The all-new 2022 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 equipment features.
More than an evolution of the prior generation GSX-S1000F, the GSX-S1000GT+ fulfills the transformation in what 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 new Suzuki mySPIN connectivity application integrated into the full-color TFT instrument panel provides easy access to contacts, maps, music, and phone communication.
Using long-stroke, GSX-R engine architecture, the 999cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled DOHC in-line four engine delivers smooth, consistent power throughout its wide power band. This enhances the riding experience, both at the low- to mid-range engine speeds commonly used in daily riding, and through the mid- to high-range used when travelling long distances on the highway. Refined and controlled performance is managed by Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) technology, including electronic cruise control, traction control* and clutchless quick shifting, so passing slower traffic is an opportunity, never a challenge.
The twin-spar aluminum frame and superbike-braced swingarm help deliver agile handling and great road-holding ability that will go the distance. Visually stunning, the new trellis-style sub-frame design creates secure attachment points for the high capacity 36L side cases, while allowing for a thick, more comfortable passenger seat. The GSX-S1000GT+’s cargo capacity and suspension control can flex to each new destination, thanks to its fully adjustable, inverted KYB fork and easy-to-adjust rear shock. The dual, ABS-equipped**, radial-mounted, four-piston, Brembo-front brake calipers and 310mm floating rotors provide the controlled stopping performance needed to travel two-up with confidence.
Comfort is vital to miles of effortless performance, and the GSX-S1000GT+ is ready to accept your next long ride. Set behind the wind-tunnel developed windscreen, the GT+’s cast-aluminum handlebar is wider than the prior GSX-S1000F’s bars, and is shaped and positioned for a comfortable reach, delivering the proper leverage to guide the GSX-S1000GT+ on any road. The handlebar’s special rubber mount damps vibration to the rider’s hands, while all the footrests have durable rubber inserts to damp vibration to the rider’s and passenger’s boots. The rider and passenger seats have a new sporty design that maximizes comfort on long rides, and both sport a new cover material that balances grip with freedom of movement. The rider’s seat-shape further expands freedom of movement, while the pillion design maximizes passenger comfort and integrates well with the new grab-bar design.
The GSX-S1000GT+ puts a new face on sport touring performance and comfort. The striking and original face of the GT+ begins with a raked nose, while a pair of horizontally arranged LED headlights, V-shaped position light, new mirror design, and side-mounted LED turn signals fashion a unique Grand Touring appearance that is distinctively Suzuki. The GT+’s daring styling continues into the standard side cases and optional touring windshield for a fully integrated appearance. The GT+’s two available body colors are the majestic Metallic Reflective Blue, and the ever-popular Glass Sparkle Black combined with unique GT logos to identify the 2022 GSX-S1000GT+ as motorcycling’s best road companion.
