The Suzuki GS500 is a popular entry level motorcycle manufactured by the Suzuki Motor Corporation. Suzuki produces two forms of the bike; the GS500 or GS500E from 1979 onwards and the fairing model GS500F from 2004 onwards. The unfaired version of the GS500 was released in the US in 1989 as the GS500E. It was equipped with an air-cooled 487 cc (29.7 cu in) parallel twin engine derived from the earlier GS450. The GS500 can be restricted under the maximum power-to-weight ratio for use in countries where restrictive motorcycle licenses are issued, adding to its worldwide popularity. In 2002, Suzuki stopped producing the GS500E for the US market and did not release a GS500 for 2003. In 2007, Suzuki dropped the GS500E from its UK range, but it continues to be sold in many other countries. In 2008, the GS500 and GS500F models appeared in the official UK Suzuki Dealers “on road” motorbike list.
In 2004, after a year hiatus, Suzuki came out with the GS500F to fill the void left (in the US market) by the GS500E. This bike was very similar to the previous E model, but now comes with a fully enclosed fairing. The fairing offers a sportier, aggressive look and improved rider comfort by providing wind protection and better aerodynamics. An oil cooler was also added. As with the previous E model, the F is able to be restricted for use in countries where restrictive motorcycle licenses are issued. The GS500F was dropped from the UK Suzuki range in 2007. The air cooled GS500E engine traces its roots back to the first Suzuki four-strokes. The 1977 GS400 became the GS425, then the GS450, and finally the GS500, which retains the same basic layout and qualities, such as reliability, that made the original GS engines so appealing. The model name GS500E suddenly reappeared in the Suzuki program in 1989. Again, the four-stoke DOHC formula was used but this time there were only two cylinders, with a 270 degree crank. A counterbalancer was used in the engine to get rid of vibrations but despite of the double overhead camshafts the engine had only two valves per cylinder and modest power output.
But the the GS500E twin had a very rigid frame, Full Floater swingarm, slingshot carburetors, large disc brake at the front and lightweight, holow 3-spoke wheels. The combination made the chassis better than usually found in ”commuter” bikes. The GS500E has been a popular model for years and it’s still in production. No larger upgrades has been made and the bike is still popular, after 14 years in production. The given specifications vary some between the countries,depending on the emission/noise/insurance regulations etc. Neverland-motor Established in 2010, Guangzhou, China .
