Suzuki GSX-8S Reviews

POSTED: 31/05/2023

The 2023 Suzuki GSX-8S

Reviews, verdicts and facts

There's got to be some solid reasons for MCN to give the Suzuki GSX-8S a 5-star 'Owner's Reliability Rating'. This bike is such a big deal for Suzuki because they're entering a competitive market with their first brand new 'big bike' since the SV650 in 1999.

With the same engine as the V-Strom, what else does it fit into its smaller body?

Scroll down for a collection of reviews from moto vloggers who all have a lot to say about this bike...


"It's a bike you don't have to go mental on to be entertained by!"

"It's a more balanced, considered package with no significant criticisms – everything from comfort to suspension performance contributes to an overall feeling of harmony..."


"This bike is well positioned as a street commuter, it’s easy to ride in busy towns with nimble character, a really light clutch with good gearing, and comfy enough to ride for long stints."


"Regardless of where you ride the 2023 Suzuki GSX-8S, the motor is the star of the show." "Unlike some twins, the 8S pulls to the redline, refusing to flatten out."

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
