First Group of 2024 Suzuki Motorcycles Launched!

Distinctive and impactful has always been a hallmark of Suzuki’s motorcycle approach. From incredible performance sportbikes to highway mile crunching cruisers to dual-sport warriors and off-road championship winning bikes Suzuki has led the pack since 1952. Let’s take look at the first group of 2024 Suzuki Motorcycles launched and see what Suzuki has instore for it’s 72nd year of production!

Remember this is early launch, first release information so everything and anything can be subject to change, but everything I post is official from Suzuki Corporate at the time of writing. That said, let’s see what 2024 Suzuki has to offer you.

For 2024, we start off with Suzuki’s iconic 2024 Suzuki Hayabusa 25th Anniversary Edition and 2024 Suzuki Hayabusa which really is the royal gem of the early releases. Since the 1999 Suzuki Hayabusa things have really improved and changed over the 25 years! The Hayabusa accelerates quicker and smoother than ever before and rider control is unmatched because of the Hayabusa’s Suzuki Intelligent Ride System. The motorcycling world has changed in those years, while the Hayabusa remains firmly on its perch as motorcycling’s Ultimate Sportbike.

And we also get 1 additional sportbike from the legendary GSX-R line, the 2024 Suzuki GSX-R750! Personally, I love the 750cc sportbike range, no one else makes a 750cc sportbike (they are rare) as well rounded as Suzuki does. More powerful and smoother than a 600cc but more handling dynamics than a 1000cc, it’s the perfect balance IMO.

True Dual-Sports and Supermoto’s are up next with the returning 2024 Suzuki DR650S and 2024 Suzuki DR-Z400S. I can’t believe the DR650 is still around and still going strong as a rider favorite. The DR-Z400S is the dual-sport version of the Supermoto 2024 Suzuki DR-Z400SM, which I really have to review from Suzuki one day, a 400cc supermoto just sounds too fun not to ride!

Around this time of year we usually see the motocross and off-road bikes launch in full, but this year we get 3 early releases instead of the entire line…2024 Suzuki RM-Z450 and 2024 Suzuki RM-Z250 for motocross and 2024 Suzuki DR-Z125L 2024 Suzuki DR-Z50 for the off-roaders. Does this mean Suzuki will be revamping their motocross and off-road bikes for 2024 or that’s all we get? I’m hoping for the revamp as 2023 Suzuki we didn’t get too many motocross or off-road bikes either.

Update: I was just informed that we have 3 returning standard sport bikes as well! Yay! So here you go 2024 Suzuki SV650X, 2024 Suzuki SV650 ABS, and the 2024 Suzuki SV650 I’ve always liked the SV650 series looks and particularly the V-Twin engine (I did own the 2007 V-Strom 650 with the “same” engine and loved it). Great to see the SV650 still going on for 2024.

Total Motorcycle will be covering all the new daily 2024 Motorcycles that are released with full information, huge photos and international MSRP’s and specifications. I take a lot of pride providing you, our readers, with the very best in motorcycle content in the world and on the internet all all for free. That you for visiting TMW, reading TMW and supporting TMW!

Enjoy!

 

Suzuki Unveils the 25th Anniversary Model of the Flagship Motorcycle Hayabusa

2024 Suzuki Hayabusa 25th Anniversary Edition

2024 Suzuki Hayabusa 25th Anniversary Edition: THE ULTIMATE SPORTSBIKE.

The Hayabusa, Suzuki Motor Corporation’s flagship motorcycle, celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2023. In commemoration, Suzuki introduces the 25th anniversary model, which will be sold globally from July, including in Japan.

The special features for the 25th anniversary model are an orange and black-based body, and special colors for the drive chain adjuster and front brake disk inner. Original engravings have been added to the muffler body and drive chain, and a 25th anniversary emblem and a three-dimensional “SUZUKI” logo on the tank. Also, the single-seat cowl is standard equipment (excluding Japan spec).

The first generation of the model was introduced at Intermot, held in Germany in 1998, as the “Hayabusa (GSX1300R)” and sales started in Europe and North America in 1999. The product concept was “Ultimate Sport”, and its high power and handling performance, coupled with its unique and aerodynamic styling, created a sensation and it became a flagship motorcycle representing Suzuki.

The second generation, with increased displacement from 1,299cm3 to 1,340cm3, was released in 2007. It inherited the outstanding and powerful performance of the first generation, with a newly adopted feature, the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), which allowed adjusting of the output characteristics by riders’ choice. Sales also expanded worldwide, launching Japanese domestic specs for the first time in 2014 and starting production and sales in India in 2016.

In 2021, the third generation Hayabusa was introduced, with a fully improved engine and chassis, and various electronic controls. The engine and chassis parts have been fully reassessed, along with adopting the electronic control system “S.I.R.S (Suzuki Intelligent Ride System)”, such as traction control systems and Bi-directional quick shift systems, making this model powerful yet controllable, and embody the styling design concept, “The Refined Beast”.

