While the GSX-R750 debuted in 1985 for most countries, the US first got it and the bigger brother 1100 in 1986.

It was an instant classic – an aluminum box frame housed a 128 horsepower oil-cooled engine, and it looked the part thanks to the full bodywork. The dry weight was 433 pounds, an impressively low number for the time.

As Bennetts found in its review, “On the open road it was astonishing. Fast and torquey like nothing else I’d ridden, but nimble too, feeling like what I imagined a proper race bike would as it flicked from left to right on the smallest of rider inputs.”

Manufactured in May of 1986, this example is VIN: JS1GU74A8G2104291. The seller purchased this example two years ago.

The odometer shows 11,168 miles. The seller has put 10 miles on this example.

The seller states this motorcycle was professionally painted.
