Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Though the model debuted in 1985, Suzuki’s legendary Gixxer line did not make its way to the US until 1986. The changes were minor – better headlights, a revised belly pan, and 25mm longer swingarm, but Americans were probably too busy drooling over the first true street-legal race replica sold in this market to notice.

Those aren’t just our words – Suzuki specifically marketed the Gixxer as a “racebike for the street” and backed it up with a design that featured a 749cc inline-four motor fed by 31mm Mikuni carbs and Suzuki’s Twin Swirl Combustion Chamber with 16 valve heads. It put down 80 horsepower at the rear wheel (106 at the crank) through a six-speed transmission, and impressively the engine weighed 30 pounds less than the previous GS750 motor (even though that was air-cooled).

Weight savings were not just limited to the motor. The whole bike weighed just 388 pounds dry, which was a revelation at the time. The GSX-R750 inspired copycats from the other Japanese manufacturers and impressively, it’s still in production today (though it hasn’t seen significant changes since 2011).

This example is VIN: JS1GR75AXG2105278, engine #: R705124501. The seller is the original owner; he purchased the bike new.

The odometer shows 26,348 miles.

Maintenance:
The seller states that he “worked as a shop technician from 1973-1989.” Accordingly, he has performed routine maintenance throughout his ownership and “always run the bike dry” prior to storage. He recently had the carbs rebuilt and notes that “all of the fluids are up to date.”

Modifications:
Corbin seat.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Avon AV55 tires with date codes of 3909 and 0811.

The sale includes two keys, a spare ignition module, as well as a pair of master cylinder rebuild kits.

The sale also includes the original owner’s manual and seat.

The sale does NOT include the pictured stand.
