The 2021 Suzuki GSX-R750 Is the Perfect Mid-Size Bike
Suzuki Motorcycles has had a very long history with the GSX-R750, beginning its production in 1985 as the first modern replica Japanese race bike that consumers could buy for the streets. Originally designed for the 750cc class of motorcycle racing (which popularity later directed the industry to building 600cc race bikes instead), Suzuki is currently the only Japanese manufacturer still producing 750cc motorcycles for a racing class that no longer exists.
The GSX-R750 utilizes its 750cc, inline-four engine to produce 148 horsepower and 64 lb-ft of torque making it the perfect motorcycle for someone who has outgrown their 600cc motorcycle but aren’t quite ready for a full 100% increase in performance with the 1000cc GSX-R1000R variant.
With last year’s 2020 models featuring standard liveries, Suzuki is celebrating 100 years of motorcycle production (and 60 years of racing) and as a result, their 2021 lineup of GSX-R series motorcycles will come in a Metallic Triton Blue and Metallic Mystic Silver colour option as a nod to their current MotoGP bikes as well as the racers of the 1960’s that gave Suzuki the history needed to produce the GSX-R750 today.
The 2021 Suzuki GSX-R750 100th Anniversary Edition starts at $12,699 USD / 16,687.12 CAD

2021 Suzuki GSX-R750 Features
The GSX-R750’s fuel-injected, 750cc, four-cylinder engine powers a balanced sportbike experience. This engine pulls strong off the bottom like a larger-displacement powerplant while it builds revs like a smaller mill – it’s the best of both worlds.
The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) lets the rider adjust the engine’s power delivery to suit the riding conditions.
The twin-spar aluminum frame effectively connects the steering head with the swingarm pivot portion of the chassis in a way that balances light weight and strength. The engine is suspended below the frame to keep mass low and the wheelbase short to promote nimble handling.
The Showa Big Piston Front Fork (BPF) and remote reservoir rear shock absorber are fully adjustable to deliver exceptional handling.
Twin Brembo Monobloc, radially mounted front brake calipers grasp fully floating stainless steel brake rotors to deliver strong stopping power.
The energy-efficient engine employs forged pistons, shot-peened connecting rods, chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes to reduce frictional and mechanical losses.
Lightweight titanium alloy valves are controlled by single-coil valve springs to reduce valve-train mass, reducing mechanical losses at high rpm.
Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection uses eight fine-spray eight-hole injectors for improved fuel atomization, which contributes to more complete combustion.
An Engine Control Module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has enhanced settings to suit the intake and exhaust systems, resulting in better fuel economy and linear throttle response.
Advanced MotoGP-developed transistorized ignition control programming helps maintain more precise spark timing across the range of engine speed and temperature.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of two racing-developed engine control maps to suit road or track conditions and personal tastes.
Four-into-one stainless steel exhaust system with a titanium muffler is fitted with a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve that maximizes torque and improves throttle response, especially in the low- to mid-rpm range.
The close-ratio six-speed transmission features a taller first-gear ratio and shorter ratios for second, third, fourth, and sixth gear, making it easier for a racer to get a good start while improving straight-line acceleration and drive out of corners.
Race-proven back-torque-limiting clutch contributes to smoother downshifting and corner entry.
The frame is mated with a cast aluminum swingarm and multi-piece rear sub-frame that’s ready for racetrack use.
Race-developed, lightweight Showa Big Piston Front Fork (BPF) delivers superb feedback and consistent performance.
Single Showa rear shock features externally adjustable rebound and compression damping, along with adjustable ride height.
Electronically controlled steering damper provides lighter steering at slower speeds and more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds.
Front brakes with fully floating 310mm discs are grasped by radial-mount, four-piston Brembo Monobloc calipers.
Three-spoke cast aluminum alloy wheels are shod with lightweight, high-grip front and rear tires for sharp handling.
Three-way adjustable foot pegs, adjustable shift lever, and short fuel tank help compose a comfortable riding position that permits the rider movement required for performance riding.
Compact, lightweight instrument cluster with a built-in lap timer/stopwatch and programmable engine rpm indicators to alert the rider to certain shift points.
Trim, simple, and lightweight bodywork creates an exciting, aerodynamic style that truly works well at speed.
Distinctive multi-reflector headlight with vertically stacked high- and low-beam halogen bulbs is centered between position lights on each side.
Bright, durable LED tail light, with clear lens.
The front turn signal are integrated into the rearview mirrors while the rear tail section houses the rear signals.
The lightweight instruments also include an analog tachometer and LCD readouts that show speed, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS, and gear position indicators.
Attention to rider comfort and confidence includes a carefully shaped seat with a high-grip cover.
The wheel rims have pin stripes punctuated by “R” logos that highlight the bike’s identity.
Optional single seat cowl can replace the passenger seat for an even more aggressive look or for use on solo rides or track days.
A variety of Genuine Suzuki Accessories for GSX-R owners are available, including a large selection of Suzuki logo apparel.
12-month limited warranty. Longer coverage periods with other benefits available through Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP).
