In 2004, the Japanese manufacturer launched the Suzuki GSX-1400Z, which was not only modified on the surface but also featured changes to the internal guts.
The fuel injection system was revisited for better fuel intake and acceleration at the lower speed range and packed an automatic fast idle system. An internally coded ignition key was added as an immobilizer system, and the aluminum cylinder walls were coated with something called Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) that improved heat transfer. The front brake lever was reduced to a five-step adjustment from the previously six-step.
Another easy-to-spot difference was the new exhaust system, revised from the classic twin four-two-two system into a four-two-one pipe with a stainless-steel muffler that reduced the overall weight by three kg (6.6 lbs) but also reduced the torque by two Nm. The feel and looks of the bike remained unchanged, with the Suzuki logo changed to a single "S" and with available colors such as the Pearl Deep Blue with Pearl White, Pearl Red with Solid Black, and Solid Black.
In the power department, the 2004 Suzuki GSX-1400Z took its thrust from a 1,402cc four-stroke four-cylinder air/oil-cooled engine that delivered a power output of 105 hp at 6,800 rpm and 124 Nm (91 lb-ft) of torque at 5,000 rpm.
For suspension, the model packed a 46 mm telescopic fork with adjustable preload, compression, and rebound on the front while the rear was assisted by a fully adjustable piggyback shock.
