Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

A year after Suzuki changed the sportbike game with the GSX-R750 in 1985, they rolled out the big brother GSX-R1100. The press and the public ate it up, but that didn’t stop Suzuki from making changes every single year. 1991 brought mechanical upgrades in the form of larger carbs, but the most obvious changes were a series of significant cosmetic changes – the bodywork was restyled and the headlights were covered.

Basic specifications of the ’91 model were 145 horsepower and 497 pounds – heavy nowadays but a featherweight when it was released. A Modern Classic review on Bennetts describes the 1100 Gixxer by saying, “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.”

This example is VIN: GU75A100625, engine #: U70710270. It came to Iconic as an import from Japan; prior history is not known.


The odometer shows 11,301 kilometers (7,022 miles).

Maintenance:
In preparation for the listing, the seller had us clean and sync the carbs, replace the float bowl, float valve, and float assembly o-rings, replace the spark plugs, replace the fuel petcock, replace the battery, and change the oil and oil filter. We also serviced the chain and installed new Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tires with date codes of 1422 and 2022.
