The 2012 Suzuki GS500 won’t impress you with its dated design, but it will sure manage to get your attention with its sporty performances.
Power comes from a 4-stroke, 2-cylinder, air-cooled, DOHC engine with a displacement of 487 cm3. The engine’s power is sent to the rear wheel through a six speed constant mesh transmission which is pretty sharp and precise. On top of that, the transistorized electronic ignition and precise carburetor also help in keeping the engine to run as smoothly and as efficiently as possible.
While the design may not be as charming as other models in its class, you won’t have any complains about the bike’s functionality. The well-padded seat and the comfortable riding position certainly add a plus of value. Not to mention about the comprehensive instrument cluster, frame-mounted one-piece grab bar, black-painted double-cradle frame and the upswept tail section.
