Any Guesses for 2019 models?

Any changes besides color for next year?

What would you like to see? I would love to see a model with hydraulic clutch and quick shifter.

There were graphics of a Katana-style GSX-S1000. That would be a killer bike,a go-to solution in case my naked would ever bite the dust.

As for mechanical changes, I'm with you on the quickshifter and the clutch (lighter operation please, I do ride in the city a lot). Otherwise the bike is amazing as it is.

The 17/18 bike got the new slipper clutch, so it should have got softer compression springs compared to the earlier ones. So you have an earlier one ?
Suzuki IMHO will no nothing more to the GSXS1K as it hardly has been a great sales success compared to the Opposition. It will get colour and graphic updates till they drop it when the next emissions arrive.
By then it will be around a 10 years old design. It was an old design held over from the Great Financial Meltdown of 2008, given the minimum to get it compliant with Euro 3 (then 4) in 2014.
There are better bikes to come, there always are.

they made engine changes (vent holes) only 2-3 years into the model and added a slipper so dont see why other small tweaks are out of the question. The ECU already supports quickshifter in software so would be very little effort for them to add as an option...may already be planned and not implemented.

There are some rumors the next gsxs1000 will be the next katana....employing a similar strategy as kawai and their 900. One bike configured in several slightly different ways and skins.

The feature I would really like to have control over is adjustable engine breaking....May be a must have on my next bike.

new honda cb1000r, (hondas new competitor to this bike), slightly retro and comes with quickshifter and engine break adjust. Katana styling would answer the retro aspect.

Probably just new colors for 2019. I can see it getting some minor tweaks but I doubt it'll get anything major.

I don't see the point of a slipper clutch on a bike that can do over 100 km/h in 1st gear, at least not off the track. I mean if you're dumb enough to shift into 1st at 150, then you pretty much deserve to wipe out.

I like the GSXS's current role as a simple no-frills sport bike. That's why I bought it instead of the S1000R or the Tuono. Those features like a quick shifter and what not are really only needed on the track, and if you race on the track why wouldn't you just buy a GSXR? If ergonomics is an issue, you can add riser bars to the gixxer.

Cruise control... I don't know why it isn't there by default in almost all motorbikes already...

throttlemeister is a nice alternative. ive only used it a few times, for like hour long trips here and there, but it works nicely and looks nice to boot. They are weighted too so they reduce vibrations. I got standard sized ones on my gsxs, but you can get extra heavy ones and reduce it further. Yeah they are like 120 dollars I think, but worth it. When you get that cramp it helps a lot. I had them put blue tape instead of red on my last 2 bikes, (gsxr 750 and gsxs1000) both have these in black matte finish with blue tape insert.

mine is same as this, but with blue tape instead of red. can post pics if someone ask me to

this is how they work, so smooth. this is the longer version on bike.

Ok so engine braking, is it possible to do some mods on the bike to decrease engine breaking, if so what can be done?

engine braking can be completely removed with ECU flash among other benefits. Personally used this guy and several others did. Fixed fueling, fuel cut, among other features. (on very bottom of page)
