Suzuki is one of the most recognizable motorcycle brands across the globe. It is for this reason that whenever the Japanese bike manufacturer announces something new, the market must be keen to know what it is.
Finally, after a long wait, Suzuki has announced two new special edition bike models; the GSX-S1000 Carbon and the GSX-S1000F Tour.The long wait is finally over!
Just the other day in March, the UK branch of the Japanese firm launched the GSX-S1000 and the GSX-S1000F Yoshimura, another pair of special edition superbikes. And, only five months later, Suzuki are at it again; this time round with the GSX-S1000 Carbon Edition and the GSX-S1000F Tour Edition. Both special edition versions of the latest release are available with the parent company's signature MotoGP-blue as well as red-&-black colors.
With a prominent blue body color, the GSX-S1000 Carbon Edition also comes with a Brembo mono-bloc calipers color-coding, fluorescent yellow graphics, and a wheel tape. It also has a carbon accessory kit that comes with a rear hugger, a crankcase cover, a clutch cover as well asan alternator cover. On the other hand, the red-&-black version is equipped with the carbon kit, the red Brembo calipers, as well as white graphics and a red wheel tape. All this for only £9,499 (or £9,999 with ABS). Can you believe it?
As for the GSX-S1000F Tour Edition, this one is available in blue and red/black colors. Other accessories include a 15-litre tankbag, a 12-litre tailpack, heated grips, a silver graphics kit and a much taller windscreen. Again, this model is a good bargain at only £10,299 in price.
For both versions of the GSX-S1000 model, you get a superbike that is aggressive in styling. And I didn’t mention that both are powered by the iconic engine from the GSX-R1000 K5!If you are looking for a daily sports bike, then the GSX-S1000F is your machine.
Finally, for now, enjoy the most comfortable ride with your GSX-S1000 model as we wait for the upcoming GSX-R1000 next year. Watch out for its unveiling at the EICMA later in the year.
