Suzuki has kicked off the 25th anniversary celebrations for the GSX-R at the NEC Show today.

The Japanese manufacturer has a handful of bikes on its stand tracing the sports bikes history from the introduction of the 750 in 1985 to the launch of the new 2010 anniversary special edition.

The UK only special edition will be unveiled this afternoon, so check back to the MCN website for a first look at the bike.

Suzuki plans to stage events throughout 2010 to mark the anniversary, but details of these have yet to be revealed.

In the meantime visitors to the show can learn about the history and check out some iconic bikes including a pristine 1986 GSX-R750 used by Kevin Schwantz to learn the Donnington track prior to the Transatlantic race.

There is also an immaculate 2001 GSX-R1000 and a 600 restored by Crooks Suzuki for the show.
