When Honda released the CB750, other Japanese manufacturers had no other choice but to respond. Kawasaki made the choice to develop a little bit more power than the CB750 with the Z1, but Suzuki chose to stay with their specialty of two-strokes and in 1972 they released the GT750.

The prototype Suzuki GT750 was shown at the 17th Tokyo Motor Show in October of 1970 and launched in Japan in September 1971 as a sports tourer. Developed from the Suzuki T500 with an extra cylinder and liquid cooling, it was marketed as the Le Mans in the US and Canada. Looking at the success of the 4-cylinder 4-stroke engine, it was actually pretty bold from Suzuki to keep their 2-stroke engine. But the major innovation Suzuki added to their machine was liquid cooling, which lent itself to the international nickname of “Water Buffalo”. Indeed, the GT750 was the first mass production bike from Japan that featured it.

This example (VIN: GT75047910, Engine #: GT75052031) is part of the estate sale that you’ve probably seen us mention on Instagram, which also included some cool offerings such as:
1988 Yamaha TZ250
1986 Honda NS400R
Yamaha Champ CJ50RS

This Water Buffalo has been sitting for several years, so the seller is letting it go with no reserve! The odometer shows 45,830 miles.

It is currently located at our shop in Marina del Rey, California for anyone that wants to take a look up close. It is offered on a clean California title.

There’s not much else we can share about this one – Adam says it’ll make for a great winter project as she’s a neat bike that’s very original. If you’d rather have someone else do the work to bring it back to life, our White Glove service would be glad to help. Either way, this is offered with no reserve so it’s guaranteed to find a new home – good luck!
