Suzuki UK now have recognised their interesting bikes from the past by offering original parts for previous years model. This include the iconic 1988 Suzuki RGV250, GSX-R750 and many more. These vintage parts are available in the UK. This is an interesting move from Suzuki and I hope it can be followed by other manufacturers. Anyway, some of the riders in the UK are complaining about the price of the parts are a little bit on the high side.
For Malaysian riders, they might think that this is not related to them, but you should know that now, Suzuki UK are offering good website with lots of thing to download. You can now download RGV brochure, GSX-R1000 parts catalogue, GT750 poster and many more from there.

A legendary bike based on the outgoing TZR 250 that can churns out 36PS at 10,500RPM. This is powerful due the engine that is 2-stroker. It is liquid-cooled with 59.0mm x 54.0mm bore and stroke setup, that make that this engine is oversquare so that it can revs higher. The carburetor is 30mm from Mikuni 30SS for the engine to burn the fuel with 6.0:1 compression ratio. Enough to propel this bike up to 208km/h.

Also equipped is the controversial YPVS mechanical electric valve control that can makes this engine delivers power more linear so that it is easier to control the bike’s output. Controversial because this valve needs to be change frequently and adds up to its maintenance cost. Read the rest of this entry »

Suzuki revealed this beauty at the 43rd Tokyo Motorshow and makes us drooling for it. The concept named Recursion, comes with an unusual engine configuration for this time of the year that includes a forced induction. The engine is 588cc parallel-twin with intercooler turbo that should provides massive power from it.
There was many turbo bikes earlier like the Honda CX650 Turbo, but the idea does not last long and forgotten years after its introduction. The problem lies in the way turbo works, for car it is okay but for motorcycle, it is not as easy what we think. More power means more enjoyment, but this is not the case for motorcycle. Turbo works at certain RPM after the turbocharger gets enough inertia to force the air to the engine cylinder. Read the rest of this entry »

After looking for a bike model from Suzuki on Google, I found this interesting picture of the 2004 Suzuki Satria 120 R which is marketed in Indonesia. The bike bears a significant resemblance of the Yamaha 125Z.
The bike itself is equipped with great specs to begin with. We can see the use of the front and rear disc brake, monoshock rear suspension, 120cc lean-angle 2-stroke engine. The engine are able to push 15.5PS at 8,000RPM and 1.50kgmf at 7,000RPM. Transmission is checked with the 6-speed gearbox. The tyre is wide at 2.50-17 at the front and 2.75-17 at the rear. All that packaged in 101kg of total weight. Read the rest of this entry »

Great mix of red and white of this Honda Wave Dash S. Equipped with lots of Racing Boy parts and Leo Vince exhaust pipe. A good idea to take for your bike too, but different people have different taste. For me, I think, this works! Read the rest of this entry »
