Description

Additional photos of this 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 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 Note how the usual “Suzuki Advanced Cooling System” has been replaced by “Suzuki Advanced Comical System”: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: LA41A107013. The seller acquired it at a Mecum auction in Las Vegas in April of 2021. As such, the history is not known.
