1981 Suzuki RV-90


Suzuki first introduced the ‘RV’ series of ‘all terrain’ motorcycles in 1971, commencing with the RV-90. Distinguished by its 10-inch-wide balloon tyres, the RV looked like a 2-wheeled dune buggy, but in truth it was more of a fun bike than a serious off-roader. 50cc and 125cc versions followed in 1973, the smaller RVs being distinguished by their spine frames and the latter by its cradle chassis. The big RV was powered by a de-tuned version of the TS125 trail bike engine producing 10bhp with a 5-speed gearbox, while the  4-speed RV-90 made 8bhp, weighed 84kgs, could tackle 30° inclines and had a speed range of 40-50mph. The subsequent arrival of three-wheeled ATBs and then quads spelled the end for the RVs.

With only two owners from new, this RV-90 is fitted with a front crash bar and it has just 5,376kms (3,340 miles) showing on the odometer. According to the owner it is in very good original condition and it comes to sale with its Italian papers.
