Lot 103 - 1992 Suzuki SW1
|£5,000 - £7,000
With amazing design, Suzuki’s GN 250 engined SW-1 is a fully enclosed vintage retro-styled machine but was sadly only made for the Japanese home market in 1992, making it extremely rare. Finished in cream, the bike is belt driven, with twin supertrapp, adjustable silencers and dual leather-look seats. It has a rear pop open side storage and looking from the rear of the bike it is very reminiscent of a1960’s Vespa.Its unique concept design was created by Naoki Sakai and the SW in its name is derived from the initials of the Water Studios. It was awarded the 1992 Good Design Award.
This example is in very good original condition and one of only 200 which were produced, with very few ever leaving Japan. Presented in its original cream colour, this bike comes with a new Ministry of Transport test certificate and V5 log book. A rare machine which is sure to turn heads amongst the motorcycle fraternity wherever it goes.
