SUZUKI GSX-S1000 for sale in Glasgow

£6,999

Excellent Tourer, Good details
The GSX-S1000 is powered by a street-tuned version of the four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999cc, inline-four engine that became a legend in the 2005 GSX-R1000.Suzuki designed a new chassis in a compact, lightweight package that makes the GSX-S1000 agile and fun to ride. It’s the naked GSX-R1000 K5 we all hoped it would be. The GSX-S1000 is fast, fun, agile. That iconic long-stroke engine has the K5’s distinctive growl and wide spread of power.The cast aluminium frame is actually lighter than Suzuki’s road-going superbike, but it has a longer wheelbase and lazier steering geometry for stability on the road. The aluminium swingarm is lifted straight from the GSX-R1000. Kerb weight is 207kg and 209kg with ABS. The GSX-S1000 is agile, confidence-inspiring, stable and the Dunlop D214s offers good grip for fast road riding. Forks are 43mm fully adjustable KYB items, but the single shock is adjustable for rebound and preload only.Powered by the now almost mythical long-stroke GSX-R1000 K5-K8 motor, Suzuki has made a host of detail changes to make it even smoother and more tractable, including 3% lighter pistons and rings than the original, re-profiled inlet and exhaust cams, a new airbox, 4-2-1 exhaust, curved radiator and long-nose 10-hole injector nozzles. The motor gurgles and growls through its rev-range, and has a long spread of power and a decent top end hit. But the power delivery is snatchy from form a closed throttle at low speeds.There are lots of nice touches, like the chassis and brakes from the GSX-R1000, traction control and the full LCD dash. The mechanicals are all tried-and-tested so won’t give you a problem
