From the beginning, Japanese makers were split between engine technologies, Honda making four-strokes and the others two-cycle engines. In 1976, Suzuki successfully changed their direction from one to the other with their excellent dohc, four – cylinder range, directly rivaling Honda, in the 400, 500 and 750cc capacities. Their highly-praised GS750 quickly gained an excellent reputation for smoothness, good handling and reliability, while the power output figures of 70bhp at 8800rpm speak for themselves. YJR 178T is a completely standard example which was imported from the USA some six years ago. The recorded mileage of approximately 14000 miles is believed to be correct, the machine still being in excellent, original condition and having the original 4 into 2 exhaust system. Recently fitted with a new front tyre, this ‘seventies Suzuki in black has a current MOT certificate and V5C and is ready for use.
