Lot Details
1985 Suzuki GSX-R750
Frame no. GR75A-110974
Engine no. R705-101208
Suzuki rewrote the 750-class rulebook when it launched the GSX-R750 on an unsuspecting world back in 1985. The 'Gixxer's development had been heavily influenced by lessons learned from the works TT F1 and Endurance racers of the late 1970s and early 1980s; lighter than a 600 and as powerful as a 1000, it made all other super-sports 750s seem flabby and slow. One of the modern era's few instant classics and the sole surviving Japanese 750cc sports bike, the GSX-R750 has been a huge commercial success for Suzuki and enjoys cult status today. The GSX-R750 was and is a superb machine and an excellent example of Japanese motorcycle engineering at its most refined. Presented here is the earliest version of the legendary Suzuki GSX-R750 family, the increasing desirability of which has seen values climb steadily in recent years. The machine has been fitted with a non-standard silencer and tinted screen, and we are advised that the hydraulic clutch needs attention. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine is offered with copies of Dutch registration documents. A total of 79,173 kilometres (approximately 49,000 miles) is currently displayed on the odometer.
