Usable power and solid road holding on the Suzuki GSX-8S
I first clapped eyes on the Suzuki GSX-8S just over six months ago just ahead of its public reveal at the 2022 Eicma trade show and I’ve been hooked on the idea of living with one ever since.
Back in 2018 I spent 12 months and 15,000 magical miles aboard the firm’s V-twin SV650X and wanted another slice of mid-sized, manageable naked fun that I could use on the road without having to worry about dash cams, and jail time.
Flash forward to the back end of May 2023 and I’m picking up the keys for a GSX-8S, ready to spend the next year putting it through its paces on my favourite Lincolnshire roads, along my dull as dishwater A16 commute, on a couple of cheeky track sessions, and a few days on tour. I’m a lucky so-and-so and I can’t wait to get stuck in.
