2008 Suzuki GSX-R750 Ride

The 41mm Showa fork features updated and now incorporate both high and low compression damping adjustment in to preload and rebound adjustment together allow for more suspension tuning.

There’s like a head bobbing, wailing, 140 mph fifth gear to get the blood stirring. Especially that corner happens to be 8 at the Fastest Road in the West, on OE tires. That’s the scenario we ourselves in at Willow Springs Raceway behind the windscreen of updated GSX-R750.

Suzuki MotorcycleUSA to spend some aboard their not too big, not too but instead what could be the sized GSX-R. Despite the not too appearance compared to the bike of the ’08 750 hosts a number of that on paper seem trivial. However, in function are quite noticeable.

In an age when and 1000s are a sportbike enthusiast’s choices the 750 has faded away, by either: a) fast enough for but still relatively tame or b) a triple-digit speed wheelieing rocket, which has more than most compact Between those two extremes is the Gixxer 750 finds itself placed. Although it lacks any competition, Suzuki continues to their original 20th Superbike.

For this year the aim was to increase the three most aspects of a sportbike: engine, and cornering performance.

Like its displacement brethren, the 750 sports identical looking bodywork Suzuki claims reduces drag, yet still maintains wind protection for the rider. A new headlight uses three side-by-side light beams. The 55W halogen beam functions as the low and is bordered on either side by a 60W multi-reflector halogen high

The ram air intakes have been closer together where air is the highest and the old wire-mesh intake have been replaced a louver-type setup which air flow enabling the airbox to higher pressure. The fuel has also been modified and now closely resembles the one on the GSX-R1000. capacity has received a slight as well up to 4.5-gallons (from

The tail section looks flatter and has integrated LED brake and between the built-in turn The instrument cluster is as familiar as but has a slightly updated look. A analog tach, digital LCD trip meters, reserve meter, gear indicator, shift light, and bright, warning lights are all right as well as Suzuki’s versatile three position Drive Selector (S-DMS) indicator.

The 750 alive from as low as 7000 making it easy to get on one wheel.

the sharp new bodywork is essentially the 749cc liquid-cooled Inline-Four. vitals like the 70.0 x bore/…, 12.5:1 compression and intake and 23mm exhaust size all remain the same. has changed is the intake camshaft, now features slightly less for increased mid-range performance.

ventilation holes linked cylinder bores allow air beneath piston … to be more quickly thereby internal pumping pressure and power losses.

Engine is achieved via Suzuki’s Dual Valve (SDTV). The primary valve is controlled via the rider’s while the secondary valve is via the engine management system and smooth throttle response. Two of the downdraft double barrel bodies are new and all incorporate dual injectors bestowed with 8 twice as many as last which help to produce a fuel spray for more combustion.

The primary fuel injector has been placed at a steeper and aimed directly at the intake New 10mm NGK sparkplugs provide a spark igniting the finer mixture. Controlling the engine’s complicated processing requirements is a more powerful digital control unit that a 32-bit microprocessor and 1024 of ROM.

One of the most noticeable is the replacement of the ultra-trick MotoGP-inspired silencer by a larger triangular-cross-section which proved necessary in to meet ever toughening sound and emission regulations. A valve resides inside the and helps negate the performance-sapping that facilitate Euro 3 and 2 EPA emission standards. Although the looks rather unsightly on the screen, in real life it looks pretty cool.

The of this year’s 750 is largely with the exception of subtle to the rear subframe, fork, and steering damper. The rear is now of lighter, more simple The 41mm Showa inverted features updated internals and now both high and low speed damping adjustment in addition to and rebound adjustment which allow for more precise tuning.

Gone is the fork treatment that distinguished it the 600. The Showa rear also features internal and, like the fork, is now adjustable. Chassis geometry unchanged at 23.45 degrees and 3.82 inches (97mm) of while wheelbase stretches to inches.

In spite of the larger exhaust cornering clearance is still as as ever and like before, the footpegs are adjustable and can be moved in directions within a 14mm and vertical range.

An electronically steering damper is tucked neatly above the lower clamp. A solenoid valve by the engine management system oil flow for easier steering at speeds and increased damping at high speeds.

In the braking up front, dual radial-mount four-piston calipers feature piston sizes (32mm and and grab onto a pair of slimmer (down from to 5.0mm) 310mm diameter The front discs are attached via 12 pins instead of the eight previously for increased heat and to help combat warping. A new cylinder with a smaller bore (down from pushes brake fluid smaller diameter brake

This helps to increase input leverage as well as A single piston Tokico caliper latches on to a 220mm brake disc.

The 750 rolls on cast aluminum wheels are slightly lighter and more due in part to the offset three-spoke in which the spoke curve the direction of spinning wheel. sizes remain the same at 3.5 x up front, and 5.5 x 17-inch in the rear in specifically engineered Bridgestone rubber in sizes 120/70 and 180/55 rear.

After sampling the ’08 GSX-R600, I was to see how an extra 150cc’s of engine would increase the fun factor. into the low 31.9-inch saddle the same comfortable ergonomics make me feel at home on any of the GSX-Rs. The bars aren’t too low and pegs not overly high and the riding position is a great between track and street.

Accelerating out from pit lane and the 2.5-mile road course the displacement can be immediately felt. the smaller GSX-R takes a bit to up, the 750 is already coming alive as low as 7000 rpm. Keep the pinned and the tachometer moves wildly towards its 15,000 rpm Things never feel out of though, as the 750 makes a steady of useable, un-intimidating power.

noise sings in unison as the climb but doesn’t sound as raspy as the 600.

Historically, the 750 has always possessed gearing, and this year’s continues with the trend. the engine has the muscle to pull the and out on the ultra-fast Willow road gearing seemed especially matched to each of the nine with the rider only to choose from second fifth gears.

And if more stopping power is just pull back a bit on your two right-hand fingers. big track isn’t known for any hard braking areas, we experienced not even the slightest of brake fade.

GSX-Rs developed a reputation for having performing slipper clutches and unit continues to impress. A drive cam shape and updated plate material help the already tremendous amount of at the clutch lever. Although we really notice an increased of feedback, clutch lever felt as light as ever.

Suzuki didn’t release any tech specs on the updated fork and shock, in application the new performed much better the previous generation. Feel has significantly improved even the stock Bridgestone BT-016 This allows the rider to be to get a better read on what is beneath them and allowed us to flirt with the adhesion on the versatile Bridgestone street

Spring rates were a on the soft side for a more 180-pound rider, but with the range of adjustment, they still plenty capable of both an enjoyable and controlled at speed.

the chassis geometry remaining the the Suzuki did feel like it direction a bit more responsively its predecessor. This might be due to the use of the steering damper, which at speeds and in the pits couldn’t be detected, yet completely quelled when exiting hard on the gas and through Turn 6’s rise.

In spite of the larger exhaust cornering clearance is still as as ever and like before, the footpegs are adjustable and can be moved in directions within a 14mm and vertical range. We left in the stock setting and experienced no grinding, yet we weren’t at all cramped.

For us the $10,599 MSRP is simply the perfect GSX-R.
