The 2023 GSX-S1000GT intelligently combines the championship performance of its GSX-R1000-based engine with a nimble, lightweight chassis to provide riders with an exciting and comfortable GT riding experience. Here is a Grand Tourer with sportbike level functionality, avantgarde styling, truly functional integrated side cases, plus an extensive selection of optional accessories.
More than a successor to the prior generation GSX-S1000F, the GSX-S1000GT+ is the motorcycle that performance-minded touring enthusiasts desire, whether heading out on a long trip with a passenger on board or enjoying a sporty solo romp up a twisty ribbon of asphalt. The GSX-S1000GT+’s performance is a revelation, its appearance breathtaking, and the Suzuki mySPIN connectivity application integrated into the full-color TFT instrument panel provides easy access to contacts, maps, music, and phone communication.
Features may include:
The GSX-S1000GT’s long-stroke GSX-R engine has been refined to produce a broad, smooth torque curve through the full rev-range, with impressive peak horsepower.
The GSX-S1000GT provides predictable and controllable throttle response, with abundant top-end power to provide the rider an exciting riding experience.
Like a GSX-R1000, the GSX-S1000GT's race-proven, six-speed, close-ratio transmission features vertically staggered shafts to reduce overall engine length.
The latest version of the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) clutch is fitted to the GSX-S1000GT. More than ever before, the SCAS clutch increases plate pressure under acceleration, yet acts as a slipper clutch to smooth the engine response during engine braking and corner entry.
Suzuki’s proven, twin-spar aluminum frame helps to ensure nimble handling and great road holding ability. The main spars are positioned straight from the steering head to the swingarm pivot, which promotes higher rigidity and lighter weight.
Connected to the swingarm is a link-type rear suspension, with a single shock absorber that features seven-way adjustable spring preload with rebound-damping force adjustment.
