Suzuki GSX-S 1000 Test, It is awesome

Suzuki GSX-S 1000 Test, It is awesome

At the fair in Cologne in 2014, Suzuki would not launch GSR 1000, but a GSX-S 1000 to 2015. The roadster was expected for years is of course driven by the engine of the famous and unavoidable GSX-R 1000 model 2005. Suzuki applies the same recipe as its competitors, and removes superfluous to pistarde to create a sporty roadster. This Suzuki GSX-S 1000 therefore no exception to the rule. She arrives late, however, displays some arguments to make.

A neutral style and not Manga said Suzuki
The designer explained to the press conference not wanting manga style. In this light, this drawing mat is a success. Even if the rounded lines of the rear of the machine are no longer in tune with the times, the relatively short stern highlights the picked side of this GSX-S. Fire LED brings a touch of modernity. These curves are particularly present in the reservoir, whose shapes leave room for the legs. It is not too wide and fits perfectly between the knees. Although his pencil stroke is not very original, ergonomic design is successful.

The front has been the object of attention with Led position lights, under the lighthouse, which according to the Japanese brand recall mandibles. With the gills of Immersion tank, these elements provide some visual aggressiveness to the machine. We can add the engine spoiler that emphasizes the mechanical completion of the GSX-R.

The driver is particularly welcomed
Despite the somewhat sporty motorcycle, the saddle is comfortable enough in the category, the wide handlebars and footrests not too high: it is installed. Everything falls perfectly to hand. The traction control is set from a button on the left handlebar, easily wheelchair even with thick gloves.

The passenger is not housed in the same boat, and probably do not share the same opinion on the GSXS. His seat is small and must be content with small recesses formed in the back cover to continue. His post will serve fender rainy days, but it is also the case with a lot of competitors. The space under the seat is of course in line with the small dimensions of the stern.

Before our eyes, the digital dashboard displays everything you need: engaged, hour meter and average consumption (7 l / 100 km on the test). It scrolls trips on the dashboard with the "Mode" control on the left handlebar, the same one that modifies the level of intervention of the traction control, recalled on the right side of the screen. Readability is very correct.

This is the heart of the GSX-R that drives the GSX-S
A simple flick awakens the 4-cylinder. Note that this engine is not from the last version of the "Gex" but the GSX-R produced between 2005 and 2008. This engine still develops 145 horsepower at 10,000 rev / min and 106 Nm 500 r / min less, almost at the top of the tachometer. The sound is very neat, especially by a valve in the exhaust, beautifully finished.

This block is known but still reserve some surprises. He takes down the towers as a 4-legged 1000 cm3 respectable, but one can not escape the jolts to the overshoot. A shame as take a light throttle is suddenly not easy. And it is not the fault of an electronic accelerator "ride by wire" or even driving modes ... for the simple reason that there is none here. We feel some vibrations around 6000 rev / min at steady state, but it is anyway beyond we find the quintessence of this boiler. It's from 7000 rev / min it is fully expressed. It is therefore not hesitate not to seek high revs to enjoy the thrills he knows distill. He is not stingy with the approach of the maximum power as well enjoy it.

To tame the burden of these standards, the GSX-S demonstrated an excellent grip whatever the pace adopted. She showed a good discipline and never reserve surprises. Very stable cornering, even at high speed past, she knows how to remain manageable in the tortuous. To maintain a good pace, advantage of the extension of the 4-cylinder engine that avoids too play with the gearbox, especially mine was quite firm. This Suzuki is not tiring driving through a perfect balance, even when accelerates and brakes continuously strong.

The reactions of the ABS are more mixed depending on driving phases. It is thus sensitive to defects of the road under hard braking. We are now accustomed to enjoy a finer and less intrusive sensitivity. It's frustrating because the bike remains manageable in decision brakes. The traction is the reverse, that is to say, it is discreet and relevant. It is difficult to feel his intervention in modes 2 and 3 without throwing an eye witness of the dashboard. We say just occasionally something happens. It has proved very effective during this long day of running under a heavy rain most of the time.

Final
For years, competitors have placed their pawns in the roadster segment in 1000 and switched to other fights, but GSX- S 1000 is not uninteresting either. She first engine from a famous sport. If it is not the most powerful and delivers a few jolts in the overshoot, fans of the GSX-R will be happy to meet him at the heart of this dynamic roadster. Then this GSX-S has a very neutral behavior which is based on a successful frame. Advantage is fully in all situations without fear. It is true that the ABS would benefit from being less sensitive but this does not disappoint Suzuki face competition in place. The GSX-S is not necessarily best placed in price, especially when considering the power on paper and electronic equipment available. Anyway, this Suz is very homogeneous and offers great versatility for the category. It's nice, at least solo. The GSX-S 1000 is available with (12 499 euros) and without ABS (11 999 euros) before it is required next year.
