The liquid-cooled GSX400FW (internal code GK71A) was launched in Japan in March 1983. Yoshimura tuned up the Engine: and built up the special Frame: to entry Japanese domestic TT-F3 race. 184 bikes found their way to Sweden in 1983, where it was sold under the model name GSX400FWS and had 52 hp in 1983. The Japanese version had 50 ps (49,5 hp).
The GSX400FW caused a small sensation when it was launched in 1983. 52 bhp from a 400cc four-stroke, combined with a sporty, almost racer-likechassis was a great new model from Suzuki. The liquid-cooled Engine: was slightly heavier than its predecessor but could be revved up to 11,500 rpm and deliver more power. The handling of the bike was considered a s very good, the disc brakes excellent (the rear brake was almost too good). It was a full-size bike and could be ridden with a passenger, but the huddled-up riding position and the need to use very high revs to get the most out of the Engine: could be annoying in a long run. The fuel economy was slightly worse than with other 400cc bikes but still quite good.
