Suzuki has announced two new special editions, with a GSX-S1000 Carbon Edition and GSX-S1000F Tour Edition for the UK. Both the GSX-S1000 Carbon Edition and GSX-S1000F Tour Edition are available from authorised Suzuki dealerships from August. The GSX-S1000 Carbon Edition comes with an RRP of £9,499 (INR 8.37 lakh), or £9,999 (INR 8.81) with ABS. The Tour Edition GSX-S1000F retails for £10,299 (INR9.08 lakh). There are no reports about these special edition Suzuki motorcycles making it to Indian shores.
The Carbon Edition GSX-S models are available in both the firm’s signature MotoGP blue and the contrasting red and black colour scheme. The blue variant benefits from colour-coded Brembo monobloc calipers, eye-catching fluorescent yellow graphics and wheel tape, and a carbon accessory kit comprising of rear hugger, crankcase cover, clutch cover, and alternator cover. The red and black model gets the same carbon treatment, but boasts red Brembo calipers, white graphics, and red wheel tape.
A new Tour Edition of Suzuki’s do-it-all sportsbike is also now available, and sees the GSX-S1000F gain a 15 litre tank bag and 12 litre tail pack, taller screen, heated grips, and a silver graphics kit. The Tour Edition GSX-S1000F can be had in both blue or red and black.
Suzuki GB marketing manager, Rob Cooper, said that the GSX-S1000 already ticks plenty of boxes, thanks to its aggressive styling and is powered by the engine from the iconic GSX-R1000 K5. The new special editions will further stand out from the crowd, with their attention-grabbing graphics and coloured Brembo calipers. The GSX-S1000F, he further added, is the everyday sportsbike, with a comfortable riding position and weather protection, while retaining it’s GSX-R character. The Tour Edition means that customers that are considering using it for that purpose, can do so with even more comfort and practicality.
