Description

In 1986, Suzuki set the new standard in the sport bike class with the release of the first GSX-R750. 35 years later the GSX-R750 is not only still in production, it is the only 750 supersport being sold new today, adding to its storied history as one of the most successful motorcycles of all time. The formula was simple: a larger and more powerful 750 cc engine shoehorned into a 600 cc class chassis offering light weight and excellent handling. Ten years after its introduction, time and the competition from other brands had caught up with Suzuki and the bike was due for a major refresh. So, for the 1996 GSX-R750, Suzuki heavily revamped the model, delivering a host of features – many of which were derived from the firm’s factory race bikes.

Starting with the frame, the engineers in Hamamatsu abandoned the aluminum double-cradle chassis for the first time since the introduction of the Gixxer, bestowing the 1996 version with a new twin-spar structure based on the RGV GP racer of the day. The new frame was paired with updated fully-adjustable suspension comprised of 43mm inverted Showa forks up front and a monoshock out back. Slowing the 750 was a set of six-piston Tokico calipers chomping down on 320mm discs. The new Gixxer’s power plant also underwent a complete redesign. The new engine featured a side cam chain, SCEM (Silicon Carbide Electro-Plate) cylinder, and the model’s namesake SRAD (Suzuki Ram Air Direct) induction system and electronically-controlled 39mm BDSR carbs. The most compact and lightweight inline-four in its class, the redesigned engine was able to shirk a good deal of weight via the use of new magnesium cylinder head, starter motor, and clutch covers. On top of the new engine and frame, the ’96 GSX-R also got all-new wind-tunnel-developed bodywork inspired by Kevin Schwantz’s RG500 GP mount.

This example is VIN: JS1GR7DA000501435, engine #: R726103579. It came to Iconic as an import from the UK.
