The 2024 GSX-S1000GX+ shares its core engine and chassis architecture with the Grand Touring GSX-S1000GT+, plus the ergonomics and stance of the Adventure Touring V-STROM 1050 and debuts new features and advanced functions that position GX+ as Suzuki’s innovative Sport Crossover model. The GX+ provides superbike-level performance, confidence-inspiring technology, optimized comfort, and connectivity for a premium sport touring experience.
The GSX-S1000GX+’s long suspension achieves a new level of performance through the introduction of the Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) and by adopting the new, innovative Suzuki Road Adaptive Stabilization (SRAS) system. These technologies make the GX+ more comfortable and manageable on roads ranging from urban streets, concrete highways, and uneven, winding mountain roads.
The GSX-S1000GX+’s updated Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) is a comprehensive collection of advanced electronic rider assist systems. The GX+ is the first GSX-S motorcycle to adopt the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector Alpha (SDMS-α) system and includes these other new features:
- Smart TLR Control utilizes the Suzuki Traction Control System with Lift Limiter and Roll Torque Control, aiding motorcycle performance under diverse and varying conditions.
- Active Damping Control offers four electronically-controlled damping settings – Hard, Medium, Soft, and a customizable User setting – to best match the SDMS-α riding modes or the rider’s chosen preference.
- Electronic Rear Suspension Preload Settings offer a push-button choice of four modes to tune the shock absorber to the GX+’s current load requirements.
- Suzuki Road Adaptive Stabilization activates automatically when riding on uneven surfaces to provide a smooth ride with a soft, controllable throttle response.
- Smart Cruise Control continues to operate when using the Bi-directional Quick Shift system’s clutch-free shifting, making the GX+ easier to operate on long rides.
With over ten S.I.R.S. features, the GX+ allows riders to select the settings that best suit their level of skill and experience, the passenger or cargo load, and the road conditions.
The GSX-S1000GX+ has a 6.5-inch full-color TFT instrument panel that is easy to view and understand. Using the panel, the rider may easily tune the GX+’s S.I.R.S. settings, including the electronic suspension’s Automatic and Manual Suspension Modes, and Active Damping Control Levels. In addition to keeping the rider fully aware of the bike’s systems and operating status, the TFT panel uses Suzuki’s mySPINTM smartphone connectivity application to display maps, phone calls, contacts, and music library for excellent convenience and enjoyment.
A high-performance 999cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, in-line four-cylinder engine based upon Suzuki’s championship-winning GSX-R architecture effortlessly powers the GSX-S1000GX+. Every aspect of its performance and durability has been refined to deliver pure, reliable power. The engine particularly shines in the mid- to high-RPM range that benefits a sport touring ride. Surprisingly quick with outstanding rideability, the GSX-S1000GX+ is planet-friendly by complying with worldwide emissions standards.
Starting with an aluminum, twin-spar frame and a swingarm derived from GSX-R technology, including the new Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) system and mix in the V-STROM 1050’s peerless rider ergonomics, yields the GSX-S1000GX+’s chassis that is ideal for sport-oriented Crossover use. Suzuki’s experience with Sport Touring and Adventure Touring models, coupled with its commitment to innovative engineering, makes the GSX-S1000GX+ Sport Crossover easy and enjoyable to ride.
*The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider's throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
**Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
The GSX-S1000GX+’s long-stroke GSX-R engine has been refined to produce a broad, smooth torque curve through the full rev-range, with increased peak horsepower.
- The GSX-S1000GX+ provides predictable and controllable throttle response, with abundant top-end power to ensure the rider an exciting riding experience.
Compared to the prior generation GSX-S1000 engine, the GX+’s camshaft profiles decrease lift and valve overlap, not only to improve emissions but balance the engine’s performance and rideability.
- The valve springs are calibrated to the unique camshafts to aid performance and improve durability.
The cam chain tensioner and tension adjuster were designed with select materials to reduce friction and improve durability.
Suzuki’s legendary Twin Swirl Combustion Chamber (TSCC) design is machined into the cylinder head that, with the flat-top pistons, achieves an optimal 12.2:1 compression ratio that helps deliver a broad spread of power throughout the entire rev range.
Aluminum pistons, engineered with use of Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis, are cast for optimal rigidity and weight.
- Ventilation holes between the cylinders reduce pumping loss within the crankcase so the engine can deliver more power and torque.
- Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)–plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.
The engine case finish presents a strong image of quality, while the design of the engine covers (clutch, stator, and drive sprocket) feature a smooth shape and metal-like finish.
Electronic throttle bodies are employed on the GSX-S1000GX+, so engine response is smoother and more controlled, especially when the rider is applying the throttle to accelerate out of a corner.
- These Ride-by-Wire throttle bodies help provide precise control for the new Suzuki Drive Mode Selector - Alpha (SDMS-α), Suzuki Road Adaptive Stabilization (SRAS), Smart Cruise Control systems, and more.
- Long-tip, 10-hole fuel injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization, while the automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) improves cold starting and stabilizes the engine idle.
- Compared to the GSX-S1000GT+, the GX+’s Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) play was adjusted to slightly increase the amount of force required to rotate the throttle grip for better feedback to the rider.
The air cleaner’s internal structure contributes to the GSX-S1000GX+’s strong engine performance while producing the exciting intake sound for which the GSX-S1000 is renowned.
- The air cleaner’s external shape was created to match the large capacity fuel tank (5.0 US gallons).
