Suzuki has used the EICMA motorcycle show to unveil the 2024 GSX-S1000GX, a crossover motorcycle that merges the best bits of the GSX-S1000GT and the V-Strom 1050. To be offered in Metallic Triton Blue, it will arrive down under in April next year.
Set to be priced from $25,890 ride away, the GSX-S1000GX features superbike level performance, confidence-inspiring control, optimised comfort and connectivity, in a premium sports touring package.
Featuring a longer suspension stroke that contributes to its extended front and rear wheel travel, increased ground clearance and a comfortable upright riding position, it comes loaded with Suzuki’s advanced electronic suspension.
Road adaptive stabilisation is also included, with the duo helping create a bike that sits comfortably between the sports and adventure tourers. Integrated riding modes are paired with Suzuki’s intelligent ride system to create a predictable, less fatiguing ride.
The GSX-S1000GX also sports selectable automatic rear suspension modes (four in total), three different ride modes, and five traction control settings. A new 6.5-inch full colour TFT display supports smartphone connectivity.
Featuring an anti-reflective coating for improved visibility, it has a buttery-smooth tacho display and exclusive graphics. The SUZUKI mySPIN app provides phone mirroring for contacts, your calendar, music, and map apps.
Powered by a 999cm3 liquid-cooled DOHC inline-four engine designed to perform under diverse riding conditions, it delivers 112kW of power. Street-tuned, it provides durability and balanced performance for long distant touring and aggressive sport riding.
Offering nimble handling, agility, stability, and comfort, the GSX-S1000GX rides on lightweight, six-spoke cast aluminium wheels, shod with the latest generation Dunlop SPORTMAX Roadsport 2 radial tyres.
It features a sharp front cowl, and protruding nose that culminates at the compact LED low- beam headlight. The headlight is flanked by LED position lights with the look of a sharp pair of “eyes”.
Aerodynamics and wind protection are critically important too, and the front cowl, windscreen and knuckle covers were all designed through a process that involved both wind tunnel testing and feedback from test riders.
The goal was to maximise wind protection and make the rider more comfortable by reducing sources of stress such as exposure to the cold and elements. This reduces fatigue when touring for long distances at speed and frees the rider to concentrate.
The windscreen features 3-step adjustment and allows 50mm of travel, which raises or lowers the height by up to 43mm. The fuel tank boasts a capacity of 19-litres and has been designed to appear compact.
Customers can reserve their 2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX via the “Build Your Bike” tool on the Suzuki Motorcycles Australia website. Pre-orders will receive a bonus “side case set” valued at over $1800 (conditions apply).
