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, 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.

Two years later, Suzuki released another significant model update in ’98. That year the Gixxer 750 got new cams, lightened internals, a larger air-box with an electronic flapper valve, CDI ignition coils, revised gearbox ratios, and the biggest change for that year: the addition of electronic fuel injection and 46mm throttle bodies with one injector per cylinder. A steering damper also became a standard amenity and a handful of new graphics packages were introduced.

The changes resulted in the GSX-R’s now-fuel-injected liquid-cooled, 749cc, DOHC, 16V, inline-four engine to produce 60.5 ft-lbs of torque at 10,300rpm and 134hp at 12,000rpm, (1,500rpm short of red-line). Tipping the scales at just 394 lbs dry — almost 75 lbs lighter than Kawasaki’s ZX-7R — the ’98 Gixxer could fire off standing quarter-mile runs in under 11 seconds and reach a top speed of around 165mph.

The seller of this SRAD (VIN: JS1GR7DAXW2102848) acquired it eight months ago from Iconic Motorbikes.

During that time he has covered 2 miles with it. The odometer shows 12,189 miles.

It is almost 100% stock – the sole upgrade is a Yoshimura RS-3 muffler.

Recent maintenance includes a fork service with new seals, the front brake calipers were stripped and cleaned, the swingarm and undertray were replaced with unscratched/uncut units, a new battery, and a new fuel pump seal. The seller also notes a oil/filter change and states that there are no mechanical issues.

There are several minor scratches throughout – the seller has included photos of all known cosmetic blemishes in the photo album up top.


The sale includes the owner’s manual and Suzuki Servicard.

Currently located in Gilroy, California, this GSX-R is offered on a clean California title with non-op registration through August of 2021.

The seller is letting this go as he is moving out of the country. Have any SRAD stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments below!
