Top 5 Things We Like About Suzuki’s GSX-8R for Street Riders

These are the top five features of the Suzuki GSX-8R.

Suzuki Motor comes out swinging in the new year with its 2024 GSX-8R. Designed as a more all-around, street-going sportbike, the GSX-8R is positioned adjacent to Suzuki’s awesome GSX-R line of racy, high-revving inline-four sportbikes. We’ve reported on the GSX-8R in detail during the 2024 Suzuki GSX-8R Review With Videos article, but for those seeking the bullet point version, here are the top five features of the 2024 Suzuki GSX-8R for streetbike riders.

  1. This 776cc parallel-twin engine, it has gobs of power, it feels like a V-twin!
  2. This slick-shifting gearbox with an electronic quickshifter on the up- and downshifts.
  3. The suspension offers 5 inches of travel and tons of road holding. We really like it.
  4. The ergonomics on this bike work well for a 6-foot-tall, 205-pound rider, and it is very comfortable for us.
  5. Because this motorcycle is very easy to ride, and it looks cool, and it costs just south of $9,500.

We’ll see you in the next episode, folks.
