Suzuki announces GSX-S1000 Carbon and GSX-S1000F Tour special edition models
Back in March this year, Suzuki UK had announced the GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F Yoshimura special edition machines. They're at it again after just five months and this time it's the GSX-S1000 Carbon Edition and GSX-S1000F Tour Edition, both of which are available with Suzuki's signature MotoGP-blue and red-and-black colours. The blue GSX-S1000 Carbon Edition gets colour-coded Brembo monobloc calipers, fluorescent yellow graphics and wheel tape, and a carbon accessory kit that includes a rear hugger, crankcase cover, clutch cover and alternator cover. The red-and-black version gets the carbon kit, red Brembo calipers, white graphics and red wheel tape. Yours for a mere £9,499 or £9,999 with ABS. (What is that, again? ABS is optional?!?!)
The GSX-S1000F Tour Edition is also available in blue and red/black, and gets a 15-litre tankbag, 12-litre tailpack, a taller windscreen, heated grips and a silver graphics kit. A bargain at just £10,299. "The GSX-S1000 is a supernaked that already ticks plenty of boxes, thanks to its aggressive styling and the fact it’s powered by the engine from the iconic GSX-R1000 K5. The new special editions will further stand out from the crowd, with their attention-grabbing graphics and coloured Brembo calipers. The GSX-S1000F is the everyday sportsbike, with a comfortable riding position and weather protection, while retaining it’s GSX-R character. However, we are seeing that a lot of customers are using theirs above and beyond a weekend blast, and are often journeying further afield. The Tour Edition means that customers that are considering using it for that purpose, can do so with even more comfort and practicality," says Suzuki GB marketing manager, Rob Cooper.
Not bad at all, really, but we'd still wait for the 2017 GSX-R1000, which is likely to be unveiled at the EICMA this year.
