Cute and rider-friendly compact 50 cm³ scooter


The Ran (the Japanese word for “orchid”) is a cute and compact entry model scooter. Although it is unusual to use a Japanese word as the name of a motorcycle or scooter, the name “Ran” was chosen to appeal to women and beginner riders. Combining a 50 cm³ air-cooled 2-stroke engine that generates maximum horsepower of 3.6 PS with an automatic transmission, the Ran realizes an agile riding feel and low fuel consumption. Rideability was prioritized through features such as a spacious seat set at a low height. The Ran was designed with beginner riders in mind and incorporates mechanisms such as Suzuki’s own start system, in which the engine cannot be started without pulling the left brake lever.
