The GSX series was a range of sports touring machines manufactured by Suzuki from 1980. After the two-valve GS series, the first GSX motorcycles represented the next step in Suzuki's road bike range.
The two-valve engines remained in production in parallel with the four-valve units, while the two-valve four-cylinder machines gained a shaft drive and powered more touring-oriented models, such as the GS 850G and GS 1100G. The GSX series was represented by motorcycles with a performance orientation.
In 2023, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer launched the Suzuki GsX-8S, a new machine designed and engineered from the ground up as a fresh naked streetfighter with sharp and agile performance suited for a vast range of riders.
The 2023 machine was equipped with a Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) that included Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) for engine map selection, Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS) with three modes and a kill switch, Suzuki's Bi-directional Quick Shift System for smoother and quicker gear shifts, Suzuki Easy Start System, and a Low RPM Assist function.
The 2023 Suzuki GSX-8S was powered by a newly-developed 746cc four-stroke two-cylinder liquid-cooled engine managed by a fuel injection system, boasting 83 hp at 8,500 rpm and 78 Nm (58 lb-ft) torque with a maximum peak force at 6,800 rpm.
The 2023 machine was available with Pearl Tech White, Pearl Cosmic Blue, and Metallic Matte Black No.2/Glass Sparkle Black liveries and was for sale with a base price starting at $8,849.
