1969 - 1972 Suzuki TS 250[edit]

1969 - 1972 Suzuki TS 250

Suzuki claimed the TS was heavily influenced and based upon the motocross machines of 1968 but, in reality the TS turned out to be a completely new design five-speed gearbox that is significantly beefier than the off road competition machine’s transmission. The design of the early motocross machine suffered because of its having been patterned after the dated Villiers engine, with it’s under square, 66 x 72mm bore and stroke set up.


1973 - 1981 Suzuki TS 250[edit]

1973 - 1981 Suzuki TS 250 1973 - 1981 Suzuki TS 250 1973 - 1981 Suzuki TS 250

Easily distinguishable from later models due to the lack of any tank branding except the S logo, at 127kgs it was also the heaviest of all the TS250’s. It was known as the in Japan and the Savage in the US, the UK didn’t get a name though just the designation letters and numbers.
