In the 80s, motorcycle manufacturers were attempting to reach new riders by developing smaller size toys. Honda had the Mini Trail, Kawasaki had the KV, and Yamaha had a street option with the YSR. Suzuki had the RV50 for the dirt as well as a full-faired baby sportbike, the RB50 GAG. The RB, released in 1986, featured 4 different liveries: red/white, a blue/white replica of its bigger GSX-R brothers, a grey/white tribute to a bomber plane, and the pink “Little Racing” livery complete with a few rabbits.

Despite the toy-like nature, the RB actually had a proper aluminum box frame, hydraulic disc brake at the front and full-floater aluminum swingarm. The 141-pound bike was powered by a small 4-stroke 5.2hp engine.

Suzuki offered the RB50 (sold as the GSX-R50 in the UK) for just a couple of years, making them as rare in the US as they are smile-inducing.

This example is VIN: LA41A115090. It came to Iconic as an import from Japan; prior history is not known.

The odometer shows 8,333 kilometers (5,177 miles).

In preparation for the listing, the seller had us replace the battery and replace the flasher relay.
