Suzuki GSX-8S

Suzuki has launched new colours for a number of its bikes at Motorcycle Live, including for the Suzuki GSX-8S, GSX-S1000GT, and 125 Address.

The Suzuki GSX-8S has been one of the more exciting motorcycles to be launched in recent times, aiming the 776cc parallel twin-cylinder it shares with the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE (and now RE) at the sports naked market.

At Motorcycle Live, Suzuki has revealed a new colour for the GSX-8S, with ‘Glass Matt Mechanical Grey’ joining the existing ‘Cosmic Blue’ in 2024. Additionally, while the ‘Metallic Matt Black’ colour remains for 2024, it is updated with a blue subframe, and blue wheels and ‘8S’ logos.

The Suzuki GSX-S1000GT and GT+ also get new colours for 2024, with a new ‘Sparkle Black’ colour available on both variants in addition to the ‘Metallic Triton Blue’ and an all-red colour. 

The Suzuki  GSX-S1000 is also renewed for 2024, with white side panels and blue stripes brought to the ‘Metallic Triton Blue’ colour to create what Suzuki says is a paint scheme “reminiscent of classic Suzuki liveries of old.” A new ‘Matt Sword Silver’ arrives for 2024, complete with red side panels and a red seat unit, and there is also a ‘Glass Sparkle Black’ choice.

Finally, the retro-styled Suzuki Address 125 scooter gains a new ‘Metallic Matt Platinum Silver’ colour alongside its existing ‘Metallic Dark Blue’ and ‘Metallic Matt Bordeaux Red’ choices.

All of the new colours will be displayed by Suzuki at Motorcycle Live 2023 for the duration of the show, which runs until 26 November.
