Suzuki GS1100G

Suzuki had shown itself the absolute leader in terms of top-of-the-range sports machines with its GSX-R 750 and 1100. In 1991 it launched the GSX1100G, a more mature motorcycle without a fairing. With this "basic" version, Suzuki was merely following the trend towards simpler, more usable bikes which were more easily affordable.

The Same Starting Point

Though they didn't have a single component in common, it was difficult at first glance to tell the 1991 GSX-G and the 1982 GS1100E apart, for they had the same starting point and followed the same general style. The GS1100E of 1982 was derived from the most futuristic super sport of its day, the 1100 Katana , though with less aggressive styling. It also used the Katana's 111hp engine,which gave the GSX-G Grand Tourer a top speed of over 110 mph, which was scarcely practical with out a fairing .

Progress Makes the Difference

If they were visually similar, the G and the E were differentiated by technical progress: the all-new 1992 motor, with its delicate cooling fins, employed both air-and oil-cooling and, while its power output has been limited to 100 hp, its torque is greater. The weight has gone up from 522 lb in 1981 to 575 lb now, but the biggest change is the adoption of a single-arm rear suspension
