2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX Review – Specs

The 2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX+ is the latest and greatest addition to Suzuki’s growing family of motorcycles, and it’s here to blow you away. With its sport-touring functionality and ADV styling, this Crossover motorcycle fills a unique role in the market. It sits perfectly between the traditional GSX-S1000GT/GT+ sport-tourer and the V-Strom 1050 adventure bike, offering the best of both worlds.

But don’t be fooled by its long name, the GSX-S1000GX+ is more than just a mouthful. It comes equipped with cutting-edge features like a Bosch six-axis IMU and Showa semi-active electronic suspension. This means you’ll experience unparalleled control and performance on the streets.

If you’re looking for a motorcycle that combines the best elements of sport-touring and adventure riding, then look no further. The 2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX+ is the bike for you. Don’t miss out on this game-changer.

The Japanese maker’s latest entry into the ADV-styled sport-touring segment is set to rival popular bikes such as the Kawasaki Versys 1000 SE LT, Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+, and the BMW S 1000 XR. These motorcycles take inspiration from ADV bikes in terms of seating position, suspension, and aesthetics, but are designed solely for street use. While the global market will offer a base model GSX-S1000GX without saddlebags and a centerstand to lower the price, the United States will only receive the more premium GX+ version, which includes color-matched saddlebags and a centerstand. Now, let’s dive into the Fast Facts.

The new GSX-S1000GX+ from Suzuki is their most advanced bike yet, and it’s packed with impressive features. With a six-axis IMU, CAN bus, and semi-active electronic suspension, this bike is truly ahead of its time. Suzuki has named their suspension system Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension, and it’s based on Showa’s EERA system. This system relies on data from the IMU and stroke sensors to calculate the perfect amount of damping for the bike’s fork and shock. It can make adjustments up to 1000 times per second, ensuring a smooth ride on any road surface. Not only that, but the shock’s spring preload is also automatically adjusted for optimal ride height. And to top it all off, an anti-dive system keeps the chassis stable, preventing any unwanted weight transfer when braking hard. All of these features come together to create a bike that is not only advanced but also incredibly capable.

The S1000 platform’s reliable aluminum twin-spar frame and steel-trellis subframe are back in action with the GX+. The GX+ model has some changes in geometry, including increased travel at 5.9 inches on both ends and a slightly adjusted rake compared to the GT. However, what remains the same is the sturdy twin-spar aluminum chassis that has its roots in the K5 GSX-R1000, offering riders a high level of confidence whether on the naked GSX-S1000 or the sport-touring GSX-S1000GT/GT+ motorcycles. The steel-trellis subframe is designed to accommodate passengers, and the matching color panniers have a capacity of 25.7 liters each, providing ample space to fit most full-face helmets.

The S1000GX+ offers four different ride modes that can be adjusted on the go. Similar to the other models in its lineup, the ride modes are divided into Active, Basic, Comfort, and a customizable User mode. Each preset mode modifies engine power, throttle mapping, TC, and suspension damping action. For riders who prefer to have complete control over all parameters, the User mode allows for fine-tuning. Additionally, riders can choose between three semi-active suspension settings – Hard, Medium, and Soft – which can be easily changed using the left-thumb switchgear and a 6.5-inch TFT display.

The GSX-R1000/R superbike boasts an impressive array of rider aids, making it Suzuki’s most advanced bike to date. Not only does it come equipped with cornering ABS, lean-angle-sensitive traction control, and wheelie control, but it also introduces a brand new electronic aid called Roll Torque Control (RTC). RTC is a game-changer, acting as a supplementary traction control system that adjusts engine torque based on the bike’s lean angle and speed. By calculating the optimal amount of power and acceleration needed for each corner, RTC ensures that riders can push their limits without sacrificing safety. With the GSX-R1000/R, you’ll experience the peace of mind of having not just one, but two layers of protection against traction loss.

The GX+ takes ergonomics to the next level, giving you a crossover personality that is both clever and comfortable. We’ve designed the cockpit to offer more room and a relaxed riding position, so you can ride for longer without feeling cramped or fatigued.

Compared to our GT machines, the GX+ boasts broader handlebars that are positioned 2.2 inches closer to the rider. This not only enhances control and maneuverability but also gives you a more natural feel while riding.

We’ve also made sure to prioritize cornering clearance by equipping the GX+ with long-travel suspension. This means you can confidently take on corners without worrying about scraping or bottoming out.

To accommodate the adventurous spirit of the GX+, we’ve raised the seat height by 1.4 inches, giving you a commanding position on the road. This is in line with the taller stance of ADV-styled motorcycles and adds to the overall experience of riding the GX+.

But we didn’t stop there. We’ve added a larger upper fairing and a three-position adjustable windscreen with a two-inch sweep. This means you have more control over your aerodynamics and can tailor your riding experience to suit your preferences.

For those who prefer a shorter screen, we also offer one as an accessory through Suzuki Parts & Accessories. This way, you can customize your GX+ even further to make it truly yours.

And to ensure maximum comfort and reduce fatigue, we’ve rubber-mounted all the touchpoints – the footpegs, handlebars, and mirrors. This helps absorb vibrations and provides a smoother, more enjoyable ride.

With the GX+, we’ve thought of everything to make your riding experience as clever as possible. Combining innovative design, ergonomic features, and attention to detail, the GX+ sets a new standard in crossover motorcycles.

Suzuki brings back its classic and beloved 999cc K5 engine. This engine has been reworked and updated by Suzuki engineers since its introduction in 2005, and its impressive 18-year tenure on the market is even more remarkable as it meets the strict Euro 5+ emissions standards. It has certainly aged well and now has enough experience to do things like vote, join the military, and enjoy a night out at strip clubs. With 150 horsepower at 11,000 rpm and 78 ft-lb at 9250 rpm, this engine knows how to party. It makes you wonder why Suzuki hasn’t used this same engine in other models, like the 2017+ GSX-R1000/R with its VVT technology.

The smooth six-speed transmission comes with an up/down quickshifter that is truly impressive. Based on previous experiences with the quickshifter, it rivals the performance of much more expensive motorcycles. And if you’re not a fan of the quickshifter, don’t worry – you can simply turn it off, along with the traction control.

You have the option to easily connect the dash to your iOS or Android device using the free Suzuki mySPIN app and Bluetooth. Apart from the standard features like contacts, phone, calendar, and music, the integrated Maps app on mySPIN also allows for GPS displays through third-party apps.

The starting price for the 2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX+ is $18,499. In the US, the GX+ model comes with saddlebags and a centerstand as standard features, and the + cannot be chosen separately. These features are highly appreciated in the sport-touring category. While other markets may have a few color choices, we only have the Pearl Emerald Green color option. Dealers expect the bike to arrive in spring 2024.
