There is a new sports tourer from Japan that is making some news-Suzuki GSX-S1000GT. As the name implies, it is based on the recently updated Suzuki GSX-S1000 and replaces the former Suzuki GSX-S1000F. We continue to compete with the Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX, but this time there is a reason to worry about the economical quacker sports tourer.
The main reason is that the GSX-S1000GT is much sportier, mean and attractive than the GSX-S1000F, but with protector lamps, LED eyebrows, blue coloring, etc., it’s very quirky like Yamaha. .. As before, this bike is a sportier alternative to the V-Strom 1050 XT, but ride quality is a priority. The GT features a new design of seats and grab rails, and the bike emphasizes the comfort of the pillion as much as the rider. It uses the same 19-liter tank as its naked siblings, but with a large screen and full fairing for improved weather protection and highway comfort. As a result, bodywork is more aerodynamic than before, and handlebars and footrests have added damping to reduce vibration.
Like its rivals, the GT has a TFT dash and Bluetooth connection for pairing smartphones, and up to two helmets for navigation, rider assistance, music streaming, tracking, route sharing, and weather information services using the Suzuki mySPIN app. Is equipped with.
The GT is suspended from a 43 mm upside down manually adjustable fork and preload and rebound adjustable rear shocks. Braking obligations are carried out by Brembo brakes with two 310 mm discs on the front and 240 mm discs on the rear. Power comes from the iconic K5999 cc in-line 4-cylinder engine, which outputs 150hp and 106Nm, but with a slight peak for the tourer, especially when compared to the lightweight Ninja 1000 SX. Both motorcycles are heavyweight, but the low seat height of the GSX-S GT makes them easier to handle.
Like Kawasaki, the GSX-S1000GT has touring accessories such as larger windshields and color-coordinated panniers as part of its catalog.
But the more important question is whether Suzuki will bring the GSX-S1000GT to India. Well, the previous GSX-S1000 series didn’t work very well for the brand, but its rival Kawasaki 1000 SX has brought some big numbers. Therefore, ideally Suzuki should also consider GT in our market. Expect a price tag of around Rs 120,000 (excluding showrooms) when it goes on sale.
