger in turn enjoys an excellent accommodation, with a large seat, practical aluminum handles to hold on to and footrests placed at the right distance from the saddle.
