The success of Honda's four-cylinder CB750 made it inevitable that the other major Japanese manufacturers would follow suit, Suzuki's offering - the GS750 - arriving in 1976. Within a short time there was also a 1,000cc version - the GS1000. The latter arrived in the UK for the 1978 season, vying with Kawasaki's Z1000 for the 'top sports bike' crown, and was soon followed by the first of the shaft-driven, G-series sports-tourers: the GS850G. Suzuki's first shaft-driven motorcycle, the refined GS850G was much liked by motorcycling press and public alike, being capable of attaining a top speed of 115mph while averaging around 40 miles to the gallon when ridden less enthusiastically. This tidy example was acquired by the current vendor in 2003 and treated to minor cosmetic refurbishment, since when it has been on showroom display. Offered with NL registration document, and displaying a total of 42,000 kilometres on the odometer.
