Suzuki stared from pretty humble beginnings but now has over 100 years of heritage behind its name. Michio Suzuki, then a producer of looms (a device used for weaving textiles) pursued his passion for cars and bikes and founded the company in Hamamatsu, Japan in 1909.
During the post-WWII period, Suzuki’s motorised bike – the Power Free – earned a reputation for quality and reliability. Hot on its tracks was the 125 cc Colleda motorcycle and the pioneering Suzulight lightweight car that stimulated Japan’s automotive revolution. Michio Suzuki simply focussed on reliable, affordable methods of transportation.
Each of these vehicles was a significant development, as they were engineered by optimising the most advanced technologies of the period. Since 1955, Suzuki Motor Corporation has grown immensely and today their products are available in 192 countries worldwide.
