63 Miles – 1982 Suzuki GS1100E

In Japan, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

In the early 80s, Suzuki knocked off the CBX as the superbike du jour. The Suzuki GS1100E came into the market and instantly became the bike of choice for the power hungry. American press mags constantly raved about not just the power, but also the surprising handling abilities for such a large bike.

In years prior, the GS series was designed to be an all-around standard. In 1982, Suzuki broke up the biggest GS with different models like the E and the G. The G became a lazy man’s tourer, which freed the E from its constraints. It evolved into king of the dragstrip. The engine got some extra work, and cosmetics were slightly tweaked, leading to a bike more similar to the early Katana’s, and an engine that produced over 100 horsepower and nearly 70 foot-pounds of torque.

This example has just 63 miles (duh) and it’s almost entirely stock. Replacement parts include the front brake lines, fuel tank, and fuel cap – though the replacement parts are OEM. The original tank is still with the seller but it’s rusted. The bike starts but the carbs need to be rebuilt.
