The Suzuki GSX-R was a series of sports motorcycles made by Suzuki over several generations since 1984. The first GSX-R model debuted in 1984 and was for sale only in Japan, taking advantage of licensing laws, which prohibited motorcycles with engines larger than 400cc.
In 2023, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer unveiled the new Suzuki GSX-8R sports model at the EICMA show in Italy, Milan. The bike was presented alongside the GSX-S1000GX crossover model.
The 2024 model year Suzuki GSX-8R is based on the GSX-8S naked model and is a sports model that allows riders of all ages to enjoy various types of riding. The bike is available in three color schemes: Metallic Triton Blue with Black, Pearl Ignite Yellow with Black, and Metallic Matte Sword Silver with red wheels at an MSRP of $9,440.
In the visual department, the bike packs a half fairing with a small windscreen, a two-piece dual seat, an under-belly exhaust system, a black-finished engine, and 10-spoke lightweight wheels.
The bike packs an inverted Showa SFF-BP telescopic fork on the front and a single shock absorber on the rear, delivering excellent suspension performance and handling.
The 2024 Suzuki GSX-8R takes power from a 776cc four-stroke parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine and sends it to the rear end through a six-speed manual gearbox with a wet multi-plate clutch and a final chain drive.
