The All-New 2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX+: First Suzuki Bike to Receive Suzuki’s New Electronic Suspension

Out of many trending topics that have surfaced recently, news that has created a spark in the motorcycling world is the introduction of electronic suspension technology by Suzuki.

The company is gradually shifting towards exclusive parts and technology to be incorporated into its motorcycles. Although Suzuki may not be renowned for building the most extravagant motorbikes, it has its own class and stature. The Suzuki V-Strom, the Suzuki Hayabusa, and the Suzuki Gixxer are a few of the most noteworthy bikes the company has ever produced. Though Suzuki bikes boast simplicity, they do not compromise on quality and dependability.

As of now, Suzuki plans to shift its focus to incorporate advanced technology to capture the interest of young riders. The company is all set to launch its electronically-controlled suspension in its 2024 Suzuki GSX-GS1000GX+ model, a variant of the Suzuki GSX-S1000+.

The new 2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX+ falls under the crossover motorbike category.

The 2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX+ is aggressive and sporty with the front styling resembling a supersport bike. The engine, along with most of the motorcycle parts, is exposed, giving it a naked bike vibe. However, when it comes to capabilities and performance, the 2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GX+ is a lightweight adventure tourer with decent touring potential as well. This motorbike comes equipped with standard hard saddlebags/side cases and a luggage rack to improve its touring potential.

Suzuki’s new electronic suspension is a part of the intelligent ride system installed in Suzuki motorcycles. This smart feature enables riders to enjoy a variety of riding experiences on varied terrains. Previously, Suzuki motorcycles were equipped with simple and mechanically operated suspension systems.

Suzuki’s electronic suspension, also known as the Suzuki Advanced Electronic Suspension (S.A.E.S.), also improves the level of comfort while riding. The electronic suspension technology provides riders with an option to control the suspension performance and feel as per their preferences. The rider can easily switch the suspension setting to make them either soft or hard, depending on the type of terrain. Using the active damping setting on this motorcycle, the rider has four options to choose from the different suspension settings electronically, including soft, medium, hard, and user-customized.

Apart from being electronically controlled, the front suspension is an inverted front fork with coil springs and oil-damped long suspension strokes. Meanwhile, the rear suspension is also an electronically controlled, link-type single shock absorber. Both the front and rear suspension are engineered to provide a decent wheel travel of 5.9 inches.

The 2024 Suzuki GSX S1000GX+ is expected to be launched in December this year.
