Will there be a 2017 GSX S1000? I haven't seen any press about the 2017 model yet. Is this the end of the GSXS?

Man, I really doubt it. With the MT-10 out (FZ-10 coming to the states in '17), it seems like the upright superbike are finding a niche in the market.

Better not...I can't stand the look of that FZ-10!

That bike does look a little off, but alot of the newer bikes have weird cosmetics now.

Is it coincidental that the major parts manufacturers are not making their usual FULL line of aftermarket parts for our bike, and that we aren't hearing about the 2017 the GSX S1000?

The 2016 GSX R1000 already has a full exhaust, and other mods, for sale by most major aftrtmarket manufacturers.

Woohoo! We'll have an instant classic. In years to come we can enter the all-Japanese class and win best in show. Quail Run will send us invites to come and compete. And then when we go and take a lap at Laguna Seca, we can blow all other bikes into the weeds. Yeah baby!

Why would they spend millions on research, design and development on a brand new model and drop it after only one year? Is there much information on the 2017 versions of their other bikes?

The only 2017 model on Suzuki's web site is the new SV-650.
I agree it's only early days and the bike may just continue on unchanged as many bikes do with a 2017 stamp

can anyone smell "TROLL" ?


I'm not a TROLL, Mythic! That's f'd up! You are wrong.


Don't associate me with, or being, a TROLL ever again!


Regarding your last defamatory comments towards me... YOU could be construed as being a TROLL.


I take my contributions\posts to this site seriously and I will not tolerate f'd up comments towards me.


This site has a great reputation with many good members with informative posts. GSXS1000.org has made a significant and positive impact on this motorcycle community. I'm sure other users work proactively to maintain the integrity of this site so it will continue many years into the future.


So Mythic... check yourself and your comments before posting another defamatory comments to one of my topics or anywhere on this site.


Keep this site clean of the "TRASH" so this site can continue to grow and help other members.

The question that has to be asked regarding the future of the GSX S1000A/F is "does the motorcycle sell?" If it doesn't sell, it will be discontinued. It's my understanding that R&D costs of a typical motorcycle would result in giving it a chance in the market place for at least two years. It has been in the hands of the public for less than a year now and was marketed in Europe and some places other than the U.S. as a 2015 model. It was made available in the U.S. in October of 2015 but was marketed as a 2016 model. IMHO Suzuki will keep the bike on the market for a minimum of two years before deciding on it's future. I suspect that it will eventually be labeled as a 2017 model but will remain unchanged except for minor unseen modifications that occur as the manufacturing process evolves.

In 1992 I purchased a new Suzuki GSX 1100G. It was introduced in 1991. It was in production for two calendar years. It didn't sell well enough and production ceased.

I don't have any sales stats in my hands but the local dealership told me it wasn't doing well in my area. In the seven months that I've had mine, I've only seen one other one and that was at a track day event.

Personally, I believe the the bike will be a survivor. I would like to know if forum members are seeing any GSX S1000A/F's around.

That would be a good poll question. I have not yet seen another one on the road. I also ride a DL650 V-Strom, a very popular bike that's been around for a decade or more and still only see one once every two weeks or so.

Here in the states, every other bike is a 1000-lb, 80hp Hardley. Don't get me started.

Do you guys want them to keep making it for a long time, or not?

I kind of like the idea of having a unique bike so the fewer other people that have it the better. But on the other hand if it becomes a more popular bike then we will have more aftermarket parts for it.

I have never passed another one on the road yet, faired or naked.

When I bought mine the salesman told me they were selling really well but I have no idea if that was true or if it was part of his strategy to try to convince me to buy it.

Common also means cheaper and more available replacement parts when it's older.

Same here, couple dealers said selling well but I have not come across a naked nor faired one in my travels. I have to say I get many questions and compliments from other riders when riding about. I hope it is popular... as others said, means more aftermarket parts and longer OEM parts support.

:) I've see a couple out and about:)
Both a lot cleaner than mine and one guy was still running his in ( or at least I hope he was) or a member of the Fly Preservation Squad.

I think they will last a long time. Suzuki has found a good market, they just have to keep the spec sheet interesting enough to get people on them. Once ridden they will sell themselves>:D

P.S. What's a Troll? and why does it make folk so touchy being called one?

I saw 2 out on my travels on Sunday, 1 with clothes and 1 without, which is a better statistic than when I had my Tuono v4. I could count on 2 fingers the amount I saw in a year. 😊

Haven't seen the blues because they are but a blur and disappear into the color or the sky.
