It’s remarkable how random chance can shape the world. Back in 1985, as Suzuki launched the game-changing GSX-R750, the sportbike industry was in a full-scale technology war, with ever-quicker, faster, and more aerodynamic models arriving annually. But somewhere along the line, someone threw one of these full-blown sportbikes down the road, and after finding replacement body panels too costly, stripped down their bike instead. The modern naked bike was born. Fast-forward three decades, and that expeditious solution to an expensive problem have given us brilliant factory-developed bikes like Suzuki’s GSX-S750 and ABS-equipped GSX-S750Z.
