Description

Additional photos of this Suzuki RB50 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 is VIN: LA41A121501.

The odometer shows 704 kilometers (437 miles).

Maintenance:
In preparation for the listing, the seller had us clean the carb and install a new battery.

Modifications:
This RB50 appears to be completely stock, though it is missing the mirrors.

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




Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Dunlop tires that have aged out.

The sale includes one key.
