Suzuki Unveils the All-New GSX-S1000GX and GSX-8R



Suzuki Motor Corporation has unveiled the all-new crossover model, GSX-S1000GX and sport model GSX-8R at the EICMA 2023 (Milan Show), which is held in Milan, Italy from 7 to 12 November 2023*1. Sales for the GSX-S1000GX will start from December 2023, and the GSX-8R from January 2024 globally, primarily in Europe and North America.

*1 Press days: 7 to 8 November. Public days: 9 to 12 November.


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 sport bike, combined with a modern design that pursues a comfortable upright riding position for touring.
The GSX-S1000GX is Suzuki’s first motorcycle which 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. 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.
