GS1100GK 1982 (Z) USA (E03)


The very capable GS1000 was now down on performance compared to the Honda CBX and Yamaha XS11, and Suzuki’s sales dipped as a result. The lower standing quarter times and lower top speeds were more important than its fine handling, particularly in the North American market. So the GS1100 E was borne, and this time with a four valve cylinder head.

The model had more power throughout its rev range, and by 1982 made more than 108hp, restoring the 250kg Suzuki to king of the drag strip!
