In the late 1960's Suzuki brought a 250cc motorcycle to the USA - the Suzuki X6 Hustler. It was the bike that built Suzuki's reputation for fast, reliable machines. This 250cc motorcycle was faster than most of the European 650cc twins that roamed the streets in those days (and 650cc / 750cc motorcycles were considered large displacement back then). Several of my friends had these, and I had ridden them a number of times. I had a similar Yamaha - but it wasn't quite as fast as the Suzukis.

Someone on the V-Strom forum posted a link today to a road test of the 1969 model. Slightly revised, and now called the T250 - it is essentially an X6 Hustler. I really enjoyed reading the road test - and thought some folks here would enjoy it also.
