7 November 2014 
Metcher recently returned home after a few months stint in Europe, contesting the final two rounds of the FIM European Superstock 1000 championship and the BSB championship, and told that he was ecstatic to have signed a deal previous to the start of the 2015 season, as he can now focus solely on riding and training instead of stressing about contracts.

GSX1100SXZ 1982 Vin GS110X-100388 to GS110X-101324

GSX1100SZ 1982 Vin GS110X-522093 4stk 4cyl road (katana)
GSX1100SD 1983 Vin GS110X-535683 4stk 4cyl road (katana)
GSX1100SE 1984 Vin GS110X-541309 4stk 4cyl road (katana)

I have no idea if these numbers are Oz only or world wide but they suggest there was less than 1000 models produced. My SXZ was assembled July 31 1981 & shipped on August 8 1981 and first registered September 1981. ( assembly and shipping details supplied by the factory).
You need to keep in mind that anything produced after the 6th month is next years model but can still arrive and be registered sooner thus the 81 tag some bikes have but they are actually 82 models. The above info was supplied by two separate dealers who provided the same numbers, my bike is in the first 100 in the number range and I have never seen one past the 150 mark, so who knows how many actually arrived here. I have heard all sorts of numbers but none higher than 500. Someone else may be able to help with numbers.
