2011 Suzuki GSX-R750
The 750’s rolling chassis and bodywork is completely new, but it doesn’t get the GSX-R600’s radical engine overhaul and the resulting 1kg extra weight reduction. Aside from minor revisions to make it breath more easily, the 750’s motor is essentially the same as before, but it now promises to spin up faster and make more low and midrange power. Suzuki claims it’s 10% more fuel efficient too.
It still has the perfect mix of power and handling, but thanks to the lighter weight, acceleration is now more towards a superbike than a 600. It doesn’t have the new close-ratio gearbox fitted in the 600, so feels longer-legged in the higher gears on track, but will it will make for a less frantic machine on the road.
It’s fun, fast and handles beautifully, but crucially it’s very easy to ride fast, unlike a bigger sportsbike. Pound-for-pound we reckon it’s one of the best sportsbikes you can buy.
