THE 2017 Suzuki GSX-R750 thoroughbred sportsbike has arrived in Australia, bringing with it three striking new colour schemes, superbike-like power and the lightweight feel and handling performance of a 600cc supersport machine.
The original 750cc Supersports bike on the market way back in 1985, the GSX-R750 continues a legacy that saw the brand take race replica motorcycles to a whole new level.
Powered by an advanced 750cc, in-line 4-cylinder engine producing 110kW of power and 86Nm of torque, the GSX-R750 brings together a race winning heritage, engine performance, crisp handling, compact size and light weight.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of two race-developed engine control maps that regulate the fuel injection system, secondary throttle valve and ignition system to suit personal preference or riding conditions, such as going from the racetrack to the street or breaking in a new rear tyre.
The GSX-R750’s chassis has been designed with an emphasis on weight reduction and compactness to improve overall handling and provide an ideal power-to-weight ratio.
The lightweight twin-spar aluminium frame, made from just five cast sections and cast swing-arm, delivers superb cornering on both the road and racetrack, with optimal rigidity and unmatched accuracy. 3-way adjustable foot pegs help offer a comfortable, ergonomic riding position for a variety of riders.
The GSX-R750 features inverted, lightweight Showa Big Piston Forks (BPF), developed on the racetrack for even more supreme handling. The fork design eliminates the internal cartridge assembly inserted into each fork leg and instead uses a single 37.6mm piston riding on the inside wall of the inner fork tube.
This endurance-race-proven design, along with a lightweight fully adjustable Showa rear shock, delivers more effective, linear damping performance, resulting in better feedback to the rider for supreme handling.
For greater stopping performance, the GSX-R750 employs four-piston Brembo mono-block radial mounted front brake calipers mated to 310mm floating discs, and a single piston rear brake caliper with a 220mm disc.
The full function instrument cluster sports an analog tachometer; LCD readouts include speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS and gear position indicators.
In a standout Suzuki MotoGP inspired Metallic Triton Blue, Glass Sparkle Black / Marble Daytona Yellow (our favourite – pictured) or Pearl Glacier White colour schemes and backed by a two year, unlimited kilometre warranty, the MY17 Suzuki GSX-R750 is now available for a Recommended Ride-Away Price of $17,490.
