Retrospective: Suzuki GSX1100G: 1991-1993

1991 Suzuki GSX1100G-02258

It was big at 1,100cc, good for 130-plus mph, and comfortable. You could spend all day on this bike, easily racking up a few hundred miles. And it was cheap—or at least relatively so at $6,000 in 1991 dollars. But who was the intended buyer for this Gixx-Gee? Not the sport rider, who would opt for the GSX-R1100 gixxer. Nor ...

Retrospective: Suzuki GS750E/ES: 1983

1-LEFT

The alphanumeric system that defines many Japanese motorcycles has never been very instructive, and the bike we are writing about here was only a one-year model…but it was a good one. Suzuki was the last of the Big Four to get into the four-stroke game. Seeing the EPA’s handwriting on the engineering wall, the Hamamatsu-based company came out with its ...

2web-LEAD-WING8255

My favorite comfort foods, heart-warming and artery-clogging classics like mac-and-cheese, buttermilk biscuits and pulled-pork barbecue, are straightforward and uncomplicated, each prepared with a short list of ingredients and easy techniques.

Suzuki gave its cruisers menacing names like Intruder, Marauder and Savage, as well as Volusia—named for the Florida county that encompasses Daytona Beach (the first Volusia was unveiled at Bike Week in 2001). For 2005, Suzuki ...

(Blacked Out Suzuki Special) cuts a figure worthy of favorable commentary, or so was my experience after spending a month with this machine. But a spiffy black suit isn’t enough for most riders, so the B.O.S.S. backs up its ...
