The SV650 and the SV650S with a functional half-fairing were introduced in 1999. They won great popularity for the exhilarating feel of its acceleration and its stylish design especially in Europe. The SV650/S featured an innovative robust aluminum-alloy truss frame and the state-of-the-art liquid-cooled 90° V-Twin 2-cylinder DOHC 4-valve engine. Due to its rigid and lightweight chassis, the SV650/S offered superb handling.



The SKYWAVE/BURGMAN 400 was released in October 1998, 8 months later than its 250cc brother model. Liquid-cooled 385cc SOHC, 4-valve, single-cylinder engine, the largest displacement of any scooter engine at that time, generated 32ps at 7,500rpm. Stainless steel muffler, newly designed seat, rear suspension preload adjustment dial, etc. were added to differentiate itself from its 250cc version. It featured a large storage compartment under the seat enabling to hold 2 full-face helmets.

1997 GSX-R600


An integrated team of the engine and chassis worked together to make the new GSX-R the lightest, the most compact, the best handling and the hardest acceleration 600cc 4-cylinder production machine in the world. The GSX-R600 was a street-going racer replica with Grand Prix technology employed in the RG racing machines.

1997 TL1000S


The TL1000S was the first Suzuki sport bike with V-Twin engine. This was liquid-cooled 2-cylinder DOHC engine with 4 valves per cylinder. The integrated design was the fruit of the labors of an experienced team of engine, chassis, suspension and electronics specialists assembled by Suzuki's engineering department. Their combined efforts resulted in a rare engineering masterpiece that was functionally outstanding and emotionally appealing.

1996 GSX-R750


This is the turning-point model of the GSX-R750 with the newly equipped twin-spar frame instead of the double cradle frame. The engine was also completely redesigned employing 3-piece crankcases, chrome-plated cylinder and a side cam chain as well as Suzuki Ram Air Direct (SARD) system. Faithfully tracing the GP machine RGV-Γ, the basic dimensions with shortened wheelbase generated smooth drivability with a surprising dry weight of 179kg.

1995 Bandit 1200

Bandit 1200

The Bandit 1200 was renowned for its dynamic performance - despite being the lightest and most compact machine in its class. Retaining all the qualities of its little brother, the Bandit 600, it was a "Naked Bike" for those who wishing to come alive in the wind and experience the full measure of Suzuki performance. The 16-valve 1156cc air/oil-cooled engine, based on the proven GSX-R1100, mounted on a double-cradle frame.



The KINGQUAD was based on the popular and well-engineered versatility QuadRunner 4WD. Its powerful and versatile 280cc 4-stroke engine exhibited excellent low- and mid-range torque. The proven QuadRunner 4WD engine was enlarged to yield a greater power output, facilitating load-haulage and travel over rough terrain. The combination of larger engine, fully independent suspension and the innovative front differential lock lent the KINGQUAD great versatility.

1990 DR-BIG


With its displacement of 779cc, the air-cooled with SACS (Suzuki Advanced Cooling System), 4-stroke, SOHC, 4-valve engine boasted the world largest single cylinder at that time. Based on feedback acquired from the Paris-Dakar factory racer DR-Z, its production version dubbed "DR800S BIG" had Suzuki's latest technologies such as SACS and twin-balancer shafts. One-piece design of engine shroud, big fuel tank and front fender was distinctive for this big off-roader.
