Description

Additional photos of this 1987 Suzuki RB50 GAG 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 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. Why? We have no idea, but how many all-pink OEM paint jobs do you know about?

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 (VIN: LA41A-119928) is out of a collection sourced in South Africa (and currently available at our shop in Santa Monica, California).

The odometer shows 62 kilometers (39 miles).

It does not have mirrors.

In preparation for the listing, Ollie cleaned the carb and installed a new battery. The speedometer cable broke while Ollie was test riding it, but we have replaced that as well.

The tires are from 2013.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California, this Suzuki is offered on a Bill of Sale only.
