Suzuki GSX1400 rumours
|I will gather some GSX1400 related
rumours here. Needless to say they are just rumours and not facts.
Check out the original sources (click at the source title) and
make your own opinion. Please mail me more rumours!
Suzuki GSX1400 at the Milano Motorcycle
Show in September 2001.
Suzuki GSX1400 info
and rumours, mostly from 2001:
GSX1400 2002 will not be imported into USA
According to this source the GSX1400 will not be imported into
the United States. At least not this year. Because of the
testing/certification necessary to sell a bike in the US, Suzuki
has decided not to bring the bike in.
Maybe they are not importing the bike in 2001. Still, Sato Racing
in USA is already (October 2001)selling aftermarket exhaust systems
for GSX1400 (see aftermarket
cans and pipes page). That indicates that it will be imported
Suzuki Canada Inc:
No plans to import GSX1400
The customer service at Suzuki Canada told Mr. Jason Dunn on Tue,
13 Nov 2001 that Suzuki has no plans to import this model into
the Canadian marketplace at this time.
GSX1400 imported into Canada in January 2002
I know at least one guy in Canada who is waiting for Suzuki GSX1400
to be released there. Now, according to Autonet.ca GSX1400 will
be one of the new models released in January 2002.
We didn't get it! Maybe as a 2003 year's model...
Canadian Motorcycle Guide Online tells on his site about GSX1400
with an article title What we didn't get: Since the U.S.
have opted not to bring this in, it would prove just too expensive
for Canada to go it alone. However, they have not ruled it out
as a 2003 model, and possibly as an early release in 2002.
For me it's surprising that the North American market haven't
decided yet to import GSX1400. Don't they know what they have
Italy: GSX1400 is finally imported to Italy
Now there's finally a GSX1400 page on Suzuki Italy site and the
model is on the price list updated in September 18th 2001. I don't
know for sure what "nuovità 2002" means, if the
bike is available next year or if it's only the model year. Anyway,
perhaps Givi and other Italian manufactures of aftermarket products
begin to make goodies for GSX1400 now after the decision of import
Poland: I don't understand Polish, but after visiting a
Polish bike site I got the impression that GSX1400 is available
even there. The news were dated in August 2001.
GSX1400 available since November 2001
Ronan Kelly sent me a mail (March 20, 2002), he tells that the
GSX1400 has been available in Ireland since November 2001. If
you could add a link to our site www.suzuki-ireland.com,
I would appreciate it. There is a nice wall paper shot of the
1400 and some free Suzuki Ireland screen savers. I'm glad
to put the link to the site I find quite informative. Ronan made
the website for Suzuki Ireland.
Denmark: GSX1400 available since April 2002
Niels Friis from Denmark mailed me and told that he bought a gray
GSX1400K2 the 4th of April 2002. He says that he is most likely
the first GSX1400 owner in Denmark. He paid 139,995 DKr for his
bike, that's inclusive 25 % VAT and numberplate. The motorcycle
prices in Denmark are sky high, about 50% higher than here in
Norway: Price tag on a new GSX1400: 175,000 NKr
I asked a GSX1400 owner from Norway; Snorre Kristoferssen, about
the new prices: He gave me the answer: 175,000 Nkr 108,000
of the price contains of taxes for the state!!! Niels from Denmark
thought he paid a lot... I'm glad we have a more human tax system
for motorcycles in Sweden! I paid about half the price of my K2
South Africa: GSX1400 is coming in February 2002
With a slogan Ride the winds of change Suzuki South
Africa (with the Internet server apparently in Zaire...) announces
that GSX1400 K2 is available there in February 2002. Fine page
with lots of facts and large pictures (I borrowed them all to
be viewed even here). No trace of the suggested new paint scheme
for the next year's model on those pictures... See
Check out even the Next
year's model (2003?) page to see the upcoming GSX1400 with
whole new paint job! There's even a silver colored GSX1400 now.

|The information about the release dates may vary from source
to source. For example: according to Swedish Bike
magazine told in June 2001 that the GSX1400 was recently released
in Japan and it should be available in Sweden some time in the
autumn. Nevertheless an authorized Suzuki dealer in Sweden got
and sold a GSX1400 already in June. And what about Japan? Was
it launched there in March 2001? The model was approved in EEG
already 22 March 2001 (2 April in Sweden). If you know the official
date for your (or any other) country, please tell
Another thing: Snorre Kristoffersen from Norway (see his bike
pictures on Visitors'
Suzuki Pictures page ) wonders if he registered the very first
GSX1400 in Europe. The date was 11 June 2001. Tell us if he was
the first one!
