I was pretty sure of that was more after its country of origin i.e. was it a Japan bike
no, the 1100 was never sold as a japan market bike.
the story I read many years ago was all bike over 750cc sold in japan had to be imports, so Suzuki exported the 1100's to another country, past them through customs and imported them back in to japan.
does you bike have a compliance plate riveted to the steering head in the frame, this may give a clue to the country it was intended for, look for little clues like the sticker under the seat are they in French or Spanish?
