Instantly relatable to urban cruisers, farm hands and surfers alike with low pressure balloon tyres perfect for loose ground, the iconic Suzuki ‘Van Van’ has earned a cult following since first launch in 1972 and re-introduction in 2003. Finished in factory Solid Black, (Code 019), to the tank, side panels and mudguards, the paintwork is excellent and commensurate with the incredibly low miles with only light hairline marks to the mudguards. All factory decals, stickers and labels are present and correct and the satin black/chrome shocks and chrome bars are perfect and match the classic retro looks this bike exudes. Identification and information plates and stock frame number stamping are clearly legible. All mirrors, light clusters, rubbers and other trim is preserved like new. The large generously cushioned seat in black with white piping is comfortable, stylish and in perfect order. The ultimate beach bike and great fun for the learner legal rider.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Using the bulletproof Suzuki 125cc 4-stroke single cylinder SOHC unit featuring fuel injection, power output equates to 12hp and 9.8Nm maximum torque. Weighing just 128kg, this lightweight machine performs and sounds as good as it looks. The engine and all ancillaries are exposed ‘naked’ in all their pristine glory. Modern motorcycle features such as electric start and fuel injection allow ease of use and the 6-speed one down five up gearbox performs perfectly and is very easy to use. Awesome fun!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The large 14in front and 18in rear chrome wheels with stainless steel spokes look superb with the huge balloon rear tyre perfect for sand plugging. The factory Dunlop K180 tyres of size 130/80-18 and 180/80-14 with deep nobbly tread are virtually as new. Slightly tarnished wheel spokes will only be noticed by the hyper-critical and this does not detract from the overall condition. A combined front disc and rear drum brake system offers fantastic stopping power.
Registered new on 19th April 2017 by Suzuki Main Dealers, Fraser’s of Gloucester, this example was purchased by the one and only owner, Miss Sophie Fishpool. Having covered just 777 miles from new, this example is very close to a new machine but with a large saving from list price! The history file consists of the original plastic wallet containing the service book stamped by the supplying dealer along with user manuals and Datatag documentation pack. The V5 registration document lists no former keepers and there are two original keys, the spare still wrapped in its protective sheath and an original Suzuki Street range brochure. A hugely fun, retro and iconic motorbike, the perfect blend of classic looks and modern capability.