The GSX-S1000GX+’s stainless steel, 4-2-1 exhaust system has a centralized mass, under-chassis design with sharp looks, and an exciting note.
- Behind the header pipes, the mid-chamber contains a second catalytic converter to help ensure emissions compliance, a low center-of-gravity, and good exhaust flow to help the engine deliver a strong low- to mid-range punch, with an exciting rush to redline.
A Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve manages flow from the mid-chamber into the muffler, while the sculpted muffler has a pleasing appearance that is uncommon to under-chassis exhausts and creates an exciting, distinctive sound that will not overpower the rider’s and passenger’s senses.
- With catalytic converters located in the mid-chamber, GSX-S1000GX+ riders can fit an EPA or CARB-compliant silencer from suppliers such as Yoshimura R & D, USA.
The digital ignition fires iridium-type spark plugs which increase spark strength and combustion efficiency, contributing to higher power, a more linear throttle response, easier engine start-up, and a more stable idle. These quality components also last longer than conventional spark plugs.
The fairing and radiator shrouds efficiently guide cooling air to the high-capacity, curved radiator.
- A thermostatically controlled cooling fan helps ensure lower coolant temperatures when riding in slow-moving traffic. The design also deflects warm air away from the rider at speed.
Additional heat is removed from the engine via the use of a lightweight and compact liquid-cooled oil cooler (like those used on certain GSX-R models).
Like a GSX-R1000, the GSX-S1000GX+'s race-proven, six-speed, close-ratio transmission features vertically staggered shafts to reduce overall engine length.
When shifting with the clutch or using the Bi-directional Quick Shift system, the GX+’s precise shift linkage helps the rider easily and quickly select the best gear for the riding conditions.
- The gearshift cam, shift shaft, and clutch release cam were designed to support the function of the Bi-directional Quick Shift system and still provide precise shifting action with superb feedback to the rider.
- A unique shift sensor sends shifter movement data to the ECM, so the Bi-directional Quick Shift system responds to the rider’s actions, as this design maintains precise shifting feel at the shift lever.
The latest version of the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) clutch is fitted to the GSX-S1000GX+. 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.
- This large-diameter, wet, multi-plate clutch uses a precise, cable-activated release, providing the rider with a light pull and superb friction-point feel.
The strong, 525 drive chain uses O-rings to preserve internal lubrication, so power is transmitted smoothly and quietly.
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.
The GX+'s new sub-frame provides several benefits. It provides strong and secure attachment points for the side cases. Secondly, the short distance between the upper and lower rails makes it possible to increase the thickness of the rear seat for greater passenger comfort. Additionally, the exposed trellis design adds to the GSX-S1000GX+’s striking looks.
The sturdy aluminum-alloy swingarm comes straight from the GSX-R1000 and is ruggedly braced, which helps ensure great road-holding ability while enhancing its contemporary superbike looks.
With more fork stroke and rear wheel travel than the GSX-S1000GT+, the GSX-S1000GX+ has an upright riding position like the V-STROM 1050 and thereby provides greater comfort, even when touring for long distances. The longer suspension can absorb larger bumps when riding over uneven road surfaces.
- Like the fork and shock absorber fitted to the GSX-S1000 sports roadster, the suspension spring rates, and damping force setting are tuned specifically for the GSX-S1000GT+.
- Model Fork stroke Rear wheel travel
GSX-S1000GX+ 5.9 in. (150 mm) 5.9 in. (150 mm)
GSX-S1000GT+ 4.7 in. (120 mm) 5.1 in. (130 mm)
V-STROM 1050 6.3 in. (160 mm) 6.3 in. (160 mm)
See the Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) features section for more information on the GSX-S1000GX+’s electronic suspension and its extraordinary capabilities.
The taller suspension with its extended travel combines with the new seat design to increase the distance between the rider’s hip point and foot point by 0.6 in. (15 mm), which increases comfort by reducing the amount of knee bend. This results in a comfortable upright riding position for touring long distances or heading out for a sporty run.
When developing the GX+’s ergonomically sound Crossover Touring riding position, the design team set the handlebar grips 2.16 in. (55 mm) closer to the rider than on the GSX-S1000GT+. This allows the rider a more upright posture, which enhances comfort. Overall, the new cast aluminum handlebars are 2.0 in. (50 mm) wider and feature a 0.55 in. (14 mm) wider grip placement, making them comfortable to grasp while reducing steering effort.
Unique to GSX-S1000 models, the lightweight TRP six-spoke, cast-aluminum wheels in black look great and contribute to the GSX-S1000GX+’s nimble handling and sporty performance.
Like the tires fitted to the GSX-S1000GT+ grand tourer, Dunlop’s Roadsport 2 radial tires (120/70ZR17 at the front and a wide 190/50ZR17 at the rear) were custom-engineered to perform optimally on the GSX-S1000GX+, providing great grip in dry or wet conditions, faster warm-up, and long tread life.
These wheels and tires work in harmony with the front and rear settings for the Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) to maximize comfort on long rides while helping to achieve the great grip, stability, and agility needed to support both long-distance touring and aggressive sport performance.
The fuel tank boasts a capacity of 5.0 US gallons (19 L) with a design that makes it appear compact. Its large capacity combines with the engine’s excellent fuel efficiency providing the GSX-S1000GX+ with a good riding range per tank of fuel.
