The 238 kg of lightweight machine just had a 4-cylinder in-line engine with roller bearing crankshaft and two overhead, chain-driven camshafts. The mixture preparation was done in the early years using four single piston slide-type carburetor Mikuni VM22, later came diaphragm carburetor used. Was connected via a six-speed gearbox, the power is transferred to the rear wheel via a standard O-ring chain. The L had as its sister sport, the E and the Touring variant T cast aluminum wheels.

The chassis in rigid steel tube frame was designed good-natured and good on bends and was considered one of the best of his time. Was slowed by a double disk brake at the front and one wheel at the rear. The U.S. models (GS 550 L) were limited to a front disc and rear drum brake.

The early 4-cylinder Suzuki GS models, and specifically its variants with the DOHC engines (Motern with two overhead camshafts) are considered to be almost indestructible. One reason for this longevity is the use of a roller bearing crankshaft, which still always provides sufficient lubrication even at low pressures or oil level is low. Another reason is the fact that the Japanese engineers in the development of their first 4-stroke engine much emphasis placed on reliability and so much according to the aggregate material in the form of sufficient splurged aluminum.

The L models of the GS series enjoyed, especially in your big versions 750L, 850L and 850 GL (shaft drive), 1000L and 1100 L and GL and GL particularly in the U.S. market extraordinary popularity, which also explains its long construction period. The end of the GS series is the futuristic styled GSX1100 Katana – the father of all modern superbikes.
