The only why the 2010 Suzuki GS500F feature an “X” in the model is the twin-cylinder engine, a half of the 1000 powerplant as we like to it and the upright riding position is almost worthy of a standard rather than a sporty one as the GS to consider itself.

Suzuki the versatility and life-long performance of the almost two decades ago, so the model year is worthy of proudly celebratedby owners, as the maker only ads new graphics and a modified White/Blue color


Dragging its roots back in 1989, when would have presented a bike equipped with an 487 cc two cylinders engine derived the one on the 1980 Suzuki GS500E was among the first Suzuki , the GS500E, as it was also called, out from the very beginning as the of a success. The four-… DOHC was used but this time were only two cylinders, a 270 degree crank. The bike was used for commuting purposes to its good horsepower, decent and light weight, but what it so great was the highly reliable and exceptional fuel economy.

The model year saw the replacement of handlebars with standard while the rest of the bike the same.

For 1994 Suzuki that the GS500E should be refreshed, so the rims were now and the frame color was different for precise model year.

built and ideal for a variety of purposes and preferences, the Suzuki saw no major revisions during its days.

In 1996, the bike would featured an upgrade at the front system.

In 2001 the GS500 was as to a revision as it could get. Its changed from a two-circuit (pilot jet and main jet) to a design (pilot jet, jet, main jet) to with better carburetion the rev range. This model also featured a redesigned rear plastics, seat, and light but its overall design pretty much strict.

that the “E” designation was as a preamble of an upcoming change.

The sold for one more year it was removed from the U.S market in

In 2004, after a year of the GS500F came to fill in the left by the GS500. The bike was similar to the previous E model, but now a fully enclosed fairing gives it a sportier, more look, and implicit more protection for the rider as it radically aerodynamics. This is also the when an oil cooler was added.

The years didn’t brought any apart from scheme and changes, something that us reckon that Suzuki the same recipe as in the case of the “E” model, enjoying as as possible of the reliable motorcycle.

If this was a perfect world, we have all started on a GS500, no year or version, but as it is not, was also in for a piece of the cake. The with which the GS had, and has, to share the success of and ease of riding is the Kawasaki 500R. The competition’s bike is as fun as it is and as user-friendly as it is comfortable. As you will the Ninja is similar to the GS in many

For example, at the heart of this platform is the Ninja 500R’s liquid-cooled, inline twin-cylinder engine. Its dual overhead and four valves per cylinder, for a robust motor that is great for starters and rousing to riders. Claiming 51 mpg, the engine is less economical Suzuki’s 59 mpg engine.

The Kawi indeed as more of a gas eater, so either that or appearance going to help you make a as the MSRP for a 2009 model is exactly the same as for the 2009 GS500F $5,499.


The Suzuki GS500F features that is inspired on the GSX-R machines as, starting with it presents a full fairing the purpose of increasing rider by providing an aerodynamic sport

In order for the bike to really out with its new fairing, Suzuki redesigned the fuel tank, and rear end of the motorcycle. It resulted a versatile entry-level model like a superbike machine but still retains the comfort by the relaxed riding position of the and seat.

Despite the presence of a fairing, the Suzuki GS500F as aggressive looking as the competition as the is inspired on those Ninja from the 1990s and isn’t as as the subject of this review.

The main color combination the same as in 2008 White/Blue graphics discretely change.


The Suzuki GS500F is to deliver predictable power and to get accustomed with versatility at the possible price. Having a seat height, it is destined to riders, but can also become the friend of short or female

Its four-…, twin cylinder, air cooled DOHC engine it with all the needed power it is still economical, but most dependable. Those 34mm carburetors should receive all the for that as they are the needed from a chain of pieces form a reliable engine smooth power delivery.

experiencing corners I opened up the in order to see if the strong acceleration in any way, but the bike remains balanced. I wanted to see how the bike under these conditions beginners often do similar and their ride has to be very so as they won’t meet the The Suzuki GS500F certainly is, and its won’t have the “joy” to they haven’t made the choice.

A more experienced will tell you that the is great for in-town cruising or use because it features a six-speed which shifts smoothly and the rider to extract the best out of twin cylinder engine. I did that and I have to say that you get used to it, transformation is the word my

Steering is very precise and completes the bike’s friendly I have tried to simulate usual mistakes but this has the tendency of establishing its cornering and if the rider doesn’t lean or it leans a bit too much, it is very to correct and rearrange during the

One of the systems that contribute to the friendly behavior is the suspension The telescopic front fork and rear suspension feature adjustable preload and provide comfort while efficiently from point A to point B or down the highway in top gear.

The could have got a little in what concerns the front and braking systems because, efficient, they seem a week, especially at the back.

the Suzuki GS500F is a great, package offering performance and in a cheap mean of personal It is exactly what a beginning would want from it and that an experienced one would


Beginner bikes to be cheap in order to sell and now the GS500F made no exception as a model year featured the retail price of $5,499, like the competition. Suzuki it as the first solution to your needs and motorcycling passion, so we a 2010 model won’t get $6K.


Setting a balance between racing day-long comfort and performance to it up, the 2010 Suzuki GS500F is, the second best decisions someone who wishes to start can do. The first best decision be to buy protective gear.