The dual, front brakes use a pair of Brembo Monobloc calipers, with four 32mm opposed pistons paired with fully floating 310mm stainless steel discs.
The rear brake has a 240mm stainless steel disc with a Nissin single-piston caliper.
The GSX-S1000GX+ is equipped with a compact Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)** to help match stopping force to the available traction.
The GSX-S1000GX+ is fitted with a sturdy and practical standard-equipment rear carrier constructed of lightweight aluminum. Solid grab bars on each side of the carrier provide the passenger with a good place to grasp the motorcycle.
- The grab bars were designed to not interfere when removing or installing the side cases.
- Rear carrier load capacity: 13.2 lbs. (6.0 kg)
The GSX-S1000GX+ is fitted with a matte black, tapered cast-aluminum floating handlebar. Rubber mounts in the upper fork clamp and handlebar brackets reduce the amount of vibration transmitted to the rider’s hands, improving comfort on long rides or when touring.
- Rider seat height: 31.9 in. (810 cm); approximate passenger seat height 34.2 in. (870 cm)
- The handlebar is a new design specifically created for the GX+. This handlebar has a thicker t5.2 material thickness for greater rigidity and features a 0.5 in. (14 mm) wider grip and an overall handlebar width of 34.5 in. (877 mm).
The standard-equipment knuckle covers (hand guards) help protect the rider’s hands from the elements, including rain, wind, and cold. The angular covers accentuate the visual appeal of the GSX- S1000GX+ as a serious Crossover model ready and capable for any journey.
The handlebar-mounted mirrors feature rubber bushes to minimize vibration, so the rear view is clearer. The mirror design matches the GX+’s styling.
The GSX-S1000GX+’s rider and passenger seats have a sporty design that also increases comfort on long rides. Both have a weather-resistant cover material that balances grip with freedom of movement.
- The rider’s seat shape further expands freedom of movement and has a foam cushion 0.6 in. (15 mm) thicker than the seat on the GSX-S1000GT+. With a flatter shape than the GT+ seat, the foam is also firmer for better support during long rides.
- Rider seat height: 33.3 in. (845 mm).
- Stepped to provide an unobstructed view over the rider’s shoulder, the GX+’s pillion seat is wider by 1.0 in. (26 mm) and 0.4 in. (10 mm) thicker than the GT’s seat. The seat’s design boosts passenger comfort and integrates well with the rear rack’s grab bar design that does not intrude into the passenger’s seating area.
Optional seats are available for the GSX-S1000GX+:
- The Low Seat reduces the rider’s seat height by approximately 0.6 in. (15 mm).
- This low seat option features a sporty and attractive design that maximizes comfort on long rides. The seat is covered in a surface skin that helps provide positive grip and is shaped to offer freedom of movement when enjoying a sporty ride
- The Premium Seat features include a sporty and attractive design with a luxurious touch and a new double-layer cushion construction that helps maximize comfort. Employing technology being used by Suzuki for the first time as either standard equipment or an accessory on a production model, the seat is constructed from two layers of molded urethane foam that differ in level of firmness.
- The seat is engineered to let infrared rays penetrate, thereby helping to keep its surface 14% cooler+ compared to the original seat from the sun.
- Red double-stitching around the upper seam gives the seat a custom handmade look that goes well with the GX+’s body color and further enhances the GX+’s sporty appeal.
The aluminum pegs of both the rider and passenger footrests are covered with vibration-absorbing rubber. This reduces the vibration transmitted to the feet, which improves comfort, especially on long rides.
- Both pairs of footrests are positioned lower, reducing bend at the rider’s and passenger’s knees and ankles, further improving comfort.
- The rear footrest location provides ample clearance for the passenger’s legs when the side cases are installed.
The black finish on the footrest mounts, gear shifter, rear brake, and both hand levers match the performance nature of the motorcycle.
- The front brake lever features a multi-step adjuster that permits quick modification of the lever’s distance from the grip.
The standard equipment center stand simplifies machine maintenance while offering another parking option for the GX+.
**Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
The GSX-S1000GX+ is a formidable new Luxury Crossover model that combines the advantages of a long-stroke suspension with the benefits of electronic suspension performance. In fact, the GX+ is the first Suzuki motorcycle to adopt the Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES). Developed and supplied by SHOWA, the EERA® suspension is an electronic version of the SFF-CATM inverted telescopic fork and BFRC-lite® link-style single shock absorber.
- The EERA® suspension uses vehicle and speed information from the IMU and wheel speed sensors, plus information from high-precision stroke sensors compactly integrated into both the front and rear suspension to instantly determine optimal damping by the suspension stroke speed and riding conditions. This nearly instantaneous electronic feedback and adjustment yields practically ideal ride quality.
- Taking advantage of this technology are proprietary programs such as the Suzuki Floating Ride Control (SFRC) and Suzuki Velocity Dependent Control (SVDC) that are tuned to provide the GX+’s suspension mode (Hard/Medium/Soft) settings. This gives an extremely comfortable and controllable riding experience, offering a wide range of electronic control settings suitable for a Crossover motorcycle that can be used for sport riding or long-distance touring.
- Additionally, SAES operates more intelligently than conventional systems because its basic settings are managed by SDMS-α's integrated riding modes, providing greater comfort that helps any rider to fully leverage the performance potential of the GX+.
The Differences between Conventional and Electronic Suspension
- On conventional (mechanical) suspension systems, the amount of damping can only be adjusted manually, and the amount of damping depends entirely on the amount of oil moved by the speed of the suspension’s damping piston stroke.
