Suzuki GS500

  1. Looking at getting one of these when i get my learners.

    is there any difference between the GS500 and GS500E.. i have been looking at them and googling but i haven't been able to find anything. i know they've both not got fairings. that's all i could find out. lol

  2. They're basically the same thing as I understand it. I think from memory the GS500E is just the European model name for the GS500, maybe a couple differences in terms of emissions gear or something, but irrelevant as we don't get the E in Australia.
  3. I think you will find the E designation was used in the 90s model bikes. www.gstwins.com is a good site for information.
  4. If you are in NSW and close enough to Newcastle ive got a cheap example in the 'for sale' section ;)
