The Suzuki GSX-8R introduces an exciting new expression of sportbike appeal, performance and riding pleasure. Designed to appeal to riders of all ages and skill levels, the GSX-8R brings the fun of riding a sportbike to every outing. The harmonious pairing of Suzuki’s parallel-twin engine with an optimised chassis layout offers riders power, handling, and comfort that faithfully follows their will and puts them in full control.

Wrapped in the unique styling of a modern interpretation of Suzuki’s sportbike heritage, the GSX-8R features an aggressive, mass-forward look that is slim, compact, well-balanced, and ready for action.

At the core of the GSX-8R is Suzuki’s new-generation parallel twin 776cm3 DOHC engine with the frame built around it to form a perfect package. Every aspect of the design is geared to deliver a satisfying experience to riders who desire more power than the 650cm3 class can deliver, who aspire to ride a bike with the sharp styling of a thoroughbred sportbike, and who desire a satisfying ride that is reassuring and reliable.

With progressive features ranging from its parallel twin engine, robust frame, separately forged aluminium handlebars, uniquely shaped aluminium swingarm, inverted front forks, dual front disc brakes with four-piston radial-mount calipers, LED lighting and colour TFT LCD multifunction instrument panel, to advanced electronic control systems that include Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, Suzuki Traction Control System, the Bi-Directional Quick Shift system and the Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle System, the GSX- 8R is a sportbike destined to lead the way toward an exciting new era of riding pleasure.
