Suzuki has a formidable reputation for building exceptionally reliable middleweight workhorses. From the late 1980s, the GS/GSX tag has also been synonymous with value for money – an ideal format to gain a decent, honest stepping stone to larger capacites, or as simple honest to good bike that delivers everything expected of a bike to net enjoyable motorcycling. The ‘650F’ designation denotes the GSF650 carries a half-fairing, which has to be said is pretty good at giving Mr or Mrs Average an easy time at speed. Taller riders will need to check the aftermarket screen brochures. From 2007, the model had a serious update that included major revisions to the frame and swingarm. For these reasons the 650F is also adept at the sportier side of road riding, but not in the same sense as a GSX-R supersport replica, but good enough to put a smile on your face. That engine isn’t all about revs. Suzuki has a knack of delivering non-sport models with usable torque delivery to make riding life a very easy one for the rider. Comfort for pillion and rider is spot on for a day’s riding and the addition of ABS is a great safety aid.
