Majestic Performance

The Elegance of Controllable and Reliable Power

The GX is powered by a 999cm3 liquid-cooled DOHC inline-four engine engineered to perform optimally under diverse riding conditions and in all kinds of traffic. Derived from the engine that helped carry the GSX-R1000 supersport machine to countless racing championship titles, this street-tuned powerplant benefits from a fusion of race-proven engineering and the latest in technological advances to achieve the durability and balanced performance needed to support both long-distance touring and aggressive sport riding, while also satisfying Euro 5 emissions standards.

Features include superbike-level performance and a broad, smooth torque curve throughout the engine’s operating range.

Vibration is also minimised to make riding more comfortable and less tiring. This combines with a variety of electronic control technologies that enable you to match torque output to the type of ride or your preferred riding style at any given time, and includes the excitement of powerful acceleration to support aggressive sport riding when desired.

ELECTRICAL

Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.)

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector Alpha (SDMS-α): Integrated Riding Modes

The GX follows Suzuki’s flagship Hayabusa model in adopting its own application of SDMS-α, which features integrated management of multiple advanced electronic control systems that make the GX more controllable. Its three integrated riding modes control power output characteristics, as well as the level of Traction Control (with integrated Lift and Roll Torque Control) and Active Damping Control (with Suzuki Floating Ride Control). Using SDMS-α can be as easy as choosing the factory default settings for any of the three modes shown below. Each is carefully tuned, tested and recommended by Suzuki’s engineers. You can also opt to customise some settings to suit the riding conditions of the moment and match your specific needs or preferences more closely.

A (Active) mode

Designed for the more aggressive riding style of a sporty run on good roads.

B (Basic) mode

Set up to deliver a satisfying balance of settings good for a broad range of riding situations.

C (Comfort) mode

Aims to prioritise comfort and controllability, particularly when riding long distances or carrying a passenger and gear.

SDMS-α: Smart TLR (Traction, Lift and Roll Torque) Control

Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS)

Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS) enables you to better control the bike, whether riding alone or with a passenger, and regardless of weather or road conditions. This reduces stress and fatigue, and helps you ride with greater confidence. STCS for the GX is designed to support SDMS-α’s integrated riding modes. In addition to the default settings, you can choose from one of seven selectable level settings to match your preferences and the riding conditions of the moment, or opt to turn the system off. The higher number the mode, the faster the control takes effect and the more proactive the system is in limiting wheel spin.

Note: The Suzuki Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when entering turns, or while braking. Nor can it prevent the front wheel from losing traction.

Lift Limiter

Lift Limiter brings added peace of mind by helping prevent the front wheel from lifting off the ground when accelerating. It operates silently in the background, with the STCS level setting determining the level of intervention. This ranges from a low setting that prioritises performance to a high setting that takes effect before the front wheel begins to lift. Thorough testing went into tuning this intelligent control scheme to provide the benefit of anti-lift, but only while still delivering the powerful acceleration expected of a GSX-S series motorcycle.

Roll Torque Control

A Suzuki first, this intelligent system provides an extra layer of preemptive slide protection that operates silently in the background, with its settings being determined by the STCS level setting. It operates by leveraging roll movement (lean angle) and wheel speed data to predetermine what level of power output and acceleration is optimal for a given corner, and reduces torque output before the GX exceeds that level.

SDMS-α : Active Damping Control (ADC)

The GX leverages the new Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (SAES) to offer four electronically controlled damping modes– “H” (Hard), “M” (Medium), “S” (Soft) and the customisable “U” (User) setting. The damping automatically adjusts on the fly to match the riding conditions of the moment in accordance with your selected mode, and you can opt to change the default settings for each of the SDMS-α riding modes as suits your needs or preferences. In addition, when customizing User mode, you can independently adjust the front and rear settings by ±3 increments after selecting between a base setting of Hard, Medium or Soft.

Fixed: Front 0 / Rear 0

  • H (Hard mode)
  • M (Medium mode)
  • S (Soft mode)

Customisable: Front ±3 / Rear ±3*

  • U (User mode)

*The default setting is Front 0 / Rear 0

Slope Dependent Control System

This system helps support more stable braking by preventing rear wheel lift when braking while riding downhill. The ABS unit uses input from the IMU to monitor the bike’s posture and, when you apply the brakes, its hydraulic unit controls brake pressure to deliver the optimum setting to match the current slope angle.

 

Motion Track Brake System

This system enhances control by supporting ABS activation not only when travelling in a straight line, but also when leaning into corners. By controlling brake pressure while braking through corners, it helps you better trace your intended line. Even if you panic and brake heavily in a corner, the system assists in maintaining stability while you slow down. The Motion Track Brake System supports the rider during braking in various riding situations, both when riding straight and when cornering. That is why the GX is the first bike in the GSX-S series to adopt the system.

Note: ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. Please always ride at a safe speed for road and weather conditions, including while cornering.

