In the Suzuki family, I would like the big hit. The GSX-R 1000? Lost ! I didn’t say the surface-to-surface missile … So it could only be the GSX-S 1000. With an engine and a part-cycle derived from the famous hypersport, this big streetfighter is slapping the head high. Maybe he lacks a little charisma to win in the lair of big fighters…
The Team Suzuki Special Edition should spark all of this a bit. A particular livery but supported in two colors to please two almost distinct trends. A red version to capture the racing side that boils in every big roadster enthusiast – a blue version to electrify the elegant side capable of appealing to fans of high displacement. Suzuki let go on the stickers but the work does not seem as convincing as a deep exercise on the decoration. Seeing, certainly, but yet light. When it comes to special parts, this GSX-S is not overwhelmed by abundance; but there is still a piece of choice.
In the presence of the Akrapovic titanium silencer with carbon end cap. Nobler, more vocal than the original element, it also allows 1200 grams to be removed from the beast. There is also an aluminum license plate holder in the stern.
But Hamamatsu does not deliver just a motorcycle stitched in red or blue. Each receives a numbered plate on the tank.
The monetary supplement over the standard GSX-S 1000 is reasonable. The tariff advantage, compared to the elements taken separately, amounts to more than 700 euros.
Here is something to be a little more noticed on the handlebars of this explosive roadster, shamelessly sending 150 horsepower and almost 11 mkg in the arms of the crew. Correctly provided with electronics, nothing more, the GSX-S maousse is satisfied with a traction control and an ABS. Good enough for everyday and sports use. The most rare and / or the most technological will regret the absence of driving modes, shifter, ABS cornering and TFT screen. For the next version? … In the meantime, the special editions (Evo, Team Suzuki, Yoshimura, Titanium …) are in charge of arousing interest.
