2023 Suzuki GSX-S1000 comes with a new shade of Black that joins the existing MotoGP based colour scheme.. Nothing else changed…
So, alongside unveiling the 2023 version of their V-Strom 650 ADV variants and GSX-R1000R flagship supersport model, Suzuki have also unveiled their flagship naked model globally – 2023 Suzuki GSX-S1000.
For the 2023 iterations, The GSX-S1000 naked has received no change in its overall design. It continues to sport its iconic aggressive styling that consists of a vertically-stacked LED headlight unit, body-coloured headlight cowl and a pair of MotoGP-inspired winglets protruding from the radiator shrouds. It also retains a muscular fuel tank, split seat arrangement and a sharp-looking short-length exhaust canister.
Visually, the new iteration gets a new paint scheme called – Glass Sparkle Black. The iconic MotoGP bike-inspired Metallic Triton Blue colour option is still being offered on the flagship naked.
The Suzuki’s flagship naked is built around an Aluminium Twin-Spar Frame and a unique superbike-braced swingarm. Other hardware componentry includes a fully-adjustable USD KYB front fork and rear monoshock setup, twin-discs with Brembo callipers at the front, a single-rotor with Nissin calliper at the rear, and a cast-aluminium handlebar.
Still continuing its popular engine, the 2023 GSX-S1000 has the 999 cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor at its heart. The electronics suite includes ride-by-wire throttle, Suzuki Clutch Assist System, ABS, three ride modes, a 5-level traction control system, and a Bidirectional Quickshifter.
Finally, the Indian launch details of the 2023 Suzuki GSX-S1000 are not officially launched by Suzuki, and it is unlikely to make it to our shores in the near future.