- In contrast, SAES adds an electronically-controlled hydraulic valve to the damping force-generating unit, thereby electronically controlling the damping adjustment mechanism without compromising the basic performance of conventional mechanical suspension systems. This allows a wider range of variable damping force settings to better cover everything from sport riding to comfortable touring, and to better respond to varying load and road surface conditions.
Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) – Front
- The right fork has a Stroke Sensor inside that measures the current piston position to the nearest 1/1000 of a millimeter and adjusts suspension damping 1000 times per second, according to the current stroke volume and stroke speed it senses.
- The left fork leg contains the damping cartridge. An electronically operated solenoid valve on the left fork cap affects fluid flow to adjust both the rebound and compression damping force. The SAES continually adjusts the fork’s damping force by changing the settings on the fly.
- The fork does not have electronic spring preload adjustment (as does the rear shock absorber). Both the right and left fork legs contain coil springs, and the spring preload setting can be manually adjusted using an adjuster on the right fork axle holder.
Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) – Rear
- Preload adjustment for the rear suspension is electronically controlled as the shock is equipped with a hydraulic spring collar that automatically changes the rear preload setting, allowing the setting for the rear suspension to be changed independently.
- Visibly mounted under the subframe is a motor unit that can pressurize or release hydraulic fluid at the preload collar, changing the amount of spring preload. A stroke sensor monitors the spring's current position and is key to the shock spring’s ability to change preload as directed by the motor unit.
- An electronically operated solenoid valve on the shock body affects fluid flow to adjust both the rebound and compression damping force. The SAES continually adjusts the shock’s damping force by changing the settings on the fly.
Suspension Control Unit (SCU)
- Mounted to the sub-frame, the SCU directly controls the fork and shock damping force solenoid valves and the shock spring preload motor unit. Using the information displayed on the TFT panel and adjusted using the left handlebar switch, the rider sends electronic suspension commands to the ECM where they are then influenced by the Internal Measurement Unit (IMU) and other sensors that are then transferred to the SCU that controls the suspension in real-time.
Original Programs Integrated into SAES
There are some SAES functions that are included on the GSX-S1000GX+ due to the addition of an Internal Measurement Unit (IMU):
- The Suzuki Floating Ride Control (SFRC); a program that further improves tracking and comfort in response to road surface changes.
- The Suzuki Velocity Dependent Control (SVDC); is a program that monitors vehicle speed and optimizes suspension settings for that speed.
- Suzuki Deceleration Damping Control (SDDC); a program, which smoothly converges changes in vehicle attitude due to braking and controls damping force to achieve an ideal pitch motion.
Suzuki Floating Ride Control (SFRC)
Input from the IMU plus the front and rear suspension stroke sensors is used to monitor the motion of the motorcycle’s sprung weight in relation to an imaginary reference point directly above the motorcycle from which the front and rear are suspended in theory, as though hanging from a hook in the sky. In turn, the SCU (Suspension Control Unit) adjusts the damper settings on the fly to help keep the seat and handlebars stable while the wheels and tires absorb the bumps on the road, helping improve maneuverability and comfort.
- The advanced system employed by the GSX-S1000GX+ is set to respond optimally at once to three types of motion and thereby respond to a wide range of riding conditions.
- Though SFRC is always active, and it is set to intervene only minimally when on smooth surfaces so as not to effect on-road performance. Its effect becomes stronger when riding over uneven surfaces, but even then, it does not attempt to completely level out the ride. This is because the rider perceives changes in the bike’s posture and intuitively uses those movements to control it. Too smooth a ride would inhibit this feeling of connection between the rider, the motorcycle, and the road.
SFRC adjusts damping force to match Active Damping Control’s (Hard, Medium, or Soft) settings. These settings are SDMS-α's integrated riding modes (see the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S. section for more information).
Suzuki Velocity Dependent Control (SVDC)
- SAES also incorporates Suzuki’s SVDC program which, under normal operation, helps the front and rear suspension reproduce the damping characteristics of each specified mode according to the suspension stroke speed.
- However, this program introduces the parameter of vehicle speed data received from the CAN bus to optimize damping control to match the current speed, thereby achieving positive handling at low and high speeds.
Suzuki Deceleration Damping Control (SDDC)
- As with SVDC, the SDDC program reproduces the damping characteristics defined by each specified mode under normal operation. However, SDDC applies deceleration G-force as a parameter based on IMU data and then sets optimal damping force so that vehicle attitude changes caused by braking occur smoothly. This provides a moderate pitch motion that does not interfere with the rider's action when braking, helping deliver comfort and confidence.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector Alpha (SDMS-α)
The GSX-S1000GX+ follows Suzuki's flagship sportbike, the Hayabusa; in adopting the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector Alpha (SDMS-α) system which provides integrated management of several of the S.I.R.S.’ advanced electronic rider assist features.
- The three integrated, preset riding modes of SDMS-α control power output characteristics, as well as the level of Traction Control (with integrated Lift Limiter and Roll Torque Control) and Active Damping Control (with Suzuki Floating Ride Control).
- Additionally, Suzuki’s original new Suzuki Road Adaptive Stabilization (SRAS) feature works in conjunction with SDMS-α to seamlessly switch between settings that better smooth out the bumps when the GX+ rides over uneven surfaces, and those that prevent interfering with positive response when riding on good roads.
