Suzuki ZR50SL brochures & adverts

I have put some Suzuki ZR 50 L info on this page. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

Model history...

I don't know much about time custom styled Suzuki ZR50SL. Roy Bacon wrote in his book of Suzuki that the model was introduced in 1981, as a more conventional custom styled version of the OR50. Both models based on the ZR50/X1/GT50/RG50 (different names on different markets) Suzuki moped site Suzuki Bromfietsen told me that on there was a manufacturing date 08-78 printed on his ZR wheels. He sent the brochure below to me but he can't be sure of the model year. All the records of the ZR50SL at Suzuki Holland were destroyed in a big fire.

Anyway, when OR50 (released in 1979) was a chopper styled small custom bike with high bars and turned-up seat, the ZR50L had larger wheels and looked more like the GS450L.

1981 ZR50SL sales brochure from Holland (two pages). Click to enlarge.
This brochure scan was sent to me by Johan, courtesy of Suzuki Bromfietsen. I'm not sure of the year, it may even be a couple of years earlier — if the model was actually released before 1981, see the Model history above. The ”P” in the model name stands for ”pedals”. Pedals were required on all mopeds in the Netherlands.
