Suzuki GSX-S1000 was last updated in 2015 and for over half a decade the motorcycle was offered with minor changes, but this time around the litre-class naked motorcycle could be entirely revamped
Suzuki Two-wheelers has teased the 2021 GSX-S1000 in a promotional video confirming the comeback of its challenger in the litre-class naked segment. The Suzuki GSX-S1000 will be unveiled on April 26, 2021 and will debut in the international markets first. The naked motorcycle will be launched in India, however, that event is a few months away as Suzuki India will prioritize the launch of the 2021 Hayabusa.
For 2021, the Suzuki GSX-S1000 could get the same chassis and the engine but with minor updates. The expectations have risen with regard to the electronics that the new motorcycle will pack and the aesthetic changes on the exterior. While the engine could stay the same, 999cc in-line four-cylinder, this time it will be a Euro 5 compliant unit, equivalent to BS6 emission norms.
The electronics on offer could be based on a six-axis IMU unit, offering wheelie-control, transaction control, cornering ABS along with a two-way quick-shifter.
The teaser video also gives a glimpse of a new fascia and shows the addition of winglets. The addition of wingles on either side could mean that Suzuki has improved the aero package of the GSX-S1000. That said, an upgraded suspension package could be on offer as well, however, that shall be confirmed by the end of month.
