Well that was the idea of Suzuki. To offer one a good beginners or anyones 500cc vertical twin. Next the owner might upgrade to the SV-650 or 650s & on to other models OR some might be quite content with the 500.

Sensible thinking upon their part & the pity is the to largest m/c makers being Honda & Yamaha did not think of it.

Hopefully the other will have something available in 2005... I'm not buying until next season so that works for me.

I think they look good

I saw a GS500F in person for the first time yesterday. I was going to check out the Ninja 250 and 500. I forgot that they also sold Suzukis there and didn't even think about looking at the GS500F until the salesman asked if I had ever checked one out. I thought it looked very nice in person.

The tail section is set up a lot like my F4... I just don't like how it weighs 20 pounds more than mine though. Definitely a cool idea for someone who wants the look but can't afford it.
