First introduced in 1966 this slim and elegant single cylinder two stroke developed a healthy 9.3hp @ 7500rpm with the help of a disc valve induction system and was universally popular as a commuter model. Its sporty styling with slim mudguards ad attractive candy colour schemes, available on later models, ensured its ongoing sales success.
The very crisp two stroke delivered strong acceleration and a top speed of 65mph-75mph making this 83kg lightweight ideal for city and out of town commutes. This was one of the finest machines of its type at that time and ran on with styling changes until the late 1970’s. Strong classic residuals, as with just about every early Suzuki make them desirable at a affordable price.
Its not perfect but is in very nice original, unrestored condition. What is known as a “survivor”.
Has a new carb, battery, tires and tubes and runs very well and has about 14,000 km. Presently has a Vintage plate in BC – $58.00/ yr insurance.
The only issues are a weak sounding horn, and the signal lights work but flasher is shot. Bike is in the lower Fraser Valley but can deliver to Vancouver Island.
