The Suzuki GN 400L from 1980 to 1982 belonged to the then modern category of Softchopper. In the case of the GN 400L, this is expressed above all in a wide and comfortable seat bench and the raised handlebars for an emphatically upright sitting position. The drop-shaped tank is also reminiscent of Chopper, otherwise, the Suzuki GN 400L is simply motorcycle.
