Suzuki confirms GSX-8R for Australia

Suzuki have announced the introduction of the GSX-8R at the 2023 EICMA motorcycle show. It will share the same engine and chassis as the GSX-8S and V-Strom 800. Expected to hit Australian showrooms in April 2024, it will be priced from $14,990 ride away.

With sports bike styling, the GSX-8R combines practical real-world performance, rider-friendly controllability and advanced equipment features. Powered by a parallel twin 776cm3 DOHC engine, the frame is built around it to form a complete package.

Every aspect of the design is geared to delivering a satisfying experience to riders who desire more power than the 650cm3 class can deliver, with both the chassis and free-revving engine designed to respond faithfully in a non-assertive fashion.

Other features include 310mm front disc brakes, with dual mounted radial callipers, cast aluminium wheels shod with Dunlop SportsMax RoadSport2 tyres, Hitachi Astemo (Showa) link-type rear suspension, and inverted telescopic, oil damped front suspension.

A 14-litre fuel tank, multi-function instrument panel and Suzuki’s clutch assist system complete the GSX-8R package. In the looks department, the new model features an aggressive, mass-forward look that is slim, compact and well balanced.

To be offered in three liveries, including Metallic Triton Blue, Pearl Ignite Yellow and Metallic Matt Sword Silver, it’s available with a host of genuine accessories. Among them are billet brake and clutch levers, bar ends, engine and bodywork protection, and heated grips.

A single seat cowl can also be optioned. Customers can reserve their GSX-8R using the “Build Your Bike” tool on the Suzuki Motorcycles Australia website. As an added bonus, pre-orders will receive a bonus “soft case side set” valued at $889 (conditions apply).
