Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

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 grey/white tribute to a bomber plane, a pink “Little Racing” livery complete with a few rabbits, and a blue/white replica of its bigger GSX-R brothers.

Despite the toy-like nature, the RB actually had a 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. Note how the usual “Suzuki Advanced Cooling System” has been replaced by “Suzuki Advanced Comical System”:

This example is VIN: LA41A114327. The seller imported this motorcycle from Japan 7 years ago. He is the same seller offering up a never-ridden YSR80 concurrently here on Iconic Motorbikes.

This motorcycle is a JDM exclusive model that the seller states has “never been started and never had gas in it!“. It still has protective film from the factory on the silencer.

The odometer shows 2 kilometers (1 mile). The seller states these are delivery kilometers, and has spent time transporting this example to multiple display locations.

Modifications:
The seller states this motorcycle is stock.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on the original tires.

The sale includes two keys.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:
