Suzuki Philippines unveiled two all-new models in the mid-weight segment—the GSX-8S street sport bike and the V-STROM 800 DE adventure bike—at its recent Power of 800 event held at Timberland Highlands Resort.
The 800cc big bikes were developed with lightweight and maneuverable features for a wide range of riders. Both models offer optimized balance of rideability required both in daily commuting and in touring powered by Suzuki’s new parallel twin DOHC engine
The V-STROM 800DE and the GSX-8S share the newly developed 776cc parallel twin engine, which suppresses vibration using the Suzuki Cross Balancer. It utilizes a Suzuki-patented biaxial primary balancer, where two balancers are positioned at 90° to the crankshaft, a first on any production motorcycle.
The GSX-8S is available in three colors—Pearl Cosmic Blue, Pearl Tech White, and Metallic Matte Black— at an SRP of P585,000.
Meanwhile, the V-STROM 800 DE is available at an SRP of P699,000. It’s also available in three colors: Champion Yellow, Glass Matte Metallic Gray, and Glass Sparkle Black.
