SHARPER, STRONGER, SMARTER
Born of race-winning, track-proven DNA and raised on the street, the honed physique of the new GSX-S1000 morphs it into an even tighter and more striking package that is ready to turn heads and own the streets.
It’s all about commanding performance, confidence-inspiring controllability, rider friendliness, and looks that just can’t be beat.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)
SDMS is designed to offer the rider a choice between three different modes that change output characteristics to match riding conditions or preferences. Mode A (Active) provides the sharpest response as the rider opens the throttle. Settings for torque characteristics are finely tuned to deliver the exciting acceleration that had earned the previous generation GSX-S1000 high acclaim. It is well suited for use when hitting the throttle hard, such as when participating in track day events or enjoying a sporty run on winding roads in good weather. Mode B (Basic) reaches the same level of maximum output but features a softer response and a more linear power delivery curve as the rider opens the throttle. The settings are tuned to make the bike more controllable and instil confidence when accelerating, and make it a good fit for a wide range of rider styles and road conditions in everyday riding. Mode C (Comfort) provides the softest throttle response and more gentle torque characteristics, delivering power in a smoother linear fashion while still reaching the same level of maximum power output. The gentler throttle response and limited torque production as the throttle is opened make it more obedient and controllable when riding on wet or otherwise slippery surfaces, when road conditions are bad, or even when the rider wants to relax and enjoy a ride home after a long outing.
Three-mode traction control system
Suzukis advanced traction control system lets the rider control the throttle with more confidence in diverse conditions, so it makes sport riding more enjoyable and less tiring. The system checks the front and rear wheel speeds, the throttle position sensor, the crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor 250 times a second. It quickly reduces engine output by effecting control over the ignition timing whenever it detects wheelspin. The systems control over engine output feels so smooth and natural, it does not detract from riding pleasure. The rider can set the system to any of three modes or turn it off. The modes differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode one is for sport riding with minimal intervention from the system. Mode three gives maximal traction control for riding in poor conditions. Mode two offers a balance that is ideal for typical road conditions.

Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S)
The latest generation GSX-S1000 adopts a collection of advanced electronic systems that comprise the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.). Included are the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), Suzuki Traction Control, Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle, Bi-directional Quick Shift, Suzuki Easy Start, and Low RPM Assist systems. These enable the rider to optimise performance characteristics to best suit riding conditions and varying road surfaces, as well as their level of confidence and experience. By assisting the rider, they help make the bike more controllable, more predictable, and less tiring to operate, whether out for a sporty run or enjoying a ride on city streets. These attributes benefit the rider by instilling greater confidence and allowing them to concentrate on enjoying the riding experience.
