Suzuki GSX 1400 - Page 1
big bore 'Naked Bike' class is booming in Australia and Suzuki's latest
offering has the goods to shoot straight to the top of the class.
Nobody could accuse the GSX 1400 of being small or a lightweight but that is not what this type of bike is about. Buyers seek big time grunt in a well-suspended package with big brakes, good looks and a comfortable upright riding position. The GSX has all these qualities in abundance.
The fuel-injected 1,402cc engine is silky smooth with massive amounts of low and mid-range torque.
How much? With just 1000 kilometres under it's belt the Witch Cycles demo’ GSX registered a genuine 120 N-m of torque at 5,000 rpm. But what is even more impressive is the fact that over 110 N-m is maintained from 3,000 rpm right through to 6,000 rpm! Remember these are not factory claimed figures but results that we tested ourselves. <Check out our dyno runs>
For comparison Suzuki’s 1200 Bandit makes 90 N-m at the rear wheel while Yamaha’s XJR 1300 pumps out around 95 N-m. Big capacity V-Twins are renowned for their wide band of available torque but the only one I think would possibly pump out more than the GSX is Honda’s new VTX 1800. We haven’t managed to get one of those on the dyno just yet so we will have to wait and see.
