Suzuki Nuda

1986 Suzuki Nuda concept motorcycle
One of the stars of the 1986 Tokyo Motor Show was the Suzuki Nuda concept. The styling attracted a huge amount of attention, and unlike most 20-year-old concept studies, still looks fresh today. The Nuda was reputedly operational and rideable, propelled by the DOHC in-line four GSX-R750 engine; it had two-wheel-drive, with power transmitted via shaft drives, and the front wheel was hub-steered in the Bimota fashion. Otherwise, details about this machine are surprisingly hard to find. Does anyone have a source of information? [With thanks to Jorge Lopes da Silva.]
