A 1000 cc version of the new GSX1000S was made to homologated the model for racing purposes. By decreasing the bore by 2,6 mm the cylinder displacement was decreased to 998 cc, just below the one-liter mark. The GSX1000SD was available in shops already in 1981.

The UK 1000SZ, built for racing, had slide carburetors, whereas the 1100's had CV carbs. The US 1000S, however, had CV carbs! Also, the US versions never had the black ”fins”under the nose fairing - the mounting holes were blanked-off on all US bikes.
