Since the 1950’s, this manufacturer has strived to advance motorcycling. In 1952, it marketed the "Power Free" motorized bicycle, before bringing out the Diamond Free 60cc, 2-cycle motorized bicycle just the following year. The last year of the decade saw it introduce the Colleda Sel Twin - a 125cc, two-stroke motorcycle including electric starter.

In the 1960’s, the T20 became the world’s fastest bike – and, in the decades that followed, Suzuki’s focus on power output and aerodynamics ensured that they continued to produce some of the fastest machines in motorcycling history. From the Suzuki Burgman through to the Suzuki Intruder, We Want Your Motorbike today!
The 1970’s saw Suzuki make breakthroughs in the sport of motocross. The company’s production motocrosser, the TM400, was first used in 500cc class Motocross World Championship racing during this period, while Roger De Coster won the championship with his 396cc RN71 factory bike.
During the 1980’s, the GSX-R1100 had a top speed of 265km/h and was the fastest stock bike in the world, while the RG500 was dominating the World Grand Prix Championship circuits. Subsequently, the RG250 became the first full, race replica bike to go into mass production.
In the 1990’s, the GSX-R600 became the lightest, most compact, most easily-handled yet hardest-accelerating bike of its class. Meanwhile, the Hayabusa line, the last production bike to take the title of the world’s fastest before manufacturers agreed to limit speed, became one of Suzuki’s all-time best-sellers.
Suzuki has obviously spent much of the 2010s thinking very much about its history. In 2012, it introduced a commemorative version of the GSX-R1000 to celebrate making a million GSX-R series motorcycles since 1985. Then, the following year, it launched the 50th anniversary Special Edition GSX-R1000, marking half a century since the brand’s debut in the US motorcycle market.
Add to this the brand’s mix of off-road, quad, and technologically advanced concept bikes, and you can only sit awestruck and wonder what Suzuki will have us straddling next. Suzuki is, of course, one of the world’s leading automakers; however, helped along by its success in motorsports, it has become especially strongly associated with its motorcycles, meaning that even old models remain in high demand.
