Suzuki rewrote the 750-class rulebook when it launched the GSX-R750 back in 1985. The 'Gixxer's development had been strongly influenced by lessons learned from the works TT F1 and Endurance racers; 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 until its recent deletion, the GSX-R750 has been a huge commercial success for Suzuki and enjoys cult status today. Offered here is an example of the totally redesigned SRAD version, which was first introduced in 1996. 'SRAD' stood for Suzuki Ram Air Direct, a reference to the pressurised induction system, but arguably the most striking feature of the new Gixxer was its aluminium beam frame, which was based on that of the RGV500 Grand Prix bike. Finished in the livery of the Suzuki works team's one-time sponsor Lucky Strike, this example has been signed by Suzuki's 1993 MotoGP World Champion Kevin Schwantz, who first came to prominence racing a Yoshimura GSX-R750 (photographs on file). The current vendor, its third owner, acquired the machine in 2002. Last run earlier this year, it is described by him as in good condition and offered with old V5/V5C documents and two expired MoTs.
