If you ride it slowly the Suzuki GSX750 makes a decent commuter/all rounder, but the suspension is too soft and the front end dives during hard braking. To be fair, the Suzuki GSX750 is as good as many late 90s roadster bikes like the Zephyr, Honda CB750 etc but a Fazer 600 feels like an R1 by comparison.
Based on the old GSXR750 from the 80s, the Suzuki GSX750 motor is in a softer state of tune, with smaller carbs, but still has enough poke to get you on to the naughty side of 120mph. Ultimately it doesn't feel much faster than the Bandit 600, which is one reason why the Suzuki GSX750 never proved a strong seller.
There's no question over the motor, but like the Bandits or GSX750F model, the Suzuki GSX750 roadster can suffer from a patchy finish, which leads to it looking shabby. The Suzuki GSX750's downpipes and their linking sections are especially vulnerable to rust.
The Suzuki GSX750 is a bit of an oddball, many people mistake it for a Bandit. But when there are so many 600 Bandits around secondhand, offering very similar performance to this model for less money, it starts to get difficult to find a reason to buy a Suzuki GSX750, as pleasant as it is to ride.
