Top reasons to visit Suzuki Live this summer

Suzuki Live will turn Cadwell Park blue in just two months time. Riding your bike on track, aside, here are the top reasons to visit!


1. Watch the parades

As well as owners of Suzukis old and new enjoying sessions out on track, from RGs to GSX-Rs, there will be a number of parades of historic road and race bikes, from former GP machinery to rare road bikes.


2. Paddock displays

Wander around the paddock and have a poke around a number of display stands. As well as Suzuki having almost its entire range on display, there will be a number of models from the vintage fleet, while Team Classic Suzuki will also have exotica on show, including its GSX-R750 SRAD.


If you’re not content with that, there will be a number of clubs in attendance with their own displays, such as the Suzuki Owners Club, the Air Cooled Suzuki Club, and the Kettle Club, as well as the bikes fellow Suzuki owners have brought along to ride on track.

3. 25 Years of Hayabusa and SV650

2024 marks 25 years of two very different motorcycling icons, the Hayabusa - which needs no introduction as the halo hyperbike of the last two and a half decades - and the SV650, the bike that has been the first ‘big bike’ for so many riders, has been a commuter weapon of choice, and a race bike that has filled club racing grids and contested the Isle of Man TT.


As part of this year’s 25th anniversary celebrations there will be dedicated Hayabusa and SV parking areas, with prizes up for grabs for the best examples on display.


4. Special guests

As well as bikes, there will be people to see, too, including three-time British Superbike Champion John Reynolds - whose 2004 British title with the GSX-R1000 was 20 years ago this year - and Grand Prix racing legend Steve Parrish.


5. Free test rides, on and off-road

Almost every model in Suzuki’s range will be available to test ride over the weekend on the winding roads of the surrounding Lincolnshire Wolds. Try the third generation of the legendary Hayabusa, the new-for-2024 GSX-8R or the award-winning GSX-8S, the new V-Strom 800RE or the high tech GSX-S1000GX with its comprehensive suite of electronics topped by Showa semi-active suspension.


Away from the asphalt, the DE versions of both the V-Strom 800 and V-Strom 1050 will be available to try on a dedicated off-road loop around the Cadwell Park grounds. So, if you’re riding to the event, make sure to take a demo ride while you’re there. Or, if you’re in the car, make sure to chuck your riding kit in the boot.

6. Evening entertainment

When the track action stops the party starts. A marquee in the paddock will host live talks from the assembled special guests, while The High Rollers will provide the tunes, with the party going on ‘til late. There will be a number of vendors providing ample sustenance and refreshment.


7. Free camping

Don’t worry about having to ride home late at night or find a designated driver, if you get yourself a weekend ticket (for the paltry sum of £15 in advance), camping is included, so pitch a tent or park the camper and settle in for the night.
