Did anyone know, or realise, that Suzuki stopped production of their super-famous GSX-R750 two years ago? Well neither did I, so don’t flay yourself. But yes, it is true and for reasons that had more to do with that Euro draconian emission crap than anything from the Suzuki factory, possibly? But two years have passed and for whatever reason the stunning GSX-R750 is back and for sale in South Africa once again- hurrah!
Scooters, big or small, are the only sector of motorcycling that’s enjoying a steady sales growth in South Africa. So, what’s the attraction? Well I’ve owned two for the past decade, so I need no convincing from anyone. They are though the easiest things to ride, carry shopping and sometimes contraband and, in the case of Asian countries, an entire family. That’s another reason to own one because the family can enjoy it as well, unlike an intimidating 200hp motorcycle. I certainly enjoyed my day out with these new Kymco models that are now available throughout SA.
