1975 Suzuki RE5 Rotary

1975 Suzuki RE5 Rotary

 

Back in the mid 1970's, Suzuki, along with the other Japanese motorcycle manufacturers, were all striving to come up with the latest design and technology to capture the world market for two wheeled transportation. With that said, the Suzuki executives and engineers decided that the Wankel rotary design was the wave of the future for the riders of that era, as well as for decades to come. There is an old saying, "hindsight is 20-20" and, looking back on it today, we can appreciate the RE5 for exactly what it is, an exercise in design with all of its really cool features including a very well thought out and expertly machined engine, its Italian designed canister style instrument cluster with flip top cover, cylindrical shaped tail light and completely round turn signals. The magazines of the day praised the RE5 for its handling even though it weighed in at around 500 lbs, as well as its sound and smoothness. This beautiful time capsule of art and design would make a nice showing at any motorcycle event or show, in a collection or museum or just pulling up to any tavern or gathering point where tire kickers and other motor heads gather. These well kept early Japanese bikes are skyrocketing in value and this rare beauty is certain to be a blue chip stock for some time to come.
