The Suzuki RG150 was a 148 cc two-stroke road motorcycle produced by Suzuki in Thailand. The bike was produced from 1996 until 2000. In 1998, it was selected as the second-best new motorcycle of 1998 by Motor Trend magazine. It was produced almost exclusively for Thailand although around 100 were exported to New Zealand.

The frame was made of box-cut steel and had a banana-shaped rear swingarm. It had a single mono shock on the rear with a single disc brake. The front suspension was a traditional telescopic fork (that could be preloaded) also with a single disc brake. The wheels were tri-spoke Enkei mag-type wheels. The engine was a single-cylinder water-cooled two-stroke engine. It had a six-speed close ratio gearbox with a kick-start. The engine featured AETC (Automatic Exhaust Timing Control), basically a valve in the exhaust port of the engine. At low RPM it restricted the exhaust gases so the engine produced more torque; at high RPM (approx 7800 RPM) it opened up to increase top RPM power. The exhaust also had an expansion chamber to give better top-end power. Maximum power was 36 hp (27 kW) at the engine crank, and top speed was 180 km/h; top speed was limited to 180 km/h (but able to be bypassed) due to the gearing allowing the motor to hit the rev limiter in top gear. Modified bikes have been known to exceed 200 km/h. At such point the gears hit their physical limitations. The bike featured a full fairing which was unusual for such a small bike.
