In years prior, the GS series was designed to be an all-around standard. In 1982, Suzuki broke up the biggest GS with different models like the E and the G.

The G became a lazy man’s tourer, which freed the E from its constraints. It evolved into king of the dragstrip. The engine got some extra work, and cosmetics were slightly tweaked, leading to a bike more similar to the early Katana’s, and an engine that produced over 100 horsepower and nearly 70 foot-pounds of torque.

This example is VIN: JS1GU71A0B2102371.

The odometer shows 5,509 miles.

In preparation for the listing, the seller had us clean and sync the carbs, rebuild the front brake calipers, reinstall the rear brake line, flush the hydraulic fluids, and replace the spark plugs, the chain, the horn, the petcock, the fork seals and oil, as well as the oil and oil filter. We also gave the bike a detail and installed new Pirelli Sport Demon tires with date codes of 1022 and 2622.
