The Suzuki GS750 is a motorcycle produced by Suzuki from 1977 to 1979.

The arrival of the first 750cc Yamaha and Suzuki four-strokes in 1976 marked a historical turning point. The former attempted to break new ground technically with a three cylinder shaft-drive machine, while Suzuki followed the classic route of a transverse four-cylinder layout.

Errors of Judgment

Suzuki had previously made two costly errors of judgement. The first had been the highly original GT 750 three-cylinder two-stroke, which lacked sportiness and didn't conform to the antipollution laws, and the second was the rotary-engined RE5. This time the marque was taking no risks, and satisfied itself by producing the best possible interpretation of a well-proven theme. Its sensible styling was inspired by the Honda CB750F, while the twin overhead-camshaft engine was comparable with the Kawasaki power unit.

The Best-Balanced Bike

It took some time for the GS750 to make a serious impression on the market. It quickly revealed itself as the best-balanced machine in its category. It led the way in all aspects. The road-holding was exemplary, it was marginally faster than any of its rivals, and its reliability was outstanding. Included in its comprehensive equipment was a digital display on the instrument panel that showed which gear it was in! In 1978 was joined by a big sister, the GS1000.
