Review of "Suzuki GS500E"
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 is a good choice however it is for me a good looking machine. I know what I required when I looked in on my new company bike. Hence, I am reviewing the Suzuki GS500E.
The seat is a black with silver inserts with the flexibility of extra features that the machine itself does have a kick starter. It's also got locking fuel tank, alloy wheels, helmet lock, indicators, rear seat foot pegs. This is very useful you have added passenger getting free travel. It can be crunch but it is a good and must be good for two people can go to work on it in all.
About the price it is not anything to be concerned about second hand, I got it from a company as a company bike it was on special offer it is something very much dependent on different retailers but it was bought for £2500. That is the price for a new one is it is not possible to pay very much more than £3000.
It's has a very simple to use. That's a good point compared to some. It is easy to drive as it is light easy gear change and plenty of for around town power mean it is a very easy machine to use. It has a 4 stroke engine oil which is toped up with a small opening on the enging. It does not use much petrol at 60mpg it is good it will easily do 100mph. The motor is not even trying at 70 mph due to government laws. Unrestricted it is more powerful at a claimed 51hp @ 9000 revolutions per minute when flat out. It is also available restricted at 32hp but this is for learners only.
~Ease of Use~
Another point is the easefullness of starting the electric motor is inside the engine and works first time every time. The seat is small but comfortable for most people.
It's made to be highly durable and I have tested this many times while dropping it. While others have worn the metal discs to within fine limit the brakes are sharp and good around town. Nothing much happened that is it is nothing re-markable.
As it can have a restricted motor it is not for motorways or long distance riding if it does! Small and light is ok if you are small and light other wise it will be uncomfortable
