Suzuki GSR750 gets ABS

The new Suzuki GSR750 is now available with antilock brakes for the first time since the bike was launched last year. The GSR750 was well received when it was introduced last year and even won a prestigious MCN Award for its class. The bike will make its UK show debut at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show at Excel which...

Big deal

So it gets ABS, big <bleep> deal.

Next up a properly routed exhaust pipe, shaft drive, a decent comfortable seat, a centrestand, simple swingarm and twin shocks and a five gallon fuel tank.

Oh, nearly forgot... peak torque at 3000 rpm, hydraulic valve adjusters, 80+mpg and 10.000 mile service intervals.

Guess I'll just have to keep dreaming....

Upgrades

Got my GSR750 is Sept ‘11, loving it more every passing day… I must say, even though according to MCN ‘The GSR750 has proven to be an extremely popular machine both in the UK and mainland Europe’ I have not seen many others on the road… which is great, I prefer it that way!

I wonder if I could get ABS fitted on to the bike, I certainly hope so. I would have gone for the model that has ABS if it was available then.

You certainly won't be able to retrofit ABS to your bike sadly. It might be worth having a chat with some Suzuki dealers to see what they would offer you to swop for an ABS equipped model though. There are some great Suzuki deals on at the moment and you might be surprised what they offer to do for you.

rlf3 - I think you might be looking for a slightly different sort of motorcycle than a fun, naked middleweight! One that doesn't exist for a start.

And the GSR750 getting ABS may not be the biggest news in motorcycling but it is news; something MCN has a responsibility to report because there are plenty of people who do want to read stories like this.

Sorry Andy, wasn't a dig at MCN but a comment regarding the sad fact that there are very very few decent road motorbikes getting built these days.

Maybe I'm just a sad old fart, I prefer to think that I have gained wisdom through decades of experience.

I think you'll find BMW have bikes that will meet most of your criteria. Not sure why you'd want twin shocks though.

. . . A good deal from Suzuki??

I dunno about that one, Andy.  Don't go to Sturdey's in Tonbridge anyway.  They wanted to really take the pants down of a loyal returning customer there looking to buy yet another brand new suzuki.  Got offered a grand more for my Gixxer and rode out of P&H at Gatwick on a very low mileage, minty gem of a CB1000R.  I don't know about you, but the CB1000R is a hell of a lot more hoss per buck than the GSR, although I do agree it's a handsome bit of kit.  But I worked it out that I was at least £2000 better off and got combined ABS etc etc on a quality bike.

Shop around chaps!   Go to P&H and talk to Ray Gibbs.  You wont regret it.  =o)

Danny.

BMW? (Kymco)

Nope, BMW do not currently build anything which meets most of my criteria, no-one does.

BMW's range has nothing which would tempt me into a showroom to look at.

Reason for twin shocks is simplicity of maintenance/replacement.
