1982 Suzuki GS1100E in Red

In 1982 the GS1100E was liberated from its role of all-around motorcycle. Admittedly it was an awesome machine, and king of the dragstrip, but it was happy in many roles. With the introduction of the GS1100G, the 'E' model could really let loose and go for gold. The engine was improved upon and the styling changed to be reminiscent of the early-80's Katana's, combining speed with function and styling. In 1982 it produced108hp@8500rpm, with torque of 67.6@6500. It weighed 549 lbs wet.
