New Suzuki GSX-8R

POSTED: 07/11/2023


New Suzuki GSX-8R

The new GSX-8R becomes the latest new model from Suzuki to utilise the new 776cc, parallel twin cylinder engine with its 270° crankshaft configuration, with common features shared with the
new-for-2023 GSX-8S, including a steel frame designed to contribute straight line stability and agile handling and separate aluminium subframe, cast aluminium wheels, and dual, radially mounted front calipers.

  • New Showa suspension provides more support and increased damping force over the GSX-8S to account for the increased from weight bias and delivers a controlled, sporty ride.
  • Lower handlebars also contribute to a sportier riding position, with more of the rider’s weight over the front end.
  • The package is wrapped in new, angular, GSX-R-inspired bodywork.
  • There are selectable power modes, traction control, and a bi-directional quickshifter as standard, with all information displayed on a 5” colour TFT dash.

Engine features:
-    The 776cc parallel twin, DOHC engine delivers a balance of smooth, controllable power from low rpm through to free-revving performance at the top end.

-    The Suzuki Cross Balancer is a patented biaxial primary balancer that contributes to smooth operation and a compact, lightweight engine design.
-    Long-reach iridium spark plugs help enhance combustion efficiency.
-    Cooling system inlet control helps maintain consistent engine temperature and eliminates rough idle while warming the engine in cold weather.
-    The electronic throttle bodies help achieve faithful response and a linear feeling to throttle action.
-    The two-into-one exhaust system features a dual-stage catalytic converter inside the collector that helps meet Euro 5 emissions standards and a striking, short design.
-    The six-speed transmission enables smooth shifting and improved controllability.
-    Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) helps reduce fatigue on long rides and contributes to smoother shifting.

Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) features:

-    Low RPM Assist function helps maintain engine idle speed for smoother and easier starts.

Chassis features:
-    Steel frame contributes to straight line stability and agile handling.

-    The windscreen helps airflow and helps the GSX-8R slip through the air with more efficiency and stability, while also reducing fatigue on long rides.
-    Dual four-piston radially-mounted front brake calipers act on 310mm discs to provide sure stopping power and controllability.
-    Cast aluminium wheels featuring a unique design and contribute to agile handling and a sporty appearance.
-    Dunlop SPORTMAX Roadsport2 tyres aid in predictable handling and sporty performance.
-    Showa SFF-BP* (Separate Function Fork – Big Piston) inverted front forks provide support and sporty performance as well as delivering a smooth, controllable ride.

Styling features:
-    Styling pays tribute to Suzuki’s sportsbike heritage while creating a new design that symbolises the future of Suzuki’s sportsbike design.
-    Wind tunnel-developed fairing lowers the drag coefficient, improves high-speed stability and makes touring more comfortable by providing the rider with better wind protection.
-    The bodywork features flat surfaces and sharp lines that emphasise the GSX-8R’s compact, slim and well-balanced proportions.
-    Exposed parts such as the engine and seat rails are painted to highlight the mechanical appeal of functional beauty.
-    A short exhaust design accentuates the slim, compact design.
-    The compact LED rear combination light and LED licence plate light mounted on the slim rear fender make the GSX-8R rear end look short and slim.
