    It’s all about legacy – Suzuki just announced details on two additions to its line of motoring excellence. This time the brand is set to give riders an opportunity to unleash the biggest and meanest beast that has been powering one of the most recognizable and renowned Suzuki sports bikes, the GSX­R1000, that has been holding the banner as Suzuki’s top dog sports bike since 2001, and do so without the ails of being on a sports bike. The DNA of a supersport legend comes a pure sport roadster in the new Suzuki GSX­S1000 Carbon Edition and GSX­S1000F Tour Edition.

    These monsters in the streets in the GSX­S1000 and GSX­S1000F are powered by a street­tuned version of the four­stroke, liquid­cooled, DOHC, 999­cubic centimeter, inline-four engine that became a legend in the 2005­2008 GSX­R1000. The newly honed engine promises smooth throttle response and immediate, controlled acceleration all to give the sporty rider an adrenaline­rushing performance. The new bikes sport long­stroke design with a 73.4­millimeter bore and a 59­millimeter stroke that allows the combustion chambers to be compact. It therefore allows a combination of an optimal compression ratio, a flat­top piston shape, and a broad spread of power throughout the rev range. All this power to be controlled by top­of­the­line radial­mount Brembo monobloc caliper brake system as can be found controlling the 2014 GSX­R1000, not to mention Suzuki’s advanced three­mode traction Control system offering different levels of system assistance providing multiple accustomed ride experiences to accommodate a wider range of riders.

    The new Tour Edition of Suzuki’s do­it­all sportsbike, now available, sees the GSX-S1000F gain a 15­liter tank bag and 12­liter tail pack, taller screen, heated grips and a silver graphics kit. Meanwhile, the Carbon Edition GSX­S models are available in both the firm’s signature MotoGP blue that benefits from color­coded Brembo monobloc calipers, eye­catching fluorescent yellow graphics and wheel tape, and a carbon accessory kit. The contrasting red and black color scheme gets the same carbon treatment, but boasts red Brembo calipers, white graphics, and red wheel tape.
