An established manufacturer of weaving machinery, Suzuki's first move into the motor cycle industry was in 1952, with the development of a 36cc two-stroke engine called the Power Free which clipped to a bicycle frame. Adequate performance and reliability combined with the demand for cheap transportation in post-war Japan made it a success. In 1954 the company changed its name to Suzuki Motor Company Limited and produced its first complete motorcycle, the Colleda.
