Property of a deceased's estate
c.1971 Suzuki T250 Hustler Project
Registration no. not registered
Frame no. T250-50709
Engine no. 250-50798
Introduced in 1965, Suzuki's T20 Super Six was an entirely new design although still a 250cc parallel-twin two-stroke like its T10 predecessor. The frame was now tubular and of duplex loop type while the gearbox offered the rider the luxury of six speeds for the first time on a road-going motorcycle. With its precise handling, good brakes, and a powerful motor, the Super Six received rave reviews in the motorcycling press and soon established a giant-killing reputation in production machine racing. Improved T250 Hustler and disc-braked GT250 'Ram Air' models followed but in essence the piston-ported twin altered little. Tested by Bike magazine (Autumn 1971 edition), a T250 Hustler reached an indicated 96mph and rocketed through the standing quarter-mile in 16.2 seconds, bettering the Yamaha YDS7 and BSA B25 Gold Star it was pitted against. There are no documents with this T250, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed.
