|1971 TS250R and TM400R magazine ad from Sweden (MC-Nytt 8/1971).
Click to enlarge. There was an interesting article in the
same magazine of the Suzuki history (1909-1971), from the '71
point of view. Naturally the magazine author couldn't predict
the introduction of Suzuki's four-stroke macines a few years later,
and he couldn't think it was possible for Suzuki to keep up expanding
and making better and better motorcycles in the same furious rate
that it had been doing for the past 20 years. He also predicted
that Suzuki and Kawasaki could join their forces, he wasn't sure
if there were market enough for four big Japanese motorcycle manufacturerors
in the future. Today, over 30 years later, we know that Suzuki,
as well as Kawasaki, Yamaha and Honda has survived and kept on
making better motorcycles and kept on growing.
