History of Suzuki

Blue and white motorbike

Much the same as Yamaha, Suzuki began life in 1909 from the seeds of a different business venture. Originally Suzuki was a company that produced weaving looms for the Japanese market. It wasn't until after the collapse of the cotton market in 1951 that Suzuki produced its own powered bicycle called 'Power free'.

'Power free' was fitted with a two-stroke 36cc engine, completely unique at the time as it featured a double-sprocket gear system that allowed the rider to either pedal with engine assistance, pedal without the engine or simply disconnect the pedals and just use the engine to do all the work.

Due to the ingenious design of the bike, the Japanese government gave Suzuki a subsidiary order to continue research into motorcycle and car innovation, allowing them to build better motorcycles.

The Suzuki GSX-R is often referred to as the most influential motorcycles of the 80s, known for power and reliability. You will still find this in their current motorcycle catalogue ranging from 600cc to 1000 cc.

Today, aside from the production of motorcycles, Suzuki also make cars, marine engines and wheel chairs and is Japan's second largest manufacturer of small cars and trucks.

Did you know?

The Suzuki Hayabusa was a sports motorcycle that won acclaim as the world’s fastest production motorcycle. The name means 'peregrine falcon' in Japanese, a bird that often serves as a metaphor for speed due to its vertical hunting dive.
