Suzuki carries its new sport-touring models, the GSX-S1000GT and GSX-S1000GT+, into 2023 unchanged. However, riders will be able to select from between Metallic Triton Blue or Glass Sparkle Black colors in the GT+ trim. The standard GT will be available in Metallic Reflective Blue only. The GT will start at $13,349 while the GT+ will be priced at $14,099.

Both models are still fresh, however, having been first introduced to the market for the 2022 model year.

Each carries a GSX-R1000-derived engine that delivers ample pull throughout the rev range, though it’s specifically tuned to provide the best performance in the low- to midrange. The complete Suzuki Intelligent Ride System allows riders to choose between three drive modes and five traction control modes. A bidirectional quickshifter makes moving through the gearbox a breeze and the clutch assist system makes traditional shifting maneuvers smooth. A 6.5-inch TFT instrument display provides all the information you need.

The bikes are suspended by fully adjustable KYB kit front and back and Brembo hardware provides stopping power.

Side cases are standard on the GT+ but can easily be added to the GT as well. A larger touring windscreen is also available as an upgrade if riders are looking for a little more generous protection.
