Identification help needed

I hope there is nothing wrong with me posting this here. I'm hoping someone here can offer me some help.

Our department recently recovered a Sport bike that is most likely stolen. The bike has been painted over and it looks like a grinder was taken to any place on the frame that had any type of label or stamped identifying information.

The gas tank and motor are both marked as Suzuki, but I would like to be able to identify a specific model and year range if I can to verify where the VIN information should be so I can attempt recovery of that information.

The bike was wrecked during the pursuit, so the front fairing is not in place and it looks to me like a lot of other trim is missing. I'm including photos to see if maybe someone can help identify what this is.

Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Looks early 90s to me, but I've never been good at that kind of recognition. The front-end shot is a good way to get a lead, though. Try posting at some of our sister sites, like kawiforums or 600rr.
