1986 Suzuki GSX400X Impulse
Frame no. GK71102635
Engine no. K706-10576
Suzuki's first multi-cylinder four-stroke - the GS750 - arrived in 1976 and within a few years there were GS models of varying engine capacities. The next phase of development saw the range updated to four-valves-per-cylinder 'GSX' specification in 1980. Moving further away from its two-stoke origins, Suzuki abandoned the GS's built-up roller-bearing crankshaft in favour of a more conventional forged item with plain bearings. One of the smaller members of the family, the quirkily styled GSX400X Impulse was never officially imported into the UK and is a relatively rare sight in this country. We are advised that this example is undamaged, completely original and free of modifications. Other than small paintwork blemishes and some rust to the exhaust, it is said to be in excellent condition and currently displays a total of only 48,934 kilometres (approximately 30,300 miles) on the odometer. The machine comes with copies of Dutch registration papers and is offered without reserve.
