This year’s MCN London Motorcycle Show will take place 16-18 February at the ExCeL in the capital’s East End, and Suzuki’s latest additions to its model range will take centre stage.
Launched to great fanfare, the GSX-S1000GX will draw in the crowds. Powered by a 999cc inline four-cylinder engine known for its creamy delivery and addictive induction raw, the new crossover machine is also tech-laden, with an IMU and electronic semi-active suspension from Showa, smartphone connectivity via a full-colour TFT screen, traction control, anti-wheelie, innovative roll torque control, cruise control, and a bi-directional quickshifter.
Dubbed MCN’s Naked Bike of the Year in 2023, the award-winning GSX-8S is on display. Sharing the same torque-rich 776cc parallel twin engine, the new-for-2024 GSX-8R – which was launched earlier this month and received the headline ‘GSX-8R Rocks’ on the cover of Motorcycle News – is also sure to be a favourite.
2024 marks the 25th anniversary of the iconic Hayabusa. The special edition anniversary model – in its striking burnt orange paint scheme - will sparkle under the exhibition hall lighting.
The SV650 – also turning 25 in 2024 – the GSX-S1000 and the GSX-S1000GT will also feature, as will the new V-Strom 800RE and V-Strom 800DE. Also from the adventure stable will be the V-Strom 1050, V-Strom 1050DE, and the venerable V-Strom 650XT
The learner-friendly GSX-R and GSX-S125s will lineup alongside the Avenis, Address, and Burgman Street 125EX scooters, and the Burgman 400 maxi scooter.
Bringing the history will be an RG500 sporting the iconic number seven of Barry Sheene. The XR22A – unlike many other of the twice world champion’s race bikes – remains unrestored, and will appear as it finished its last race in 1978.
Long-standing race team partner SR75 Suzuki will showcase their Arenacross-spec RM-Z450, and a project V-Strom 800DE, with team owner Geoff Walker present across all three days. Over the weekend three-time British Superbike Champion John Reynolds will also be on the stand.
The show takes place over three days – from 16-18 February at London’s ExCeL, located on Royal Victoria Dock, 1 Western Gateway, London E16 1XL.
Suzuki can be found on stand M110. Keep an eye on our social channels and website for further information on the run up to the show.
