A moderate export of Suzuki motorcycles from Japan started
in the early sixties. After the launching of the T20 (X-6 in
America) in 1965 the export really boomed and now Suzuki motorcycles
are sold worldwide. It is possible to make a list of the countries
where Suzuki motorcycles are distributed today, but I don't
care to do it. The list would contain over 120 countries.
On these pages I plan to put some information of the countries
Suzuki motorcycles have been manufactured and sold today. Most
of the bikes are naturally made in Japan, but there are also
plants in almost every continent. You can find a list of the
manufacturing countries here.
I also plan to make lists of the models that were sold in different
countries and also find their specs, that will show the differencies
between models sold on different markets. The most significant
differencies can probably be found in the engine performances.
The laws and regulations are the main reason for the different
power figures in different countries.
If you have any full line brochures or info of the Suzuki models
sold in your country on a specific year, please don't hesitate
to contact me. If you can scan the entire brochure for me (JPEG
format, 200% scanning ratio, 60% JPEG compression ratio preferred)
and mail it to me and I will put it on my site after making
a web friendly bersions of the scans. Please send only one brochure
page at the time to make it easier for me to handle my e-mail.
You can also send the original brochure to me by mail if you
can part from your brochure. Use the following address: Jarmo
Haapamäki, 64030 Hälleforsnäs, Sweden. Don't
forget to enclose information of how I can contact you (e-mail
address) if any questions may pop up.
Any information about the import of Suzuki motorcycles (especially
the early days) in your country (or any other country), links,
tips and corrections are also welcome!
