Years produced: Claimed power: 32hp 8,rpm Top speed: 90mph approx. I was halfway out of the door of the classic bike dealership, heading for home, when the little blue Suzuki in the corner caught my eye. Half an hour later, my head was tucked down between the raised handlebars, and my eyes were glancing back and forth between the road and a slightly faded speedometer whose needle was creeping towards the 90mph mark. Down below, the two-stroke engine was revving almost to its 8,rpm redline as I prepared to snick the six-speed gearbox into top gear. Its capable big brother the T twin had been around for two years when the T was launched in , but the bigger two-stroke never quite captured the imagination of a motorcycling public that preferred four-stroke engines when it came to larger road bikes. Launched in , the cc two-cylinder T20 was light and quick good for over 90mph, it was even raced successfully , and its six-speed transmission was a first for a production machine.

Retrospective: 1973-1975 Suzuki GT250 Hustler

And the predecessors of this GT Hustler had helped a lot. Its parallel twin engine, perfectly square at 54 x 54mm bore and stroke, had first seen the light of the showroom floor in as the X-6 Hustler, a tiger, which astounded the American motorcycling mind with a plus-mph top speed and six-speed transmission. The engine was a simple piston-port design, with new-fangled automatic oiling, and cylinders were aluminum with iron liners.
