Suzuki GSR750 first ride: "It's dead easy to ride"

MCN Senior Road Tester Adam Child is currently testing Suzuki’s all-new GSR750 roadster near Seville in southern Spain. This is what he has to say so far: “First impressions are good. The styling is really nice, the engine’s based on the old 2005 GSX-R750K5 but retuned to give more bottom end and midrange and it’s pretty light, too – only 2kg...

Too much!

I tend to agree, I know prices have gone through the roof for jap bikes but 7k being considered cheap for this sort of bike is bonkers. A couple of years ago you could've picked one up for 5500 or 6 max.

What's more daft is that the Gladius is about £5700 on the road and I can't believe there's much difference between them in terms of quality and cost etc.

Suzuki should've put this up at £6495 OTR absolute max and I personally reckon you'll be able to get them for that or less in within 6 months and/or with loads of after market extras "free" to sweeten the deal. 

It's got potential but it's on thin ice at that price. The kwak looks better for about the same price, the Triumph Street Triple and even the R isn't too far away and while the FZ 8's stupidly expensive it's probably a better bike on almost every level I'd imagine.

LOL

 

 

I kept reading GSXR 750 LOL thought thats not to bad, then realised it was errrrrrrrrrrr lets say not a gixxer

Owell a Ducati for me next,  the Jap is not as diserable espacially at the silly money they are asking nowdays.

Id have a gixxer 750 at 7.5k but not the 10k or somthing they are asking, silly money for what you get.

Seriously why the interest in naked bikes when its regularly going down to freezing in the morning and when it isn't its raining very hard...

SPAM

I see the SPAM Monkeys are at it again in the forums. Is there anything you can do about it MCN? Sorry to moan but it's just annoying. I like the look of the GSR750. I'd never be able to afford a brand new one but I think it's a nice progression from the GSR600.

Fazer 8?

I suspect a fairing is all it needs to stick two fingers up at the Fazer 8.

With a fairing I might even consider it over a cbr600f?....

You have pointed out the downsides of owning a naked bike but you obviously dont understand the appeal of naked bikes. It's a much different experience to riding a faired bike, your even more out in the open, more out in the elements you can actually feel the wind, the sensation is still there, where 120mph still actually feels fast, it's a purer motorcycling experience in my opinion. Besides since when are motorbikes supposed to be extremely practical, that's what cars are for, bikes for most people aren't purely transportation, otherwise we'd all be riding round on honda deauvilles
