2024 Suzuki GSX-S1000GTA Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
STCS – Suzuki Traction Control System
Suzuki’s traction control system continuously monitors front and rear wheel speeds, throttle position sensor, crank position sensor and gear position sensor, and quickly reduces engine output when wheel spin is detected. Engine output is controlled by managing ignition timing and air delivery to ensure smoother traction control operation. As a result, the rider can enjoy more comfortable long-distance riding, with less stress and fatigue.
SCAS – Suzuki Clutch Assist System
Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) – a back-torque-limiting clutch helps make downshifts smoother, assists the rider in taking control in deceleration. Ramped engagement cams built into the clutch hub decrease force on the clutch plates under deceleration by pushing up against the pressure plate, allowing the plates to slip at a controlled rate.
SDMS – Suzuki Drive Mode Selector
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system allows the rider to select one of three fuel injection and ignition system maps (2 maps in the case of GSX-R750/600), adjusting power delivery to suit personal preference in various riding situations, such as different racetracks or tight, twisty roads. Selecting and switching between mode settings is by a switch on the handlebar; the selected mode setting is displayed on the tachometer. The feature helps the rider to enjoy the performance in a wider range of riding situations. * The technology is used in GSX-R1000, 750, 600, DL1050 and Hayabusa.
Easy Start System
On a normal motorcycle when starting the engine, the rider needs to press and hold the starter switch until the engine fires up. With the Suzuki Easy Start, all you need to do is one quick push of the starter switch, just like starting a modern car engine. The ECM recognizes the signals and keeps the starter motor working for a specified time.
Low RPM Assist
Low RPM Assist uses the ISC mechanism to help raise engine rpm slightly in launching and riding at low speed. This feature helps smoother operation when pulling away and when riding at slow speeds, this means it’s easier to pull away and easier to control the engine in stop-start traffic.
BI-DIRECTIONAL QUICK SHIFT SYSTEM
Bi-Directional Quick Shift System lets you shift up or down without the need to operate the clutch or throttle for seamless shifting. When activated, Quick Shift automatically interrupts power delivery just long enough to produce smoother, almost uninterrupted acceleration when you shift up. When decelerating, the system automatically opens the throttle valves just enough to increase rpm and match engine speed to the next-lower gear ratio.
RIDE BY WIRE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE SYSTEM
Not only is this new cable-free system simpler, lighter and more compact than a mechanical throttle, it provides light, natural, linear response to throttle operation. Precision control over throttle valve action, as realized by leveraging the onboard 32-bit ECM, also makes it possible to introduce other advanced systems that enhance riding ease and controllability.

PURE POWER AND RELIABILITY TO GO THE DISTANCE
The new GT is powered by a high-performance 999cm3 four-stroke DOHC liquid-cooled inline-four engine developed to realize the ideal a true grand touring riding experience. The engine underwent a thorough review and updates to increase power output and achieve an even better balance of overall performance, all while satisfying Euro 5 emissions standards.
The new version delivers superbike-level performance while minimizing vibration to make riding more exciting, more comfortable and less tiring, whether travelling long distances on the highway or enjoying a ride around town. Its broad, smooth torque curve featuring greater cumulative torque production consistently delivers abundant power throughout the engine’s operating range and makes this grand tourer equally adept at street riding as it is at high-speed long-distance touring, even under load when carrying gear and a passenger on the back.
A CHASSIS ENGINEERED FOR REAL-WORLD ENJOYMENT
The new GT delivers nimble handling and confidence-inspiring controllability, whether out touring long distances on the highway, negotiating twisty mountain roads, or simply enjoying its sporty performance on city streets. Every component of the chassis and running gear is engineered to bring you just the right balance of agility, stability and comfort for a true grand touring experience.
At the core is the compact, lightweight chassis design. The rigid twin-spar aluminum frame and ruggedly braced aluminum-alloy swingarm are key to great road holding ability that will go the distance, even when carrying a passenger and a full load of gear.
A SPORTY, YET PLUSH RIDE
Fully adjustable 43mm KYB inverted front forks and link-type rear suspension combine agility and stability with a ride that is sporty yet plush. Carrying all this to the road surface in harmony with the suspension settings are six-spoke cast aluminum wheels fitted with new Dunlop SPORTMAX Roadsport 2 radial tires designed specifically for the GSX-S1000GT.
The tires adopt an updated internal construction with a carcass that is custom-engineered exclusively for the GT and tuned to deliver just the right level of rigidity to match its weight and the riding conditions under which it will be used. Also introducing a new compound and optimized tread pattern, these new tires enhance grip in wet conditions warm up faster and achieve better wear resistance.

CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM
Cruise control is a convenient new system that lets you maintain a set speed without operating the throttle. This helps reduce fatigue when touring long distances, particularly when travelling at constant speed on highways. You can easily adjust the speed setting up or down using the (+/-) select switch on the left handlebar and confirm the current setting on the TFT LCD instrument screen by pressing the left handlebar switch’s RES button. Cruise Control can be set at speeds between 30km/h to 180km/h while riding above 2,000rpm in second gear or higher.
COMFORTABLE UPRIGHT RIDING POSITION
Extended handlebar length and grips angled closer to your body gives you greater control over steering and makes the bars more comfortable to hold. The result is reduced fatigue when touring long distances or enjoying a sporty run. This combines with a new seat design and slightly longer distance between the seat and footrests to realize an upright riding position that offers relaxing comfort on those long rides.
MAXIMUM COMFORT FOR A SMOOTH, RELAXING RIDE
The GT features engineering to minimize vibration for an even smoother, more relaxing ride. No effort has been spared in designing the GT to isolate you and your passenger from vibration that might otherwise by transmitted from the engine or chassis. The GT adopts a new floating handlebar design that introduces rubber mounts in the top bridge and brackets to lessen the amount of vibration transmitted to your hands.
Special care went into designing the thickness, shape and size of the new rider and pillion seats, and both seats are covered in a new material that provides positive grip. New grab bars at the back of the pillion seat further contribute to passenger comfort.
One additional example is the vibration-absorbing rubber that covers the aluminum footrest pegs.
