The sportsbike community falls. it seem, into three The very bravest of you will, now, be girding your and preparing to do battle with the beast that is a 1000cc The purest at heart will be your ankle exercises in of the forthcoming workout you’ll be dancing up and down your gearbox.

And the smartest of you all will be awaiting the delivery of your new

As seems to be the norm these there is virtually no difference in between the 2004 GSX-R 750 and its brother. Indeed, peel the off and even the cognoscenti would be to tell the difference. Both the latest in radial calipers on which later) bolted to looking upside down Both have stacked and a new LED tail light, and both classy black frames very meaty swingarms.

In the only visible difference is the which redlines at a pedestrian on the 750 as opposed to the frenetic 15,500rpm of the

So it may come as some surprise to that these two outwardly identical bikes give a different riding experience. As as you press the button the 750 seems more purposeful. Despite the exhaust can with its inbuilt there is a pleasing edge to the

Induction roar is more too, and a brief blip on the reveals the same hard bark that the previous 750 Now bearing in mind that bike is a dealer demonstrator and had five miles on the clock I collected it, the motor still eagerly and promised lots of fun a few miles loosening up.

It goes saying that a 750 will rather more bottom end and than a 600, and this is no Despite the engine modifications, all point towards top end rush than flexibility, the new GSX-R is rideable, with plenty of throughout the available rev range just half the entire for the first running in period) and a strong hint of phenomenal just the other side of initial 7,000 rpm running in

By the end of the test we’d managed to enough miles to allow to hot up a bit and things got very interesting Although still way short of fully run in, this is a very bike indeed. And not just at the top end although power does very distinctly as things turning quicker.

But what makes the GSX-R 750 so is the ability to ride unfamiliar fast and safely without to be totally committed. The handling is sublime, allowing high speeds with lots of for adjustment, while the flexible keeps things moving at a merry pace. The real ace in the though, is the brakes.

Quite these are the best brakes I ever encountered on a roadbike. offer tremendous stopping but are incredibly sensitive at the same Despite being apparently the as the 600, they are an order of better. And the 600 is pretty damn’ in itself.

To put it into perspective, in the rain I was treated with afternoon someone decided to their 4×4 across a in front of me. I found myself an emergency stop in a puddle an inch deep. No fuss, no just enough feel to exactly how much grip I had much) and how much braking in (loads).

The Bridgestone 014 tyres obviously their part as well, but the are truly confidence inspiring.

the fantastic brakes are a result of subtle suspension tweaks, the 750 feels more planted the 600 and seems to turn in better, if you’ve gone into a a little hot and are having to brake than usual. Now at road that won’t mean but on the track it should translate to bike being the one to beat year. In fact I’ll a bet, here and now.

wager that at trackdays up and the land, the ‘fast boys’ on litre bikes will be in the pits scratching their and wondering why they can’t lap as as this 750. Not only it be pretty nearly as quick on the a half decent rider be at least as quick round the will be on the brakes later in and on the throttle earlier coming

There isn’t a great to say about the ergonomics of the bike, having reviewed the 600 just a of weeks ago. It’s enough to ride all day, the works well enough to the worst of the rain off (and the rails get warm enough to get feeling back into fingers as well) and the mirrors, hardly panoramic, are at least to see what’s coming up. As is usually the with Suzukis, the gearbox is as as you like, the lights are fine and the is present but not exactly inspirational.

always felt that one of the that separates the great the merely very good, at as far as bikes are concerned, is the ease which you can ride under all Some bikes are fantastic on sports bikes, some are tourers while others are all rounders that really excel at anything. But the GSX-R 750 is a bike to just ride.

It better and better as I started to harder, relying on corner and midrange rather than the upper zone of the tacho. But at the time it felt wonderful back and bimbling through the looking for good photo And when the heavens broke and it snowed and dumped torrential, rain on me then the GSX-R a surprisingly capable motorway

It’s a great bike.

have always been the of choice for the discerning hooligan. a genuine track heritage, the 750 in particular is renowned as a bit of a headbanger. And so, too – there is something about the of the bike that makes you try a little harder, makes you a little deeper and get on the power a earlier.

It may not make you Kevin but it gives you just a bit of his attitude. Now 750s have been on the racing scene, Suzuki are the company who have persisted a sports 750. And they say always will, claiming the GSX-R 750 is almost a brand in

Which is all well and good, that they don’t end up a shallow caricature of the original – brand and image over and performance – but carry on making the what it should be. A proper

If this incarnation is anything to go by, feel the same way. The GSX-R so far? You better it.

Thanks to Premier Suzuki in Wickham — 020 8777 — for the loan of their You really ought to give a call, book a test and bring your wallet. if you try it, you’ll buy it.
