Visitors to the Sydney Motorcycle Show on 21-23 November will get a sneak peak of exciting new Suzuki models before they arrive down under in the coming months.

The all-new GSX-R1000 superbike, Boulevard M90 and Gladius will headline Suzuki's stand, where they will be joined by the 2009 RM-Z450 motocrosser and an extensive range of Suzuki motorcycles, scooters and ATVs.

"Suzuki is excited to give Sydney motorcycle enthusiasts a preview of what we have arriving in Australia in the near future," said Perry Morison, General Manager Motorcycles, Suzuki Australia.

"Among a total of over 50 motorcycles, we've got upcoming arrivals like the sensational all-new Suzuki GSX-R1000, the brand-new Boulevard M90 cruiser and Gladius, along with the 2009 RM-Z450."

Set to arrive in Australia early next year, the all-new, 2009 GSX-R1000 takes the legend of Suzuki's flagship GSX-R to another level.

A lighter, more-powerful and more-responsive new 999cc engine is packed with race-bred technology and boasts a class-leading power-to-weight ratio.

With a range of other major developments including an all-new chassis, a revolutionary new front suspension system, enhanced brakes and sleek, wind tunnel-refined bodywork, the all-new Suzuki GSX-R1000 is ready to own the racetrack.

The bold new Boulevard M90 will become the fifth model in Suzuki's popular Boulevard cruiser line-up when it arrives down under this month, with two existing Boulevard models already among the Top 10 best sellers in the category.

Powered by a 90-cubic-inch, 1500cc, fuel-injected, V-Twin engine, the Boulevard M90 offers riders class-leading power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios and reduced fuel consumption.

True to the form of the revolutionary Boulevard range, the engine combines with Suzuki's latest technology and distinctive cruiser styling in a lighter and more manoeuvrable package offering outstanding value for money.

A unique new concept in motorcycling, the Suzuki Gladius stands out from the pack, exuding fun and style.

With a 650cc, V-Twin powerplant derived from the popular Suzuki SV650, the Gladius matches sporty performance with a comfortable slim chassis.

Ahead of its arrival in Australia in the coming months, show goers will get a sneak peak of the Gladius' distinctive look, with a compact trellis frame, edgy lines and coloured steel tubing to match its engine cover.

Recently launched by dual and defending World and AMA Supercross Champion Chad Reed, the latest version of Suzuki's revolutionary, fuel-injected RM-Z450 will also be on display in Sydney.

Currently undefeated in the new Australasian Supercross Championship with Reed, the RM-Z450 took Suzuki to the 2008 FIM MX1 Manufacturers World Championship.

As the Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS) continues to give learner riders more choice in New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania, Northern Territory, A.C.T. and Victoria, Suzuki will have models from its exciting LAMS range - the largest in Australia - on display.

Suzuki's racing pedigree will also be represented, with Team Joe Rocket Suzuki's three-time Australian Superbike Champion Shawn Giles and Brayden Carr, 2008 Formula Xtreme Cup Champion on a GSX-R1000, to conduct a number of autograph sessions.

An extensive fleet of Suzuki's street bikes, cruisers, scooters, off-road motorcycles and ATVs will complete a massive display at Sydney Olympic Park between 21-23 November.
