New 2024 GSX-S1000GX

The idea of mixing together a superbike and adventure bike has been around for quite some time now, especially for the Europeans. In 2015, BMW launched the S1000 XR, which is basically an S1000 RR superbike on stilts. Ducati, too, has its version in their Multistrada lineup – currently the Pikes Peak and the RS.

Now, Suzuki will try and take a piece of the pie from the Europeans, by putting longer suspension and adventure bike ergonomics on their GSX-R-derived GSX-S1000.


At the 2023 EICMA in Italy, Suzuki is proud to showcase its new “supreme sport crossover” GSX-S1000GX.

The all-new GSX-S1000GX is a crossover model that combines sport-tourer and adventure elements. By adopting the engine from the GSX-S1000 series, it inherits the power performance required for sport riding while also incorporating new technologies and equipment to enhance touring capabilities.

The styling features an aggressive silhouette that embodies the performance of a sports bike, combined with a modern design that pursues a comfortable upright riding position for touring.

The GSX-S1000GX is Suzuki’s first motorcycle that has been equipped with the Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES), which electronically controls the suspension damping and preload according to vehicle speed, road surface conditions, and changes in posture caused by the brakes – kind of similar to BMW’s Dynamic ESA.

Suzuki has also developed and equipped the unique Suzuki Road Adaptive Stabilization (SRAS) program, which detects uneven road surfaces and automatically switches the suspension control amount by incorporating SAES with data from the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and other sources. As a result, it is possible to achieve both a smooth ride with suppressed vibration on unpaved roads, and dynamic sport performance on paved roads.

In addition, the model is equipped with a variety of electronic control functions, such as the SDMS-α system for integrated management of power characteristics, traction control levels, and SAES damping settings, as well as the Motion Track Brake System that can activate ABS even when leaning into corners. This well-rounded crossover model allows riders to easily master high levels of intelligence and performance, regardless of the situation, road conditions, or riding experience.
