35 years after the birth of the original GSX model, the GSX-S1000 takes the GSX line in an aggressive new direction. The roots of the GSX series started in 1976 with the GS750 – Suzuki’s first four-stroke in-line-four cylinder sports bike. In 1980, the GS engine evolved to a 16-valve design with the introduction of the GSX750E. It was the origin of the glorious GSX lineage, followed by the radical GSX1100S KATANA in 1981, and the legendary, original GSX-R750 in 1985.
