Suzuki FR80 Scooter

The Suzuki FR80 is a scooter, very similar to the Yamaha Townmate and the Honda C90 and was produced by Suzuki from the early 1970s to the early 1980s.

It is powered by a 80cc, 2 stroke, air cooled, single cylinder engine which incorporated a self mixing system so it had a separate 2 stroke oil tank and petrol tank. It is started by a kick start mechanism which turns over the engine. The engine was quoted as producing 6.8 hp (5.1 kW) @ 5,500 rpm or 8.04 Nm (0.82 kg-m) @ 4,500 rpm.

It had a small 6V (six volt) battery fitted and an ignition switch to provide easy starting and for constant and even power to the lights and horn.

The engine drives a 3 speed semi automatic gearbox, with a heel and toe gear shift.

It was capable of carrying a rider and a passenger and could propel them up to between 35mph and 40mph, making it quite a speedy machine compared to some small mopeds.
