THE PURE SPORT ROADSTER
From the DNA of a supersport legend comes the pure sport roadster. The GSX-S1000Y. A motorcycle built for real-world excitement. Inheriting the genuine engine and main components of the GSX-R1000, this thrilling
machine puts the feel of world-beating performance in your hands.Take it to the streets. Take it on the highway and get comfortable stretching every ride into a journey.
Take control on the pure sport
There are several versions of the GSX-S1000, and the GSX-S1000Y is the loudest of them all. Stand out from the crowd with striking bright red wheels, graphics and lower belly pan. This distinctive model combines these red highlights
with a fusion of black and white body panels and graphics to create this stunning overall look. Finishing off the looks of the GSX-S1000Y are anodised black front fork stantions and a blacked out silencer and heatshield.
OWN THE STREETS
Free to roam in its natural habitat, the GSX-S1000Y gives street
performance a sharper edge. Smooth, controlled handling.
This is the engine designed to own the racetrack. Tuned for the streets. Customized to a rakish roadster bound to become a legend in its own right. The broad range of power and torque is untouchable. It is everything you are
looking for on the road. And then some. State-of-the-art technology provides ultimate efficiency, increasing the pleasure of every run. Everything to experience. Nothing to stand in your way.
Legendary performance tuned for the street
The GSX-S1000Y is powered by a street-tuned version of the four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cm3 , inline-four engine that became a legend in the 2005–2008 GSX-R1000. The newly honed engine delivers smooth throttle response and
immediate, controlled acceleration, so the sport rider experiences adrenaline-rushing performance.
A long-stroke design with a 73.4mm bore and a 59.0mm stroke allows the combustion chambers to be compact. It therefore allows
a combination of an optimal compression ratio, a flat-top piston shape, and a broad spread of power throughout the rev range.
Advances inside the engine begin with the pistons. Suzuki used finite-element-analysis techniques
to make the pistons light without compromising their rigidity. The benefits include broad torque and quick acceleration.
New cam profiles optimize the valve timing to achieve power characteristics that are ideally suited to
city streets and twisty suburban roads. Iridium spark plugs ensure strong sparks for efficient combustion that translates into higher power, linear throttle response, easier engine startup, and stable idling.
Each bore is plated
with Suzuki’s own race-proven nickel-phosphorus-silicon-carbide coating, which reduces friction, enhances heat transfer, durability, and ring seal, and is known as Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM).
A newly designed
radiator with an efficient round shape helps to keep the engine temperature consistent. Shrouds guide air to the radiator core. A liquid-cooled oil cooler is light and compact. Its small dimensions help to make the bike look neat
by creating more room for the exhaust system.
Cutting-edge engine management
An engine control module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has settings that are optimized for sport riding. A key technology under the ECM’s control is an updated version of the downdraft double-barrel Suzuki Dual
Throttle Valve (SDTV) system that has always been part of the GSX-R legend. The SDTV helps to ensure efficient combustion and smooth power delivery. Ten-hole fuel injectors optimize fuel atomization to promote combustion efficiency
and limit fuel consumption. The fuel injection works with an O2 feedback system and an intake pressure sensor to further heighten combustion efficiency and limit exhaust emissions. The exhaust system has a 4-2-1 design with equalizer
pipes between the 1-and-4 and 2-and-3 header pipes. The system fine-tunes the exhaust pulses for strong low-to-mid-range output. The exhaust chamber after the joint section fits under the engine, so the muffler is minimally sized
for a clean, agile look. A catalyzer in the exhaust chamber keeps emissions low enough to satisfy the strict Euro 3 regulations. The exhaust pipe incorporates a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system. A servo-actuated butterfly valve
opens to a degree calculated from the engine speed, throttle position, and gear position. It controls exhaust pressure waves to enhance combustion at low revs.
Three-mode traction control system
Suzuki’s advanced traction control system lets the rider control the throttle with more confidence in diverse conditions, so it makes sport riding more enjoyable and less tiring. The system checks the front and rear wheel speeds, the
throttle position sensor, the crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor 250 times a second. It quickly reduces engine output by effecting control over the ignition timing whenever it detects wheelspin. The system’s control
over engine output feels so smooth and natural, it does not detract from riding pleasure. The rider can set the system to any of three modes or turn it off. The modes differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode one is for sport riding
with minimal intervention from the system. Mode three gives maximal traction control for riding in poor conditions. Mode two offers a balance that is ideal for typical road conditions.
Note: The traction control system is not
a substitute for the rider’s throttle control under any conditions. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider is entering a turn and or braking. Also, it cannot prevent the front wheel from losing
A chassis engineered for real-world enjoyment
Suzuki designed a new chassis in a compact, lightweight package that makes the GSX-S1000Y agile and fun to ride. Every aspect of the chassis reflects a focus on great handling and control in real-world conditions from city streets
to twisty mountain roads.
The main frame helps to ensure nimble handling and great roadholding. The main tubes are straight from the steering head to the swingarm pivot. Their shape is ideal for achieving high rigidity and
low weight. Suzuki used finite-element-analysis techniques to make the frame even lighter than that of the current GSX-R1000.
The sturdy aluminum-alloy swingarm comes straight from the current GSX-R1000. It is ruggedly braced
and helps to ensure great roadholding together with superbike looks.
Suzuki optimized the riding position for greater comfort and slimmed down the knee-grip area for relaxing ergonomics. The slim bodywork combines with the
low seat (815mm from the ground) to help the rider put his feet down easily.
Newly specified 43mm KYB inverted front forks give a ride that is sporty yet plush. They have fully adjustable damping, rebound, compression and spring
The cast-aluminum wheels have a brand-new lightweight, six-spoke design that gives a combination of nimble handling and sporty looks. Dunlop radial tyres (120/70ZR17 at the front; 190/50ZR17 at the rear) provide great
grip for sport riding.
