Suzuki has revealed the new 2021 GSX-S950 for the global markets. It is a smaller iteration of the new GSX-S1000 litre-class motorcycle which was revealed earlier this year. It has been purpose-built to suit A2-license restrictions in the European market.

At the heart of the new GSX-S950 sits the same 999cc, inline-four cylinder engine as found on its bigger sibling. The motor has been detuned to produce 47bhp for A2 license holders, while the de-restricted version is rated for 95 bhp. For the record, the same 999 cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC motor on the bigger GSX-S1000 manages to churn out a greater 150 bhp of maximum power at 11,000 rpm against the 145 bhp on the older model.

Apart from the detuned powertrain, the motorcycle also receives downgraded non-adjustable KYB front forks. The previously found Brembo brakes have also been replaced with cost-effective Tokico units. Part of the kit that's carried over includes the Dunlop Sportmax tyres, ride-by-wire, traction control, and low RPM assist functions. It will also benefit from the same superbike-derived swingarm, rear-shock and twin-spar aluminium frame for a distinctly similar road performance as the bigger flagship super naked model.
