Suzuki Other description

This is a blue 1975 Suzuki RE-5 Rotary in good running condition with 17,948 miles. Only around 6,300 RE-5'S were produced. Suzuki commissioned Italian industrial designer Giorgetto Giugiaro for the RE5 styling. The "tin can" instrument cluster encompassed the usual lights and a low-fuel warning light, total loss oil tank light and digital gear indicator. The tubular "can" motif was also used in the tail light, and spherical indicator lights finished off the "rotary" theme.

The engine is a 497cc liquid-cooled single rotor Wankel rotary engine. The engine has two oiling systems, two ignition systems and even two cooling systems. All of this, it turns out, is necessary to keep the rotary engine happy as it runs from idle to speed; the cooling systems — one liquid and the other oil — keep the rotary from self-destructing from the heat it generates. Primary power transfer to the clutch and transmission is by duplex chain. There is a hesitation when you get on the throttle fast. 

The original paint is blue and black with normal, minor wear and signs of its age. There is a noticeable scratch on the gas tank (shown in pictures). The green "can" is slightly cloudy due to age. It has a pod that flips open when you turn the key which is original to the RE5. The RE5 offered handling unlike that of any Japanese motorcycle of the era, and is ready to ride.

The bike is located in Indianapolis and we encourage inspections.
