The 1965 Suzuki X6 Hustler also called the T20 Super Six

Capacity: 247cc Power Output: 29 bhp/ 7.500rpm. Weight: 143 kg (316 lbs) Top Speed: 145 kph (90 mph)

When Suzuki introduced the X6 in 1965 it caused an immediate stir, especially among lovers of light-weight high-performance engines. The small 247cc air-cooled two-stroke engine was capable of almost 90mph and the motorcycle was suprisingly sophisticated.

The goal was to get 100 hp per one liter cylinder volyme, that is 25 hp from a 250 cc engine. Suzuki engineers acchieved this gole and even better. The 250 cc Super T21 (very similar to T20) that came 1966 had even more power: 30,5 hp.

Among the features of interest on this model was unusual separation of the oil pump instead of the typical oil/gasoline premix system. The Hustler was extremely popular and, at the hight of production, Suzuki produced over 5000 machines per month. Totally 35.500 T20/T21 was sold worldwide 1965-1967. Despite it's success, the X6 was only produced for three years.

A offroad version of the T20 was introduced (1967?) with the name TC250 (also called X6 Scrambler). See pictures of Supoer T21 and TC250 at the end of this page.

1. Six-speed gearbox
2. 20.3 cm twin-leading-shoe front brake
3. separate oil pump (not the usual premix)
4. Externally sprung telescopic forks
5. Light alloy barrels with cast-iron liner

Suzuki offered a scrambler version of the T20 in 1967. Some sources claim that the TC250 had slightly (one horsepower) more powerful engine that its sister model T20, other sources say that the models had similar engines. The TC250 was available 1967 to 1969 in the USA, the last version being upgraded with a special type of fuel tank and seat made of fiberglass, called the GP kit.

Another version of the Super Six was the T21 (also called T250 in Japan), with a luggage rack and a slighty tuned-up engine.
