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-119616) is the first of several bikes soon to be listed from a collection sourced in South Africa (and currently available at our shop in Santa Monica, California). The last owner in South Africa was the third owner, who notes that the bike spent the last decade on display before being shipped here.

Per the third owner, the second owner bought the bike approximately “18 years ago as a gift for his baby girl. The motorcycle was only used a couple of times in their yard and then stored inside the owner’s man cave as a novelty item. It was recently serviced with a new spark plug, fresh oil and filters.

It came to us with 398 kilometers, however Abhi recently took it for a spin and confirms that it runs well. The odometer now shows 404 kilometers (251 miles).

Cosmetic Blemishes:
There are several small scratches. Photos of all known cosmetic issues are included in the album up top.
