Don't mock the GS500 Review with images

Advantages Great commuter - and OK for short people

Disadvantages Some vibration and not trememdously fast if you doing a track day!

"...I took it on a Suzuki GS500 and therefore I felt comfortable on it so decided this was what I would buy for myself. The GS500 is a twin cylinder, four stroke, air-cooled machine, 487 cc, with disc brakes front and rear, and of very simple design. No fancy computerised bits, no fuel warning lights, just the rev counter and speedo and basic bits and pieces. However it does have electronic ignition which is a bonus for those of us who have bruised ..." Read review

Owners review of the much loved Suzuki GS500e

AdvantagesReliable, cheap, does exactly what it says on the tin! and has masses of fun!

Disadvantagesuncomfortable long distance touring for taller people!

"This bike has been my angel on wheels over the past 10-11 months! it really is as good as people say, and more!!! i have had numerous people say to me that they are bullet proof, will do in excess of 60-80k miles, and mine hasnt once let me down! considering mine is a 95 N reg GS500e, it is in excellent condition, and for around £1000 you get a whole lot of reliability and masses of fun!!! it corners like a dream! left knee down to right knee down ..."

I'm back

AdvantagesCheap (second hand) - few vices

DisadvantagesUnsophisticated

"...plant. About the only innovation which Suzuki implemented on the bike was to use a rear-mono shock swing arm, mounted in an 'A' frame - this is now the absolute standard construction design for practically any motorcycle built in the past ten years. The wheels are three spoke alloys, with disks front and back, there is a chain drive, and beyond that, everything is very much as you would expect. The machine was built very much with final selling ..." Read review

Marred by rust

AdvantagesCheap. Econonical. Easy to maintain.

DisadvantagesUncomfortable with distance. Rusts easy. Underpowered.

"I owned a Suzuki GS500E for two years before trading it in for a Triumph Sprint 900. The GS500E handle fairly well once the suspension is set up for your weight but can feel a bit slack at it's rear end. I'd bought the GS500E just after passing my test and realised soon after that I should have invested another £500 and bought the Suzuki Bandit 600 instead. The difference in price doesn't compare to the difference in handling and build quality ..." Read review

Big little bike

AdvantagesSmall and handy cheap

DisadvantagesNot very fast

"...was lucky to have a Suzuki GS500 E to use some years ago now. I know you must be wondering why that and not another. Anyway, I was glad to find that it was brand new and given to me to make deliveries by a company. The Suzuki GS500 E is an aircooled twin cylinder machine the most cheap of the 500 cc machines that Suzuki makes it has some interesting features and is not at the most fasionable end of the market for learner and commuter riders it ..."
