Just last week, Suzuki announced the addition of a new sport-tourer, the GSX-S1000GT, to its line-up. However, the Japanese manufacturer didn’t reveal a rather crucial bit of information – its price in the United States. Asphalt and Rubber have now reported on the 2022 Suzuki GSX-S1000 pricing, along with that of the recently launched 2022 Suzuki GSX-S1000.
Suzuki has revealed that the 2022 Suzuki GSX-S1000 is priced at $11,299, while the 2022 Suzuki GSX-S1000GT and GSX-S1000GT+ will set you back $13,149 and $13,799, respectively. The additional $650 that you pay for the GT+ trim will get you hard saddlebags. The prices above are “introductory,” so a minor increase is expected over the next few weeks.
The way they’re currently priced, the GSX-S1000 and Suzuki GSX-S1000GT models are aggressively priced and act as excellent options for someone looking at a new liter-class street-naked or sport-tourer. A&R points out that the Suzuki GSX-S1000 is more affordable than its most direct rivals – the Honda CB1000R, priced at $12,999, and the Yamaha MT-10 that also wears a $12,999 price tag.
The Suzuki GSX-S1000GT, meanwhile, takes on the likes of the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT, which costs over $1,000 more than the Suzuki. This segment also houses the Ninja 1000 SX, which offers a more comprehensive electronics package, and undercuts the GT+ trim by about $300. On the flip side, the Suzuki offers 10hp more than the Ninja’s 140hp and weighs marginally less – 16lbs less than the 514lbs Kawasaki.
