Description

Please Note: This bike starts but it will need work (detailed in the “Maintenance” section) before it can be a rider.

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

The Suzuki RG250 Gamma was introduced in 1983 as the first mass-produced motorcycle with a 100% aluminium box section chassis. This, combined with the light weight of <300 pounds, anti-dive forks, and "Full Floater" rear suspension, is why it is considered by some to be the first street-legal race replica. Things got even better in 1986 when Suzuki rolled out two upgrades – Automatic Exhaust Control (AEC), and a gorgeous Walter Wolf livery which paid tribute to the race team.

This example is VIN: GJ21B106257. It came to Iconic as an import from Japan; prior history is not known.

The odometer shows 11,909 kilometers (7,399 miles).
