The Suzuki GSX-R750 was a in-line four, four-stroke Sport Bike motorcycle produced by Suzuki between 1985 and 2019. It could reach a top speed of 171 mph (275 km/h). Max torque was 63.58 ft/lbs (86.2 Nm) @ 11200 RPM. Claimed horsepower was 146.84 HP (109.5 KW) @ 13200 RPM.

Engine[edit]

The engine was a liquid cooled in-line four, four-stroke. A 70.0mm bore x 48.7mm stroke result in a displacement of just 750.0 cubic centimeters. Fuel was supplied via a double overhead cams/twin cam (dohc).

Drive[edit]

The bike has a 6-speed transmission. Power was moderated via the slipper clutch.

Chassis[edit]

It came with a 120/70-zr17 front tire and a 180/55-zr17 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via double disc. brembo 4-piston in the front and a single disc. nissin-1 piston in the rear. The front suspension was a inverted telescopic, coil spring, oil damped while the rear was equipped with a link type, coil spring, oil damped. The GSX-R750 was fitted with a 4.49 Gallon (17.00 Liters) fuel tank. The bike weighed just 485.02 pounds (220.0 Kg). The wheelbase was 54.72 inches (1390 mm) long.

1985 - 1988 Suzuki GSX-R 750[edit]

With over 100 HP output, the GSX-R 750 was a detuned version of the GS1000R racer. The street-legal limited version GSX-R750R model was introduced for 1986. The basic specifications of the bike were the same as for the standard model (except for the seat height) but the the ”double R” model offered some interesting goodies that improved an already great bike.


Intro[edit]

Video showing the evolution of the GSX-R750 from 1985-2007
more GSX-R750 videos

The GSX-R750 was built to compete in the various worldwide championships as well as to be used on the street. It is considered as one the very first street-legal racers, there had been a number of sports machines but the GSX-R750 was something else. It was a revolutionary motorcycle with specifications like over 100 hp power output, less than 180 kg dry mass, 55° leaning angle, lightweight alloy double-cradle perimeter frame, 18-inch wheels and streamlined design based on the factory Formula 1 and Endurance racers. Upon its introduction in 1985, Suzuki's PR department claimed that it was the first aluminum-alloy framed production motorcycle; the truth was that the German firm Ardie had beaten them to it back in 1930.

The air/oil-cooled motor had cylinder dimensions of 70,0 x 48,7 mm and had 29 mm flat slide carbs. In a racing trim (there was a tuning kit available for competitive racing) the GSX-R750 engine provided 130 bhp. The new high-tech engine was narrower than earlier inline-fours and materials like magnesium was used to keep the weight down to minimum.

The GSX-R750 was basically a street-legal and detuned version of the works GS1000R racer. The flat slide carburetors gave faster response to the throttle compared to the vacuum carburetors. It also required the rider to be more gently with the throttle. There were no compromises, it was very quick in hands of a skillful rider.

The components of the bike are all high quality but make sure that the tires, suspension and bearings are all in good condition or the bike can scare the living daylight out of you! The GSX-R750 engine is considered as reliable but we all know that there is no such thing as bulletproof engines. The frame of the early models is not that rigid and bend easily when dropped.

The GSX-R750 entered the market in March 1985. There's not many bikes out there in mint condition, most of them are ridden very hard and seen their best days. Nevertheless the evolution of modern sport bikes started with the GSX-R750. It's a real classic.

This was a change in two years a dramatically faster revision than the standard four year model lifetime. It featured a radical short-stroke version of the oil-cooled engine, increasing stroke by 4mm and bore by 3mm, which allowed for rpms up to 13,000. Suzuki also ducted cool air from the front fairing to the airbox; a nascent form of ram air that while not high in pressure allowed for lower intake air temperatures.

Early Suzuki GSX-R750 were carb-fed (injection didn’t appear until 1998), which can cause the DOHC in-line four cylinder, ram-air assisted motor some carb-icing problems on cold, damp days. It’s quite peaky as well, which dovetails neatly with its track-focus, but can be an issue if you’d rather dawdle than thrash. Some early ’96 Suzuki GSX-R750 had some cylinder head/piston clearance problems.

