|Model history 1969
The Suzuki A100 was a long-running basic model with a simple two-stoke
disc-valve engine, pump lubrication and four speeds. It was introduced
in 1967 and actually manufactured even today, at least for Asian
and Indonesian markets. A 50 cc version called A50 was released
in 1969, looking almost identical with its big brother. In between
the two models fitted also A80, a 72 cc version of the A100.
The A50 had five speeds and a good town performance. Not many
changes were made during the year. The A50 was basicly the same
bike even in the seventies. Some later models were offered with
a front disc brake.
I'm not sure how long the model was manufactured but the A50 was
still around at the end of the 1970's, perhaps even later.

I found this brochure scan at the archives of a Yahoo discussion
group titled as Motorcycle brochures. I think it was uploaded by someone called David.

|1979 A50P sales brochure from Holland (two pages). Click to enlarge
This brochure scan was sent to me by Johan, courtesy of Suzuki
Bromfietsen. The brochure was printed in August 1978 so I'd
guess the model year is 1979 (could also be 1978 if the Suzuki
Holland printed the brochure very late in the year). The P
in the model name stands for pedals. Pedals were required
on all mopeds in the Netherlands.
