Suzuki GSX-S1000GX

November 9, 2023

The new Suzuki GSX-S1000GX falls right in between sport tourers and adventure tourers. The GX has the power source of the GSX-S1000GT and offers the design of the V-STROM 1050. It is the ultimate, sporty motorcycle that can take you in any direction.

Suzuki GSX-S1000GX streamlined

Aerodynamics play an important role in the GX. For this reason, the machine was developed in the wind tunnel down to the smallest details. Among other things, that approach resulted in a unique windbreak that provides the necessary wind protection. The windshield is adjustable in three steps, increasing or decreasing the height by 43 mm. Hand guards and fairings also reduce drag and provide better protection from wind and rain.

Differences from Suzuki GSX-S1000GT

The differences from the GSX-S1000GT are significant. The GX, for example, has a larger suspension travel (150 mm front and rear) that provides more ground clearance, as well as a more straight-up seating position. The handlebars are 55 mm closer to the rider compared to the GT. It is also 50 mm wider. Compared to the GT, the saddle is 15 mm thicker for the rider and 10 mm thicker for the passenger. The seat height is 845 mm.

152-hp four-cylinder

Like the GSX-S1000 and the GSX-S1000GT, the GX has a powerful 999cc four-cylinder engine. The block excels with its high torque and power in a wide rev range. The liquid-cooled four-in-line produces 106 Nm of torque at 9,250 rpm. Peak power is 112 kW (152 hp) at 11,000 rpm.
