 Suzuki GSX-S1000: what to expect? 

While the video doesn't reveal the new Suzuki GSX-S1000 in its entirety, we can make out a few interesting details about the motorcycle. 

To begin with, the new Suzuki GSX-S1000 will feature fresh styling, evident in the new vertically stacked headlamp, a large fuel tank, and aerodynamic winglets that are slowly becoming the norm these days. We expect the tail section to feature a fresh design as well, and it'll be interesting to see what Suzuki will come up with when the bike is revealed on April 26, 2021.

Suzuki GSX-S1000: chassis, engine and electronics 

Suzuki has been quite tight-lipped about the new GSX-S1000, however, expect the new motorcycle to feature significant updates over the outgoing model.

The motorcycle is expected to be powered by the same 999cc, inline-four engine that's present in the current model. Whether Suzuki has managed to squeeze more power and torque than the current engine's 145hp/106Nm output remains to be seen. The engine will be paired to a 6-speed gearbox and we expect to see an up/down quickshifter as well. Speaking of electronics, the new GSX-S1000 may also feature IMU-assisted traction control, cornering ABS and other modern-day electronic aids. These should be accessible via a new TFT display, again in keeping with the times.

Suzuki GSX-S1000: price and availability 

The new GSX-S1000 is expected to cost more than the Rs 12.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) asking price of the previous model. It is expected to go on sale in India shortly after its launch in international markets.
