The 2011 Suzuki GSR750 is being previewed by this official sketch ahead of October’s Intermot Cologne
motorcycle show. Unlike the two GSX-Rs, this is an all-new bike.The Suzuki GSR750 joins bikes like the Kawasaki Z750R, Yamaha FZ8, Aprilia Shiver and Triumph Street Triple in the practical, affordable middleweight naked class. Bikes like this sell extremely well in Europe where insurance prices dictate ownership costs and motorcycles fulfill actually transportation needs. Middleweight nakeds pack comfortable ergonomics and reasonable street performance into affordable packages that can massively undercut built-to-spec race-reps.
As you’d expect, the GSR750 uses a re-tuned (read de-tuned) version of the GSX-R750 engine. Expect peak power to be reduced from 148bhp at the crank on the GSX-R to 125bhp-ish on the GSR. Peak torque should remain around 60lbft-ish, but the curve should now be fatter.
