1985—1987

I have tried to tell the Suzuki GSX-R 750 model history on this page as I know it. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

The GSX-R750 was built to compete in the various worldwide championships as well as to be used on the street. It is considered as one the very first street-legal racers, there had been a number of sports machines but the GSX-R750 was something else. It was a revolutionary motorcycle with specifications like over 100 hp power output, less than 180 kg dry mass, 55° leaning angle, lightweight alloy double-cradle perimeter frame, 18-inch wheels and streamlined design based on the factory Formula 1 and Endurance racers.

The air/oil-cooled motor had cylinder dimensions of 70,0 x 48,7 mm and had 29 mm flat slide carbs. In a racing trim (there was a tuning kit available for competitive racing) the GSX-R750 engine provided 130 bhp. The new high-tech engine was narrower than earlier inline-fours and materials like magnesium was used to keep the weight down to minimum.

The GSX-R750 was basically a street-legal and detuned version of the works GS1000R racer. The flat slide carburetors gave faster response to the throttle compared to the vacuum carburetors. It also required the rider to be more gently with the throttle. There were no compromises, it was very quick in hands of a skillful rider but could be experienced as nervous and even dangerous.

That is certainly the case in old and abused machines. The components of the bike are all high quality but make sure that the tyres, suspension and bearings are all in good condition or the bike can scare the living daylight out of you! The GSX-R750 engine is considered as reliable but we all know that there is no such thing as bulletproof engines. The frame of the early models is not that rigid and bend easily when dropped.

The GSX-R750 entered the market in March 1985. There's not many bikes out there in mint condition, most of them are ridden very hard and seen their best days. Nevertheless the evolution of modern sports bikes started with the GSX-R750. It's a real classic. Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (9)

With the 1983 RG250 Gamma, Suzuki was the first factory to deliver a true racer replica using race-bred technology to the public. The next step was to build a 4-stroke 400cc machine for the Japanese home market and a year later a 750cc machine, culmination to the Suzuki's racing experiences in the World Endurance, AMA Superbike and Championship. The GSX-R750 was first presented at the 1984 IFMA Cologne Show in West Germany. Although it was fully street legal, it was clear that it was built even to compete in the various Worldwide Championships.

The GSX-R750F entered the market in March 1985. It was considered as the first production motorcycle to offer race-bred technology and performance at an affordable price. The design philosophy centered mainly on weight reduction. Suzuki went counter to the conventional design by developing SACS (Suzuki advanced cooling system) whereby the cylinder head and the pistons are oil cooled via the engine oil injection, achieving cooling efficiency as good as water-cooling without its weight increase. The computer designed engine package was 10% lighter than the water-cooled versions.

The GSX-R750 also featured the new TSCC (twin swirl combustion chamber) cylinder head, DAIS (direct air intake system , flat side carburetors, six-speed gearbox and hydraulic clutch engaged the power. The chassis featured the finest multi-rib extrusion molded aluminum box section piping and cold-cast aluminum alloy components, MR-ALBOX frame, that weighted 8,1 kg less than half of the conventional steel frames. These and other weight reduction measures gave the bike sensationally low dry weight of 179 kg, 20% lower than the competing 750s, resulting a superior power-to-weight ratio for much easier power control and quicker handling. Completing the GSX-R750 design was the endurance racer theme: dual headlights on the aerodynamics full fairing and 18-inch tyres both front and rear.

As you can see from the pictures below (and the one above), there were variations of the graphics and coloring. The one with the white lower part of the fairing and black rear mirrors is a Japanese home market model, the one with the blue rear mirrors in a USA model. The bike in the picture above has black rear mirrors.

Trying to make the bike less nervous, the standard 1986 model received 25 mm longer swing arm and standard radial tyres like the previous limited version GSX-R750R (Racing) model. Part from that, the model remained basically unchanged from 1985 except for a modified lower fairing. The distinct dual headlights were upgraded to 65/50 watts.

The street-legal limited version Suzuki GSX-R750R model was introduced for 1986. The basic specifications of the bike were the same as for the standard model (except for the seat height) but the the ”double R” model offered some interesting goodies that improved an already great bike. The gun-coat engine finish, gold-plated chain, blue-coated wheels and two sets of racing numbers is not all. The 1986 GSX-R750R offered even a new electrically activated front suspension system (NEAS), 310 mm floating front brake discs, steering damper, racing type adjustable clutch-lever, dry clutch, single racing seat, remote rear damper reservoir, amber halogen head lights and more.

A 500 unit limited edition of the GSX-R750R was launched on Japanese home market in 1986. The GSX-R750R was offered in red/black with white lettering and a ”Tsujimoto” name tag. Satoshi Tsujimoto was an all Japan Superbike Champion. Like the export version, it had goodies like steering damper, dry clutch and radial tires.

As customary in Japan, the model was power restricted to 75 ps (74 hp) as all large motorcycles in Japan at the time. The retail price was 1 050 000 Yen.

The production model gained the previous years limited GSX-R750R's exclusive features; stronger 41 mm diameter lightweight front forks with improved PDF (positive damping front fork) adjustability and the brake lever actuated electronic NEAS, stabilized with a steering damper. Biggest failing of these early F/G/H models was the steel-bodied rear shock which quickly overheated and faded. Larger (21 liter) fuel tank.

All the larger motorcycles made for the Japanese home market are power restricted.
Prior to 1993 the maximum horsepower were the following:
Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (99) 250cc class: 45hp
Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (100) 400cc class: 59 hp
Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (101) 750cc class: 77 hp
Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (102) over 750cc: not allowed

The new limits for the models built in 1993 and after, were:
Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (103) 250cc class: 40hp
Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (104) 400cc class: 53 hp
Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (105) 750cc class: 77 hp
Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985-1987 (106) over 750cc: allowed, but restricted to 100 hp.

Bikes with more powerful engines are and were made for export only. However, if a Japanese private person wants to buy an unrestricted bike, they are allowed to import it from another country by themselves for private use...

Suzuki GSX-R 750 Model History 1985-1987

The Suzuki GSX-R750 was a revolutionary motorcycle that was built to compete in worldwide championships while also being street-legal. It is considered one of the first street-legal racers, with specifications that set it apart from other sports machines of its time.

Key Features:

  • Power Output: The GSX-R750 had an impressive power output of over 100 hp, which was significant for a motorcycle of its time.
  • Lightweight Design: With a dry mass of less than 180 kg, the GSX-R750 was designed to be lightweight and agile.
  • Leaning Angle: The bike had a leaning angle of 55 degrees, which allowed for better cornering capabilities.
  • Frame: It featured a lightweight alloy double-cradle perimeter frame, inspired by Formula 1 and Endurance racers.
  • Wheels: The GSX-R750 had 18-inch wheels, which contributed to its overall performance and handling.

  • In racing trim, the engine could provide up to 130 bhp, and there was a tuning kit available for competitive racing.

Performance and Handling:
