The Suzuki XN85, released in early 1983, was a turbocharged motorcycle. It was designed as a sportbike. The name came from the fact that it produced 85 hp. It featured the first factory 16-inch front wheel, which was previously seen only on race bikes. It also had low clip-on handlebars, rearset foot pegs and a single shock rear suspension, called the Suzuki Full Floater.

The engine was rather tame, with boost kicking in around the 5,000 rpm mark. It pulled strongly from that point but did not match the performance of larger sportbikes. While the XN did not have the power of other sportbikes, it had extremely good handling. In tight corners the headers would scrape.

The XN85 was replaced a few months later by the Suzuki lighter and cheaper GS750ES.
