The Suzuki GSX-S1000 has finally been busted! A spyphoto from United States has captured the much-awaited super-naked bike in full monty, while a video shoot for the bike’s commercial ad was underway.
The story about a super-naked from the stables of Suzuki dates way back. It began with some photos circulating the internet which suggested that Suzuki was working on a prototype of a naked bike. That bike was to be powered by the same engine used on Suzuki’s race-bred GSX-R1000, albeit in a lesser state of tune. Then, a German tabloid came up with a speculative rendering of Suzuki’s upcoming super naked. It also suggested that the engine will be a detuned version of the one powering the GSX-R1000.
As the netizens went into a frenzy over the upcoming super-naked, various names were concocted. The most popular one stuck around – the Suzuki GSR1000.
However, the latest spyphoto breaks that misconception. On the tank scoop, one can clearly notice the emblem reading Suzuki GSX-S1000. Other details visible from the photo are the Brembo brakes equipped with ABS. The design language features heavy kickbacks to Suzuki’s existing GSR750. Styling is minimalistic but assertive, and the bike commands an incredible road presence. The menacing front end is well-complemented by the presence of sculpted body panels.
It is expected that the Suzuki GSX-S1000 will carry the same powerplant being used on the GSX-R1000. The 999 cc inline-four engine whips up 182 horsepower in the race-bred state of tune. On the upcoming super naked, we expect it to sacrifice few horses and gain plenty more mid-range torque in the bargain.
The Suzuki GSX-S1000 will join a tribe of naked bikes that are bred from full-faired, racier brethren. Notable examples include the BMW S1000R, Honda CB1000R, Kawasaki Z1000 and the Aprilia Tuono V4. There’s a very fat probability that this super-naked from Suzuki will break cover at the INTERMOT show scheduled to be held this October in Cologne, Germany. If not, then watch out for this bike at the EICMA Show in Milan this November.