2001 Suzuki GSX-R750[edit]

2001 Suzuki GSX-R750

Often referred to as the benchmark in high-performance sport bikes, the GSX-R750 has indeed reset the standards as far as track machines are concerned. The 2001 MY GSX-R750 carries on the heritage of the older models, incorporating Suzuki's newest technologies and ready to take on anyone and anything on both circuit and the street.

The engine of the GSX-R750 is light and compact, but there's nothing tamed about it. With 141 horsies under the seat, the bike is anything but a beginner's ride. Cue in a high-rigidity frame and top-spec brakes and get ready for a breathtaking, exhilarating experience.


2002 Suzuki GSX-R750[edit]

2002 Suzuki GSX-R750

The Gixxer that started it all, the GSX-R750 is still living up to the highest expectations with the 2002 model year. More than often referred to as the benchmark in the class, the new GSX-R750 brings a fully adjustable swingarm pivot system, new bolt-on bungee hooks, a new polished stainless steel exhaust and as an extra feature, both headlights now work in the low beam position.

Racing-inspired geometry for the frame and high-performance engineering minimize flex and shaves off weight, while smart ideas help eliminate external oil hoses by incorporating the lubricant routing into the very engine.

Some say that the sport bike revolution began with the GSX-R750, but it doesn't really matter whether this claim is true or not. The real life shows a sizzling hot bike which is lighter than its liter-class sisters, and which still delivers a massive power figure just under 140 hp.

The package contains a highly-aerodynamic bodywork, a compact but comprehensive instrument cluster, fully-adjustable suspensions, strong, high-performance calipers, race-grade cast aluminum wheels and a powerful ram-air intake with dual throttle valves to maintain consistent power delivery through the entire rev range.

While the GSX-R750 is THE Gixxer, this doesn't mean that technical progress will avoid it. The 2004 MY GSX-R750 receives a solid update in the form of an all-new 32-bit ECU which allows better engine control for increased power delivery and better fuel management and race-grade titanium valves.

A new, more aggressive bodywork, black powdercoarted swingarm and frame, and high-performance radial brakes are also on the house. The frame is narrower and this hels the air flow, minimizing drag and adding to the overall acceleration and top-speed.

The Suzuki GSX-R 750 the original racer replica. Suzuki introduces the all-new 2004 GSX-R750. Since the beginning, the GSX-R750 has been about overall balance of handling and engine performance. For 2004, the GSX-R750 takes that balance to an entirely new level with an improved compact, lightweight design that creates an awesome combination of handling, performance and style.


2005 Suzuki GSX-R750[edit]

2005 Suzuki GSX-R750

The 2005 model year GSX-R750 marks two decades of Gixxer excellence, and Suzuki has prepared a special version. However, the house of Hamamatsu delivers a base version of the bike for riders who are not exactly fond of the slightly retro livery of the 20th Anniversary model.

The two bikes are identical spec-wise, so the choice is only a matter of aesthetics. You'll be in charge of 155 horsies you must rein with a 6-speed manual gearbox, with excellent grunt on both track and street. A bike for experienced riders, the GSX-R750 will offer a rewarding experience to those who dare push their limits a bit further.

The 2006 MY GSX-R750 introduces a tweaked engine which integrates a lot of changes aimed to provide weight reduction, optimum combustion efficiency and better power delivery. The list of component which have been redesigned is too long to mention here, but if we were a bit stricter we'd say thet the 2006 MY GSX-R750 has an all-new engine altogether.

The back-torque-limiting clutch is also new, and so is the revised chassis. The rear suspension linkage is derived from the RM-Z450 and updated to the necessities of a sport bike. The suspensions are new, with matching new Showa elements and bigger brakes.

