BOTH THE SUZUKI GSX-S1000 CARBON EDITION AND THE SUZUKI GSX-S1000F TOUR EDITION GET SOME SPECIAL FEATURES AND GRAPHICAL MODIFICATIONS.

Japanese auto giant Suzuki has introduced special editions of the GSX-S1000 and the GSX-S1000F. The naked Suzuki GSX-S1000 Carbon Edition is available in two colour schemes and gets carbon covers for the rear hugger, crankcase, clutch, and alternator, along with matching coloured Brembo monoblock brake callipers. The bike also gets fluorescent yellow graphics and rim tape for the signature MotoGP Blue colour scheme, while the Red and Black scheme gets them in white.

The Suzuki GSX-S1000F Tour Edition is also available in both of the colour options with silver graphics. Other additions to the special edition are a taller windscreen, 15-litre tank bag and a 12-litre tail pack for a better touring experience.

Elaborating on the special edition bikes, Rob Cooper, Suzuki GB marketing manager, said, "The GSX-S1000 is a super-naked that already ticks plenty of boxes, thanks to its aggressive styling and the fact it’s powered by the engine from the iconic GSX-R1000 K5. The new special editions will further stand out from the crowd, with their attention-grabbing graphics and coloured Brembo callipers. The GSX-S1000F is the everyday sportbike, with a comfortable riding position and weather protection, while retaining it’s GSX-R character. However, we are seeing that a lot of customers are using theirs above and beyond a weekend blast, and are often journeying further afield. The Tour Edition means that customers that are considering using it for that purpose, can do so with even more comfort and practicality.”

Powering both the bikes is the same 999cc inline-four engine that powers the legendary GSX-R1000. However, the motor has been tuned to a slightly relaxed mode, making 145PS of power at 10,000rpm and a peak torque of 106Nm at 9,500rpm. The kerb weight for the naked version is 209kg (with ABS), while the faired version tips the scales at 214kg.

Nah, the extra graphics looks very ordinary and a couple of covers doesn't wow me. Give me a factory quick shifter and exhaust options, as a starting point, and then I'm interested.
ha ha , got your point ... + slipper clutch too

For me, yip better rear shock and a proper radial master cylinder from say GSXR 750/1000, gives the brakes more of a bite, sorry don't get the quick shifter thing for road riding, on the track I can understand it 0.100 makes a difference, but on the road ?? But that's just me.

I was so annoyed when I saw this ! I was pretty much 50/50 between a GSX S1000F and a Z1000SX when I purchased. Loved the engine on the Suzuki too much to go for the Kwak, but was a tiny bit sad not to have factory hard luggage (though found it stupid that no factory panniers AND top box were available on the Z1000SX - you have to choose between one or the other).

Anyway needless to say I'm relieved to see it's just a couple of bits of semi-hard luggage and a new screen (which I've already replaced anyway), plus some decals which I find pretty ugly anyway.

Panic over. :)

Yeah, not feeling any of the graphics set ups at all. If they really want to do something it should be something like change the tank to red, and make the plastic bit carbon(I'm looking at doing that). And possibly the black pieces in the tailpiece to be carbon as well. Love the bike, but Suzuki did lose imagination when it comes to graphics etc. And they could add LED indicators and headlights etc as well.

Bike new out the door can be achieved under 11k. So consider this a 13k bike. Where Suzuki gives you 2k to play with. Power commander. Full exhaust. Rear shock. Slider and a few other things and this bike is a monster and puts the special edition to shame.

Not thrilled with the new "cosmetic" upgrades. Suzuki should of stepped up and really improved the GSX-S1000.


More HP, resolve the touchy throttle issue, a real wind screen, and maybe add a new features like perhaps the "Launch control or Automatic quick shifter" like the 2017 GSXR1000.


Suzuki can keep the cosmetic upgrades, because to me... they are NOT upgrades at all.


We can all agree there are a few real upgrades Suzuki should of done to the 2017 GSX-S1000.


At least they kept our bike going another year.
