Less than a year after the initial release of the GSX-R, Suzuki unveiled an even more hardcore version of the watershed model with the GSX-R750 Limited Edition. Just 500 units were built worldwide, with 350 going to the United States, Canada, and Europe, and the remaining 150 going to Japan. Of those 350, 199 examples went to the United States in order to qualify the model for AMA Superbike competition. At approximately two grand more than the base GSX-R750, the LE carried an MSRP of $6,499, making it the most expensive Japanese sportbike offering upon its release.

Separating the LE from the standard 750 was a revised suspension setup using GSX-R1100-spec 41mm forks equipped with Suzuki’s NEAS (New Electronically-Activated Suspension, basically a brake-activated solenoid that stiffened up the damping to prevent front-end dive under braking), and an aluminum-bodied remote reservoir monoshock with an aluminum full floater linkage. Stopping power was bolstered via full-floating 310mm rotors and dual-opposed piston calipers. The swingarm on the LE was also stretched by an inch (25mm) for improved stability and a steering damper was added as a standard item.

Quite possibly the biggest highlight on the new model was its super trick dry clutch, which was married to a close-ratio six-speed gearbox. Replacing the base model’s wet-plate setup, the new dry clutch came paired with an adjustable clutch lever.

The Limited Edition models were also distinguished from the standard version via its special race-inspired livery. Instead of the base model’s white and blue or black and red colors, the LE featured a red, white, and blue scheme complete with “LIMITED EDITION” graphics on the tail. The wheels were also adorned in a matching blue, the chain was gold-plated, and the engine received a special “gun-coat” finish.

Manufactured in March of 1986, this example is VIN: JS1GR75A2G2107042. Per the seller, “the bike was purchased from Pennsylvania in 2017 with 11,000 miles on it and has been in Ohio to date. The bike has been ridden on a regular basis on Non-Ethanol fuel, this bike runs and rides as it should.”

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 2,500 miles. The odometer shows 12,645 miles.

The seller reports that he has replaced the battery, performed an oil change, and adjusted the chain. Additionally, he notes that “the upper fairing stress cracks have been repaired from the inside glued and re-enforced, not repainted.”

The seller states that the paint, wheels, chain, windscreen, and mirrors are original.

Per the seller, the lowers have been repainted to match the blue of the tailpiece with a reproduction decal sourced from the UK.
