Suzuki is a Japanese manufacturer of both automobiles and motorcycles. Suzuki motorcycles are known to be among the most reliable in the industry. The company started its cycle history by producing motorized bicycles in 1952. In those early years and until the 1970s, Suzuki made only cycles with two-stroke engines. The largest two-stroke cycle they made was the GT750. Soon after they began making four-stroke engines in order to compete with the broader cycle market. The GS400 and GS750 were released in 1976 and were the first new cycles Suzuki made since the Coleda COX of the 1950s.
In the 1960s, the company developed three crucial technologies that transformed the industry. These were the boost port, the extension chamber, and the rotary valve. Suzuki now produces the third largest domestic motorcycle sales in Japan. Suzuki motorcycles are especially well-known in the racing world. They've had a total of 93 wins at the prestigious Isle of Man TT Races.
