1978 - 1980 Suzuki GS 1000E
The Suzuki GS 1000E was based around the successful GS 750, which was the lightest of the 750's available at the time. What Suzuki wanted was a simple design, that benefited from solid engineering and light weight. And they succeeded. The GS 1000E was only slightly heavier than its smaller brother, which was quite an achievement. By lengthening the stroke of the (relatively short stroke) GS 750 engine from 56,4 to 70 mm the cylinder displacement was enlarged from 748 to 997 cc.
