A quick glance at the history of the Suzuki motorcycle company, of interest to those looking for competitive Suzuki motorbike insurance:
Son of a Japanese cotton farmer, Michio Suzuki, started out in business in 1909 manufacturing looms. In 1937 he began to build small cars, stopping during the Second World War when the Japanese government declared civilian cars a non-essential commodity.
In 1952 Suzuki began developing clip on engines for bicycles, a process that soon led to the production of small capacity Suzuki motorcycles, the first of which was the 90cc Colleda. By 1954, Suzuki was producing 6,000 motorcycles per month and had officially changed its name to Suzuki Motor Company.
By 1958, 50cc, 125cc and 250cc Suzuki bikes had been introduced along with the company’s famous S logo, which is still used on motorbikes to this day. Now established worldwide, Suzuki entered the big bike market in 1967 with the introduction of the GT500 – a bike that stayed in production until the 1970’s.
The late 70’s saw the launch of the Superbike and Suzuki’s GS1000S did not disappoint. And in 1982 Suzuki introduced the supercharged XN85, a bike that secured them their eighth consecutive win in the World Racing Championships 500cc class.
