Suzuki GSX-S1000F Not Coming to the USA Until…2016?

The big “new” model from Suzuki for 2015 is the Suzuki GSX-S1000, and its fully-faired cousin the Suzuki GSX-S1000F. Using the 2008 Suzuki GSX-R1000’s engine, retuned for street riding, the GSX-S1000 is Suzuki’s liter-bike streetfighter, while the GSX-S1000F is being billed as a very sporty sport-tourer…or a comfortable sport bike…however you want to slice that cake.

The good news is that the Suzuki GSX-S1000, Suzuki GSX-S1000F, Suzuki GSX-S1000F ABS have been confirmed by Suzuki Motor America as coming to the USA.

The bad news is that GSX-S1000 lineup will be 2016 models, not 2015. While Suzuki isn’t saying when the machines will arrive at dealers, it seems fair to infer that the 2016 model year designation means Summer 2015 at the earliest.

This means in the meantime, naked bike fans will have to be satiated by the Suzuki GSX-S750, which is America’s version of the 2011 Suzuki GSR750 from Europe.
