Why choose Suzuki?

Suzuki is one of the biggest names in motorcycle manufacturing and one of a host of enormous Japanese brands on the market.

But that’s not always been the case.

Where it all began for Suzuki

Michio Suzuki was the son of a cotton farmer and in 1909, he started out in business manufacturing looms.

By 1937, manufacturing cotton looms had been replaced by building small cars before the Japanese government threw the stoppers on the production of civilian cars because they were a non-essential commodity during the second world war.

The move to two-wheels

In 1952 Suzuki began developing clip-on engines for bicycles, a process that soon led to the production of small capacity motorbikes, 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 the Suzuki Motor Company and 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 famous model

The manufacturer is best known for its GSX-R series of bikes but no matter what Suzuki you own, you’ll be able to compare insurance quotes with The Bike Insurer.

Suzuki GSX 650F
Very pleased with the bike it handles well and the engine is very good, it will pull along well in any gear, and is pretty nimble, even though it's a heavy.

Suzuki VANVAN 125
Great little bike, really suits taller riders. Handles great in traffic and has the feel and comfort of a much bigger bike. Lacks a little in power compared to other... Great little bike, really suits taller riders. Handles great in traffic and has the feel and comfort of a much bigger bike. Lacks a little in power compared to other 125's. Attracts loads of attention from other riders even some on bigger machines love the look of it. Other Van Van riders are great too, pretty much always get a thumbs up or a nod even in central London rush hour. It's easy to work on and parts are cheap which helps to keep costs down. Great bike couldn't recommend enough.
