Suzuki Van Van 50 (RV50)
1972—1982


I have tried to tell the RV 50 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.

All the RV models were called "VanVan" in Japan, a word expressing sound like "Bang". It also means like "More and more" or "Keep going on!" in Japanese. RV90 (VanVan 90 in Japan) was marketed in the USA with a catch phrase "Run more and more! She brings you wherever you want" in 1971. (Thanks, Takeshi Osada!)
