UPDATE: Suzuki Motor of America has confirmed the GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F are coming to the U.S. as early-release 2016 models.

While we’ve known for months that Suzuki was working on the GSX-S1000 naked streetfighter, the Japanese manufacturer still managed to surprise us with a faired version called the GSX-S1000F.

Discuss this at our Suzuki GSX-S1000 Forum.

Unveiled at Intermot, the GSX-S1000F shares the same engine as the naked bike, a refreshed version of the 2005-2008 GSX-1000R powerplant. The newly-developed frame, KYB fork and Brembo brakes are also the same as on the GSX-S1000, as well as the three-mode traction control system.


The F sports a somewhat avian-looking fairing, with forward-leaning side panels and a sharp nose. We look forward to seeing how the GSX-S1000F fares against competitors such as the Kawasaki Ninja 1000.

Suzuki will produce the GSX-S1000F in three color options: Metallic Triton Blue, Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Daring Red, and Metallic Mat Fibroin Gray.

    This is what I believe I need! The GSX-R’s are too uncomfortable! Also, the police here are Nazi like, and find 75 mph to be outrageously fast. Something that I can still have fun on but a bit more laid back would be nice!

    I really like this bike, especially in that blue. If Suzuki comes out with some color matched panniers and prices it well, it’ll be hard for me to resist trading my Tiger 800 for one. I also like the new BMW R1200RS, but I’m betting this Suzuki will tick all the same boxes for half the money, and be lighter and cheaper to run.
