If you’re a regular here you may have noticed that partial to the occasional GSX-R. through to 1000s have reviewed on this site, and I’ve always been the guy to do it. Despite having the opportunity to lay my on some pretty special I’ve always found giving my own hard-earned to my local emporium and hooning off into the on a GSX-R 750 of some sort or

So with that in mind, how the current incarnation of the GSX-R 750 up to its illustrious forebears?

For some reason, this is still the sports 750 on the market. The capacity to dominate sales as the smallest bike, but now buyers are seduced by the numbers offered by litre machinery, even though the 750 is faster than they ever be able to manage Perhaps it’s not helped by the that, visually at least, is no difference at all between the 750 and the 600.

the lack of a proper championship holds it back. Either a class of motorbike that logically be dominating the roads all Europe remains woefully

It’s probably worth you at this point that unlike some of the other tend to run their models unchanged for at least two years. So the difference between the 2008 and models is the colour of the rear hangers. And even that a reliable indicator.

Things been hard in the market this year, and Suzuki didn’t import any true models until very in the year to allow their to shift stock of the 2008 It isn’t that the bike sold well, just it hasn’t sold as many nobody else has either, the problem) as Suzuki expected. as a market percentage the 750 continues to a lonely but successful furrow.

For starters, let’s look at the In fact, let’s compare it to the K6 that we tested last and see changed. It’s fair to say at a glance the only obvious is the exhaust, which has grown in stature and decreased in aesthetic

The reason is quire simple. To enough gas to make the engine run at its while remaining within constrained noise limits, the can to get considerably larger. That little stubby on the K6, while great, wasn’t very

Which will be why any aftermarket you could get were much then. I know I’ve it before, but it’s as true now as The can looks much better in the It’s big, yes, but nicely made and it’s so it looks reasonably trick.

And it weighs no more than an one, either.

Moving to the end, the other obvious is the headlight, which is much to accommodate the three bulbs a central projector-type dip beam and a high beam on either Really, the other cosmetic are pretty minor. The fairing is different, of course, because of the It’s slimmer, yet fatter. make sense to me really,

But from some angles distinctly less of it, while others there’s definitely It works well enough, managing to look sufficiently and svelte to keep the GSX-R at the looking end of the Japanese sportsbike And that’s about it.

Until you get on. there’s something odd on the right Yes, the power mode up until now the sole preserve of the brigade, has found its way onto the I’ll come back to it.

For now, just accept it’s there, OK? From the it’s pure GSX-R. it would be, wouldn’t it?

Everything is placed for comfort and performance, and are enough toys to keep happy without distracting the real business of riding. As come to expect, the mirrors are spaced and work better you can reasonably expect on a sports The levers are in the right position out of the and the brake lever is easily for reach, which though enough these days is nice.

The seat, again as come to expect, is fairly and there’s a reasonable amount of as well. Perhaps you could go a distance on this. Thinking it, we’ve said that the last few GSX-Rs we’ve as well.

Suzuki seem determined to keep their sportsbikes practical, and that’s for which we should be grateful.

the beast, again as normal Suzuki, requires the clutch to be in. No problem there, and the starter also chops the lights the engine fires to preserve power. Seems obvious, I but you’d be surprised how many and cars don’t have obvious tweak and get flat on cold dark mornings as a Anyway, fire it up and the resulting is quite a pleasant surprise.

It may a huge exhaust and pay all due respect to EU but this is still a GSX-R and it sounds like one. response is crisp and the tacho has an urgency that no amount of will dim.

Then we onto that button on the Let’s get it over with, we? because Suzuki’s mode is, frankly, a complete waste of It’s vaguely useful on the GSX-R 1000, where the to tame the ferocious amount of and torque with more just the right wrist and basic riding skill can be an absolute godsend.

