2023 Suzuki GSX-8S
Ready to make a statement? Swing a leg over the all-new 2023 Suzuki GSX-8S and let your riding speak volumes. Engineered from the ground up as an innovative path for future Suzuki sportbikes, the GSX-8S is a brand-new naked street fighter with a robust engine, an agile chassis, a suite of rider aids, plus stunning looks with a smart price that’s a statement to your brilliance.
Joining Suzuki’s popular GSX-S series of street fighters, the GSX-8S is the ideal response to rider demands in the mid-size naked street bike category. In response to these demands, Suzuki engineers created a fully new package in a complementary engine and chassis size packed with the most desirable features in its category.KEY FEATURES
The fully new GSX-8S is a thoroughly modern street fighter design that sets a trend for an exciting new generation of Suzuki motorcycles ready to carry the brand into the future.
New, compact 776cc parallel twin engine uses a 270-degree firing order for strong torque production and is equipped with Suzuki’s exclusive Cross Balancer system for smooth operation.
The Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) smooths shifting and engine braking, while shifting has never been easier with the Bi-directional Quick Shift system.
High-quality KYB suspension delivers controlled handling while ABS-equipped NISSIN radial-mounted 4-piston brake calipers with dual, floating brake rotors provide controlled stopping power.
The new design 776cc parallel-twin DOHC engine delivers a superb balance of smooth controllable torque-rich power from low RPM and freely revs up to its peak power output.
The 270-degree crankshaft configuration provides a similar, but more powerful experience as provided by the 90-degree V-twin engine used in the SV650 models.
The spaced nature of the engine’s power pulses enhances traction and contributes to strong power output at extremely low speeds, making the GSX-8S easy to maneuver in slow traffic or through tight corners.
Suzuki Cross Balancer technology, patented by Suzuki and used for the first time on a production motorcycle, helps create a compact, lightweight design that delivers smooth operation.
The six-speed transmission features gear ratios that deliver exciting acceleration, whether shifting normally or when using the standard-equipment Bi-directional Quick Shift system to shift without clutch operation.
The GSX-8S’s precise shift linkage helps the rider easily and quickly select the ideal gear for the riding conditions.
A sensor on the shift rod sends shifter movement data to the ECM, so the Bi-directional Quick Shift system precisely responds to the rider’s actions.
The transmission’s output is managed by the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS). This system works like a slipper clutch by allowing a small amount of clutch slip for smoother downshifts. It also works as an assist clutch, increasing plate pressure under acceleration, but always keeps the clutch lever pull light and precise.
Designed around the new, compact parallel twin engine and constructed with rugged steel pipe, the GSX-8S’s backbone style frame was developed to provide excellent straight-line stability, to contribute to nimble handling, and to perform well in the city, on twisty roads, and at highway speeds.
The engine is suspended and precisely fit to the frame to create a rigid chassis that also provides the compliance required for sport riding.
