#Vintage star- Suzuki T 500

The Suzuki T series bikes were manufactured by the Japanese manufacturer Suzuki between the year 1963-77 and had engine capacities ranging between 90-500cc. It is a piston ported air-cooled 2 stroke twin cylinder engine. The 250cc and above models were fitted with twin leading shoe drum brakes and after 1975 disc front brakes were introduced in the bikes

By the time Vettel was born, Suzuki had already stopped manufacturing of this bike and is Vintage today but the hero had the passion for same, hence bought a Suzuki T 500 series of bluish green color and he still has it and drives it in his leisure time
