As much as the GSX-R1000 owns the racetrack, the Suzuki GSX-S1000FZ owns the road. This tour-ready sportbike carries Suzuki engine performance to the street, with technology and components packaged into a chassis designed for all-day riding comfort.
The 2019 GSX-S1000FZ is powered by a 999cc inline four-cylinder powerplant with a new throttle control mechanism that helps control torque-rich power that's ideal for street riding. It's no surprise that this powerhouse is based on the legendary long-stroke GSX-R1000 engine, which is known for making big power through the low- and mid-range to deliver street-dominating performance.
Equipped with a powerful engine, Suzuki's Advanced Traction Control System*, a balanced KYB suspension, plus ABS-equipped** Brembo and Nissin brakes, the GSX-S1000FZ is a street bike packed with some serious performance. Top that performance off with a new, blacked out body treatment on a wind-cheating full fairing and you have a touring-ready sportbike ready for the open road or corner carving.
*The Traction Control System is not suitable for the rider's throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
**Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
