I replaced my naked SV1000 with this back in Dec '17:

IMG-20171206-194050403

The 1000 isn't sold here, we only got the 750. It doesn't have the power of the SV1000 nor the torque and the seat sucks big time! But I won't lie and say I miss the SV, the GSXS is smoother, gets WAY better fuel mileage while riding at a similar pace and the engine is uber smooth.I haven't bothered looking into engine mods nor tuning, stock makes enough power; but the suspension did need attention. Got a Matris shock and cartridge kit, which makes it handle like a real sportbike.

The 750 has similar forks to the 1000, but cheaper (surprise!), and they work very well. The weakest link is the dirt cheap rear shock which is pretty much the same POS that the 1000 comes with. IMHO a good rear shock is a must on these bikes.

750 should make enough power to get you in troubble and out off it too

Newer R1 rear shocks are supposed to be budget upgrades

It's definitely down on power compared to an SV1000, 20hp or so according to the specsheet. The gearing makes up for some of that as it is a bit shorter, theoretically the 750 will redline at around 150mph. But, honestly, with no wind protection you won't be doing that kind of speeds for too long.

BTW, the naked SV1000 seemed to be slower than the SV1000S past 100mph. We tried a few times and I could get an edge over the S under 100mph, but past that the S was faster. That little half fairing does wonders.

Should work well with the stock forks which are much better than what came in the later SV1000.

Well that stinks.

& agree with the half fairing making a difference!
This thing w/o any wind protection is a bitch anything over 85...125 is about my limit of "hanging on & fighting the wind"
I have an Ermax Sport Screen coming, that will help a little, but sure do miss tucking behind that lil SV halfer😤

Almost bought the GSX-S myself a few years ago.....test rode it for about 30 mins.....slowly started to adapt to the snatchy throttle..
Was a little shocked that Suzuki let it go out of the factory like that.....

I felt like i was cheating on the SV at the time, so i had to go back to her and stroke her and hug her.....( hang on...should i say that..?)

One owner..... 300,000kms and counting... yes, that much..........

Looks sweet....

I don't know if there any laws around tail tidies and number plate mounts, (does the plate have to be vertical), but, if you were able to angle
the bottom of the plate out at the bottom, it may help to save some crap turning your tailight into frosted glass.....

My original tidy on my SV was too short, and the tailight was decimated by sandblasting......added a short narrow splatter guard below it and no probs now....

Hey, i noticed you are from Melbourne..... so was i ...... in Victoria, Oztrailea..... haha

Yes, that tidy was on there when I bought. Plan on an angled different one eventually. & some led signals. Not sure brand that tidy is. It is on list to replace.
