Suzuki to restore GSX-R750 at Motorcycle Live

1 of 3

Suzuki will be demonstrating the range of the parts available in the Vintage Parts Programme by restoring an original Suzuki GSX-R750 on the firm’s stand over the course of the show.

The bike will be restored as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations of the sportsbike range which will also see a display of some of the classic GSX-Rs from over the years, Suzuki will be stripping the bike down and rebuilding it with refurbished and new components, restoring the machine to its former glory.

The restoration of this bike will also be part of the launch of the all-new and technologically advanced new GSX-R1000 which MCN understands from Japanese sources will be launched at the Milan show and then later shown at Motorcycle Live at the NEC from November 28.

Tim Davies, Suzuki GB's Aftersales Marketing Co-ordinator for parts, said, "I really don't think there's a bigger icon in motorcycling than the original GSX-R750. It's responsible for 30 years of sportsbikes as we know them today and also the popularity of the GSX-R brand. With plenty of celebrations planned around the anniversary at Motorcycle Live, we're really looking forward to the project and hope that everyone that comes to the show is just as excited as we are to see it come together."

GSX-R owners also have the chance to get involved with Suzuki's celebrations at Motorcycle Live, with three spaces available on the GSX-R display up for grabs.

To enter owners simply need to upload a photo of their bike to the GSX-R competion page.

Suzuki can be found on stand 4D20 when Motorcycle Live opens its doors on Saturday 28 November, 2015.
