Suzuki set to show new bikes at Scottish Motorcycle Show

Suzuki is set to bring the showstoppers to this year’s Scottish Motorcycle Show, with the new GSX-S1000GX arguably set to be the biggest draw for showgoers. The Japanese brand will be supported by the popular motorcycle dealership Cupar Motorcycles. 


Announced in November at the international motorcycle show Eicma, in Milan, Italy, the new GX packs an incredible level of technology and performance. Sophisticated electronic suspension comes from fellow Japanese company Showa, and adjust on the move to changing road conditions and surfaces, while the suite of electronic rider aids includes cruise control, a bi-directional quickshifter - meaning no need to operate the clutch during gear changes - ABS that works at lean angle thanks to a Bosch inertial measurement unit (IMU), smartphone connectivity via a colour TFT dash. There are also selectable engine power modes and seven traction control settings.

Those traction control settings also include an anti-wheelie system that helps riders harness the 152PS engine that shares DNA with Suzuki’s racing machines of the past. 


Also harnessing that sporting DNA is the GSX-8R, a new middleweight sportsbike, too, announced in Milan last year. It will be on display alongside its stablemate, the GSX-8S, with which it shares a brand new 776cc twin-cylinder engine. 


That engine can also be found powering two of the firm’s adventure machines: the off-road-ready V-Strom 800DE, and its more road-focussed sibling, the V-Strom 800RE. 


On hand across the weekend to talk about all things Suzuki, from new models to information on current offers and deals, will be Alan Lawrie, Cupar Motorcycles’ dealer principal. 


"We’re looking forward to another exciting Scottish Motorcycle Show and representing and working alongside our colleagues from Suzuki,” Lawrie said. “They have released a lot of new bikes over the last few years, and that flurry of new bikes has really culminated with the GSX-S1000GX, which has got a lot of people excited. It should be a good show and a good weekend for Scottish motorcycle enthusiasts."


The Scottish Motorcycle Show will take place on 16 and 17 March, 2024, at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, Edinburgh, EH28 8NB.
