Real slick ride. The 2006 Suzuki GSX-R750 had some mass centralisation work which helped make the rider feel like the bike had shrunk to a 600cc sized sportster basically. The suspension is highly accomplished on all surfaces and compared to Suzuki GSX-R750s from a few years ago the brakes are in another dimension. In a word, the GSX-R750's handling is adroit.
Making a smooth, user-friendly stream of power, which builds up to a howling 12K redline, the Suzuki GSX-R750 motor is just about perfect, backed up by a very sweet fuel injection system.
Precise close ratio gearbox too and clutch-free changes can be accomplished easily once you're rolling on the GSX-R750. With a pedigree stretching back a decade you can be sure the engine will prove reliable too.
The Suzuki GSX-R750 looks beautiful when new, but all that matt black paint is likely to look a bit scuzzy if you're crackers enough to ride the thing in winter at all.
Like most modern sportsbikes, there's virtually no mudguards to speak of on the Suzuki GSX-R750, so crud will be flung over the engine, downpipes and all around the rear end - talking of which, the swingarm looks welded up by Bender, the robot from Futurama.
For the amazing riding experience it delivers, you have to give the Suzuki GSX-R750 full marks. It comprehensively demolishes 600s on track, and if the rider is any good, you'll be claiming a few 1000cc scalps too.
It does all you can expect and more, plus it looks a million times slicker, more rakishly sexy, than the Suzuki GSX-R750s of just a few years back.

The Suzuki GSX-R750 is a good looking bike, especially in traditional Suzuki blue/white, but like most GSX-R's the bike only has what it needs to go fast on it, and little else.
The GSX-R750's combo mirror/indicators look cool, but tend to wobble a bit, thus blurring the view and the stubby `MotoGP' exhaust merely disguises a huge, pig ugly catalyser - which probably robs the bike of 10bhp. Pillion pegs are a bit laughable on this Suzuki GSX-R750, as is the pillion pad.
