The model Bullet is built since the 30s. Roughly speaking, everything is still there, but the technique design has been adapted to the circumstances of the time. A final change came with the adjustment to emission standards in 2007. The shown one is a 2003 model. The 28 hp engine has little power reserves, but runs wonderfully long-stroking. It starts with Kickstarter or with DENSO electric starters. In a test, the Bullet drove 132 km / h according to navigation device.

The Honda CX series motorcycles, including the GL500 and GL650 variants, were developed and released by Honda in the late 1970s, with production ending in most markets by the mid 1980s. The design included innovative features and technologies that were uncommon or unused at the time such as liquid cooling, electric-only starting, low-maintenance shaft drive, modular wheels, and dual CV-type carburetors that were tuned for reduced emissions. The electronic ignition system was separate from the rest of the electrical system, enabling the motorcycle to be push-started and ridden in case of a total electrical system failure.

The last of the plunger models, the R25/3, was introduced in 1953.

Suzuki GSX 1400

09.07.2018 | 12:00

The Suzuki GSX1400 is a muscle bike manufactured between 2001–2008 by Suzuki . Intended to be a faster and more torque-laden version Suzuki 's similar Bandit 1200, with more up to date technology, the GSX1400 was still characterized as a "disco-era". The GSX1400 is redlined at 9,000 rpm; however in practice there is little point in taking it past 7,000 because the bike has strong low and mid-range performance.
