THE SUZUKI 500 SPOTTER’S GUIDE CONTINUED
Twin-crank V4, 140bhp. Started with XR72 in ’87 – by this ’89 XR75 it had a narrower V-angle and 160bhp.
Suzuki made a new V4 each year and went big-bang in ’92. This 165bhp ’93 bike had the first quickshifter.
Completely revised design for 1999. 192bhp 80° V4 and truly bewildering chassis adjustment options.
