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 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 really been changed since 2011).

The seller of this example (VIN: JS1GR75A3G2104957) says that it has the “original factory paint in exceptional condition.” He says it is “near museum quality and would make an amazing display bike or bike night cruiser.”

The odometer shows 4,620 miles (photo is a couple of weeks old). The seller acquired it from the original owner two years ago and has put 150 miles on it since.

Per the seller, “All of the body panels are in excellent condition. There are no cracks or nicks anywhere the bodywork is in near perfect condition. The wheels are also in excellent condition with perfect paint and no major chips anywhere.”

The engine paint still has the original factory shine with out any major paint chips. Even the windscreen is original and in great condition. Basically the motorcycle is a 9.5 out of 10 cosmetically.”

Mechanically, “the bike runs and rides perfect, and shifts smoothly through all gears, there are no oil leaks anywhere. The carburetor was recently ultrasonically cleaned and adjusted, and a full service tune-up was performed which included new spark plugs, air filter, brake pads, oil change, and all fluids flushed. All of the lighting, switches and electrical components work as they should.”

Many first-generation Gixxers ended up on racetracks, abused on streets, or in pieces. This is a beautiful example of a first-year model that presents well and runs as it should, and we’re excited to offer it.
