    It is also equipped with the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S) electronic control system for various riding conditions. The G (gravel) mode in the traction control system and cancellable anti-lock brake system (ABS) for the rear brake allow riders to take control of the motorbike over gravel roads according to their preferences.

    The adjustable front and rear suspensions, large-diameter 21-inch front wheels, and semi-block pattern tires add to its off-roading capabilities.

    While carrying on the tradition of the V-Strom series, the lines of the bodywork are made sharper with bold accent color parts at the tip of the front cowling and below the 20-liter fuel tank.

    On the other hand, the GSX-8S naked motorcycle is aimed at riders treading the paved path. Unlike, the abovementioned V-Strom 800DE, the GSX-8S is through and through a street bike.

    Nevertheless, it also has a 776cc liquid-cooled two-cylinder DOHC engine and a six-speed transmission.
