Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) Features

  • The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) provides the rider a choice of three different engine power output modes. All three modes deliver maximum engine output, but provide different throttle response and torque characteristics when accelerating.
  • The five-mode Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS) continuously monitors front- and rear-wheel speed, engine RPM, throttle position and gear position to adjust engine output to prevent undesired rear wheel spin, while helping maintain traction and power delivery to the road.
  • The advanced Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle System leverages the capability of the GSX-S1000GT’s 32-bit ECM and CAN-style wire harness to precisely control engine output relative to throttle action.
  • The Bi-directional Quick Shift System (QS) allows the GSX-S1000GT rider to shift up or down quickly and easily, without operating the clutch or throttle.
  • The GSX-S1000GT’s Cruise Control System (CC) is a convenient new system that allows the rider to maintain a set speed without operating the throttle. This helps reduce fatigue when touring long distances, particularly when travelling at constant speed on highways.
  • The Suzuki Easy Start System lets the rider start the motorcycle with a simple press of the starter button. There is no need to pull in the clutch lever when the transmission is in neutral, and the starter motor automatically disengages, the instant the engine fires up.
  • The Low RPM Assist System seamlessly increases engine speed to smooth the power delivery when launching from a standing start or riding at low speeds, which helps ensure better control and operation in stop-and-go traffic. The system also minimizes the possibility of the rider stalling the motorcycle during take-off.

Suzuki mySPIN Connectivity Features

  • Available through the Apple App Store or Google Play, riders can install the free SUZUKI mySPIN app on their smartphone. Once installed, mySPIN provides an array of useful functions from five bundled applications specifically developed for motorcycle use.
  • The mySPIN applications appear on the TFT LCD panel with similar fonts and display format to the motorcycle’s systems, providing the rider a familiar appearance and intuitive operation of the updated left handlebar switch assembly. This familiarity will help when accessing features and content, or to change settings while riding.
  • The mySPIN system applications include Contacts, Phone, Maps, Music and Calendar
  • In the future, mySPIN will expand the menu of third-party applications that can add additional functions to the TFT LCD, such as navigation, weather information and more.

TFT LCD Multi-information Display Features

  • The GSX-S1000GT’s instrument panel uses a new-generation 6.5-inch, full-color TFT LCD screen. Developed specifically for use on motorcycles, this TFT display is the first of its kind on a Suzuki motorcycle.
  • This high-quality instrument panel is set into the inner fairing above the handlebars, for good visibility and protection from road debris. The large TFT LCD panel, itself, features a scratch-resistant surface, and an anti-reflective coating that improves visibility in bright light.
  • The brightness adjustable TFT display delivers a wide range of useful information, keeping the rider fully aware of all the bike’s systems, settings and real-time operating status; when connected to the rider’s smartphone it can also display maps, incoming and outgoing phone calls, contacts, and music for even greater convenience, functionality and fun.
  • The display format provides operational information in an easily recognizable way.
  • Two secondary TFT LCD screens allow the rider to choose and adjust the settings on certain motorcycle and mySPIN features.
  • The TFT LCD readouts include: Speedometer (digital), RPM indicator (shift light), Tachometer (analog format), Transmission gear position, Fuel gauge, Coolant temperature, Ambient air temperature, Cruise control setting, SDMS mode, Traction control mode, Quick Shift (ON/OFF), Voltmeter, Clock (12-hour format), Odometer, Dual trip meter, Average fuel consumption (Trip 1 & 2), Instant fuel consumption, Riding range (per fuel onboard), Smartphone battery level, Smartphone connection status, and Rider-passenger intercommunication status (Bluetooth®).
  • The main TFT LCD panel is flanked by LED indicators, including: Left-turn signal indicator, MIL (Malfunction Indication Lamp), neutral indicator light, master warning indicator, high-beam indicator light, right-turn signal indicator, TC (Traction Control) indicator, low oil pressure warning light, ABS indicator, and coolant temperature warning light.
  • Located to the left of the instrument panel is a USB outlet that the rider can use to connect an iOS or AndroidTM smartphone to the TFT LCD panel. The data connection can also be established via Wireless LAN and Bluetooth®. The USB outlet can also charge the smartphone’s battery.

Transmission Features

  • Like a GSX-R1000, the GSX-S1000GT's race-proven, six-speed, close-ratio transmission features vertically staggered shafts to reduce overall engine length.
  • The precise shift linkage helps the rider easily and quickly select the best gear for the riding conditions.
  • The latest version of the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) clutch is fitted to the GSX-S1000GT. More than ever before, the SCAS clutch increases plate pressure under acceleration, yet acts as a slipper clutch to smooth the engine response during engine braking and corner entry.
  • The strong, 525 drive chain uses O-rings to preserve internal lubrication, so power is transmitted smoothly and quietly.
