As for the Samurai and Shogun names, Suzuki India used to have two popular two-stroke motorcycles with the Samurai and Shogun names in India, manufactured by TVS Motor Company as part of the partnership that started off as Ind-Suzuki and then renamed as TVS-Suzuki  from 1982 to 2001. The Suzuki Supra, Suzuki Samurai, Suzuki Shogun and the Suzuki Shaolin (the first motorcycle with a five-speed gearbox at that time), were all two-stroke motorcycles produced under the TVS-Suzuki partnership, followed by the four-stroke Suzuki Fiero model. Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited was established in 2006, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Suzuki, Japan.
