The GSX-R750 screamed onto the world stage at Cologne in 1984 and its arrival stung like a slap around the face. While the other Japanese manufacturers developed well-mannered, well-rounded, water-cooled sport-touring bikes, Suzuki created a whole new style of motorcycle which blasted way beyond the super-sports boundaries. In March 1985 the era of the race-replica truly began, when the initial batch of GSX-R750 machines went on sale. The outrageously snappish two-stroke RG250 arrived in 1983 and set the stage for its extremist 750 sibling. Like the GSX-R that followed it, the RG was a racetrack-inspired roadbike which relied heavily upon racing technology. When Suzuki applied the same principles, low mass, high power, who needs luggage anyway, to its four-stroke equivalent, their engineering expertise led them away from the flavour-of-the-moment liquid-cooled engine. There's more than enough here about the first decade of the GSX-R750 for you to understand why it's still a world-beater today. This is a book of contemporary road & comparison tests, technical data, riders impressions, long term reports & new model intros.
