Does a middleweight powered by a carbureted, air/oil-cooled with a claimed 106 crank spinning a slim 140 x 70/18 tire sound exciting? If it was and the above mystery bike’s scheme is blue and white, it was the Suzuki GSX-R750 that had you geeked.

A Gixxer 750 with 106 How times have changed.

The – arguably the bike that the replica racer revolution – its 25th anniversary in 2010. Suzuki decided to celebrate the birthday last year by a limited edition GSX-R1000, by little more than paint and “25th Anniversary on the mufflers and wheel rim striping.

The 2011 GSX-R750: The Sixxer’s Twin Brother

Suzuki the 750 and 600 at the same time, with the 750 virtually all the goodies with the 600 was endowed. Full details on the 2011 changes can be seen in our article.

The bigger Gixxer’s like the 600’s, now has pentagonal holes to help reduce losses from crankcase Additional shared updates revised cam profiles, hardened rods, improved crank pin and new starter motor. Otherwise, the engine is mostly the same as the model.

Visually, it’s to discern between a 600 and 750.

Key but subtle indicators you’re at a GSX-R750 are black wheels on the 600), slightly less decal scheme on the Blue/White and the number 750 on the tail section. that, good luck out a 750 in a crowd of GSX-R600s.

It’s a few years since I last a GSX-R750, but blitzing through the lap on the Barber Motorsports Park course, the bigger Gixxer’s displacement made it clear I was no on the 600. With a claimed 148 hp and 20 pounds to hustle around year, the 750’s meaty is especially appreciable when out of slower-speed corners.

In the GSX-R600 I said the supersport’s newfound torque allows a rider to run one gear higher than he or she normally when exiting The 750’s extra grunt little question as to whether or not it can the higher gear on corner

Lots of folks subscribe to the that there’s no replacement for While there’s some to that philosophy, the Gixxer 750 have something of a hidden within its engine – especially when ridden back-to-back the GSX-R600. Although the 750’s weight is a scant 7.0 pounds than the 600’s 412-pound weight, the 750’s few extra are found mostly in its engine, to Suzuki staff.

“Big you say, “who could the difference?”

You’re right. You couldn’t sense the narrow gap in wet – except when the 750’s is revving and spinning. Through the of physics the 750’s unfortunate but necessary extra pounds are magnified, as they’re not static but instead are manifest as rotating of the crank.

Along with the 750’s rotating weight that it to keep moving forward in a line, its BPF (Big Piston also has firmer compression settings than what the BPF uses. This heavier, combination means the 750 doesn’t flick in to turns with the feathery steering compliance in the GSX-R600.

The 750’s handling, the heavier steering effort, is a strong weapon in this arsenal. Overall chassis and suspension feedback on the 750 are also are good, just as on the 600.

Suzuki’s rider-selectable engine (S-DMS) is also updated on the now consisting of just A and B modes. as Suzuki widened the gap in power the two settings on the supersport 600, B mode a tick softer C mode in the previous S-DMS, the principle was applied to the 2011

However, the new 750’s power in B mode is considerably softer what C mode delivered on the model according to power overlays provided by Suzuki. the new 750’s B mode is likely more powerful, if even by a few when compared to 600’s power setting.

The 750cc class is held captive by the as no other manufacturer produces a race-derived machine with an in this displacement. The Gixxer 750 a lonely king.

Now that I’ve ridden the 600 and 750 ‘round the racetrack, the 600 better my tastes for track time – for its lighter-effort steering.
