Told the dealer, dealer informed suzuki uk, waiting for a reply……. Like it’s been said on here the issue I have is that not many on the road yet so no complaints other than me
If Suzuki's been informed (they should have known, but...) then they'd want to get ahead of it before they ship a lot of bikes and have to deal with the issue retroactively. Got to be a simple explanation...it's not like cruise control isn't in wide use everywhere.

Keep us informed...and thanks.

Hey Bikemaddan, thought of you earlier today. I have my GT 5 days now. Picked it up Saturday, rode home, all good. Cruise control worked a treat. Went out today for a quick blat. Turned on the CC on the motorway, worked fine. Got off the motorway, switched it off at the button. Did some suburban streets and back onto the motorway. Bike had not been turned off since leaving home. Anyways, back on the motorway, press the CC, flashes 3 times, goes off.
I tried a few random things, she was like nah, not interested. So I dont know if it has anything to do with the mileage and the issue starts, or what exactly, but my km's are now at 100. I'll be passing on this info to my Suzuki dealership here in Australia. Should just be a software update I'm sure.

Also, my bike feels a bit vibey at 110kmh and 120kmh. Even some lower speeds in 4th. Do you have the same issue?

I would think you are correct with the Cruise Control issue being software. If the vibration continues I would have them check the Balance first and also how the front wheel was removed and replaced, I am no expert but if it was the from the wheel was not sitting correctly on the axel and lower forks that can have an effect similar to what you are saying. I am sure one of our members was having a similar issue and checked 3 things they were how the wheel was mounted, then the callipers were straight or that should be sitting even and I can not for the life of me think or the 3rd one. As I said I am no expert and this could be part or all of the vibration. O the last thing I would also check to see is if the tyre has been seated correctly on the wheel. that can be done just by checking if the bead line on the tyre's sidewall is even to the wheel.

Thanks mate. I'll have a look or let the guys at the shop do it. I too thought it may be a speed balance issue on one of the wheels or both. Anyways, as long as I know its not supposed to be that vibey, then I know it needs something to be done.

Reczilla just did 300 miles of testing and he mentioned cc being absolutely perfect everytime.

I am really curious what could be a cause or if there’s any situation where it feels to turn off ie. If it detects wheel slippage does it turn off?

I wonder about the CC setup, with the "ON" button on one switchgear, and the "SET" button on the opposite handlebar switchgear...possibly a clue?

Hi, sorry to hear about your cc issues, mine corrected itself a week before first service and has worked ever since, there’s a few others now complaining of cc issues so it has to be a software upgrade at some point……… sorry but no vibes for me

Do you have to turn it on everytime, Ie. You have cruise set, and you hit brake, bike slows down.

do you then have to hit “on” then “set again?” Or just hit set
You can disengage CC in 2 ways, either by pressing the brake, or rolling the throttle forward just past the idle position.

Once disengaged, u just have to press the reset to go back to previous set speed, or the set button at the new desired speed.

This CC issue seems to be a "whack-a-mole" thing. Surprised Suzuki isn't all over this, and hasn't issued any service directive to dealers. Important to make sure this isn't widespread, or the model will have a black eye.

I wonder if it doesnt really want someone to ride with CC on entire time before the 450 mile mark. makes sense, all the demos are broken in so if there was a limiter it would be off.

should be addressed in manual though.

Mine started working after 450 miles
now that yours works perfect, can you without a doubt say you love your bike? because I have 15k cash in my pocket (I actually pulled it out today) to pay for my bike in full when it arrives in next few weeks. (US) I sold all my stuff, so I no longer have a motorcycle. but I really think I will love this.

MPG been pretty reasonable w ya?

I honestly love it, comfort, handling, power and price of course…… breaks are ok and I wouldn’t get the same tires next time they’re due, t32’s I love but might try the new road 6, overal love the bike!

What if it’s something to do with break in?
maybe it doesn’t want it to be fully used til after certain mileage the entire time.

madmike said his fixed itself and works great now with nothing needed but he rode it more
As unusual an explanation as that might seem, it also makes a certain amount of sense. Breaking in a bike is best done on curving, hilly roads, with lots of throttle changes. It could make sense that the initial break-in period has a hidden program to prevent cruising at one speed for very long, cutting out the CC if it senses one speed for a set period of time.
All of my bikes have been broken in on a 75 mile mountain canyon ride, with many changes of speed, lean angle, etc., and they've been super strong bikes because of it.

I like this idea...

thats actually exactly what im thinking, all the demo bikes are already broken in, the only people who complained was the very first people who had them, like one or two commenters mentioned it I thunk I read once. but those same bikes had miles on them afterwards for future reviewers so works perfect

id totally put this in the system to prevent someone riding 600miles from the first go at 1 speed, and then limiting warranty work from people not seating the rings right. under load, varying gears and speeds, so limit the amount of CC use.

now, it should be mentioned, id actually prefer suzuki straight say, we limit the use of cc for the first few hundred miles or disabled entirely til ie 300miles or something so people arent confused and think bikes broken.
