2016 Suzuki GSX-S1000 (ABS) Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price
2016 Suzuki GSX-S1000

The legendary torquey Suzuki K8 motor used in the 2007 edition of the track-prowling GSX-R1000 powers the GSX-S1000. Cam profiles have been optimized for street use, and the 4-2-1 exhaust focuses on putting out more low-end and midrange power, which is exactly what makes a bike work great in the real world of riding.

There is four-position traction control (including off), along with three power modes and an ABS version runs an additional $500.
