Suzuki GS500E

Advantages: looks good + nice performace + handling

Disadvantages: easily, turning circle great

I bought a brand new in early January 2004 it’s actually the K2 model the very new one). It chose the one (I think the black doesn’t very nice). The blue is beautiful with the silver of the frame and rear end. I think the very new ones look quite as good.

The frame doesn’t look as and the new blue is not as deep and glossy as the blue. As well as this is only the Susuki S on the tank of the full Suzuki name (We all to proudly have the full of the bike’s manufactere on view we. ).

The engine is very sweet. It has of power and accelerates amazingly (and this is whilst it at or below 4000 rpm whilst it in). I think top end would be only around 110 mph, but it up to three quarters of it’s top in just a few seconds.

You would virtually any car easily. It has a fairly exhaust but what you can hear is a deep-ish sound as you should from a twin. Remember, as a with 2 cylinders, it’s are the same size as a 4-cylinder bike. (Your R1’s/Fireblades

Obviously there is no comparison for but I think the large cylinder does have it’s — The bike seems to loads of torque from as as 3000 rpm (I test rode a SV650 (a V-Twin — to be mega-torquey) and I swear this GS has got torque. The SV seemed to bog down at rpm whereas the GS pulls away stink!

It seems a little heavy manouvering it into the garage etc the Kawasaki ER5 and Honda CBF500 and are all heavier), but once moving the GS is an pleasure to ride. It’s flickable and steers easily. It is stable and never throws any at you. (I also have a ANF125 Innova an

d by comparison, is very unstable/wobbly)

The gearbox isn’t too bad at all (sometimes good), but it hasn’t run-in yet. It is still a better than my last bike was a brand new Honda CB250 Honda notchy box). are renowned for smooth and slick so I’ll wait and see.

The position is OK although I’ve put bar risers on to lift the handlebars up and them back slightly so now the position is even better! still not as comfy as a Suzuki or Honda CBF600)

I know classed as a commuter and everyone them as a commuter, but I don’t I could use it for commuting unless my was long fast-ish roads. I use mine on sunny days(!) using the Honda ANF in any weather. I if you’re looking at buying one for in bad traffic (jams/traffic lights/narrow then I would still say a little scooter/125 is the best.

They are easier to ride in traffic situations, no clutch, gears to bother with and tighter turning circles/steering for through jams etc and they are The steering and weight issue is that is noticed when in traffic.

Overall the GS500 is a top that is a good-looker (definately than the competition), amazing (especially if you’re new to biking) and a overall bike. I would say they are a very underated I know that they a reputation for corroding so look them well (all you is WD40 and a rag!).

Mine has never seen and is only 4 months old and I’ve seen a bit of surface rust on the side of the bike!

Of course, my at the GS500’s performace/gearbox/handling/looks etc are because the new shape model (fatter and fatter/different shaped rear end and + higher handler bars the clip-on ones)) an

d it’s new. If you go out and by a second hand that’s a bit rough and/or is the model shape, it may not feel as I described. They are fairly brand new, so I would getting as new a model as poss the newer shape one. I used to own the older shape one and it was — got rid of it after 3 months of the riding position!)

If you want one for some fun/longer then definately go for it. If you are new and want to through traffic, get a 125.
