Suzuki GB has announced another new addition to the hugely popular Vintage Parts Programme, with the iconic GT250 X7 following the recent inclusion of the original GSX-R750 ‘Slabby’.
The GT series, first launched in Europe in 1973, quickly developed a cult following. Widely heralded as the first 250 to achieve a genuine 100mph, the now-sought after GT250 X7 made its debut in 1978. Today, nearly 850 parts are still available for the classic two-stroke parallel-twin.
Tim Davies, Suzuki GB Aftersales Marketing Co-ordinator, said, “Our Vintage Parts Programme continues to grow with this recent addition, with the GT250 X7 joining the RGV250, GT750 and the original GSX-R750. We recognise the fact that a lot of people are restoring and riding older machines from Suzuki’s history, and hopefully the Vintage Parts Programme makes doing so easier. We’re delighted to be able to announce the inclusion of another model to the programme, and look forward to seeing some of the projects uploaded to the site, too.”
With a bespoke area of the website dedicated to the programme, Suzuki GB has produced an extensive list of all of the parts still available for the X7 from the factory in Japan, as well as other downloads including service manuals, parts booklets and brochures. There is also an area for users to show off their own projects by uploading their images.
