Team Classic Suzuki to campaign GSX-R750 SRAD racer
Team Classic Suzuki have turned the clocks back to 1996 and introduced a gorgeous GSX-R750 SRAD racer, ready to compete in future international classic meetings.
The bike is based around a former factory endurance race bike and will replace the team’s XR69 F1 machines previously campaigned by the likes of Michael Dunlop, John Reynolds and even our very own Michael Neeves.

For those who aren’t aware of the GSX-R750 SRAD, it was the Suzuki’s flagship four-cylinder superbike from 1996 to 2000 and was campaigned on racetracks across the world by riders including Chris Walker and James Whitham.
Wrapped in a special livery inspired by Kevin Schwantz’s RGV500 GP racer, the bulky Team Classic SRAD features a close ratio six-speed gearbox, Yoshimura exhaust system, K-Tech suspension and Brembo brakes.
There’s also a longer swingarm for more stability and a pair of OZ lightweight wheels shod with Dunlop slicks. But it doesn’t stop there, with a dry slipper-clutch, lightweight generator, magnesium offset sump, and a close ratio six-speed gearbox also joining the party.
A number of parts have also been manufactured in house, including the triple clamps, footrests, fork lowers, and carbon kevlar bodywork.
To find out if all the hard graft has been worth it, the bike is set to undergo a two-day test at Cartagena with Michael Dunlop next week.
With road-going SRADs still littering bike meets up and down the country and manufacturers now starting to replicate iconic 80s models as ‘retros’, isn’t it time we had a new modern version, Suzuki?