Currently, the Hayabusa is sold in 48 countries worldwide, including the United States, Europe, India, and Latin America, with cumulative series production of over 200,000 units.

Comment from President Toshihiro Suzuki

“The Hayabusa series has been a flagship model representing Suzuki, and has fans all over the world. We would like to express our deepest gratitude that this model is able to celebrate its 25th anniversary, and that it has been continuously loved by everyone for this long.
I have personally test ridden the prototype of the current third generation model, and I am proud to say that we, the Suzuki team, can present to you the best model to date. The Hayabusa will never stop its evolution. We ask for your continued love and support.”

Since defining the sportbike segment in 1985, winning multiple road racing championships, and becoming a dominant force in MotoAmerica Supersport racing over the past two seasons,  the 2024 GSX-R750 aims to thrill riders with laser-like handling and exhilarating acceleration.

For 2024, Suzuki DualSport models see the incredible DR-Z400 line celebrate its 25th anniversary, the DR-Z400SM defines Supermoto performance and style, while the proven DR650S continues to combine both on-road riding enjoyment with rock-solid off-road versatility.

 

SPORTBIKE

 Whether it’s on the road or the racetrack, the GSX-R750 delivers a stunning mixture of outstanding engine performance, precision handling, and a lightweight and agile chassis combining for an exhilarating motorcycle.

Its secret is an incomparable pairing of 750cc performance with the lightweight, compact chassis of a 600cc Supersport, complemented by technologically-advanced suspension front and rear.

For 2024 the 2024 Suzuki GSX-R750 takes on a few stunning new looks, including revisiting Suzuki’s classic blue and white livery in Pearl Brilliant White/Metallic Triton Blue. It is also offered in Pearl Brilliant White and Metallic Matte Stellar Blue or classy Metallic Matte Black No. 2 and Glass Sparkle Black.

 

 

DUALSPORT

DR650S – The 2024 Suzuki DR650S continues its reign as perhaps the best all-around, dual-purpose motorcycle available today. Always an outstanding performance value, every DR650S is quality built by Suzuki and features a dependable, 644cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder four-stroke engine mounted in a robust steel, semi-double cradle frame.

A variety of riders will enjoy this motorcycle, thanks to a seat height that may be significantly reduced (using the optional Low Side Stand Kit from Suzuki Genuine Accessories). Strong aluminum, spoke-style rims carrying tires that can manage both the street and dirt are fitted so riders can tackle pavement or trails with ease.

With Solid Black and Iron Gray paint and contrasting black and orange graphics, or bright Solid Special White #2 bodywork that features distinctive blue and black graphics, the DR650S looks great when ridden on any surface. Whatever adventure a rider undertakes, the 2024 Suzuki DR650S is a willing and eager partner.

DR-Z400S – The 2024 DR-Z400S is the latest evolution of the motorcycle that built the foundation of the modern DualSport movement. Celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2024, the DR-Z400S extends the on- and off-road legacy only Suzuki can provide.

Riders remain impressed with the torque from the 398cc, liquid-cooled powerplant, as well as the crisp-handling, adjustable suspension. This ultra-reliable bike is completely street-legal, with an electric start, and easy-to-read instrument cluster. Fully black, aluminum EXCEL rims laced with bright stainless-steel spokes are set up to accept rim locks if the rider chooses to mount more focused DualSport rubber.

True to its Suzuki off-road heritage, the 2024 DR-Z400S is available in stunning Champion Yellow bodywork enhanced with new blue and silver graphics, or gray and silver graphics on classy Solid Black bodywork making the DR-Z400S stand out everywhere.

 

2024 Suzuki DR-Z400SM

SUPERMOTO

DR-Z400SM – Suzuki’s 2024 SuperMoto variant, the DR-Z400SM, is based on the legendary DR-Z400S. Combining SuperMoto styling and features in a proven, narrow, lithe, and street-legal package. This bike brings off-road soul and sportbike riding fun to paved roads. The DR-Z400SM is just as at home on a twisty forest road, as it is on tight canyon curves, or slicing through commuter traffic around town.

Its 398cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine provides strong low-rpm torque and crisp throttle response for any of these rides. Key differences between the DR-Z400SM and the DR-Z400S are the inverted front fork, wide spoke-style 17-inch wheels, and 300mm diameter floating front brake rotor. The inverted fork contributes to less unsprung weight and improved overall on-road handling, while the large front brake and wider rims with high-grip tires help offer an exhilarating sportbike style riding experience.

Like all Suzuki motorcycles, these 2024 models may be enhanced with a variety of Suzuki Genuine Accessories, specifically designed for each model, and aimed at enhancing the riding and ownership experience.

Strong brakes and ergonomically shaped bodywork help the rider maneuver the RM-Z250 as it carves up the racetrack.

Tuning the RM-Z250’s fuel injection and ignition for maximum performance is easy thanks to Suzuki’s smartphone-based MX-Tuner and proven fuel-coupler system. Suzuki’s Winning Balance is on display with the 2024 RM-Z250 as it sets its own high standard for cornering performance.
