I've been reading up on the Suzuki GS500F which they started building in 2004. The F stands for faring. They built the GS500E for about 20 years. Both bikes have the same motor. Top speed is between 95 and 100 MPH. The maximum total load is about 800 pounds so it would carry a fair amount of gear and you could cruise 75 to 80 MPH all day on it. It wouldn't be bad riding two up either. MPG is between 55 and 60. Do any of you have any thoughts on this bike? Have any of you owned one? If Honda doesn't come out with the CBR400R this bike will be near the top of my list. Because it is under 600cc or 650cc insurance is about 1/3 what the larger bike would be. Thanks for your help.
