Lot 150
1980 Suzuki GS1100


Selling on Friday


The 1100's inaugural year was 1980. Suzuki was now going lock step with other Japanese motorcycle manufacturers in showing that “size matters". As a street bike, an 1100 would always be popular in the states. A new niche was developing for drag bikes. Here Suzuki was able to shine with their advanced A-frame design. The DOHC set up facilitated breathing with its four valves per head. Suzuki called this twin swirl combustion chamber or TSCC. It was, in essence, a copy of a Cosworth design. Honda had both the CBX and the 1100F in this league, while Kawasaki had its GPZ series. None could match the GS1100. This unit shows 2,600 miles.