There are no major changes in the technical department for the 2007 MY GSX-R750, as this replica racer generation seems to have been able to comply with both the riders' and competition's demands for years in a row. With multiple parts and technologies derived directly from the works racing programs, the GSX-R750 delivers 150 hp and a blasting riding experience on both street and track.

Aggressive like a liter-class superbike, yet only slightly larger than a 600er, the 2007 MY GSX-R750 is a great choice between the two classes.


2008 Suzuki GSX-R750[edit]

The 2008 MY GSX-R750 arrives with a heap of updates in all the departments. The engine is new and sports a new injection system, while Suzuki's latest engine management software takes care of the performance.


The chassis is also revised with a new electronic steering damper, new and lighter cast aluminum wheels, revisited USD Showa forks and a larger tank.


2009 Suzuki GSX-R750[edit]

The GSXR that started all the madness becomes better with each passing year, as Hamamatsu is constantly finding way to tweak the machine for more performance even when no huge changes are being implemented. This allows the stock version of the 2009 MY GSX-R750 to replicate a lot of the race bike's character, especially as radial brakes, adjustable high-performance suspensions and on-the-fly engine mapping options are also delivered as part of the package.

2010 Suzuki GSX-R750[edit]

The 2010 MY GSX-R750 maintains the successful recipe of its predecessors, putting on the street a bike designed for racing, but with amenities to make it legal and rideable in more casual scenarios. Open-class racetrack performance is delivered in a middleweight package which is usable for daily commuting as well. Still, riders get a fully-evil bike, equipped with fully-adjustable premium suspensions, on-the-fly adjustable engine mapping, radial mount calipers and many other features and technologies derived from the racing program.

The 2011 MY GSX-R750 combines the best of both worlds as it packs the extra grunt of an engine superior to that of the supersport class yet retaining its lightweight construction. These two attributes have been the winning combination right from the early days of the model, while the recent developments of the bike only made it better.


This racing-derived sport bike also comes with an electronically-controlled steering damper which adapts its intervention according to the bike's speed.

The massive 8-kg weight reduction is probably the biggest improvement of the 2012 MY GSX-R750. A whole lot of bits and pieces have been redesigned using the latest developments of the MotoGP and Endurance World Championship programs, and this allowed Suzuki to maintain or increase the performance of the bike while making it lighter and more compact, with an improved feel,


The frame was also redesigned to complement the new Showa BPF suspensions and Brembo monoblock radial calipers. The bike is literally fully-loaded with racing technology, but is still street-legal.

The GSX-R750 has come quite a long way since its introduction in 1985, but the modern models have only gotten better and better, with Suzuki constantly working to increase power and improve handling, turning them into modern, state-of-the art machines. If anything, the GSX-R750 is the sweet spot between the lightweight 600cc machines and the uncompromised performance of the liter-class bikes.


Usable as a bike for daily rides, the GSX-R750 feels better on the the track, where you can unleash its full character. This sport bike also comes with dual engine mappings, race-derived suspensions and multiple engine tweaks inspired by Suzuki's roar racing programs.

Back in 1985, the first GSX-R750 started roaming the streets and spread fear on the race tracks. Almost three decades after the Gixxer family was born, the 2014 MY GSX-R750 proudly shows it has gone a long way, and lives up to the great expectations. It packs weight and dimensions which are similar to the 600cc Gixxer, but backed by a solid amount of extra power and torque like any decent racing-focused machine should deliver.

Driving modes inspired by the racing programs, multiple other track-developed technologies and a racey vibe that's hard to find elsewehre are also part of the GSX-R750 game.

Three decades after the introduction of the first GSX-R machine, the 2015 model year GSX-R750 carries on the racing heritage. Packing power which is almost tapping into the liter-class superbike territory, but offering everything in a compact size that's more like a 600cc Gixxer, the 2015 MY GSX-R750 is a most worthy successor of the great racers of yore.


The 2015 MY GSX-R750 arrives with Showa Big Piston Fork, two performance engine mappings, a race-grade slipper clutch, adjustable footpegs, radial brakes and all the cool features of the bigger bikes.
