Suzuki rewrote the 750-class rulebook when it launched the GSX-R750 on an unsuspecting world back in 1985. Lighter than a 600 and as powerful as a 1,000, it made all other super-sports 750s seem flabby and slow. When the 1,100cc version arrived for 1986, it similarly eclipsed every other big-bore sports bike. 'The acceleration is awesome – like being charged in the back by a rugby scrum,' enthused Bike magazine's tester, attempting to sum up the experience of riding a bike weighing a relatively svelte 450lbs that produced 127bhp and could top 150mph with ease. This un-restored example has had only two owners prior to the current vendor and has always been maintained by an official Suzuki dealer. Currently displaying a total of 36,063 kilometres (approximately 22,300 miles) on the odometer, the machine is described as in generally excellent condition both cosmetically and mechanically. It is offered with Netherlands registration papers and a quantity of maintenance invoices.
