TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Suzuki Motor Corp will pull the plug on its unprofitable automobile sales business in the United States after nearly three decades, hurt by a strong yen and a limited choice of vehicles that failed to excite consumers.

Suzuki said on Tuesday it would use a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by its U.S. subsidiary in federal court in California to shut down the auto business and to focus instead on sales of motorcycles, All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) and boats.

The departure of Suzuki ends a 27-year effort to gain traction in the world's second-largest auto market and should most benefit Kia Motor andNissan Motor , the two brands that car shoppers most compared to Suzuki, according to car shopping website Edmunds.com.

The bankruptcy could allow Japan's No.4 automaker to step away from its contractual responsibilities to the more than 200 dealers who maintain franchises, much asGeneral Motors and Chrysler were able to drop dealerships in their 2009 bankruptcies.

The bikes are here to stay....to be honest though Suzuki made some good cars the dealer network, service, advertising, and general trying from the company just wasn't there
