Suzuki RG400 Gamma



In March 1983 Suzuki presented the RG250 Gamma, the first member of the becoming RG-Gamma family. The following year Suzuki introduced the largest member, RG500 Gamma and in 1985 even a 400cc version (RG400EW/EW-2) for the domestic market. It was destined for the highly competitive 400cc class in Japan and no bikes were made for export.

The RG400 Gamma, like its brothers, copied the Suzuki racer with its four water-cooled cylinder arranged in a square, disc valves and all the latest two-stroke technology. The chassis was as avanced, with an aluminum box frame and Full-Floater rear suspension.

The RG400 Gamma wasn't as long-lived as its brothers. The model discontinued only after two seasons.

Type code: HK31A

Some pictures of the RG400 Gamma. I found these on the Internet. I don't know if the lower fairing was an option or if the owner has trashed the fairing.
