Suzuki rewrote the 750-class rulebook when it launched the GSX-R750 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 until recently the sole surviving Japanese 750cc sports bike, the GSX-R750 has been a huge commercial success for Suzuki and enjoys cult status today. Now more than 30 years old, many early GSX-Rs have suffered at the hands of successive owners, a state of affairs that has resulted in original examples of the first version, such as that offered here, becoming increasingly sought after by collectors. Displaying a total of 44,954 miles on the odometer, this early GSX-R750 was sold new by Heron Suzuki GB and comes with the original bill of sale. The vendor describes the machine as in good condition throughout, benefiting from new front brake pistons; ultrasonically cleaned carburettors; and repainted top fairing. Although started earlier this year, the Suzuki has not been used for some 9-10 years and will require re-commissioning before further use. Representing a rare opportunity to acquire a fine example of Suzuki's iconic 'Gixxer', the machine comes with a handbook; two keys; and a V5C document.
