1989 Suzuki GSX-R750RK (Schuetze Collection)

SOLD FOR: $37,450

Out of stock

Sold on December 23, 2023


Please note: This is part of the Damon Schuetze collection.

Typically we ask sellers to include a starting video or allow us to include one when we list a motorbike to ensure the motor is good but the seller had all these bikes professionally prepped for storage and wants to keep them that way. He had the bikes inside his home so they are dry on fuel and ready to add into a collection or get running again (Iconic is happy to help with that). Iconic sold him this GSX-R750RK, the ZX-7RR and the 1986 Suzuki RB50 GAG so we have prior running videos of those in our archives but the rest came from other sources. Adam knows many of these bikes from seeing them in the past as he nearly bought the RC45 from Bob Weaver, remembers the OW01 at a live auction, and a couple of the others. They are from credible sources even before the seller acquired them and again, we’d love to get them prepped to ride again for the buyer if he/she elects to do so.

In the long line of Gixxers, the ’89 “RK” model is considered by some to be the most special of them all.

The RK was also known as the RR – no matter what you called it, it was rare. Just 500 were built for homologation purposes, none of which were officially sold in the US.

Suzuki lengthened the stroke of the motor to make it easier for race teams to tune, and there were extra goodies like a magnesium cylinder head cover, Mikuni BST-40 carb, close-ratio gearbox, stronger clutch with an additional plate, aluminum fuel tank, quick disconnect fiberglass bodywork, wider wheels, lower handlebars, repositioned footpegs, thinner seat, 43mm front fork with rebound and compression adjustment, and 310mm front disc brakes.

Rounding off the package was, in Suzuki’s words, a “chain with special gold-colored outer plates, creating an impressive gold line.”

This example is VIN: GR79B100117. Please note: It is titled as a 1990 model. Damon says, “I saw it when I was at Iconic inspecting the 1996 ZX-7RR N1 and made a deal on the spot. I sent the correct wheels and associated parts which are very clean and the airbox and some other miscellaneous parts with the bike. I searched for a pipe and couldn’t find one anywhere. The seller found this in a small service shop in Texas who imported it for racing purposes but the sponsor fell through and it sat around for years.”

The odometer shows 4,359 miles.
