Suzuki is member of the “Big Four” from Japan

It began manufacturing motorcycles in 1952 and has become well known around the world. Its off-road bikes and roadracers have won world titles, and its street machines range from the cruiser Boulevard series to the legendary GSX-R series of sportbikes. It, along with Honda, is unique in that the company also builds automobiles.

Suzuki Sports Bikes are headlined by the mighty Hayabusa hypersport. The popular GSX-R1000 superbike and GSX-R600 are complemented by the GSX-R750. The GSX650F is Suzuki’s entry-level sportbike. Suzuki sportbikes are the Japanese marque’s signature models. The large-displacement Hayabusa defined the hypersportbike class.

Meanwhile, the GSX-R1000 superbike and GSX-R600 supersport are Suzuki’s road-racing platforms – the Gixxers enjoying great success, including utter domination of the AMA Superbike series with Mat Mladin and Ben Spies. The Gixxer lineup is supplemented by the middle-weight GSX-R750, the only 750 four-cylinder superbike still in production.

Suzuki’s combined experience in both the auto industry as well as the motorcycle industry

It allowed them to produce the world’s first four-wheeled ATV, the QuadRunner 125 which would be a precursor to its popular line of sport ATVs including the QuadSport Z250, QuadSport Z400 and QuadRacer R450. Suzuki also makes a versatile line of KingQuad utility ATVs with its top-of-the-line KingQuad 750AXi 4×4 Power Steering.

Today, Suzuki continues to innovate with models such as its futuristic B-King and its Hayabusa 1300, which essentially started the hypersports bike revolution in 1999.

Other exciting models include the to-be-released Gladius and GSR 600. Yet Suzuki continues to produce classics like the Bandit 1250 and the versatile DR650SE dual-sport bike. Additionally, Suzuki produces a wide range of cruisers including the Maurader and Boulevard models.
