The Suzuki GSX-S1000F will be available in a new Candy Red/Sparkle Black colour scheme from later this month.
The colour scheme is in addition to the existing Metallic Triton Blue and Metallic Matte Grey variants.
The GSX-S1000F has become popular since its launch in Australia last August because of its combination of supersport performance and street riding comfort.
The bike is based around the Suzuki GSX-R1000 “K5” model from 2005 which was well regarded as having one of the best engines in its class at the time.
The engine of the K5 utilized a long-stroke design that provided quick-revving midrange torque, which made it a good choice as the starting point for the GSX-S1000 range.
Suzuki revised the engine with lighter pistons, a drop in the compression ratio, a new cylinder head with revised intake and exhaust ports, and milder cams to give the engine better mid range power.
It also dropped the expensive titanium valves from the GSX-R in favour of steel valves to reduce costs.
The end result is an engine that still gives the excitement that comes with a performance sport bike but is far better suited to real world riding.
Suzuki wrapped the engine in a compact and lightweight frame, and designed the suspension to be direct but plush.
The GSX-S1000F has a three-mode traction control system and uses the same Brembo brake calipers with ABS as the GSX-R1000.
The Suzuki GSX-S1000F is a good choice for someone looking for a bike that is comfortable and practical yet still has plenty of performance and sports bike good looks.
Limited quantities of the new GSX-S1000F will be available, and Suzuki Australia is advising interested customers to pre-order via their local Suzuki dealer.
Recommended retail price remains unchanged at just $17,290 ride away.
