        After a series of video teasers hinting at the new GSX-S1000’s sharp new looks, Suzuki has finally taken the covers off of its top-of-the-line super naked. Totally restyled for the 2022 model year, the GSX-S1000 is the most aggressive-looking it has ever been, especially with its mass-forward design, functional side winglets, and futuristic stacked LED headlights.

        Styling isn’t the only thing that’s new for the GSX-S1000. A new multi-function LCD dash (sorry, no TFT just yet) allows access to the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System. Included in the SIRS is the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, Five-mode Suzuki Traction Control System, a bi-directional quick shifter, a ride-by-wire electronic throttle, Suzuki Clutch Assist system, and an easy-start system. It also gets a low rpm assist feature which prevents stalling. This bundle of electronic aids makes handling the liter-class streetfighter easier and more convenient.

        As for the engine, the GSX-S1000’s beating heart is still derived from the GSX-R1000, but now with a slew of tweaks to make it punchier, smoother, and better for street use. The999cc DOHC in-line-four now has more linear power and torque curves, with 150hp available at 11,000rpm. Suzuki achieved this smoother power spread through a slew of upgraded internals, like a new intake and exhaust camshaft with updated cam profiles, new valve springs, a new clutch, a redesigned airbox, and a new exhaust system that allows for aggressive streetfighter grunt while still meeting Euro 5 regulations.

        A lightweight twin-spar aluminum frame is the core of the GSX-S1000’s chassis, which has been designed to deliver nimble handling and great road-holding ability. Paired with the frame is an aluminum-alloy swingarm taken off of a previous-generation GSX-R1000, making for proper sportbike handling. Handling-focused updates include a 23mm wider handlebar for improved control and reduced fatigue, a fully-adjustable KYB suspension, and new Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tires.

        Other notable improvements include the aforementioned winglets that are inspired by Suzuki’s MotoGP efforts, as well as the restyled fuel tank that isn’t just more aggressive-looking, but also has an increased capacity of 19 liters.
