If the gears change hard you are probably not using the right kind of oil in your engine. Use only a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Full synthetic oils will help the motorcycle run cooler and shift easier. Suzuki sells a 15w-50 full synthetic oil that is reasonably priced. Also , do not tap the shifter with your foot when shifting. Place your toe , pressing gently against the pedal , and then shift.

Why is gear shift rough when accelerating quickly?


you need to let the RPMs drop down to match the speed you're going for the next gear, though this is less efficient than power shifting through.
Unless you're slipping the clutch to smooth out the gear change, yes, there will be a definite surge every time you grab a gear in a manual transmission vehicle. Most automatics will also shift noticeably harder at WOT.
For more sedate, "normal" driving, you can shift slower and feather the throttle a bit more to smooth out the gear changes, but when you're ******* the throttle as soon as the clutch engages, it's going to be a firm shift. I hope is ok.
