Suzuki GSR750 Review

Suzuki GSR750 Overview

The Suzuki GSR750 is a super naked bike which is quite alone in its category, offering riders the practicality and ease of use you might expect from more costly brands along with a stylish look and enough power and torque to keep even the most experienced riders happy.

The engine is a 749cc in-line, four-cylinder engine which has been proven reliable time and again.  Suzuki bikes are classically well made and although this bike is priced competitively you certainly don’t feel as though any corners have been cut with the chassis or bodywork.

Suspension is pretty basic but shouldn’t be too uncomfortable on main city and town roads and does handle fairly competently off-road as well although vibration through the handles becomes noticeable after a prolonged ride on bumpy surfaces.  It also has a street bike riding position which some may find awkward after a lengthy trip and the pillion seat is something of a problem being quite cramped at times.  This is something which shouldn’t prove problematic for those who just want to take a short trip out but may become more noticeable should you want to venture further afield.

The GSR750 is a budget middleweight bike and is kitted out accordingly.  It does come with a few surprising additions such as inverted forks along with a digital fuel gauge, clock, and gear position indicator as standard.

It is possible to pick up a fairly decent second hand bike if you are willing to search one out but it isn’t perhaps as cheap as you might expect for a bike of this calibre.

Comfort
Quite comfortable for the rider with a typical street bike position. A little squeezed for a pillion.
Ride Quality
Very flickable and predictable in corners and roundabouts.
Build Quality & Reliability
Completely reliable. Starts first time even after prolonged periods of non usage. Small amounts of corrosion evident, but acceptable.
Engine Rating
Coming from having a brace of 1200 Bandits, it does seem slightly pedestrian, but it was a compromise to gain a lighter machine.
Brake Rating
Completely predictable. ABS is a great asset.
Running Cost
A drive chain that doesn't rust so quickly.
Overall
Pros CommentsIt's lightweight compared to previous bikes I have owned, and easy to move around on the run or walking into my garage.
Cons CommentsA drive chain that doesn't rust so quickly.

Comfort
Seat is comfy enough for short and long journeys but could do with an upgrade to gel, long journeys require a few extra stops or stretches to ease the cheeks!
Ride Quality
Rides well, comfy, turns easily into and out of corners. Not too heavy although with it being a chunky tank and engine between the legs you feel in control but does have a top heavy feel when stationary.
Build Quality & Reliability
Pulls in all gears, the fun happens in 2/3/4 but will still move in 5/6 all round fun bike.
Engine Rating
I have not had a problem with it, touch wood. Only had it just over a year now but goes and performs well.
Brake Rating
Great braking system, unknown what it is but it stops!
Running Cost
£15ish to fill from near empty and can get 180-200 out of it depending on how your throttle useage. Can’t really answer the running cost per year as we’re all different and use our bikes at various times and reasons.
Overall
Pros CommentsIt’s fun on the winding country roads and very good for the longer journeys.
Cons CommentsHandle bar vibration
