Suzuki National Demo Tour Schedule Announced

2024 Suzuki GSX-8R in Metallic Triton Blue
The 2024 Suzuki GSX-8R is just one of many Suzuki models that you can test ride during the Suzuki National Demo Tour.

It’s hard to know if a motorcycle is right for you until you’ve ridden it, but many dealers don’t offer test rides. At Rider, we try to provide an in-depth look and honest riding impressions through our motorcycle reviews to give you everything you need to know about a model before visiting your local dealership, but words, photos, and even video don’t quite compare to the experience of a first ride on a new motorcycle.

Now is your chance to try out the Hayabusa 25th Anniversary Edition.

If you’ve been reading our Suzuki motorcycle reviews and have wanted to get a taste of riding one of these models yourself, you’re in luck! Beginning the week of March 1-9 at Daytona Bike Week, the Suzuki National Demo Tour invites riders to schedule a demo from an extensive list of Suzuki models.

The Suzuki V-Strom 800DE is another option during the Suzuki National Demo Tour.

If you’re at Daytona Bike Week and want to try out a new Suzuki, bring your license and your riding gear to the Suzuki display at Daytona International Speedway. Demo rides will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Schedule a ride on a GSX-8R, GSX-8S, V-Strom 800 or 1050, Hayabusa, or any other Suzuki from the list of available models.

In addition to demo rides, you’ll also find a display of fully accessorized models, custom bikes, Suzuki racing bikes, and Genuine Suzuki Accessories.

  1. So glad I was able to hook up with you guys last year in Grandview, MO (Kansas City) but looks like the closest you’re going to be (to KC) is Plano, TX. Looks like a roadie is in order mid April!

  2. As dearly as I’d like for Plano Powersports to have the Suzuki truck for a month, I am working under the assumption that the correct dates are April 19th and 20th.

    Plano seems like a great dealership, but I am hoping the demo crew has found a less urban-route for the ride.

  3. Well, maybe this is why Suzuki lags the other Japanese motorcycle makers in sales. Their dealer network is the weakest, years after Covid they still struggle to ship bikes, and now they announce their big tour. Humm, what state sells more motorcycles than any other state in the USA? That would be California, where riders spent $5.5 billion on street bikes alone in 2022. And what state is missing from the big Suzuki tour? California. Brilliant, and a real pity. I tried to purchase one of their new 1000’s when it came out a few years ago. I finally gave up because our local dealer couldn’t get one for over a year. Or, in Suzuki’s defense, perhaps they know that California’s broken system is trying to outlaw all gas motorcycles? Warning: If you love motorcycles, hamburgers and bacon, and Newsom runs for president, don’t vote for him. He want all of this to go away.
