Suzuki Weaves In and Out
Japan’s fourth largest automobile maker didn’t get its start with cars. Suzuki started in 1909 as Suzuki Loom Works, founded by Michio Suzuki who invented a new type of weaving machine. The looms were successful but Suzuki looked at expanding and based on customer demand started with the car in 1937.
Several years later, several compact prototype cars were done.
World War II put a halt to car manufacturing and afterwards Suzuki went back to making looms. The cotton market collapsed in 1951 so Suzuki once again thought about cars. However, Japan needed affordable and reliable transportation.
A clip-on gas powered engine attached to bicycles emerged as the preferred choice and in 1952 Suzuki sold the Power Free, a 36cc, one horsepower, two-stroke engine. Its ingenuity allowed the rider to pedal with engine assistance, pedal without the engine or run completely no engine power. Suzuki won a financial subsidy from the Japanese government and the Suzuki Motor Corporation was born.
Suzuki found success and in 1954 manufactured 6,000 motorcycles a month. Those early motorcycles were all two-stroke engines. It wasn’t until 1976 that Suzuki introduced the company’s first four-stroke bikes with the GS400 and GS 750.
Racing championships naturally followed. Suzuki starred in 1970 becoming the first Japanese manufacturer to win a motocross championship with the 250cc title. Also that decade, Suzuki won the 500cc division in road racing and motocross.
In 1979, Suzuki swept the podium at the AMA Superbike Daytona 100-mile.
In the following years and decades Suzuki racked up more championships and offered a variety of motorcycle styles, sizes and types. Today, Suzuki’s motorcycle line includes cruisers, dual-sport, off-road, motocross, street and sport bikes.
