The dates for Suzuki Live 2023 have been announced, with a mid-summer weekend at the Cadwell Park circuit. 

As before, Suzuki Live 2023, which will take place on the weekend of 15-16 July, is the celebration of Suzuki motorcycles put on by Suzuki GB, and bringing together fans and owners of the Japanese marque’s bikes, as well as some of the brand’s former riders. 

Said riders include three-times British Superbike Champion John Reynolds; 2016 National Superstock 1000 Champion and former Suzuki rider in the British Supersport Championship, Taylor Mackenzie; and former Grand Prix rider for Suzuki, Steve Parrish.

The major change for Suzuki Live 2023 compared to the past is that the event is now spread over two days, compared to the single-day event of last year. Like last year, though, the 2023 edition of Suzuki Live will take place at the Cadwell Park circuit in Lincolnshire, which will also host the eighth round of the 2023 British Superbike Championship on August Bank Holiday weekend.

On-track action across the weekend will include classic race bike parades, as well as track sessions for both modern and classic motorcycles (split between pre- and post-2000), with novice, intermediate, and experienced groups available. Booking for track sessions (£229) and for spots on the race bikes parades (£199) can be made on the Classic Bike Trackdays website.

Additionally, the new-for-2023 ‘Adventure Bike Zone’ will allow owners of motorcycles from Suzuki’s V-Strom range the opportunity to take their own bike off-road; while the new Suzuki V-Strom 1050DE and Suzuki V-Strom 800DE will be available for test rides.

Also available for test rides, although on the roads around Cadwell Park - rather than the aforementioned Adventure Bike Zone, of course - will be other models from Suzuki’s 2023 range, including the Suzuki GSX-8S, Suzuki GSX-S1000GT, Suzuki GSX-S1000, and the Suzuki Hayabusa.

Suzuki GB’s head of motorcycle marketing, Ian Bland, said: “Last year’s Suzuki Live event took place in glorious sunshine and was a spectacular day out for us and for everyone that joined. So much so, we couldn’t wait to extend it to a full weekend of track activity, parades, displays, and entertainment; and also add a new adventure bike zone. 

“It’s going to be a full weekend of Suzuki-themed fun, and we’re excited to join our customers on road and track this summer.”
