    Suzuki GRD 650 (1983-1984)

    What Yamaha succeeded so wonderfully with the XS 650 line, that also got Suzuki thinking. There was still a demand for and a market for 'classic' parallel twins after the English example. Only the general opinion was that to be happy with that… at least you don't have to have a British twin. The Yamaha XS 650 line became legendary and iconic.

    Suzuki's fantastic T500

    From powerhouse to stunt offer. The Suzuki T500 has had all those qualities. And AMK number two of this year already contains a loving text about such a fat two-stroke twin that was once, when traded in at the first supplier, simply put in the back of the shop because, no matter how beautiful it was, it was almost nothing.
