With the GSX-S1000, Suzuki changes motorcycling for the better, again...

The 2016 GSX-S1000 is in the same family tree as the GSX-R750 born in 1985 and still dominant today. The new GSX-S models carry the spirit of Suzuki GSX-R to the street. They’re also closely related to the GSX-RR, Suzuki’s new MotoGP race machine.

It’s more than just an attitude, a spirit, or a lineage. This is about shared technology and components; it’s about performance-packed hard parts evolving from one generation to the next. The GSX-S1000 is powered by a 999cc inline four-cylinder powerplant that’s based on the long-stroke GSX-R1000 engine, which makes for ideal street-riding power and torque curve. Focused on making big power through the low and mid-range, this engine also uses cams optimized to deliver street-dominating power.

Equipped with a powerful engine, Suzuki’s Advanced Traction Control System*, Brembo brakes, and a chassis designed for street riding comfort, the 2016 GSX-S1000 is a street bike packed with some serious performance.

The naked-style single headlight GSX-S1000 is equipped with angular radiator shrouds that enhance the aggressive image and aid cooling performance.

From the DNA of a supersport legend comes the pure sport roadster, the GSX-S1000. A motorcycle built for real-world excitement. Inheriting the genuine engine and main components of the GSX-R1000, this thrilling machine puts the feel of world-beating performance in your hands. Take it to the streets, take it on the open road and get comfortable stretching every ride into a journey. Take control on the pure sport roadster.

With manufacturers still releasing their 2015 models, here we have a completely new 2016 model from Suzuki!

A big welcome to our very first 2016 motorcycle model to hit the Cool Wall!

No prices yet, but I don't expect it to be overly pricey.

It's a very nice looking street style machine I am not an I-4 guy but plenty are and if the price is decent it looks a little curvyer than the z1000 Kawi and has more power than the FZ-09 and 07 I like them better BTW but IMO this is a cool bike.
there aint nothin like it

This one for me is awesome. After owning a Z750S, I see that this new GSX-S1000 is kind of chip off of that block but IMO a "prettier" bike than the Z1000. I am sure this bike is a blast to ride, and I appreciate that it is a naked sports bike too. Awesome in that blue colour too! :mrgreen:

Definitely a good lookin' scoot. I like the headlight shroud particularly, which looks like a robotic insect in profile.

Impracticle for anything I'd want to do on a bike, but certainly something other riders would get enjoyment out of. Also, I like most of what Zuke does and appreciate their overall presentation.

I wouldn't personally own one of these, so I can't give it an Awesome. But I'll give this a Cool to be sure.

Awesome. Maybe it is because I am getting old, but I really like a bike I can ride for more than 30 minutes, as much as I love sport bikes like the Ninja ZX-10R, Suzuki GSXR1000/750, Aprilia RSV4 and the like, but I am at the point where my wrist and back start to hurt way too soon on any "Race Replica" motorcycle. That is why I Love the "Naked Sport Bike" class. Handlebars instead of clip ons, a more rational seating position, you still get most of the handling with much more comfort. It is great to see so many great naked sport bikes out this year from KTM, BMW, Aprilia, Kawasaki, Honda, Yamaha, Triumph, Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta, Ducati, and Suzuki, maybe I am not the only one getting old.

I love me some comfy do-it-all standards, so this is at least a cool for me. Now can we have the same engine, suspension and electronics in a more classically styled bike?

I still do not like all the angular bits of plastic. Yes, this is now the prevailing trend, but my preference is for the classic, rounded look.

Feeling old and grumpy,

I voted: Awesome

Wow, it's great to see the GSX (OR GSR) series come to North America! Both the 1000 and 750 (my fav is the 750 one) will give another great choice to riders. I'd give it an Awesome+ if it was more "retro" looking, like Hanson, i'm not a super fan of the new designs. The blue one really does look awesome, the red is pretty cool too.

The power of the GSX-1000R engine in a naked, comfortable bike? I'm in!

No work on pricing yet (I just checked again) but if it's around $10k, that would be nice.

2016 Suzuki GSX-S1000 - Coolness Factor = 71.2%
Featured: October 31st, 2014 - November 7th, 2014
Most popular vote category: Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=50270
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... -S1000.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Suzuki GSX-S1000 is:

Awesome (3 points) 32% [ 12 ]
Cool (2 points) 49% [ 18 ]
Uncool (1 point) 19% [ 7 ]
Fail (0 point) 0% [ 0 ]

Total votes: 37

= a Coolwall Factor of 71.2%

NOTES: Suzuki gets it and many, many other manufacturers have recently got it as well. It's that riders want BOTH power and comfort. Before we had the choice of power (Supersports) or comfort (touring/cruisers) with very little in the mix. The new GSX series from Europe brings that mix to North America. Maybe they should use my tagline "Go Naked. It's just more fun".

Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!
