Awesome 1976 Suzuki GT550 For Sale – Walkaround video

  • by

At time of writing, We Sell Classic Bikes.com has a great example of the Suzuki GT550 for sale.  If you like the sound of a two-stroke then you HAVE to watch this video.

The Suzuki GT550 is a two-stroke, air-cooled, three cylinder 1970s-era motorcycle in Suzuki’s “Grand Touring” GT series. The 550 has a ram-air cooling system for the one-piece cylinder head. Two-stroke engines lose power after the engine reaches its critical temperature, so Suzuki used a system from its 500 cc two stroke twin cylinder racer, the T500.

A January 1973 Cycle World road test said the GT-550K Indy was a good compromise between the GT750 Watercooled and the GT380, with substantial enough weight and size for to long-distance touring with a passenger, and being only just light enough and narrow enough, with a 150 mm (5.8 in) ground clearance for “deft canyon road manoeuvring or hustling through traffic”. They tested the bike’s top speed at 158 km/h (98 mph) and acceleration at 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 5.8 seconds or 0 to 14 mile (0.00 to 0.40 km) in 14.59 seconds at 87.8 mph (141.3 km/h).Braking from 60 to 0 mph (97 to 0 km/h) was tested at 112.5 ft (34.3 m).

There is no price listed on the We Sell Classic Bikes website but they are asking £6,495 for the bike on eBay.