- The three factory preset modes (A, B, and C) provide the rider with a quick and effortless way to alter the GSX-S1000GX+’s power delivery characteristics to match riding style or adjust to changing weather or road conditions.
- Mode A (Active) is for active, sporty use that delivers the sharpest throttle response as the rider opens the throttle. Mode A’s torque characteristics are finely tuned to deliver exciting acceleration when opening the throttle aggressively, such as enjoying a sporty run on clean, winding roads, in clear weather.
- In Mode A the engine power output mode is set to level “1”, the traction control system is set to level “2”, and the suspension’s active damping control level to “Hard”.
- Mode B (Basic) is for general, all-around riding, as it features a softer throttle response and a more linear power delivery curve as the rider opens the throttle. Intended to be the ideal setting for touring, this mode aims to make the GX+ more controllable and instill confidence in the rider when accelerating and offers a good fit for a wide range of riding styles and road conditions.
- In Mode B the engine power output mode is set to level “2”, the traction control system is set to level “4”, and the suspension’s active damping control level to “Medium”.
- Mode C (Comfort) aims to prioritize comfort and controllability by providing a softer throttle response and gentler torque characteristics, with power increasing in a directly linear fashion as the throttle is opened. This mode is useful when riding on wet or slippery surfaces, or riding with a passenger and gear, or when the rider desires a relaxing, comfortable ride home after a long outing.
- In Mode C the engine power output mode is set to level “3”, the traction control system is set to level “6”, and the suspension’s active damping control level to “Soft”.
- Using the mode and select switches on the left handlebar, the rider may change SDMS-α modes while riding. The mode settings are clearly displayed on the TFT instrument panel.
The Power Mode feature lets the rider select between three levels that deliver different engine power characteristics to match the road or weather conditions or the rider’s preference.
Each level’s power delivery characteristic is noticeable when using the throttle. Each level was custom-tuned and thoroughly tested to make the GX+’s overall riding experience more enjoyable.
- Power Mode level 1 provides the sharpest response as the throttle is opened. Tuned to deliver exciting acceleration and fully leverage the engine’s power, it is well-suited for enjoying a sporty run on clean, winding roads, in clear weather.
- Power Mode level 2 produces the same peak power output as level 1 but features a more linear torque curve with softer throttle response. The aim is to deliver a satisfying balance of settings that make a good fit for a broad range of riding styles and road conditions.
- Power Mode level 3 prioritizes comfort and controllability by offering the softest throttle response and more gentle torque characteristics. This setting is a good choice when riding long distances, or when carrying a passenger and gear.
Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS)
The five-mode Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS) continuously monitors front- and rear-wheel speed, engine RPM, throttle position, and gear position to adjust engine output to prevent undesired rear wheel spin, while helping maintain traction and power delivery to the road.
Compared to the five-mode system on the GSX-S1000GT, this seven-mode version of STCS features a wider selection of sensitivity to better accommodate a variety of riding conditions, styles, and rider experience.
- The higher the mode number, the quicker STCS intervenes to limit rear-wheel spin.
- The system can also be turned OFF when desired.
The STCS modes are displayed on the TFT instrument panel and can be changed on-the-fly, using the left handlebar switch. When the system is trimming power to help prevent wheel spin, the TC icon LED on the right edge of the instrument panel will illuminate and flash.
The GSX-S1000GX+ adopts Lift Limiter, which brings added peace of mind to riders by helping prevent the front wheel from lifting off the ground when accelerating. With its origins in the Suzuki MotoGP effort, Lift Limiter works silently in the background, with its settings being determined by the STCS level setting.
- The GX+’s ECM monitors engine speed (RPM), throttle position, gear position, and clutch status (by monitoring the clutch switch) and processes that data along with input from the front and rear wheel speed sensors and the IMU to determine the appropriate amount of engine power to deliver (by electronic throttle valve operation).
- Thorough development and careful testing went into Lift Limiter feature, so its range of function balances performance and front wheel lift reduction.
- A flashing “LF” mark appears on the TFT meter panel to inform the rider when the Lift Limiter is functioning.
- The rider cannot adjust or disable the Lift Limiter feature.
Roll Torque Control
Roll Torque Control, a Suzuki first, is an intelligent feature that adjusts engine power output, so the motorcycle’s speed is optimal for a given corner.
- Using vehicle position data from the IMU and road speed information (from wheel speed sensors) the system calculates the bike’s lean angle and speed to predetermine the power output and acceleration that is ideal for the corner.
- The system reduces engine torque output before the motorcycle exceeds the amount of power the system had calculated was necessary to clear the corner effectively. This additional layer of preemptive action operates silently in the background, as its settings are determined by the STCS sensitivity level.
Active Damping Control
The Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) for the GSX-1000GX+ offers four electronically controlled damping force settings – “Hard”, “Medium”, “Soft” plus a customizable “User” setting.
Each mode is controlled to reproduce the specified damping characteristics in accordance with the stroke speed of the suspension. This feature will change the damping force in both the front fork and rear shock absorber.
The settings change automatically in accordance with the SDMS-α mode chosen by the rider:
- Hard for SDMS-α’s A mode
- Medium for SDMS-α’s B mode
- Soft for SDMS-α’s C mode
The rider can also manually change how SDMS-α applies the respective damping force settings. For example, in a User Mode Setting the rider can elect to have SDMS-α A mode use the Medium, Soft or User damping setting rather than the default Hard setting.
