Suzuki Goose 350

The Suzuki Goose 350 (SG 350 N) was first introduced in 1991 and was produced until 1999. The motorcycle was based on the Suzuki DR350 enduro engine, which was slightly redesigned and reconfigured to reduce vibration and give the motor "sporty" characteristics. In general, the Suzuki Goose 350 is extremely controversial, as it traces the attempt by Suzuki to create a city bike that, although it did not have outstanding dynamic characteristics, would handle as sharply and clearly as modern racing bikes. However, the market did not appreciate this, and during the entire production period of the Suzuki Goose 350, only about 6,000 motorcycles were sold.

The main feature of the motorcycle is a 1-cylinder 4-stroke air-oil cooled engine, with a volume of about 350 cc, producing 33 hp. power and 32 Nm of torque. While the Suzuki Goose 350 billed itself as a "Supersport", the enduro 1-cylinder air engine looked like a mockery of the class.

Other important features of the Suzuki Goose 350 include an inverted fork, powerful front 4-piston brakes and 300 mm disc, characteristic sports bike features (sharp tail, deep seat), low clip-ons and wide rear tires (150 mm). All this only confirmed Suzuki's desire to create something sporty and well-controlled in the person of the Suzuki Goose 350, but it was not destined to take its rightful place in the line of urban motorcycles with sports characteristics, where in-line fours reigned supreme.

The "younger brother" of the model is the Suzuki Goose 250.
