The muffler and catalytic converter are tucked away below the chassis for a cleaner look that exposes the 8R’s aluminum swingarm.

The Suzuki GSX-8R is the fully-faired sibling of the Suzuki GSX-8S, which was simply launched in 2023. Each bikes are powered by an all-new 776cc 4-stroke DOHC parallel-Twin that can be discovered within the V-Strom 800 fashions. The tubular handlebar from the 8S is traded for a pair of clip-ons on the GSX-8R which can be about 2 inches decrease and a smidge farther away from a rider, and the KYB suspension on the 8S has been changed with Showa suspension on the 8R.

To show the breadth of capabilities supplied by the GSX-8R, Suzuki invited us to Palm Desert in California for a journey on rural and mountain roads, adopted the following day by periods at a racetrack. Watch the video beneath to see the 2024 Suzuki GSX-8R in motion, and learn our full evaluation right here.
