The Suzuki GSX-R750 is credited as the first modern racer replica suitable for road use. It was unveiled at the Cologne Motorcycle Show in October of 1984 as a 1985 model and featured a lightweight aluminium alloy frame, flatslide carbs, and air/oil cooled engine.

It was given a slightly longer swingarm in 1986, the year it was introduced into the American market.

In 1992, the GSX-R750 got an all-new water-cooled engine as well as a revised frame, bodywork, and suspension. The 1996 model introduced SRAD (Suzuki Ram Air Direct), which used air intakes at the front of the bike to direct more air into the airbox.

The bike got another bike update in 2006, with a new motor, frame, and swingarm. Suzuki increased the stroke of the motor and also moved to a “stacked” transmission.

The most recent update was as of 2011, when Suzuki made major changes to the bodywork and styling, and improved the brakes and suspension.

The Suzuki GSX-R750 finds a sweet spot between the superbike and supersport offerings from the other brands. It’s small size make it feel as nimble as smaller 600 cc sportbikes on track, while the extra displacement and low end power keep you from needing to wring its neck. Despite being long in the tooth, the GSX-R750 is a favorite amongst riders.

The 2017 Suzuki GSX-R750 has a base MSRP of $12,299 and is available in White, Suzuki Blue, and Black and Yellow.
