NEXT GENERATION PERFORMANCE
A new era for sportsbikes, where superbike looks combine with real-world performance and usability. A punchy engine packed with torque, housed in an agile, responsive chassis, with performance enhanced by a sophisticated suite of electronics for an unrivalled experience on the road or track.
Available in the following colours
A new engine for a new era of sportsbikes, the new GSX-8R uses Suzuki’s new parallel twin engine, which delivers torque in abundance across the rev range, provides an exciting character and feeling thanks to its 270-degree crankshaft design, and enables a slim chassis design thanks to its compact layout.
SUZUKI INTELLIGENT RIDE SYSTEM (SIRS)
The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) is a collection of advanced electronic rider assist systems, which allow the rider to choose the settings for each system to best suit their preference or to suit the conditions. SIRS helps enhance an already exciting riding experience that inspires confidence and frees riders to concentrate on enjoying the ride.
SUZUKI DRIVE MODE SELECTOR (SDMS)
SDMS leverages the electronic throttle control system to offer a choice between three modes that deliver different power characteristics to match the riding conditions or preferred riding style. The settings for each mode were thoroughly tested to maximise the GSX-8R’s performance in various scenarios.
COLOUR TFT DISPLAY
The GSX-8R uses a 5-inch colour TFT display. Clearly legible high-quality information displays keep you fully aware of all the bike’s systems and settings, and supply vital real-time operating status information. The tachometer also serves as a programmable engine rpm indicator. It blinks when the engine speed reaches the preset rpm entered by the rider. It can be set in 250rpm increments within a range from 4,000rpm to 9,750rpm with a function that lets you display large pop-up alerts and reminder. Manual or automatic switching settings for the day (white) and night (black) display modes let you maximise visibility at any hour and in any riding situation.
The new 776cc, DOHC, parallel twin engine with four valves per cylinder features a long-stroke configuration that delivers a fine balance of smooth, controllable power from low rpm and the enjoyable feeling of free-revving performance through to the top end. The engine features a 270° crankshaft design, which delivers a smooth ride with lots of torque, positive traction, and a unique, thrilling rumble.
This patented biaxial primary balancer positions its two balancers at 90° to the crankshaft, marking a first among production motorcycles. This patented mechanism suppresses vibration to contribute to smooth operation, and it also helps achieve a lightweight powerplant that is more compact from front to rear.
Designed as to pair perfectly with the parallel twin engine platform and made from steel tube sections with optimised rigidity, the frame is engineered to contribute to agile handling, to provide excellent straight-line stability, and to perform equally in urban environments or on more sporty rides on twistier roads.
The GSX-8R uses forged aluminium, separate handlebars. The use of aluminium not only minimises weight, but the pressure applied in the forging process also contributes to creating highly rigid components. The lower, more forward placement of the handlebars provides a sportier riding position, placing more of the rider’s weight over the front wheel.
COWL AND MIRRORS
The windscreen and cowl for the GSX-8R was developed through extensive wind tunnel testing to aid aerodynamic performance and help reduce fatigue on long rides by cutting wind noise and preventing buffeting. The cowl-mounted mirrors are designed and tested to enhance aerodynamic performance and wind protection.
The Bi-directional Quick Shift System allows riders to shift up without closing the throttle or downshift without blipping it, so removes the need to operate the clutch lever once the bike is in gear and moving.
The vertically stacked pair of hexagonal LED headlights use a bright mono-focus light source that provides the rider with a clear view of the road ahead. In terms of design, the vertical orientation of the thin, compact headlight assembly topped by an LED position light creates a sharp look with unique character that makes the front end look light and ready for action.
