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.

EXCITING PERFORMANCE
The engine delivers high performance with smooth, consistent, powerful output throughout its wide power band. This makes for an easy and exciting riding experience, both at the low and mid-range engine speeds commonly used when touring and in daily riding, through to the top end. It features a broad, smooth torque curve and power delivery. This combines with a variety of electronic control technologies to offer fine and customisable control over power output characteristics and enable the rider to match torque output when opening the throttle to the type of ride or their riding style at any given time. This includes offering the excitement of powerful acceleration and all-round performance to support aggressive, sporty riding when desired.

POWER, STYLE AND SOUND
The four-into-two-into-one exhaust system for the GSX-S1000GX features clean, sharp looks and delivers an exciting exhaust note with powerful resonance for aural pleasure that is not intrusive enough to hinder the GX’s long distance touring ability. Its chamber structure and two-stage catalytic converter design contributes to maximising overall performance while also satisfying Euro 5 emission standards. The short muffler is blacked out to help accentuate the bike’s tall look and adds elegance to the overall design.

SUZUKI CLUTCH ASSIST SYSTEM (SCAS)
The assist function leverages precision-engineered ramps to force the clutch boss and pressure plate together and efficiently transfer torque to the rear wheel under acceleration, all while using softer clutch springs. This results in a light clutch lever operation. The slipper clutch partially disengages when downshifting to decelerate to mitigate the effect of engine braking. By helping to prevent the rear wheel from hopping and providing smoother deceleration, this function enables the rider to shift down with greater confidence and maintain better control. SCAS works harmoniously with the bi-directional quickshifter to deliver an additional benefit to the system’s clutch-free shifting.

SUPERIOR CROSSOVER RIDING
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.

SPORT CROSSOVER ERGONOMICS
The GSX-S1000GX is designed to provide maximum comfort for a more relaxing and less tiring touring experience, for both rider and pillion. Attention to detail includes the floating handlebars and rubber footrests that reduce vibration, and a comfortable new seat design.

To give the optimum crossover touring riding position the handlebar grips are 55mm closer to the rider than on the GSX-S1000GT. This allows the rider a more upright posture, which enhances comfort. The new handlebars are 50mm longer than the GT, too, and feature a 14mm wider grip placement, making them comfortable to hold and giving the rider greater control over steering with less effort required. The extended suspension travel and new seat design also lengthen the distance between the rider’s hip point and foot point by 15mm, which further contributes to comfort by reducing the amount of bending at the knees. The overall result is a comfortable upright riding position that is less tiring and provides greater control, whether touring long distances or heading out to enjoy a sporty run.

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.

PRACTICAL AND STYLISH
The GSX-S1000GX is fitted with a practical rear carrier made of lightweight aluminium. Solid grab bars on each side provide the passenger with a firm grip but are also designed not to interfere when removing the optional side cases. Offering a 6kg load capacity its stylish design also provides visual impact and presence.

LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINIUM SWINGARM
The robust aluminium swingarm boasts race bike lineage. Rugged and braced, it provides great road holding ability and the strength to withstand long rides, heavy loads, and the demands of sporty runs.

PREMIUM STOPPING POWER
The GSX-S1000GX uses radially-mounted Brembo monobloc front calipers. Each caliper has four opposed 32mm pistons acting on a 310mm floating-mount disc for strong stopping power. A single hydraulic disc provides stopping power to the rear wheel.

SPORTY WHEELS AND TYRES
The lightweight, six-spoke, cast aluminium wheels feature a highly appealing design that also contributes to positive handling and sporty performance. They are shod with the latest generation of Dunlop SPORTMAX Roadsport 2 radial tyres (120/70ZR17 front, 190/50ZR17 rear). Designed to perform optimally and provide sure grip, these tyres have been fine-tuned specifically to match the weight and performance characteristics of the GX, and to deliver the right combination of agility and stability. Dunlop’s proven tread pattern uses a silica compound that enhances positive grip in wet conditions and features durable wear resistance.

TWO-UP ALL-DAY COMFORT
Both the rider and pillion seats are designed to provide maximum comfort. They also feature a sporty and attractive design. The rider seat cushion is 15mm thicker than on the GSX-S1000GT. In addition, its top surface is flatter from side to side than on the GT. This enhances comfort by increasing the area that supports the rider’s weight from the middle to the rear of the seat, while the seat front is tapered to provide freedom of movement when enjoying a more aggressive, sporty run. The pillion seat is also 10mm thicker than on the GT, and its firmness revised for the GX, and its top surface made 26mm wider.

WIND-CUTTING AERODYNAMICS
The GX’s front cowl, height-adjustable windscreen and standard-equipment knuckle covers were all carefully developed to provide the level of aerodynamic performance and comfort desired on long rides, while at the same time paying keen attention to achieving attractive styling. Maximized wind protection makes your ride more comfortable by reducing exposure to the cold and elements, reducing fatigue when touring for long distances at speed enabling you to concentrate on enjoying the ride, regardless of weather or road conditions. Attention to detail extends to the front cowl, where a new layered design suppresses the generation of negative air pressure to help prevent head buffeting. In addition, holes placed strategically on the face are effective in reducing front lift. The sides were also widened to help better guide the flow of air away from the area of the abdomen so it doesn’t cause the discomfort of your jacket blowing in the wind.

SUZUKI INTELLIGENT RIDE SYSTEM (SIRS)
The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) for the GSX-S1000GX applies the latest high-spec technologies in a manner that makes its collection of advanced electronic rider assist systems easy for you to fully enjoy. You choose an integrated riding mode or individual settings to best suit your level of experience, your riding style, and the conditions of the moment. In turn, SIRS frees you to concentrate on riding with greater confidence by making the GX more controllable, more predictable, and less tiring to ride, no matter how far your journey takes you.
