2018 Suzuki GSX-S1000FZ Phantom edition announced

Suzuki has announced their updated 2018 Suzuki GSX-S1000FZ Phantom for next year.

The new addition to the GSX-S Phantom family comes with all-matte black livery with red highlights plus a blacked-out exhaust.

Suzuki also introduced the 2018 Suzuki GSX-S1000 which now comes in white and the middleweight 2018 GSX-S750 in red and black.

Suzuki has announced their latest addition into the Phantom family which comes in the form of the 2018 Suzuki GSX-S1000FZ Phantom. The GSX-S1000FZ joins the 2017 Suzuki GSX-S1000 Phantom and Suzuki GSX-S750 Phantom which are already available in several markets worldwide.

The new 2018 GSX-S1000FZ Phantom comes in all-matte black paint job with fine red highlights to bring out the inner demon of this super sports tourer. Although there’s already a Suzuki GSX-S1000F Phantom released before this, this new model earned its extra ‘Z’ letter at the back with a significant new part to differentiate between the two; a black exhaust.

Powered by the iconic Suzuki GSX-R1000 K5 power plant, the new Suzuki sports tourer has been retuned and refined for a more controlled power and the low and middle rpm range to provide extra control and stability while haunting down city streets.

The engine maintains the same setup as the 2017 models with 150hp at 10,000rpm and 108Nm of torque at 9,5000rpm. Together with a reworked assist-and-slipper clutch, the new 2018 GSX-S1000FZ is said to be more dignified machine, provided that you don’t twist the throttle all the way to release its inner demon. After all, it is powered by a one-litre Gixxer engine.

If you prefer the original GSX-S1000, there will be a new colour available for 2018 which comes in white livery with red and black graphics plus red wheels.

If you’re looking for a middleweight, the 2018 Suzuki GSX-S750 will carry the same specs but will be available in a brand new red and black colour scheme.

Expect these bikes to arrive at dealerships around the world in stages beginning of next year. As for Malaysia, we might have to wait for official confirmation from Suzuki Assemblers Malaysia. Until then, enjoy the photos!
