A Recipe For Added Excitement

The GS500F is the benchmark for reliability, economy and versatility.

The GS500F is equipped with disc brakes and preload-adjustable rear suspension, while a 20-litre fuel tank delivers an excellent fuel range.

A relaxed riding position, comfortably-positioned handlebars and a well-padded, low seat ensure rider comfort on the ever popular GS500F.

With a fresh new face, the GS500F opens up new roads. The racing inspired full fairing and vertical headlight design make it a head turner.

Powered by a lightweight and reliable, 487cc parallel-twin engine, both models are eligible for the Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS), governing motorcycle usage by learner riders in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, A.C.T., Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