- In addition to the basic User Mode Setting, the rider can independently adjust the front and rear suspension damping force settings by ±3 increments after selecting between a base setting of Hard, Medium, or Soft.
Suzuki Road Adaptive Stabilization (SRAS)
The Suzuki Road Adaptive Stabilization (SRAS) is Suzuki's original program that detects uneven road surfaces based on input from the IMU and wheel speed sensors. On normal road surfaces, the GX uses suspension settings that emphasize responsiveness.
- When the SRAS detects an uneven road surface, SRAS automatically triggers stronger Suzuki Floating Ride Control (SFRC) to help smooth out the ride and adjusts the Electronic Throttle Valve settings to deliver a softer, more controllable throttle response.
- When SRAS is activated, its level of response is based on the Power Mode level, Traction Control level, and the Active damping Control Level.
- When the GX+ returns to a smooth road surface, SRAS deactivates and SFRC returns to a setting that does not interfere with on-road dynamic performance.
- The adaptive nature of the SRAS program means it can switch between high and low amounts of ride and throttle adjustments, depending on the road surface.
- Just as SRAS enables comfortable riding on uneven surfaces, it can enhance sporty riding on normal surfaces. This makes the system unique, as it provides performance only offered by Suzuki.
Automatic Rear Suspension Modes
The GSX-S1000GX+’s rear suspension’s spring preload settings are electronically controlled, making it easy for the rider to view the setting on the TFT instrument panel and then use a handlebar switch to quickly choose between one of the four available modes they find the one best suited to the conditions or preference.
The rear suspension also has a user-friendly AUTO mode that allows the rider to easily enjoy the recommended automatic settings.
- When set to AUTO, the system calculates the current load weight based on the rear suspension stroke and preload position and automatically adjusts the front and rear damping force settings. This improves the movement of sprung mass under load and further stabilizes ride comfort under load conditions.
- In addition to the basic AUTO setting, the rider can independently adjust the front and rear suspension spring preload settings by ±3 increments.
- The AUTO mode also features Auto-Levelling, which detects changes in chassis posture when a passenger mounts or dismounts, or when gear is added or removed and based on the damper stroke position, responds by automatically adjusting the spring preload to maintain the appropriate posture.
Three manual modes:
- Single rider
- Single Rider & Gear
- Tandem (with or without gear)
- NOTE: Note that damping compensation is not active when using these three manual modes.
- In addition to the basic Manual Mode Settings, the rider can independently adjust the front and rear suspension spring preload settings by ±4 increments.
- Both the left and right legs of the fork have coil springs, and the fork spring preload can be adjusted manually using a single adjuster on the lower right fork (near the axle holder).
Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle System
The advanced Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle System leverages the capability of the GSX-S1000GX+’s 32-bit ECM and CAN-style wire harness to precisely control engine output relative to throttle action.
- This precision allows the throttle body action to be tuned to best match each of the SDMS-α modes. The result is a controllable, linear power delivery that responds.
- Electronic control of the throttle valves helps produce smooth shifting when using the Bi-directional Quick Shift System and enables the Smart Cruise Control to deliver precise speed control when engaged.
Bi-Directional Quick Shift System (QS)
The Bi-directional Quick Shift System (QS) allows the GSX-S1000GX+ rider to shift up or down quickly and easily, without operating the clutch or throttle.
- To ensure smooth upshifts, QS automatically interrupts power delivery just long enough to produce smooth, almost uninterrupted acceleration. When decelerating, the system automatically opens the throttle valves just enough to increase rpm and match engine speed to the next lower gear. The result is that this hands-free, automatic function combines seamlessly with engine braking to create a highly satisfying experience when downshifting.
- The Bi-directional QS works seamlessly in concert with SDMS-α to bring riders even greater riding enjoyment.
- Performance of the GSX-S1000GX+’s SACS-style, assist-and-slipper clutch ensures even smoother up- and down-shifts when using QS or manual clutch operation.
- A unique, shift position sensor sends shifter movement data to the ECM, so the Bi-directional Quick Shift system precisely responds to the rider’s actions.
Smart Cruise Control
The GSX-S1000GX+’s new Smart Cruise Control is a convenient system that allows the rider to maintain a set speed without operating the throttle. This helps reduce fatigue when touring long distances, particularly when traveling at constant speed on highways.
- The Smart Cruise Control permits the rider to shift up or down using the Bi-directional Quick Shift System without it canceling the cruise control. This makes the GX more comfortable, more convenient, and easier to operate on long rides by eliminating the need to reset cruise control after each shift.
- The main cruise control button is on the right handlebar switch.
- Cruise control can be set at speeds above 18 mph (30 km/h) when riding in second gear, or higher.
- The chosen setting appears on the TFT instrument screen in a distinct green font below the digital speedometer reading.
- Once engaged, the cruising speed can be easily adjusted upward or downward using the (UP or DOWN) select switch on the left handlebar.
- The handy “resume function” re-engages the system to smoothly accelerate to the most recent speed setting after canceling.
Motion Track Brake System
The Motion Track Brake System combines IMU-measured, spatial information of the GX+’s posture in conjunction with front and rear wheel speeds. This allows the ABS** to not only activate in a straight line but also when the vehicle is leaning or turning.
- By reducing the impact of sudden braking force, the GSX-S1000GX+ is less likely to try to push itself upright or lose traction while braking in a turn, instead maintaining the turning radius and lean angle to better follow the rider’s intended line through the corner.
