Suzuki GSX S 750

This bike is now listed on the Suzuki US website. It is good to have a mid displacement standard from Suzuki available again for the US. In black or special edition blue and white.

well I didn't see that one coming. I think a 750 is about the perfect size though. All the performance 99% of us will evern want or need, yet still decent on gas and insurance.

Good move Suzuki!

Heavy at 470lbs. FZ-09 still dominates this class.

I think it's a good move, the more middle-weight naked bikes the better, imo. Plus I'm glad to see that fantastic motor in more applications. But does anyone find the gap between the motor and the frame kind of weird, though?

3/4 liter is my absolute sweet spot, but I'd still opt for the GSX-R in the same size.

How the hell can it weigh that much? That's around the same weight as my FZ1.

Saweet! When can I demo one??

If it was a HP Vtwin 750 I would be down a left nut to get one. They should make an 1200 Vtwin also in the same style.

AIM expo, need to go!

$8149.00 is much better than $15k for a S1000R!

EDIT:
http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bike...zuki-gsx-s750/

463 lbs Curb mass (wet, 4.7 gals included, methinks)


Yammerhammer FZ-09 is 414 wet (3.7 gals). Very impressive!

Apparently the liter version weighs less than the GSX-R1000 (448 lbs), but the budget-spec 750 uses cheaper/heavier components, and no ABS. Source: http://www.sportrider.com/sportbikes...750-first-look

I would rather have the 750, with higher-spec components and less weight for more money. I guess in N America, size really does matter.

Dang, I'm going to have a tough time resisting a naked Gixxer 750. Hope they botched something that is a deal killer for my wallets sake.

No ABS and heavy eh?



The Z model is just a fancy paint job...

Still would really like a test ride for sure! Great job on the styling. My favorite nOOb bike for the season. Pop in some GIxxer cams and go!
