Why Choose a Suzuki Motorbike?

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By 1937, manufacturing cotton looms had been replaced by building small cars before the Japanese government threw the stoppers on the production of civilian cars because they were a non-essential commodity during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

Good cost effective alternative to the FJR1300 or VFR1200, but unlike the old bandit 1200 the liquid cooling has added too much weight, its a leviathan and if parked the wrong way on a hill two people required to pull it back up! The engine is a peach pulls hard and linear in any gear from low revs & a pillion makes little difference to the performance. Unfortunately the pillion leg room is a little tight for such big heavy "sporty" good looking bike. Traded in for a CBF1000FA almost the same performance, lighter, comfy, more pillion room, bigger service intervals and definitely more nimble in town, with a tall screen fitted to the adjustable mounts, it suits me far far better than the GSX 1250.... much more of an allrounder.

Suzuki GSF 1250SA K8 GRAND TOURING
Excellent all round machine and an absolute bargain! Is just as happy fully loaded when touring as it is with all the panniers off and scratching on the twisty bits.
