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.

The Suzuki SP370 was the first Suzuki motorcycle with a single cylinder four-stroke engine, if you don't count the short-lived Colleda CO and COX models from the fifties. Unfoirtunately it had a bit too weak angine and it was a bit too expensive to become a great success. Yamaha, for example, could offer a 500cc trail bike for the same money as you had to pay for the SP370.

Colors: Red, Silver.
Initial frame number: SP370-100001.
