2002/08 Suzuki GSX1400
What we said then “The biggest and blingiest of the retros is stacked with low-down torque.” What happened next Sold in Japan since 2001, the GSX1400 arrived in Europe in 2002 after demand from potential customers. However as soon as it arrived those very same riders discovered that the GSX was a bit of a monster and its dry weight of 228kg made it overwhelming at low speed. After an initial rush in interest, sales were slow and it fizzled out in 2008. What’s happening now Riders looking for a big-engined retro for relaxed weekend rides are snapping up the GSX. The motor’s torque eats miles, the seat is comfortable and the aircooled engine looks the part. What to look out for The 2006 Final Edition came with a unique paintscheme and Yoshimura pipe. The spring pre-load adjusters on the twin shocks seize up, so check these and also inspect for warped discs and sticking brake caliper pistons.
