Suzuki revolutionized the sportbike category in 1985 by introducing the original GSX-R750. This was one of the first motorcycles to wear the GSX-R badge and cemented the Japanese manufacturer’s place in sportbike history. Today, over 37 years later, the GSX-R750 lives on, but quicker, better equipped, and more capable than ever before.
Initially designed for the 750cc class of motorcycle racing (which popularity later directed the industry to build 600cc race bikes instead), Suzuki is currently the only Japanese manufacturer still producing a 750cc supersport for a racing class that no longer exists. At the heart of the motorcycle is a 750cc inline-four engine that produces 148hp and 64 lb-ft of torque. It’s the perfect stepping stone for someone who wants to upgrade from the GSX-R600 without jumping straight to the GSX-R1000, both of which are also part of the 2022 Suzuki model lineup.
As the Japanese manufacturer mentions on its website, “The GSX-R750 is a modern representative of Suzuki’s championship-winning heritage, delivering an exciting riding experience you can use on the street or on the racetrack – it’s your choice.” True to its words, Suzuki has equipped the GSX-R750 with a host of track-spec hardware and electronics ideal for the street.
On offer is Showa suspension at either end, Brembo Monoblock front calipers, and the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) that lets you adjust power delivery depending on riding conditions. For 2022, the GSX-R750 is available in two color schemes — Glass Matte Mechanical Gray / Pearl Brilliant White and Glass Blaze Orange / Glass Sparkle Black. Meanwhile, the GSX-R750Z, which is essentially the same motorcycle, is available in a Metallic Triton Blue / Metallic Mystic Silver colorway that pays tribute to the manufacturer’s MotoGP machines.
The 2022 Suzuki GSX-R750 starts at $12,599 USD / $13,399 CAD.

2022 Suzuki GSX-R750 / R750Z Features
The 2022 GSX-R750 is available in new Glass Matte Mechanical Gray and Pearl Brilliant White or Glass Blaze Orange and Glass Sparkle Black paint schemes.
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.
Compact, 750cc, four-cylinder engine with a race-proven over-square bore/stroke ratio produces remarkably strong high rpm power delivery.
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.
Lightweight and compact twin-spar aluminum alloy frame is constructed of five cast sections to produce a balance of light weight and strength.
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.
Stylized Suzuki “S” 3-D emblems on the fuel tank and the fork upper bracket denotes the quality, sophistication, and performance legacy of the brand.
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).*
*Subject to separate coverage for certain parts and the exclusions and limitations described in the New On-Road Motorcycle Limited Warranty.
