ULTIMATE CROSSOVER PERFORMANCE
The high performance 999cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled DOHC inline four-cylinder engine that powers the GSX-S1000GX is engineered to perform under all kinds of riding conditions, whether touring for long distances or out for a sporty run. Its smooth, consistent, power throughout its wide power band, makes for an easy and exciting sports crossover riding experience, whilst a comprehensive suite of electronic rider aids offer fine and customisable control for your preferred riding style and riding pleasure at any given time.
Core strength is provided by a frame and swing arm that supports the engine’s superbike levels of performance. Extended wheel travel in both the front and rear helps smooth out rougher or undulating surfaces, while Dunlop SPORTMAX Roadsport 2 tyres provide sure grip in all conditions. The GX introduces Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) for the first time, with a variety of settings that automatically adjust on the fly to match the riding conditions of the moment. Other details include an upright riding position and handlebars that contribute to controllability and stability. The chassis and engine combination, allied to the advanced control systems of the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) provide an exciting new riding experience.
PERFORMANCE AND COMFORT
The twin-spar aluminium frame is built to deliver agile handling and great road holding ability, even when carrying a passenger and fully laden. When viewed from the side, the main tubes run straight from the steering head to the swingarm pivot. This design helps achieve high rigidity and lighter weight. The seat rails serve two benefits. Firstly, they provide rigid and secure attachment points for the optional side cases. Secondly, their relatively low height makes it possible to maximise the thickness of the pillion seat for greater passenger comfort. As a bonus, the exposed design adds to the striking look of functional beauty.
SUZUKI ADVANCED ELECTRONIC SUSPENSION (SAES)
The GSX-S1000GX is the first Suzuki motorcycle to adopt Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES), which offers a broad range of settings that ably support everything from aggressive sport riding to long-distance touring. Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) uses Showa EERA® series suspension tuned for the GSX-S1000GX which is an electronic version of the SFF-CA™ inverted telescopic front forks and BFRC-lite® link-type monoshock. It not only uses vehicle and speed information from the IMU and wheel speed sensors, but also from high-precision stroke sensors compactly integrated into both the front and rear suspension. This state-of-the-art electronically controlled suspension not only absorbs road surface irregularities to improve manoeuvrability and comfort, but also achieves both good handling performance at low speeds and reassuring stability at high speeds.
