These you don’t hear much Suzuki’s GSX-R750 ($12,199). motorcycles like MV Agusta’s F3 the limelight in the middleweight and supersport it’s easy to forget the once mighty GSX-R. all, it’s been for over two decadeshow good can it be?

Visually the GSX-R looks compared to the now classic lines of the or the F3’s pure elegance. its styling is modern and some be drawn to its sharp, angular that bulges with We’re especially fond of it in the Daytona Yellow/Glass Sparkle as it stands out more than dressed in typical flagship colors.

Although it lacks the Ohlins jewelry of the R-spec it does feature top-shelf monobloc braking hardware for eye appeal.

Reach out to the controls and easy to tell that the has the most logical ergonomics. The of the controls is very natural and Also of note is how the rider lower and more inside the rather than atop the Triumph or MV.

Looking at the spec chart this as the Suzuki offers the seat height. Adjustable controls is another nice that allows for a more ride, say if you want extra leg during a leisurely street or added cornering clearance fast-paced track outings. a great feature and one that is on the European middleweights.

A visit to the proves the GSX-R is the lightest as it weighs 419 pounds with a fuel load. That’s pounds less than the MV and two than the Triumph. Despite its advantage, the Suzuki doesn’t quite as nimble as the Euro on the roadespecially at a more moderate

“You could this bike to your mom and she ride it,” jokes “But if you wanted to ride it you haul … on it, too. a really great all-around but if I had to nitpick I’d say that the doesn’t turn quite as as the MV or even the Triumph. But it’s close.”

Out on the street, the Suzuki’s Showa suspension components delivered a plush ride that the GSX-R the bike we could the longest, with the least The range of suspension adjustment is high and the damping circuits accurately to changewhich is great you’re looking to tailor the handling.

When pushed the still offers plenty of performance but doesn’t serve up same sharp, road-hugging as the Triumph or even the MV. One thing against the Suzuki is the fitment of Battlax BT-016 tires. a great tire for street and even track use, it offer the same level of feel as the Pirelli’s fitted on Euro bike.

Still, at the Suzuki’s chassis is about as they come. The bike with precision and goes where the rider wants. as impressive is the high-level of pitch during hard braking as the end doesn’t dive excessively, the rider the confidence to squeeze the lever deeper and deeper.

Some of credit goes to the now Brembo monobloc front calipers. While the brakes offer as much initial as the Triumph’s, once you reach a threshold, power and feel ramp up quickly, which the majority of our testers prefer the brakes. Combine that the superb action of its fork loaded, and the Suzuki can achieve stopping force evident by its top in the braking test, slowing 60 mph in a distance of just over 118

But where the Suzuki really is in the engine department. Although it offer the strongest bottom-end once you get the engine spinning 5000 revs it immediately both Triple-cylinder engines the highest amount of torque. The curve is also … which makes the motorcycle to ride and helps the rear stay glued to the pavement.

While the Suzuki’s engine sound nearly as wild as the MV or the Daytona’s it still offers a intake roar that it fun to ride.

“It’s definitely not lacking in the department,” agrees Garcia. didn’t feel maybe as down low as the Triumph, but wick up the and it gets with the program. I liked the Suzuki engine but it some character as compared to the

( Top ) The Suzuki’s Showa suspension for a wide range of adjustment. ( ) The Suzuki’s powerband is so smooth it reduces the need for traction in an experienced rider’s hands. ( ) Brembo monobloc braking increases the bling factor offering good performance on the too.

Like the others the makes use of a six-speed gearbox, its version includes a true, slipper clutch. The functionality to be spot-on perfect during deceleration allowing the rear to slide gently across and resist any wheel hop or chatter.

the transmission’s gear ratios as close as the MV’s it’s a moot point considering how the GSX-R’s powerband is. In fact the thing that held the from maximum points in the category is that it can’t the lighting fast upshifts of the equipped bikes.

Contrary to the MV the doesn’t offer advanced engine adjustment aside its full-power ‘A’ map and a de-tuned map designed for use on slippery road or for a beginner rider. It isn’t a breaker, however, as the GSX-R has throttle response and the powerband of its is so linear-feeling that in some way it the need for traction control in the of a more experienced rider.