Though I’m pushed to of when, in all honesty. I guess in the snow and ice it might have though even the limited left available would be enough to spit you off in those Anyway, the 750 doesn’t have the torque and power of the 1000, and doesn’t need the mode

The standard, full power gives you exactly that. power. The middle setting, B, gives you essentially the same of power as a 600. But without the Or the fun, to be honest.

It just flat. And Mode C, the lowest mode, feels as though joker has pulled a couple of leads off and stuck a sock in the air So just don’t touch button.

I’ll not mention it

Enough talking now, ride.

The clutch is typically light, and first engages the gentle snick we’ve to know and love with gearboxes. Pulling away is fuss free, the engine a reasonable amount of low down Certainly enough to get moving needing vast amounts of slip, anyway. The riding turns out to be as comfortable as first suggested, and the mirrors do indeed for seeing the world behind, as as your elbows. So far so good,

The standard electronic steering (that’s another change the K6) is light and unobtrusive at low speed, firming up as you get faster. It’s good for a standard fitment

Riding through traffic may not be most people have in when they buy a GSX-R, but a sad fact of life that, at point, you’re going to to. So it’s a distinct advantage this particular GSX-R is happy commuting through the hour. It’s narrow that filtering is a doddle, and you can the mirrors easily to fold back for those even moments.

Throttle response is for this sort of work, and the are both powerful and sensitive. lock is compromised by the fact this is a sportsbike, but it’s pretty good. In fact the thing that really the Suzuki down is common to about every sportsbike we get to

The horn is pathetic.

No matter how the GSX-R is in town, though, it belongs on the open road . And it truly shines. Because isn’t the huge torque of a the power is far more accessible as much fear of flipping or your way into casualty. not to say that the 750 is slow or in any way weedy. It Simply that you can open the harder and earlier and generally more liberties than you otherwise expect to get away

And it shows in point to point where the 750 is genuinely as quick as else out there. You can carry speed, accelerate with commitment and, most leave yourself a bigger margin with this than any litrebike I’ve so far. The handling, nimble and in town, becomes sure and once the speed picks up.

The 750 is easy to turn and sticks to chosen line beautifully but ever feel flighty or There’s enough power to get you out of the junction to silly speeds in no at all, should that be thing, and the brakes are as up to the job out here as are in town. The noise, too, better as you start to explore the end of the rev range.

And it was pretty good

I have also been enough to take a GSX-R 750 on the . It’s like being on the road, but better. Handling to be better yet when speeds got pushed, the brakes were up to the job, even losing of speed for Mallory Park’s and the slipper clutch showed yes, actually these do have a use on a road bike. if it’s only on the track they really come their own.

Just to sure that the test was I threw a bag on the back and went off for a Yes, it’s a sportsbike and as the touring experience isn’t as as it might be. But it’s perfectly regardless. You genuinely can carry luggage for a week or two away do it right and you can carry enough for a away) and you can get to your destination needing the urgent, and full attentions of a chiropractor.

Fuel is pretty reasonable, with a cruising speed giving a range of around 130 miles, is also around the time you expect to want a break of sort anyway, if you’re remotely sensible. If you’re not remotely sensible then range is rather less.

To sum up, then, the GSX-R 750 is a genuinely all round bike. Though are subjective, I think it’s It is faster than I am, and unless a professional superbike or MotoGP then it’s faster you, too. It handles as as I could possibly ask, and on the it’s right up there RS250s and Buell Firebolts as the cornering bike there is.

the standard tyres are a little at times, and would benefit being replaced as soon as It’s real-world usable, and forgiving enough to use as everyday Yet it still managed to press my in ways that very few do, every day, every I got on it.

It’s also astonishingly value for money, being to insure and run than a 1000 by way, as well as saving a on the initial purchase price.

The accolade is a simple one. I needed to replace my last after it got nicked, the shortlist of despite the exotica I get to play (and, to be fair, the excellent on offer elsewhere), rapidly to one bike. Yes, I bought a 750 K9 . With my own money.

You should consider doing the same.
