  • Looks like the monsoon is already here. And its raining motorcycles from Suzuki.

  • So after making an impressive return to MotoGP with their race prototype, the GSX-RR, now they

  • have launched this, the GSX-S1000. Suzuki's very first litre class naked.

  • And its powered by the iconic engine from the K5 GSX-R. One which Troy Corser raced to Suzuki's only World Superbike

  • title in 2005, and gets a 3 mode traction control as well which even the latest GSX-R

  • doesn't get. So lets see how far this takes forward the legacy of the most legendary GSX-R.

  • What has impressed me the most is the way this handles. And that's thanks to this all new aluminium chassis which is,

  • even lighter than the one on the present generation GSX-R1000. Combine that with the short wheelbase

  • and the wide handlebars and this is a hoot to ride in even the most technical sections.

  • Supremely agile and the feedback from the chassis is just telepathic.

  • When you think, and it turns. The suspension too is adjustible soaking in the bumps so effortlessly.

  • Custom made Dunlops for this bike which provided a supreme amount of grip for road tyres and

  • really consistent feedback in dry as well as wet. Things I did not like were the brakes.

  • They lack initial bite, and you have to grab quite a handful of the lever to shed speed quickly.

  • The throttle is really sensitive, making on-off throttle transitions very snatchy

  • and very jerky, especially in the city. But talking about the city, the ergonomics are

  • perfect for the urban environment.

  • The seat height is the lowest you will find on a litre class naked. The handlebar is upright and wide enough to make U-turns less of a chore.

  • And the light clutch is well suited to tackle the clogged city streets. But I am not entirely

  • convinced about the way it looks. And more importantly I feel, the GSX-S1000 marks a

  • shift in Suzuki's approach. They were never about electronics. They would always insist

  • on making motorcycles that provide a pure riding experience. Bikes which are very involving

  • and which give riders the supreme control. And that, has obviously changed with this

  • bike. And the addition of electronic aids has changed this into a tempting proposition

  • even for unexperienced riders. But in doing so ironically, this, the Kawasaki Z1000 has

  • come to represent everything that Suzuki has advocated thus far.

  • So how do they fare in comparison. The Sugomi design sets the Z1000 apart from any other naked in the market.

  • But the GSX-S1000 is the best sounding Japanese vehicle.

  • The shorter final drive on the Z tears through the tarmac from the on set but it's top end isn't nearly as fierce as that on the GSX.

  • The brakes on the Z have a ravenous bite and the Showa big piston forks provide

  • the stability required to make the most out of it.

  • The GSX counters it with the stability afforded by the slipper clutch, which the Z1000 doesn't get.

  • The Z's fueling was much better in the city, but it's clutch is ridiculously hard in comparison to that of the GSX.

  • The GSX though is buzzier at higher revs but offers outstanding ride quality compared to the stiff

  • ride of the Z. But where the Suzuki really pulls up a gap on the Kawasaki is in the

  • corners and that's because the GSX is 12 kgs lighter, which means its that much quicker on its feet,

  • that much easier to flick in and out of tight corners and carry more speed, owing to its

  • better ground clearance, and it really throws the knockout punch by delivering more power,

  • better equipment and better technology by still undercutting the Z1000 and thereby ultimately

  • winning this bout. So there you have it guys. That is pretty much all from my end. Hope

  • you have enjoyed this duel as much as I have. If you have any queries, any doubts please

  • drop your comments and make sure you enable your replies, so we can get back to you as

  • soon as possible. And of course, if you want to be a part of the PD Army, click the link below!
