Loom Manufacturing Company presented the side-valve powered CO in May 1954, the first real from Suzuki. The single-cylinder four-… engine developed horsepower and ran quite smoothly, to its heavy fly wheel. attached to magneto .

No driver’s license was at the time for riding the Colleda CO. The government had recently decided no driver’s license were needed to ride a bike an 4-… engine up to 90cc or a engine up to 60cc. That rather well Suzuki’s of engines for its first models on the in 1954 — the Diamond motorized motorcycle with 2-… engine with 2 hp and the four-… with 4 hp.

The Colleda CO had a steel frame, front fork, shock on the rear wheel and coil seat. It had no turning lights but it did a headlight and a rear light. It was the Japanese motorcycle provided a speedometer, built in the headlight.

The gearbox had three speeds. One claim that the model had brakes but I haven’t been to confirm this.

The rigid and luggage carrier made the suitable for carrying of goods. say that the 90cc Colleda more than it actually but the ”sound effects” and the rigid made the bike quite among Japanese customers.

But the four-… at the time were not as reliable as the simple two-… machines and Suzuki discontinued even the 125

All the forces were concentrated in two-… engines. It took over 20 years before built four-strokes again, an unsuccessful attempt of using rotary engines.

The four-… models got company by the Porter Free and 123cc ST 1955. Both models two-strokers with steel telescopic front forks and rear suspension, similar to predecessors. All of the Colleda two-… used the conventional piston construction, the rotary (reed) engines came much

A 250cc twin, Colleda TT an American style design was in 1956. The picture above the model shown at the ’99 Motor Show (the section).

The Colleda TT is the predecessor of all 250cc 2-… twins, the T20, T250 and GT250. The engine had a square 54 x 54 mm bore and the same as all of the models just It also had new ”modern” floating arm with shock absorbers at the but the leading front fork makes one to think of the early

The slightly modernized Colleda was presented. The only difference I can on the pictures, in lack of technical is that the canter stand to made out of thinner material and a was attached to the the front mudguard.

A new of the Colleda ST was launched with a engine, now delivering 7 hp. Even the Porter Free had a more engine in 1956. The Colleda received a same sort of tank than the COX, to models look even like each other.
