- First viewings since global launch
- Take bikes on track test rides
- New GSX has more power, drive modes
Stuart Baker, Suzuki SA’s sales manager, told The Corner in a media release: “The new GSX-R1000A was worth the wait. Riders are going to be surprised by how tthe new engine delivers its power and the ease with which the more compact frame improves high-speed handling.”
Also on the Suzuki stand will be the new SV650 and GSX-250R, in South Africa soon after its global release.
The V-twin SV650, Suzuki says, was well-received as marking “a return to its original roots” while packing several technologies also seen on the GSX-R1000A, among them Easy Start and a Low-Speed Assist system that regulates engine power and makes slow traffic easier to negotiate.
The GSX-250R will showcase its new design, its upgraded parallel-twin engine and its full-LCD instrument cluster.

New Suzuki cars and marine products will also be on the stand at Kyalami.
