Suzuki TS90 model history
1970—1976

I have tried to tell the Suzuki TS 90 model history on this page, as I know it. The 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.

The 90cc two-stroke single TS90 was introduced in 1970. It had 10 bhp, five speeds and high-drawn exhaust pipe. It was advertised as an enduro machine but just by looking at the pictures you can notice that the close fitting front mudguard made the bike more suitable for roads, or perhaps for dry trails.

The TS90 also had a sister model, a trail version called TC90 Blazer with dual-range gearbox with eight speeds, luggage rack and higher mounted front mud guard that made the bike more suitable for terrain. The TC trail series were built from 90 to 250cc but the whole model series was discontinued in the seventies. The TS series was more successfull and some TS models are still being produced.

On American market the 1971 TS90R Honcho got new Suzuki badges in the fuel tank. In Japan the model was called TS90 T and was listed as a street sports bike. An scrambler model of the same bike was called TS90 Hustler, that still had the sixties-styled bagde on the tank and painted mudguards instead of chromed ones (see the yellow bike below).

The exhaust pipe was drawn on the left side of the engine and a chromed galler was mounted on it to protect the rider from burns.

The 1973-year's TS90K was launched in Japan in December 1972. The model got a new design with high-mounted fornt mudguard and the exhaust pipe was drawn under the engine and then upwards on the right side of the bike, similar to the earlier TS125 models. The teardrop shaped fuel tank design was changed to a more angular one.

The model remained vertically the same, except for new graphics and color schemes and some minor changes until the TS90 was discontinued in after five years of production.

The TS100 (see the picture below) replaced the TS90 in America with similar design.
