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By 1937, manufacturing cotton looms had been replaced by building small cars before the Japanese government threw the stoppers on the production of civilian cars because they were a non-essential commodity during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

Suzuki GSX-R 750
Perfect balance between the handling & weight of a 600 and power of a 1000 (short of spending twice as much on a new generation litre bike).

Brilliant...
Perfect balance between the handling & weight of a 600 and power of a 1000 (short of spending twice as much on a new generation litre bike).

Brilliant engine and handling. Happy in town, on A roads or motorways where the extra power over a 600 is useful and never seems lacking except when compared to newer litre bikes.

No traction control or other fancy tech, not even AND but the Brembo brakes work well.

Very reliable and carries on for thousands of miles in all conditions - however the paint finish on the metal tank is thinner than my previous Hondas and Yamahas.

Only real complaint is the lack of comfort for long rides but this is a sportsbike issue not the bike's fault and is better than most supersports.
