Suzuki T20 magazine article from Tekniikan Maailma 7/1968, Finland (four pages). Click to enlarge. The Finnish journalist writes that the T20 is an important motorcycle, mostly for its 6-speed gearbox. He tells that it's rather light, powerful, has great brakes, comfortable, even rather cheap. According to the him (Tapio Sunell) it's almost perfect motorcycle!

Suzuki T-20 and AS-50 Sports

Pictures from Brighton Show (Tekniikan Maailma 10/1969). Click to enlarge.
I found these pictures on the Finnish Tekniikan Maailma magazine. The magazine covered the '69 International Cycle And Motorcycle Show in Brighton, UK. The racing styled Crooks Suzuki (based on a T20) and the AS50 Sports were the bikes that were mentioned from Suzuki.
The author told that the T20 could be made this delicious looking by adding a racing fairing, aluminum fuel tank, racing saddle etc. Eddie Crooks broke several world records in August 1968 with a bike looking exactly like this one. The text mentioned two records: 1.000 km with a speed of 151,786 km/h and 12 hours with a speed of 149,306 km/h.
About the AS50 Sports was told that it had five speeds, Posi-force lubrication system, Reed valve, flashers, scrambler styled good-looking exhaust system and it was easy to trim. The price in UK was 129£ and the maximum speed about 90 km/h.
