How to find out the model year of my Suzuki?

It is quite easy if your bike is made for the American market and it's from the eighties or newer. You only need to find the identification plate with the VIN number somewhere on the frame of your bike. The tenth (10th) digit in the vehicles VIN code tells the model year of your bike, using the the following year codes:

VIN (Vehicle Data Card)


Suzuki Serial Number Lookup

Established in 1954, American automobile manufacturers use a vehicle identification number, or VIN, to describe and identify motor vehicles. Beginning with the 1981 model year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the USA required that all over-the-road-vehicles sold must contain a 17-character VIN. This standard established a fixed VIN format. Often found on the steering head portion of the frame, the VIN encodes the vehicle's year, make, model, body and engine style and unique serial number. Each motorcycle Owner and Service Manual lists the location of the VIN and engine number.
In the early nineties, Suzuki instituted a frame program where street model replacement frames would receive an identification label which used a portion of the original VIN number. So if you have a late model Suzuki street motorcycle, even if it has received a replacement frame, it will have a VIN number or identification label on the steering head portion of the frame.
The VIN is a record of manufacture and can tell us in the first three digits the country of origin, the manufacturer and the vehicle type. For example: J (Japan) Y (Yamaha) and A (motorcycle). The next four or five digits denote the manufacturer’s model and series code for a particular machine i.e., SC282 (pre 1995 Honda Fireblade) or GM51A (Suzuki GS500E).

Some manufacturers use an eighth digit to identify the model series or engine. The ninth digit is a check digit and allows the manufacturer or authorities to see if the VIN is genuine or not (it would be unwise to give examples). The tenth digit denotes the year of manufacture.
A manufacturer’s assembly plant is identified by the eleventh number and the remaining digits are known as the sequential number. Useful, you might think, but unfortunately unlike most four-wheel vehicles, there is no legal requirement in most of the European countries (yet) for motorcycles to have a VIN, although it is used since 1977 as an International standard (ISO 3779).
Here's an example, a GSX-R1100 made for North American market.

The N between the X and the 2 tells the bike is a 1992-year's model.

Here's an example of how a VIN plate can look like. A Suzuki GSX-R1100 from 1992. The digit N reveals the model year.

Here's an example of an identification plate from an European '90 GSX-R750. As you can see, there is no VIN number but the type code tells you things about the bike.


VDS (Vehicle Descriptor Section)
In countries that haven't adopted the use of VIN codes (most of the European countries) the VDS code that also can be found in the VIN code tells you the type (model code) of the bike. Suzuki uses a five digit (letters and numbers) that have the following meaning:
Vehicle category
Piston displacement
Engine type
Design sequence
Model variation
C
Scooter
B
Business model, commuter
N
Single cylinder sport street
G
Multiple cylinder sport street
F
Family
S
Off-road
V
V-type engine, street (V2, V4)
HSquare Four

Note: I haven't found an official explanation for the digit H, but as far as I know it is only used for the80's GP racers, the RG400 and the RG500 Gamma models.

This digit tells the model version. The first version uses 1, the second 2 and so on.
Letters A, B, C... are used after the 9 is used.
Generally an A is used for the base model with non-restricted (full) power output.
Different letters can be used for new or special editions of the same model.

The same codes are used in the VDS code.
Unlike type, the sequence number for engine uses a two-digit number starting with 01. Because of the late introduction of this code system, the engines used on several Suzuki models don't use this system. For example, the engine code of the GSX750S is the same as its frame type, GS75X.
Regarding R7** class, the GS750 is thought as the first version of the engine type, but it is not confirmed by Suzuki if they count it as 01.
