Suzuki RG125/RG125E model history

I have put some Suzuki RG 125 info on this page. The page is still under construction. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

From GT125 to RG125

RG125 was launched 1978, simultanously with RG185, formerly knows as GT125 and GT185 with new paint jobs. Neverthelsess, the RG125 was still sold in some countries with its old name, GT125. In some countries the model was known as X4. The RG125 didn't have the Ram-Air cylinder head of the older GT125.
