2017 Suzuki GSX-S1000F ABS Review

2017 Suzuki GSX-S1000F ABS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Legendary Performance Tuned for the Street…

As much as a GSX-R1000 owns the racetrack, the GSX-S1000F ABS owns the road. Developed using the attributes of the championship winning 2005 – 2008 generation GSX-R1000, this touring-ready sportbike carries the spirit of the Suzuki performance to the street, with shared technology and components packaged into a chassis designed specifically for all-day riding comfort.

It’s more than just an attitude, a spirit, or a lineage though; it’s about performance-packed hard parts evolving from one generation to the next. The GSX-S1000F ABS is powered by a 999cc inline four-cylinder powerplant that’s based on the legendary 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 uses a valve-train that’s optimized to deliver street-dominating power.

Equipped with a powerful engine, Suzuki’s Advanced Traction Control System**, a balanced KYB suspension, plus ABS-equipped* Brembo and NISSIN brakes, the GSX-S1000F ABS is a street bike packed with some serious performance. Top that performance off with wild, rugged, and aggressive styling, a wind-cheating fairing and screen, and you have a touring-ready sportbike ready for the open road or corner carving.

With the GSX-S1000F ABS, Suzuki changes motorcycling for the better, again.

*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

**The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.

 

Performance Unlimited

4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine

This is the engine designed to own the racetrack. Tuned for the streets. Customised to a rakish roadster bound to become a legend in its own right. The broad range of power and torque is untouchable. It is everything you are looking for on the road. And then some. State-of-the-art technology provides ultimate performance, increasing the pleasure of every ride. Everything to experience. Nothing to stand in your way.

 

Legendary performance tuned for the street

The GSX-S1000FA is powered by a street-tuned version of the four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cc, inline-four engine that became a legend in the 2005 GSX-R1000. The newly honed engine delivers smooth throttle response and immediate, controlled acceleration, so the sport rider experiences adrenaline-rushing performance.

A long-stroke design with a 73.4mm bore and a 59.0mm stroke allows the combustion chambers to be compact. It therefore allows a combination of an optimal compression ratio, a flat-top piston shape, and a broad spread of power throughout the rev range.

Advances inside the engine begin with the pistons. Suzuki used finite-element-analysis techniques to make the pistons light without compromising their rigidity. The benefits include broad torque and quick acceleration.

New cam profiles optimise the valve timing to achieve power characteristics that are ideally suited to city streets and twisty suburban roads. Iridium spark plugs ensure strong sparks for efficient combustion that translates into higher power, linear throttle response, easier engine startup, and stable idling.

Each bore is plated with Suzuki’s own race-proven nickel-phosphorus-silicon-carbide coating, which reduces friction, enhances heat transfer, durability, and ring seal, and is known as Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM).

A newly designed radiator with an efficient round shape helps to keep the engine temperature consistent. Shrouds guide air to the radiator core. A liquid-cooled oil cooler is light and compact. Its small dimensions help to make the bike look neat by creating more room for the exhaust system.


Cutting-edge engine management

An engine control module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has settings that are optimised for sport riding. A key technology under the ECM’s control is an updated version of the downdraft double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system that has always been part of the GSX-R legend. The SDTV helps to ensure efficient combustion and smooth power delivery. Ten-hole fuel injectors optimise fuel atomisation to promote combustion efficiency and limit fuel consumption. The fuel injection works with an O2 feedback system and an intake pressure sensor to further heighten combustion efficiency and limit exhaust emissions. The exhaust system has a 4-2-1 design with equaliser pipes between the 1-and-4 and 2-and-3 header pipes. The system fine-tunes the exhaust pulses for strong low-to-mid-range output. The exhaust chamber after the joint section fits under the engine, so the muffler is minimally sized for a clean, agile look. A catalyser in the exhaust chamber keeps emissions low enough to satisfy the strict Euro 3 regulations. The exhaust pipe incorporates a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system. A servo-actuated butterfly valve opens to a degree calculated from the engine speed, throttle position, and gear position. It controls exhaust pressure waves to enhance combustion at low revs.

2017 Suzuki GSX-S1000F ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine Features
The strong, four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cc inline-four engine is designed to provide smooth throttle response and controlled acceleration.

Long-stroke GSX-R engine design has broad low-to-mid range power and torque that is ideal for street riding.

The profiles of the dual, overhead camshafts were designed to enhance street performance while preserving peak, racetrack-capable power.

Aluminum pistons, engineered with use of FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis, are cast with optimal rigidity and weight.

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.

The EFI system uses Suzuki’s proprietary, SDTV (Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve) throttle bodies where the secondary throttle valves are controlled by a servo motor for smooth power delivery.

Long tip, 10-hole fuel injectors on each 44mm throttle body improves fuel atomization while the automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) improves cold starting and stabilizes the engine idle.

