The Japanese automobile giant has been tight-lipped about the new GSX-S1000 so far. It is expected to get a host of features. However, we have to wait a few more days to learn more about them.
Speaking about the powertrain, the motorcycle is likely to draw energy from the same 999 cc, inline-four engine that powers the current model. However, Suzuki might have updated the motorcycle to squeeze more power and torque output, as compared to the current engine's 145 hp power and 106 Nm output. The engine is likely to be paired with a 6-speed transmission.
Speaking of electronics, the new GSX-S1000 could get IMU-assisted traction control, cornering ABS and other technologies as well. These functions could be accessible via a new TFT screen.
