    Suzuki GSX-8S/8R elgibility

    Where will the new 8S/8R be slotted? Obviously Twins, but will it be allowed in all LW Twins eligible classes, or just the same as the RS660? I just checked the Rulebook and it isn't listed. It has been, as of yesterday, officially homologated for MA Twins Cup.

    Bike hp tq weight
    R7 67 46 414
    RS 89 45 403
    8S/R 78 54 445

    All values pulled from Cycle World articles to have a consistent source, but they did not mention having the 8S on the dyno, just repeated the crank specs. Actual dyno numbers range between 76-78whp.

    The TAC will discuss and make a determination.