- Even if the rider brakes heavily in a corner, the system assists in helping maintain chassis composure while the rider is stopping or slowing the motorcycle.
- The Motion Track Brake System cannot be switched off – it is always active.
Slope Dependent Control System
The Slope Dependent Control System prevents rear wheel lift when braking when traveling downhill. The ABS unit continually measures brake pressure while the IMU constantly monitors vehicle posture as the GSX-S1000GX is traveling downhill. When the rider operates a brake lever or pedal when riding downhill, the electronic control unit adjusts brake pressure to help prevent rear wheel lift.
Suzuki Easy Start System
The Suzuki Easy Start System lets the rider start the motorcycle with a simple press of the starter button. There is no need to pull in the clutch lever when the transmission is in neutral, and the starter motor automatically disengages, the instant the engine fires up.
Low RPM Assist System
The Low RPM Assist System seamlessly increases engine speed to smooth the power delivery when launching from a standing start or riding at low speeds, which helps ensure better operation in stop-and-go traffic. The system also minimizes the possibility of the rider stalling the motorcycle during take-off.
S.I.R.S. Supporting Technologies
- Internal Measurement Unit (IMU)
- Marking another first among the GSX-S series, the GX+ adopts an IMU from Bosch. This IMU integrates accelerometers and gyroscopes in a single compact package that measures angular rate and acceleration in six directions (through three axes) to constantly monitor pitch, roll, and yaw movement.
- Advanced features that employ data provided by the IMU include Lift Limiter, Roll Torque Control, Active Damping Control, SRAS, Motion Track Brake System, and Slope Dependent Control system.
- Controller Area Network (CAN bus)
- Key to the operation of the S.I.R.S., the GSX-S1000GX+ uses an interconnected information network instead of a conventional wiring harness.
- Because it requires fewer wires, this CAN bus wiring lets the GX+ be lighter and simpler and provides a way for the advanced components to have faster data transmission with the ECM.
- The CAN bus also provides a single connection point for diagnosing any errors that may occur throughout the entire network.
- Engine Control Module (ECM)
- The 32-bit, dual-core ECM has a fast processor and specific programming to efficiently operate the fuel-injection system, Ride-by-Wire throttle bodies, ignition, and other electrical features on the GSX-S1000GX+.
The oil-cooled, three-phase charging system provides ample power for the GSX-S1000GX+’s maintenance-free battery and ride-enhancing electronics.
Located to the left of the TFT instrument panel is a USB outlet that the rider can use to charge a smartphone or power other accessories, like a GPS for navigation.
An optional Suzuki Genuine Accessory power outlet that mounts under the passenger seat can be obtained from your Suzuki dealer.
The GSX-S1000GX+ is equipped with Suzuki’s innovative multifunction handlebar switches that are laid out to maximize operating ease and efficiency. A Local Interconnected Network (LIN) wire harness is used for fast and precise communication between the TFT instrument panel and the handlebar switches.
- The rider can use the TFT panel information and the mode/select switch on the left handlebar to change Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) settings.
- The right handlebar switch has a poly-function rocker switch that serves as both the engine stop- and start button that activates the Easy Start System. The switch also has a hazard flasher switch and Smart Cruise Control button.
The TFT screen, ECM, and all other electronics on the GSX-S1000GX+ were rigorously evaluated in an anechoic chamber to help ensure they are not susceptible to magnetic interference from external sources.
Matched well to the GSX-S1000GX+’s aerodynamic styling, the compact, stacked LED headlight assembly is centered low within the nose of the fairing.
Supplied by Koito®, the independent, high- and low-beam headlights use Mono-focus LED technology that shines light directly through a convex lens to brightly illuminate the road.
A pair of surface-emitting LED position light strips flank the headlights along the sides of the front fairing. These LEDs are the same type as used on luxury cars and feature an upswept angle and narrow slit design that adds to the distinctive look of GX+’s front face. This helps make the GSX-S1000GX+ more visible to pedestrians and other traffic.
Front LED turn signals within thin, arrow-shaped housings, extend outward from the upper fairing. At the rear, thin, arrow-like LED rear turn signals combine with an LED combination light to complement the stylish lines of the trim tail section and match well to the bike’s unique styling.
With lower electrical draw than conventional lighting, the LED headlights, position light, turn signals, and taillight compliment the GSX-S1000GX+’s sleek body, while improving both visibility and durability.
This high-quality TFT instrument panel is set into the inner fairing above the handlebars, for good visibility and protection from road debris. The panel features a scratch-resistant surface and an anti-reflective coating that improves visibility in bright light.
The brightness adjustable TFT display delivers a wide range of useful information, keeping the rider aware of all the bike’s systems, settings, and real-time operating status; when connected to the rider’s smartphone it can also display maps, incoming and outgoing phone calls, contacts, and music for even greater convenience, functionality, and fun.
- The display can be set for manual or automatic switching between Day Mode (white background) and Night Mode (black background). The display’s general brightness can be set to automatically adjust to the ambient light level, or manually set to suit the rider’s preference.
- The TFT display uses GSX-S1000GX+ exclusive graphics, including blue background lines that add an extra artistic touch to help convey Suzuki’s spirit and brand identity.
- An additional feature of the TFT screen is a brief custom animation that plays when the ignition key is switched on. This playful presentation is pleasing to the eye and builds excitement for the ride to come.
