Suzuki GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F power output revealed

Suzuki had showcased the new Suzuki GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F at the 2014 INTERMOT motorcycle show in Germany but hadn’t revealed the power output for the above two bikes. Power figures for both the motorcycles have been leaked on the internet and the new Suzuki GSX-S1000F and GSX-S1000’s motor churns out 146PS of peak power at 9,500rpm. Powering both the motorcycles is the same inline-four cylinder engine from the 2008 Suzuki GSX-R1000 but it has been detuned to better suit the streetbike dynamics of both the motorcycles.
With the introduction of two motorcycles, Suzuki fills out the void that has been long existent in their 1000cc line up since its Japanese rivals already had offerings in both the streetbike and sport-touring segment. The power output of 146PS makes the Suzuki GSX-S1000 the second most powerful litre-class Japanese streetbike behind the Yamaha FZ1. Both the motorcycles get loaded with a three-way selectable traction control system. It also gets KYB shocks that come with adjustable preload and rebound making it more fitting for street use. Braking duties are performed by Brembo monoblock callipers and ABS is standard

While success of both these motorcycles will depend a lot on how Suzuki prices, the fact that the Japanese motorcycle maker is on a model offensive is clear, not just in the international market but also in India mind you. With the GSX-R1000 already on sale in India, we can expect both these motorcycles to come to Indian shores in 2015 too.
