Prototype Suzuki GT750 ATV 4 wheeler

Post by Evans Ward »

What year was this brought out and did it garner any serious interest in going in production. It is a GT750 powered 4 wheeler. Has anyone found any ride tests for this beast? Interesting vehicle….. :clap: I’m guessing 1973 or so.

Not seen anything like that, but I can see why it didn't catch on - they put the steering wheel in front of the passenger seat! :wth:

Looks almost like an amphibious design. Very period piece. Who made it and do we know anything about the logo/badge on the front end?

Might have been a California show/concept/prototype vehicle perhaps. Way cool.

I tried to search and find the article again on the innerwebs but no luck this time. :( I remember Suzuki bringing it out as a concept and that it was powered by a GT750 engine.

I didn't find it with google image search either. background looks like some sort of machinery show, but can't get much more that that. White men and English signs suggest it was in the US though.

Would be interesting to learn more about it.
