News on the GSX-S1000 is merely a confirmation that this bike, whose engine is based on the vaunted 2005 GSX-R1000’s, is really, no kidding, we’re totally serious, coming to America. Aluminum framed and featuring three-mode traction control, the GSX-S1000s get street-friendly ergonomics, KYB adjustable suspension, and Brembo Monobloc brakes. And finally Suzuki’s given us prices: The base GSX-S1000 comes without ABS for $9,999 in Metallic Triton Blue or Metallic Fibron Gray. Option up to the GSX-S1000 with ABS and pay $10,499; it comes in Metallic Triton Blue or Sparkle Black/Pearl Mira. Think about that: The ABS version of the GSX-S1000 is $1,500 less spendy than a Kawasaki Z1000. The base model is almost $1,800 under the ABS-free Honda CB1000R. Only the smaller-displacement FZ-09 triple, at $8,190, significantly undercuts the Suzukis. It’s on!
