Long before the Suzuki Hayabusa and DR650 motorcycles and Suzuki King Quad and QuadSport ATVs became powersports favorites, the world’s 11th largest automaker began in 1909 in a sort of unlikely field; the silk industry. Ever since the days of early world exploration, Japan was legendary for their silk garments and textiles. At the beginning of the 20th century, company founder Michio Suzuki founded Suzuki Loom Works as a builder of weaving looms. In 1929, Suzuki invented a revolutionary new style of weaving loom which quickly became popular all across the world. Suzuki spent its first 30 years mass-producing these machines. Not one to rest on his laurels, Suzuki believed that his company could expand their horizons by offering new products. He created a small, economical car in 1937 to meet customer demand but World War II led to the Japanese government to shutter all non-essential commodities--including Suzuki’s cars. After the war, Suzuki resumed loom production and the business received a major boost once the US government allowed cotton shipping into Japan. However, the success was short-lived as the cotton market collapsed in 1951. Suzuki returned to building motor vehicles and with Japan clamoring for small, efficient, and inexpensive personal transport, Suzuki responded by developing motorcycles and microcars. By 1954, Suzuki’s motorcycle output was at 6,000 units per month. Today, Suzuki is a major manufacturer of motorcycles, ATVs, automobiles, and engines for the entire world market. They are also among Japan’s “Big 4” in powersports with Honda, Kawasaki, and Yamaha.
