Fancy a spin on the new GSX-R1000? Want to see if a V-Strom is for you? The good news is that Suzuki is once again taking its demo fleet on a UK tour, giving motorcyclists around the country an opportunity to sample the latest models at a number of biking hotspots.


Starting at the Green Welly Stop in Tyndrum, Scotland, on June 3, the tour takes in seven weekends before ending at the Super Sausage in Towcester, close to the famous Silverstone circuit, on September 30.


Headlining the demo fleet is the much anticipated new GSX-R1000, which features a host of MotoGP-derived technology, including a clever variable valve timing system that gives the new sportsbike a broad spread of power and torque to go with its lofty 202bhp peak power.


Suzuki’s demo fleet will also feature the new V-Strom 650, which gets more power and torque for 2017, the bigger V-Strom 1000, a new GSX-S750 and the ever popular SV650, GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F models.


Announcing the decision to take it’s demo fleet ‘to the people’ for a third successive year Rob Cooper, Suzuki GB’s marketing manager, said: “This is the third year of our biker café tour, which has proven both immensely popular and successful over the last couple of years. By visiting the cafés we’re getting out there and bringing our bikes to a wider audience. As a result, we’re making the test ride experience even easier, and spending time with people we’re perhaps not currently seeing at other events or in dealerships. We’ve cherry picked some of the most popular destinations across the country, and will be running two-day events at all of the cafés on the calendar. We’re now looking forward to the first event next month.”
