Both the Suzuki GSX-S750 and GSX-S750Z ABS deliver a torque-rich riding experience with a 749cc inline-four derived from the iconic GSX-R750 sportbike. The Z is differentiated by not only having the additional ABS rider aid, but it also displays stylistic changes such as a blacked-out exhaust and fork as well as a different color scheme. Both are standard motorcycles in styling and riding comfort, meaning they have minimal bodywork and are more upright in regard to ergonomics when compared to the aggressive wind-slicing sportbikes. That is not to say these models don’t pack performance. These Suzukis have firm suspension and a wide handlebar to leverage the 465-pound weight in the turns.
In 2018, the GSX-S750 was significantly updated both internally and externally to what Kent Kunitsugu said, “significantly raises Suzuki’s fun quotient.”
Competition in the upper-mid naked bike category includes the KTM 890 Duke R, Kawasaki Z900, and Yamaha MT-07.
New for 2020, the GSX-S750Z comes equipped with ABS. The 2019 MY saw the Z without ABS and the base model with, but now the rider aid has switched between the two. The base model is available in Metallic Matte Black and the Z ABS comes in Pearl Glacier White/Glass Sparkle Black with hints of red throughout.
