Now where did you get that idea from? Suzuki have always called it a Sports Bike and said it was to compete with the Z1000.I thought the GSX S1000 was a touring bike. Is this a case of "naked" envy over us "F" guys? lol
I was under the impression that the GSXS is a "naked sports" bike, but I will be doing some touring on mine in the summer, the furthest I've ridden so far on it in one hit, just fuel stops, is 400miles in 5hours, and had a smile on my face every yard of itI thought the GSX S1000 was a touring bike.

I believe they added the fairing at the last minute to compete with the Z1000SX which accounts for the less than perfect design and awkward fitment. Not just my opinion by the way, I've seen it said a few times elsewhere in official reviews.
I'm probably stirring up a Hornets nest here (again) but I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms and am bored to tears looking at the wind and rain.
My very best to all, irrespective of what you ride.
You gotta be a young guy....It's too small and light to be a touring bike, albeit I find mine very comfortable. Heck, a few years back I rode my Aprilia Tuono 2,500 miles to Asheville NC and back to Lauderdale with a group of GoldWings, Indians and Harleys. I was totally comfortable and this bike is exactly the same, even smoother.
It's all in what you train your body to do. The human body can be conditioned to do just about anything, to endure just about anything. With the proper training our bodies can handle a 2000 mile ride on a uni-cycle in complete comfort.
