Suzuki’s GSX1250FA was hailed as a class-leading sports tourer by MCN when it was launched earlier this year as a brilliant combination of value and fun.
The result has seen the bike leap to the top of the sports tourer sales chart.
Suzuki GB head of sales David Taylor said: “The GSX1250FA is a sports tourer that doesn't bust the bank. While we've seen other new models in this segment offer all manner of equipment and rider aides, it's clear from the July registration figures that our customers rate value and raw ability as the priority."
Suzuki has also introduced the ST version, offering panniers and top-box as standard equipment for the retail price of £8,324.
