Suzuki Takes on 2024 With the Stunning GSX-8R and Game-Changing GSX-S1000GX+

Both models are specifically positioned to inspire and engage riders with new thinking, precise engineering and rider-driven features

Suzuki Motor USA continues its impressive run of new 2024 models with two more electrifying and important new products: the GSX-8R sport bike and the GSX-S1000GX+ sport crossover. Each model plays an important role in the Suzuki product line, both specifically positioned to inspire and engage riders with new thinking, precise engineering and rider-driven features to make them leaders in their respective classes.

The GSX-8R, the new standard of sport, combines cutting-edge sport bike styling and real-world performance into a rider-friendly, exciting package. With progressive features such as the Showa SFF-BP fork and link-style rear suspension, full fairing design and a sporty riding position, the 8R takes the unrivaled GSX-8S platform and gives it a sporty twist. This new model sets a new standard of sport with an exciting new expression of sport bike appeal, satisfying sport performance and optimized comfort.

Bred from the best attributes of the GSX-S1000GT+ and V-STROM 1050, the all-new GSX-S1000GX+ is the supreme sport crossover, bridging the gap between segments and offering a comfortable ride while delivering aggressive superbike performance and sporty looks. The GSX-S1000GX+ takes the crossover segment by storm with new technology never before seen on a Suzuki. The GX+ introduces a whole new level of suspension performance by introducing Suzuki Advance Electronic Suspension (SAES) — Suzuki’s first electronic suspension — and by adopting Suzuki’s original new Suzuki Road Adaptive Stabilization (SRAS) system. Coupled with included side cases and center stand, the GX+ is positioned to be the sport crossover motorcycle that shatters expectations on how thrilling and versatile one bike can be.
