Suzuki RM80 model history

I have tried to tell the Suzuki RM 80 model history on this page as I know it. This 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.

Unfortunately I have very little information of this model. Do you have anything to send me to fill in the holes? I do know that the early models were air-cooled but some time in the early eighties the engine got water-cooling and more power.

Many improvements. The 1984 RM80XE got a new, stronger frame but no importand measurements were changed. The wheels had received straight spokes to increase endurance. The bike has lost some weight, especially behind the engine, the exhaust is now made of aluminum. The carburetor is Flat-side type creating better response. The mid-range torque has been improved (larger exhaust chamber and altered port timing) and the gear ratios (six speeds) are now closer together.
