Cool Bike -1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma

Most people don't realize what this is when they see it, most think its just an older GSXR. This is actually a very rare machine that was never sold in the U.S. Market, and you will not see a cleaner one.  The unique engine, a twin crank,Square Four, 2-Stroke was modeled after Suzuki's Grand Prix machines of the mid-80's. The carbs are actually mounted on the side on the engine. This little machine weighs only 343 lbs, but makes 95 Hp.  

I've been fortunate enough to ride one of these, and there is nothing else quite like it. The engine isn't made for torque, but when the 4, 125cc cylinders come on the pipe the Gamma just jumps!  Kent, this bikes lucky owner, bought it in 2006 in Woodstock N.Y. with only 800 miles on the odometer.  Sweet!  Another cool ride seen on a Time Warp Tuesday night!