Smart Cruise Control

Smart Cruise Control helps reduce fatigue when touring long distances, particularly when travelling at constant speed on highways, by letting you maintain a set speed without operating the throttle. And it does this while allowing you to perform clutchfree gear shifts using the Bi-directional Quick Shift System without cancelling cruise control. This makes the GX more comfortable, more convenient and less tiring to operate on long rides.

When you do need to temporarily disengage the system, you can use the handy resume function to re-engage it and accelerate to the most recent speed setting. You can easily adjust the speed setting using the (+/-) select switch on the left handlebar, and the chosen setting appears on the color TFT LCD instrument screen.

  • Ride-by-wire Electronic Throttle System

    Suzuki’s electronic throttle control system gives you better control over the GX’s powerful engine at the most commonly used engine speeds, and helps effectively harness that power. It not only demonstrates high controllability when the throttle is opened to accelerate out of a corner, but also offers the benefit of natural response and linear control similar to that of conventional throttle operation.

  • Bi-directional Quick Shift System

    This distinctive feature lets you shift up or down without operating the clutch lever. This reduces fatigue while delivering assured shifts that will make you feel more confident in controlling the power of the GX. When activated, the system delivers clean, smooth upshifts with almost uninterrupted acceleration. Downshifts are also quick and smooth, thanks in part to the harmonious interplay of automatic hands-free blipping and engine braking.

  • Smart Cruise Control

    Smart Cruise Control helps reduce fatigue when touring long distances, particularly when travelling at constant speed on highways, by letting you maintain a set speed without operating the throttle. And it does this while allowing you to perform clutchfree gear shifts using the Bi-directional Quick Shift System without cancelling cruise control. This makes the GX more comfortable, more convenient and less tiring to operate on long rides.

  • Suzuki Easy Start System

    You can start the engine with one quick press of the starter button. There is no need to pull in the clutch lever and the starter motor automatically disengages the instant the engine fires up. As a function used every time the engine is started, this system makes every ride all the more pleasurable and convenient.

Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS)

The slipper clutch partially disengages when downshifting, mitigating the effect of engine braking and contributing to smoother deceleration that lets you shift down confidently and helps you maintain better control. This is complemented by an assist function that increases the clutch’s clamping force under acceleration and thereby allows the use of softer springs, realises a light touch to clutch lever operation and reduces left hand fatigue in traffic jams or on longer rides.

High-performance wheels and tires

Lightweight, six-spoke cast aluminium wheels contribute to positive handling and sporty performance. They are shod with the latest generation of Dunlop SPORTMAX Roadsport 2 radial tires (120/70ZR17 at the front; 190/50ZR17 at the rear). Engineered to perform optimally and provide sure grip, the tires have been fine-tuned to match the weight and performance characteristics of the GX and deliver the right combination of agility and stability. Their proven tread pattern employs a silica compound that delivers solid grip, contributes to nimble handling, and features durable wear resistance. These tires are a perfect match for Suzuki’s new crossover proposition.

Styling

Comfortable upright riding position

Research to find the optimum crossover riding position led to angling the handlebar grips relatively close to your body and positioning them a little higher. This realises a comfortable upright posture. The new handlebars also feature wider grip placement, which makes them comfortable to hold and gives you greater control over steering. Long suspension travel and the new seat design also contribute to a comfortable riding experience.

Aerodynamics and wind protection

The GX’s front cowl, height-adjustable windscreen and standard-equipment knuckle covers were all carefully developed and their designs realised through a process that involved both wind tunnel testing and feedback from test riders.

The goal was to provide the level of aerodynamic performance and comfort desired on long rides, while at the same time paying keen attention to achieving attractive styling. Maximised wind protection makes your ride more comfortable by reducing sources of stress such as exposure to the cold and elements. This reduces fatigue when touring for long distances at speed and frees you to concentrate on enjoying the ride, regardless of weather or road conditions.

Attention to detail extends to the front cowl, where a new layered design that suppresses the generation of negative air pressure to help prevent head buffeting. In addition, holes placed strategically on the face are effective in reducing front lift. The sides were also widened to help better guide the flow of air away from the area of the abdomen so it doesn’t cause the discomfort of, say, your jacket blowing in the wind.

Minimizing vibration to maximise comfort

The GSX-S1000GX is designed to isolate you and your passenger from vibration that might otherwise by transmitted from the engine or chassis. Details include the use of floating handlebars, floating mirror mounts and rubber footrests that reduce vibration wherever you or your passenger come into contact with the bike. These efforts to maximise comfort for a more relaxing and less tiring ride also extend to an optimised new design for both the rider and pillion seats. The seat cushion is thick yet stiff enough to support you well. Its relatively flat top surface means there is more area supporting your weight for greater comfort. And it is tapered at the front to provide you with freedom of movement when enjoying a more aggressive sporty run.

Rear carrier with integrated grab bars

As standard equipment, the GX is fitted with a handy and practical rear carrier made of lightweight aluminium. Solid grab bars on each side provide your passenger with a firm grip, and are designed to not interfere when removing the optional side cases. As a key visual accent at the rear, the carrier was also designed to convey the impact and presence of this luxurious sport crossover.
