The redesigned Suzuki GSX-S1000 has become a famous Japanese naked litre-bike. ” The GSX-S1000 is a significant improvement over its predecessor in both style and performance. It is due to Suzuki’s choice of a more contemporary design and aggressive bodywork. With the addition of a high-tech electronics package, performance has improved dramatically.
GSX-S1000 vs GSX-S950
When it comes to Suzuki’s most prominent and deadliest naked streetfighter, the company hasn’t forgotten about its younger customers. They want to get their hands on the GSX-S1000, even if they have a lot of time. The GSX-S950 has a lot in common with the GSX-S1000 style, but it focuses on beginners. The bike’s power output is reduced due to new electronics that change the bike’s performance. The 950 is now available in an A2-compliant variant, which reduces power to a measly 48 horsepower.
In other words, the GSX-S950 has lost 108 horsepower compared to its unrestricted sister. Nonetheless, it presents itself as an excellent starting bike for people intent to retain the bike as their abilities grow. This is all well and good since it may, later on, riders can de-restrict to produce 95 horsepower. It is not quite the 152 horsepower that GSX-S1000 delivers, but still sure to give an exciting ride.
Considering how the limitations may impact engine longevity and dependability is an intriguing thought. Keeping the output of such a large displacement engine at less than one-third of its intended capacity prevents premature wear. If de-restriction is as simple as changing the ECU’s mapping, then the A2-compliant GSX-S950 makes perfect sense for those with the cash. The limited GSX-S950 will set you back a cool USD 11,232 if you start out as a rider.
At this point, it’s worth adding that the GSX-stronger S950’s brother, the GSX-S1000, isn’t the only bike with a restrictor package. Its fundamentals are a lot more budget-focused and straightforward, too. Inverted front forks replace the bike’s former adjustable suspension. Even the rear monoshock is simpler and lacks any change other than spring preload change. Additionally, the top-of-the-line Brembo callipers on 1000 are not there. Tokico stoppers have taken their place. They have the same front and back brake disc diameters.
