Does the world of motorcycling need a new sports tourer?
Well it seems Suzuki think so and the new GSX-S1000GT looks like it might just hit the right spot!!!!
Pricing = great value
Techno stuff whats new?
Although pretty much the same engine which has been tried and tested in other models, the bike gets revised cams a new air-box, new exhaust, assisted slipper clutch and about 152BHP to enjoy!
As far as the chassis goes it looks similar to the naked bike, but has a much stronger sub frame to deal with the extra load of panniers, so you can bring more beers if you need to.
Obviously the bike has some pretty unique futuristic styling to bring it up to date.
Behind the all new fairing with its projector LED lights is the all new TFT screen at 6.5″ its big enough even for your Nan to see and looks amazing in full colour.
Also has a host of new features like full screen sat nav, canceling and accepting calls, music selection and more.
Compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
The new GT also boasts the updated Suzuki Intelligent Ride System that brings together the engine modes, traction control, and cruise control systems.