The digital ignition fires iridium type spark plugs that increase spark strength and combustion efficiency, contributing to higher power, more linear throttle response, easier engine start-up, and a more stable idle. These quality components also last longer than conventional spark plugs.

The stainless-steel, 4-2-1 exhaust system helps the engine deliver a strong low-to-mid range punch with an exciting rush to redline.

The Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system-equipped mid-muffler design enhances style and aids in mass centralization for great chassis balance.

The sculpted muffler has a pleasing appearance that’s not common to under-chassis exhausts while creating an exciting, distinctive sound.

Suzuki’s advanced traction control system** lets the rider to control the throttle with more confidence in various riding conditions. As a result, the rider can enjoy sport riding with less anxiety. There are four traction control modes (1, 2, 3, and OFF) that the rider can easily adjust at rest or on-the-fly via a handlebar-mounted control. The difference between the modes are their sensitivity to road conditions.

Mode 1 1 is lowest sensitivity level most suitable for skilled riders or in conditions that have good road surface grip (sport riding on good, smooth roads).

Mode 2 is a moderate sensitivity level that is suitable for most riders or in conditions that have varied road surface grip (city riding, regular road conditions).

Mode 3 is highest sensitivity level suitable for road conditions where the grip may be limited (wet or cold surfaces).

OFF disengages all traction control features.

The sides of the fairing efficiently guide cooling air to the high-capacity curved radiator. Additional heat is removed from the engine via the use of a lightweight and compact liquid-cooled oil cooler (like those used on the GSX-R models).

 

Transmission Features
The race-proven six-speed close-ratio transmission features vertically staggered shafts to reduce overall engine length.

Large diameter, wet multi-plate clutch is derived from a GSX-R1000 design to easily transmit power while the rack and pinion clutch release provides the rider with superb friction-point feel.

The refined shift linkage helps the rider easily and quickly select the best gear for the riding conditions.

The strong, RK-supplied drive chain uses O-rings to preserve internal lubrication so power is transmitted smoothly and quietly.

 

Chassis Features
Styled to complement the rest of the chassis and to house a bright dual headlight, the GSX-S1000F ABS’s full fairing slices through the wind while so the rider benefits from the upright, sporty ergonomics.

Lightweight and compact chassis is engineered to be agile and fun-to-ride for a wide range of riders. This ability starts with the low-mass rigid aluminum main frame coupled with the strong aluminum-alloy swingarm.

The new 43mm inverted KYB forks have adjustable compression and rebound damping, and spring pre-load with a generous 120mm (4.7 in) of front wheel travel.

5 Link-type rear suspension, with arched aluminum swingarm and a single shock absorber that features spring preload that is 7-way adjustable with rebound damping force adjustment.

Dual front brakes with fully-floating 310mm discs and BREMBO monobloc calipers with four 32mm opposed pistons provide strong and consistent stopping power.

The front brakes are complemented by a 240mm rear disc brake with a NISSIN single-piston caliper to help make sure you can have controlled stops.

Both the front and rear brakes can be modulated by a compact Anti-lock Brake System* (ABS) controller to match stopping force to the available traction.

6 Unique to the GSX-S1000 models, the TRP 6-spoke lightweight cast aluminum wheels are shod with Dunlop radial tires (120/70ZR17 front and 180/50ZR17 rear).

7 Matte black aluminum Renthal Fatbar handlebar is standard equipment offering excellent riding ergonomics with great vibration damping.

The reasonable sport riding position is created by a carefully crafted relationship between the Renthall FatBar, footrests and seat.

The low seat height of 815 mm (32 in.) contributes to the sporty, yet upright riding position and aids rider confidence at stops.

 

Electrical Features
8 The GSX-S1000F ABS premiered Suzuki’s Easy-start System that requires just a simple touch of the starter button to fire up the engine (without pulling the clutch lever if the transmission is in neutral).

The dual headlight assembly in the full fairing use a pair of 55W H7 halogen bulbs – one for the low beam, while both illuminate for the high beam. The tail section houses an integrated LED taillight with clear lens.

The lightweight and compact instrument sets uses a LCD display that includes speedometer, tachometer, odometer, dual tripmeters, gear position, coolant temperatures, driving range, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption, traction control, and a clock functions.

The display has an adjustable intensity, white-color backlight for great nighttime visibility and is flanked by LED indicators for the turn signals, high beam, malfunction, traction control, ABS, plus coolant temperature and oil pressure alerts.

 

Additional Features
A variety of Genuine Suzuki Accessories such as a tank bag and taller, touring screen are available, plus a large selection of logo apparel.

12-month unlimited mileage, limited warranty. Coverage can be increased via Suzuki Extended Protection.

*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

**The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
