There's a place where every motorcycle enthusiast would like to visit at least once in their life, and that’s the  Suzuki Classic Team’s garage. It's where the old Hamamatsu racing bikes are treated in every detail, restoring them to their old splendor.

For those who are not lucky enough to visit it personally, Suzuki has prepared a virtual tour during which Nathan Colombi, the chief mechanic who restores and performs maintenance on iconic motorcycles, is the guide.

We’re talking about the RCGV250, the 500s ridden to success by Kevin Schwantz and Kenny Roberts Jr., and many others, including the SBKs from the '90s that still race in the Classic TT.

Each bike is in perfect working order and the damaged parts are replaced with exact replicas of those from the past.

All you have to do is get comfortable and take a journey through the history of Suzuki and its most beautiful bikes.
