Both bikes pack an all-new engine and come packed to the gills with features

Suzuki GSX-8S And V-Strom 800DE Unveiled

Suzuki has pulled the wraps off two all-new motorcycles; the GSX-8S and the V-Strom 800DE. While the former is a streetfighter slotting below the GSX-S1000, the latter is a proper off-road-friendly ADV positioned above the popular V-Strom 650XT. Both the bikes get modern features such as a 5-inch TFT, three traction control modes, bi-directional quickshifter, ride-by-wire throttle and more! Here’s everything they pack:

GSX-8S

Suzuki GSX-8S Headlight

  • GSX-S1000-inspired vertically-stacked LED headlight.

  • Brand new 776cc parallel-twin mill making 82.9PS and 78Nm.

  • KYB-sourced inverted fork and monoshock.

Suzuki GSX-8S Instrument Cluster

  • Twin 310mm discs brakes up front and a 240mm unit at the rear.

  • Three colour schemes: Pearl Cosmic Blue, Pearl Tech White and a Matte and Sparkle Black

V-Strom 800DE

Suzuki V-Strom 800DE

  • V-Strom 1050-inspired styling.

  • Fully-adjustable suspension from Showa with a generous 220mm of ground clearance.

Suzuki V-Strom 800DE

  • 776cc parallel-twin engine making 84.3PS and 78Nm.

  • 21- and 17-inch spoke wheel setup

  • Four riding modes and two ABS modes 

  • 20-litre fuel tank

  • Available in three paint options: Yellow, Matte Mechanical Grey & a Glass Sparkle Black

Suzuki V-Strom 800DE Instrument Cluster

Suzuki says both the bikes will be available at European dealerships from around March 2023. We do hope Suzuki launches the bikes in India too. The V-Strom 800DE, especially, could act as the perfect rival to the ever-popular Triumph Tiger 900 and the BMW F 850 GS. The GSX-8S, on the other hand, would go up against the likes of the Triumph Street Triple R, and the Yamaha MT-07.
