Suzuki GSX 1100 ES

Suzuki GSX 1100 ES

The styling is sporting, influenced by works endurance and F-1 machines, without going as far (too far, some would say) as the Katana. The GS1100ES has low handlebars, but they're mounted on the upper triple clamp, instead of being Katana-style, back-straining clip-ons. And the foot-pegs are normally positioned, not radically rear-set like the Katana's pegs.
