Like all the Japanese manufacturers, Suzuki recognised the importance of the North American 'off-road' market and began offering appropriate models in the mid-1960s. Its first efforts were modified roadsters but as development progressed Suzuki's street scramblers became more capable on the dirt. One of the most successful was the TS range of single-cylinder two-strokes, which commenced in 1969 with the TS250, while the successor ER series shifted the focus even more towards off-road capability. Introduced in 1980, the ERs incorporatted a host of features intended to improve practicality, including serrated folding footrests, plastic mudguards and rubber-mounted indicators, while reed valve induction was used on the larger models. This TS250 ER was purchased new by the current vendor's husband. Always kept garaged, the machine has covered only 1,511 miles from new and is offered with Swansea V5C. There is no battery or keys with this Lot, which is offered without reserve and sold strictly as viewed.
