2023 Suzuki GSX-8S | Video Review

Testing the 2023 Suzuki GSX-8S in the Martime Alps of France.

In this video review, we test the all-new 2023 Suzuki GSX-8S, a middleweight naked sportbike powered by a 776cc 4-stroke DOHC parallel-Twin that’s also found in the V-Strom 800DE. Priced at just $8,849 in the U.S., the GSX-8S delivers style, performance, sophistication, and versatility in an affordable package.

We traveled to France for the global press launch of the Suzuki GSX-8S, where we tested the bike on city streets and on mountain roads in the Maritime Alps. Watch the video for our impressions, and check out our detailed First Ride Review.
