Payback Time: Suzuki 750 (1996 – 1999)

The 1996 750WT got a brand-new beam (in place of the old perimeter frame ), less and packed more Give Honda Fireblades to think about, eh Suzuki. -)

By the this generation of GSX-R 750 out, the Honda Fireblade was already thrashing everything on the the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-9R helping the cause of 750cc either and the Yamaha R1 was waiting in the Everyone was ready to write off the 750 like a phoenix rising the ashes, Suzuki hit the motorcycling with this – the GSX-R

The first big change was the chassis, the old perimeter frame being in favour of a proper, contemporary frame. Suzuki also put the on a strict weight loss with the Gixxer losing all of 25 which helped improve in a big way. Befitting the new package, also lavished top-spec components on this GSX-R, it even more of a tool for the committed rider .

If the things looking up in the chassis area, the guys weren’t about to be behind either. The GSX-R 750 brand new engine was much (around 10 kilos!) than the old was fed by bigger carbs, revved and made close to 115PS at the For the first time, the bike got an engine management system the carbs, which paved the way for EFI systems on the WW and WX models.

For a bike that everyone had prepared to write off, not bad at eh? So good was this GSX-R ridden hard enough, it keep a Fireblade at bay – and don’t that the ’Blade had a 150cc capacity advantage over Gixxer.

Kevin Schwantz: at the level I currently ride, I can get what I need out of a GSX-R 750 and I think I can do that on a 1000.

Schwantz speaks about the GSX-R:

The GSX-R750 was introduced in and as I was under contract by Suzuki, I was one of the to ride the GSX-R at a professional I rode for Yoshimura Suzuki 1986-1988 and during that rode the current year The 1986 GSX-R750 handled but the problem was getting power and at the same time.

It was an awesome bike to ride, I didn’t win any races.

The 1987 bike will always be my It was so reliable, I don’t even breaking in a race. The bike was and actually quite nervous, I feel like got me ready for a GP because it was styled in that

Every time I got on it, I felt I could win.

The 1988 was a completely redesigned look – smaller bodywork and therefore a sleeker-faster-smaller motorcycle that was blue and white. Handling-wise, the was good, though we struggled top speed development.

Today, at the level I currently I can still get what I need out of a 750 and I don’t think I can do that on a I am able to ride at a pace allows me to slide the thing and have lots of fun! If I a GSX-R 1000, I’ve got to be on my much better and nowadays I ride for fun.

However, is no doubt a GSX-R 1000 is in the right hands!
