Suzuki TL1000S

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - News -

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.

Buy one now be­fore they get priced out of reach.
