Default Suzuki GSX-S1000 and F to launch soon in India

Suzuki will unveil two new litre-class sportsbikes in July 2015. This news was first revealed to Autocar by Atul Gupta, executive vice-president, Suzuki Motorcycle India.

Suzuki Motorcycle India has updated its website with the two motorcycles added to their India line-up.

The faired variant of the GSX-S with dual headlights upfront and a clear visor for wind deflection for the rider will be on offer. The naked version gets a single headlight and no visor. The bike also does not get fairing-mounted rear view mirrors. Six-spoke alloy wheels make way on both motorcycles. Suzuki provides the GSX-S1000 and F with safety features such as traction control and ABS braking system too. A fully digital instrument console also makes way here.

Both bikes are powered by a 999cc, four-stroke, four-cylinder and liquid-cooled engine. For suspension duty, both bikes are provided with upmarket USD forks up front and a monoshock does duty at rear with an alloy swingarm. Suzuki provides the GSX-S1000 and F with Brembo disc brakes up front and a single one at rear. Both bikes will be available in two colours — blue and red. Prices are expected to be announced soon.

This is good news but I think the bikes will be priced upwards of 10L.

I don't think Suzuki intends to join the middleweight segment yet inspite of always having capable performers (SV650).

The refreshed SV650 is now called the SFV650 and they have also launched the GSX-S750 naked abroad. When will we see these bikes?

All this while the Z800 has been selling quite well.

I'm guessing a price of around 17L ex-showroom. I'm personally looking forward to the launch of the S1000, but something like the GSX-S750 would genuinely make more sense. Litre class bikes seem excessive anyway and all the more so in India.

I never kept tabs on Suzuki's Indian website before but media is reporting that Suzuki has newly put up the information about both its new heavy bikes.

GSX-S1000F ABS

GSX-S1000 ABS


No mention of the prices anywhere.
