Tax & Tested £1800-£2400 Minter £2500-£3000 Time is a healer, especially when it comes to Suzuki’s TL1000S. Once maligned and shunned for its brutal reputation, this storming V-twin is now actively sought out for those very attributes.
And rightly so. A well maintained and properly set-up TL (correct chain tension, good tyres and a skilled throttle hand) will tickle your adrenal gland in a way few other ’90s bikes can. And those looks – especially in red – are as imposing as they were two decades ago.
The TL-S (it has to be an early bike with the original hair-trigger ECU) is a true classic, lauded for the very same characteristics that made the 750 H2 famous.