The display format of the HOME screen on the TFT panel provides operational information in an easily recognizable way:
- The left side of the panel has an analog tachometer animation with a sweeping red needle that accurately indicates the engine RPM
- Near the center of the panel is a digital speedometer, and directly below the speed display is a fuel level gauge. The indicators for the Smart Cruise Control system are also displayed in this area.
- The right side of the panel is the transmission gear indicator plus the rider interface for the S.I.R.S. features, such as the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector Alpha (SDMS-α), the Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) system, the Traction Control, or the Bi-directional Quick Shift System settings.
- The upper portion of the right side of the TFT panel displays status icons for the clock, smartphone battery level, and wireless connection status for smartphones and other rider and passenger Bluetooth devices.
- Depending upon the rider’s selection, the lower portion of the right side of the panel can display coolant temperature, ambient air temperature, odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel consumption, and riding range.

The aerodynamic design goal was to maximize wind protection and make the rider more comfortable by reducing sources of stress such as exposure to the cold and elements. This helps reduce fatigue when touring for long distances at speed and frees the rider to concentrate on enjoying the journey.
- Wanting to protect the rider from the effects of wind, Suzuki’s stylists developed a layered design for the fairing that greatly reduces the effects of negative air pressure to help prevent head buffeting. In addition, holes placed strategically on the face of the cowl are effective in reducing front lift. The cowl’s width was also increased to help better guide the flow of air away from the rider’s body, helping minimize discomfort or distraction (such as the rider’s jacket billowing or blowing in the wind).
Development of the windscreen focused on wind protection for the rider to create comfort that minimizes fatigue on long rides. Another design concern was to keep the windscreen as compact as possible and to create an attractive screen that would enhance the motorcycle’s appearance.
- Development involved repeated rounds of wind tunnel testing and analysis as the design was refined until it achieved just the right overall balance of rider comfort and aerodynamic performance.
- Comfort is also increased by the folded edges of the windscreen which reduces air flow that would normally press against the rider’s shoulders.
- A measured amount of airflow under the windscreen creates a smooth envelope of air, benefitting both the rider and passenger.
An optional Short Screen that is 2.1 in. (55 mm) shorter than the standard windscreen is available. This trim screen enhances the sporty image of the GSX-S1000GX+.
- The optional short screen was developed alongside the standard screen, ensuring that its look and function properly integrate with the GSX-S1000GX+.
Designed with spacious storage capacity and the ability to clip on and off the motorcycle in seconds, the GSX-S1000GX+’s standard, large-capacity side cases feature a compact design that integrates seamlessly with the motorcycle’s sharp, futuristic styling.
- With 25.7 L (0.9 cubic ft) of storage space and 5 kg (11 lbs.) weight capacity, each side case can hold most full-face helmets.
- Painted panels on the side case lids integrate the luggage to the motorcycle, providing a perfect match to the GSX-S1000GX+’s main body color.
- The side case locks accept the motorcycle’s ignition key to open the luggage or disengage the quick-release mechanism.
- The side case mounting hardware is black and unobtrusive, so when the side cases are not mounted, the mounting hardware does not detract from the motorcycle’s sporty appearance.
When creating the GSX-S1000GX+, Suzuki designers focused on fashioning a new Crossover appearance, one that visually conveys the potential of superbike-level performance plus the physical presence of an adventure tourer that is ready to go anywhere. This ideal blends with Suzuki’s attention to detail which results in a premium motorcycle with the sophistication that delivers comfort on long rides, making the ride more important than the destination.
The new fairing features a sharp, protruding nose that culminates at the compact LED headlights. The headlights are flanked by LED position lights with the look of a sharp pair of “eyes” that present a sporty, yet sophisticated image.
- In pursuit of the optimum aerodynamic form, and to keep the size relatively compact, the shape of the fairing was refined through rounds of analysis and wind tunnel testing until both the designers and engineers were satisfied. This effort helped improve comfort without sacrificing agility.
- The efforts of the development team also produced a multi-layered expression by which the shape and different coloring of the side panels give the fairing an aggressive look which also complements the GX+’s seating position.
- Further accentuating the image of a long-legged machine that is ready to go anywhere are the upswept lines on the side panels combined with the matte silver exposed side rails, the gold-anodized forks, and rear suspension motor unit. These stand in contrast to the blacked-out exhaust, engine, and other mechanical parts that ride low on the GSX- S1000GX+.
The 2024 GSX-S1000GX+ arrives in Pearl Matte Shadow Green (QU5). The new colorway debuts on Suzuki’s first Crossover model that contrasts silver side panels against sleek, green fairing and fuel tank. In green, the GX+ presents itself with functional beauty that blends equally well in urban environments or the great outdoors.
The distinctively styled “GX” logos on the fairing sides lend an intelligent and sophisticated look that befits a sport Crossover model. Understated SUZUKI logos on the fuel tank also contribute to the sophisticated appearance.
The custom-designed ignition key sports the special GX logo in gold lettering on its grip to add a luxurious touch and aims to instill pride of ownership in this premium model.
The standard side cases were styled to match the GSX-S1000GT and GX+ motorcycles, so when fitted, they present an integrated appearance.
A variety of Genuine Suzuki Accessories are available, with many items specially designed for the GSX-S1000GX+.
The accessory offerings include heated hand grips, low and premium seats, fuel tank and engine cover protectors, clip-on tank bags, plus a unique selection of Suzuki logo apparel.
