$1,500 Off Australian Suzuki GS500 and GS500F
First introduced back in 1989, the GS500 and later (2004) its fully-faired GS500F version have been some of the best-selling street machines in Suzuki's range. With multiple awards won along the long history, this line-up provided daily commuting and sport-touring fun for many generations.
These two bikes are powered by a 487cc parallel-twin engine and are also learner-approved. This means that if you're new to the 2-wheeled world and are looking for your first motorcycle, going for one of these is both a legal and smart choice.
The GS500 retails in Australia in Grey for 5,990 AUD ($6,310 or €4,754 after rebate), while the faired version sets you back 6,490 AUD ($6,840 or €5,150 after rebate).
