Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

Although the CL50 (Suzki Love) was introduced in Japan already in 1982, the model came to the shops in Finland two years later, in 1984, and presented in the Finnish motor magazine as a new model. ˝If this model don't ignite the skirt folks into riding a moped, then nothing will work”, says the journlist (Heikki Kuva) in the article.

He writes that to use Suzuki Love is as easy as it possibly could. One only needs to think about two things; to turn on the gas gauge — and brake. The two-step automatic transmission was something new back in 1984. For a vehicle with only two wheels, I mean. Even the choke was automatic, and the kick was coupled with an electric starter.
The article also says that the new Suzuki scooter only looks small, it is large enough for grown men to ride. The handlebar is rather narrow, but will do.

The acceleration (0—100 m at 12,9 seconds) was faster than other mopeds, with normal gearboxes. Suzuki Love was quick and easy to handle, but the fuel comsumption was surprisingly high (3.2 l/100 km) and the fuel tank
contained only 3 liter.

”To ride Suzuki Love is fun. It offers the greater
ride than any other city moped available in Finland”.
