The GSX-S1000 is a sporty, bare roadsterthat is primarily based, not on the cutting-edge complete-faired GSX-R1000, however on the 2005 Suzuki GSX-R1000. well, no longer the complete motorcycle, but the engine is derived from the 2005 GSX-R1000’s and that engine is type of a legend, even triumphing the 2005 international Superbike Championship, piloted via Troy Corser.

In over 3 decades of the GSX-R’s records, few engines had been greater popular than the long stroke K5 motor of the GSX-R1000 produced between 2005 and 2008.
