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By 1937, manufacturing cotton looms had been replaced by building small cars before the Japanese government threw the stoppers on the production of civilian cars because they were a non-essential commodity during the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 VANVAN 125

Never loved a bike... being a 5"3 young woman, travelling 62 miles a day for college, and travelling 300 miles for family, this bike is wonderful for trips long a short. Never loved a bike more. Comfortable, low seat, I have issue bending my leg for the break but hey my leg is an odd shape my 5" mother gets along with it well. It was a very pricy first bike, I do admit, coming in at £1300 off a family member who significantly marked it down, worth every penny. Comfortable, easy ride, easiest ride of any bike I've ridden before, runs beautifully no matter what I put it through.

My father wanted me to mention it's also one of his favourite bikes, this is a 6" man, heavier set, and loves it just like his big beemer. He has done tip to tow of the country on his big bikes, but he would be very happy doing it on this little 125, even if it only goes unto 67 mph (at a push). Lovely for cities (even if it's a little long) and with my friends and my college in the country side, it's managed well everywhere.

Only reason I'm changing this year is I've moved onto a tiny island and can't get the most out of my poor baby, so I'm going onto a smaller, cheap and rubbish bike. Nothing can compare to the van van, every family member has loved it, 3 of us own one.

Suzuki GLADIUS ABS
Fantastic value for money. The engine has plenty of torque, so although it's only a 650, your not up and down the box all the time and engine breaking is good. The seat... Fantastic value for money. The engine has plenty of torque, so although it's only a 650, your not up and down the box all the time and engine breaking is good. The seat height is quite low which suits me and the bike is a pleasure to ride. Although, the seat can be somewhat uncomfortable after a 100 miles...... I have added a screen and Givi rack which make life easier. Overall, I am very please with the bike.
