Suzuki Motorcycle India has teased the GSX-8R motorcycle at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024. Due to this, the enthusiasm about its launch has increased among the people. The Suzuki GSX-8R has been seen with the Suzuki V-Strom 800 DI. Let us know about it.

At the 2023 EICMA, the Suzuki GSX-8R made its world premiere. Mechanically speaking, it is the same as the GSX-8S. Its engine is a 776cc DOHC twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. It generates a peak torque of 78 Nm at 6,800 rpm and 82 horsepower at 8,500 rpm. This engine has a bi-directional quick shifter and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

With its vertically stacked headlamps that divide the front cowl, which is a component of the large fairing, the GSX-8R has a sleek appearance. While the GSX-8R has unique twin LED DRLs, the rearview mirror is integrated into the fairing. Instead of the GSX-8S's single taillight, the back receives a new two-piece design.

The Suzuki GSX-8R comes with a plethora of new features from the manufacturer. It has multiple riding modes, dual-channel ABS, traction control, an easy start system, and low RPM assistance. The bike has a mono-shock at the back and USD forks up front to finish the suspension setup.

Regarding its launch, the company has not released any official information. That being said, it is anticipated that the GSX 8R will soon be released in India. The Yamaha R7 will be a formidable rival for the upcoming motorcycle.
