Suzuki surprised the motorcycling world by announcing several new models for the 2017 selling season, like the adventure-minded 2018 V-Strom 1000XT. Now the company is announcing availability dates, colors, and MSRPs for its most anticipated new models.


2018 Suzuki GSX-S750 and GSX-S750Z
The 2018 Suzuki GSX-S750 and GSX-S750Z feature significant engine and chassis advancements focused on delivering an exciting ride that could only come from a bike incorporating GSX-R technology. Increased horsepower and a more capable chassis combine with sharp new street-fighter styling that resembles the GSX-S1000. Mix in 50 state emissions compliance and a comfortable, yet sport riding position, and you have a sure fire sportbike homerun.

The 2018 Suzuki GSX-S750 will be available in April in Metallic Triton Blue/Glass Sparkle Black and Pearl Mira Red, with an MSRP of $8,299.

The 2018 Suzuki GSX-S750Z blends Suzuki’s Anti-Lock Brake System and dramatic Metallic Matte Black No. 2 body work that also features a blacked out exhaust system and other components. The richly dark GSX-S750Z will be available in May, with an MSRP of $8,899.


2017 V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 650XT
With aggressive new styling for 2017, the V-Strom 650 and 650XT are sure to be admired as you ride down the road—whether it’s paved or not. Employing the stronger, revised engine from the new SV650, this new V-Strom delivers more performance in every riding condition. Others will further admire the addition of a three-mode traction control system, Suzuki’s Low RPM Assist, and Easy-start System that adds control and convenience. Changes to the chassis bring a bright, vertically stacked headlight, plus a new rear cargo rack and the ability to use accessories unitized with the V-Strom 1000 models. Additional features found on the V-Strom 650XT include spoke-style wheels with tubeless adventure-ready tires, handguards, larger handlebar vibration damper weights and a lower engine protector.

The 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 650 will be available in February in Pearl Glacier White, with an MSRP of $8,799. The 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 650XT will be available in March in Champion Yellow No. 2 and Glass Sparkle Black, with an MSRP of $9,299.


2018 V-Strom 1000 and V-Strom 1000XT
The 2018 V-Strom 1000 and 1000XT take riding to the next level with sharper styling and a bevy of new features aimed directly at improving your adventure. Rider comfort is improved with a taller windscreen that is easily adjusted by hand. The electronics on the V-Strom 1000 got a big upgrade for 2018 with the addition of a 3-axis, 5-direction IMU that works with Suzuki’s Motion Track Anti-Lock Combined Brake System that not only delivers superb braking performance but aids chassis stability when braking while cornering. This system, the first in the V-Strom 1000’s class, combines with the 3-position Traction Control System and torque-rich 998cc 90O V-twin engine to aid rider confidence when road conditions change.

Additional features found only on the V-Strom 1000XT include spoke-style wheels with tubeless tires and a large diameter, tapered handlebar that helps damp vibration.

The 2018 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 will be available in April in Pearl Glacier White, with an MSRP of $12,699. The 2018 Suzuki V-Strom 1000XT will be available in May in Champion Yellow No. 2 and Glass Sparkle Black, with an MSRP of $12,999.
