The Suzuki GSX-S1000 Race Edition is impressive proof of how racing inspiration and streetability can be combined in one bike.  Although Suzuki has given up its presence in the premier class of motorcycle racing, MotoGP, the brand is still active and successful in the EWC (Endurance World Championship), especially with the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team, which currently holds a strong fourth place in the 2023 season.

The design: a tribute to the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team.

The GSX-S1000 Race Edition has been equipped with a unique color scheme reminiscent of the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team colors.  A fresh blue metallic, combined with classy gold, makes the bike look just as good on the street as it does on the race track.  But the design is not only visually appealing, it is also functional: a short spoiler hood over the headlights, a “race” seat with pillion cover and red Brembo brake calipers at the front set accents and underscore the bike’s sporty character.


Equipment and extras: racing flair for the road

The GSX-S1000 Race Edition is equipped with a variety of extras that make it a race-ready machine.  These include a GB Racing engine and crankcase protector and a short license plate holder that creates a sleek silhouette.  The highlight is undoubtedly the Akrapovic Slip-On system that gives the bike an aggressive, piercing sound.  To complete the racing experience, the bike comes with a numbered SERT FW badge and a welcome package that includes a cap and a T-shirt.


Engine power and performance

Under the hood of the Suzuki GSX-S1000 Race Edition is a 999cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that delivers a maximum output of 152 PS (150 hp, 113 kW) at 11,000 rpm and 106 Nm at 9,250 rpm.  The Akrapovic slip-on could boost the power by another two to three additional horsepower or so, making this bike even more powerful.


Price and availability

The Suzuki GSX-S1000 Race Edition is a limited edition available exclusively on the French market.  With its additional equipment and unique color scheme, it is slightly more expensive than the standard model at €16,999 ($18,468), but still an attractive option for racing enthusiasts.


Other models: The GSX-S950 Race Edition

In addition to the GSX-S1000 Race Edition, Suzuki also has the GSX-S950 Race Edition on offer.  This model is slightly less powerful with 95 hp (94 hp, 70 kW), but can be throttled down to 48 PS (47 hp, 35 kW) for the European stage license.  This model also features an Akrapovic exhaust, a pillion pad cover and a numbered aluminum plate.  In France, the GSX-S950 Race Edition is available for 13,099 euros ($14,321 USD).  The Premium version with red Tokico brake calipers, various other covers and protectors, and a fan package is available for 14,699 euros ($16,043 USD) and offers additional color options.



With the GSX-S1000 and GSX-S950 Race Edition, Suzuki has two bikes on offer that combine the brand’s racing character with the streetability of a naked bike.  Both models are equipped with a range of extras that make them special, and with their powerful engines they are ideally equipped for both the racetrack and the road.
