Suzuki has revealed 2024 colours for its GSX-S950. The 95PS GSX-S model, which can be restricted for A2 licence compliance, will come in a silver and dark red this year, along with an updated trademark metallic triton blue and a stealth all-black version.

The GSX-S950 is based on the GSX-S1000 platform and shares the same frame and GSX-R-derived swingarm. It also uses the same 999cc, superbike-derived engine, but while peak power output is reduced to 95PS from 152PS, the 950 still makes use of the donor engine’s creamy midrange to produce 92 Nm of peak torque.


There’s a three-mode traction control system, a ride-by-wire throttle, easy start and low RPM assist.
The 999cc four-stroke DOHC liquid-cooled inline-four engine that powers the GSX-S950 uses winning superbike DNA. This street-tuned engine is based on core architecture that benefits from know-how acquired over decades of developing the GSX-R1000 to win countless production race victories, and our championship winning MotoGP team. This street focused GSX-S950 is designed to perform in street conditions and is balanced to meet the needs of those wanting fun and usability rather than just outright peak performance.

Great Riding Enjoyment
Every aspect of the GSX-S950’s performance has been refined and balanced to deliver great riding enjoyment and pleasure, while still be easy to use. Peak power output is 95PS (70kW) or can be restricted to 47.5PS (35kW) and both benefit from a strong torque especially through the low- to mid-range engine speeds most commonly used.

The broad, smooth torque curve consistently delivers usable power throughout the engine’s operating range and particularly shines in the low to mid-range rpm range. Exhaust and intake cam profiles are finely tuned for lift and reduce valve lift overlap to achieve a great overall balance of performance and controllability across a broad range of engine speeds, while also contributing to clean emissions performance. The internal structure of the air box helps improve sound and output characteristics. The electronic throttle bodies helps achieve an optimal balance between idling throttle response and power output characteristics.

Clean, Sharp and Exciting
A clean, sharp look and exciting sound, the 4-2-1 exhaust system is designed and tuned to optimise performance, help satisfy Euro 5 emission standards and enhance the quality of its exhaust note. The design includes a second catalytic converter inside the chamber while the structure of the connecting pipes between cylinder pairs increase the performance of the secondary air injection system, which improves the ability to purify exhaust gases.

Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS)
Adopting both slip and assist functionality.

The slipper clutch partially disengages to reduce negative engine torque and mitigate the effect of engine braking when downshifting from high rpm. This helps prevent the rear tyre from locking up or hopping and provides smoother deceleration, enabling the rider to shift down with greater confidence and maintain better control when downshifting into corners.

The assist function increases the clutch’s clamping force under acceleration and thereby allows the use of softer springs while still efficiently transferring torque to the rear wheel. This results in light clutch lever operation, which reduces left hand fatigue when stuck in traffic jams, or in other situations that require frequent clutch lever operation
