The Suzuki Concept GSX, a design study in the form of a white sculpture, has been unveiled at the ongoing Tokyo Motor Show. The concept previews the design direction that the next gen GSX series and Hayabusa superbikes would take. The company describes it as a “birth place of new sportsbikes to come from Suzuki.”
The concept clearly prioritizes aerodynamic effeciency as suggested by the smooth flowing lines and an arching windscreen. The wide fairing houses a new distinct light signature which includes LED headlight in the middle with a parabolic daytime running light strip.
The design is more of an evolution of the current GSX language but has a more modern appeal. The side panels of the full fairing are multi-layered, the fuel tank is generously proportioned with nice knee recesses, the tailpiece is smooth and wide, the silencer canister is stubby with a tapered tip and the instrument console continues to have dials. It remains to be seen how many of these features would make it to production models.
Suzuki is likely to start upgrading its stable with the next gen Suzuki Hayabusa but it’s too early to speculate on the timeframe or product details.
