In 1986, Suzuki set the new standard in the sport bike class with the release of the first GSX-R750. A decade later, however, and Suzuki’s competitors had caught up, and the once-mighty Gixxer started looking increasingly long in the tooth. So for the 1996 GSX-R750, Suzuki heavily revamped the model with 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. 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. While its improved 130.2hp output, revised chassis, and sleek new appearance were definitely of note, the biggest highlight of the updated model was undoubtedly its weight; a svelte 453 lbs fully fueled and ready-to-go. That not only made it 50 lbs lighter than the outgoing model but also placed it in the same ballpark as the 600 class while boasting more peak power than Honda’s CBR900RR.

This example is VIN: JS1GR7DB000502570. It came to Iconic as an import from Japan; prior history is not known.

The odometer shows 12,558 kilometers (7,803 miles).
