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.

Manufactured in December of 1995, this example is VIN: JS1GR7DA1T2102541. The seller is the original owner – he purchased it from Los Angeles Triumph Suzuki (now LA Cyclesports) in Inglewood, California.

The odometer shows 29,417 miles.

The seller states that there are no known mechanical issues. In preparation for the listing, the seller had Steve the Professor clean and sync the carbs, clean and line the fuel tank, install a new YTX9-BS battery, rebuild the fuel pump, change the oil/filter, flush the brake fluid, service the chain, install new spark plugs, detail the bike, and install new Michelin 2CT tires.

Steve notes that the bike does not have mirrors and it is missing the left bar end.
