New GSX-R 750 – Since Suzuki introduced the first official prototype of the GSX-R 1000 2017 at EIMCA 2015, the whole world began to wonder if the Hamamatsu factory would follow the same path with its 600 and 750 cc models. To date, the Japanese brand has only confirmed the development of the new Hayabusa, a model that could reach markets around the world in a couple of years with a 1400 cc supercharged engine, in addition to incorporating a range of Electronic aids that little would have to envy the competition.
If the Hayabusa became an icon for Suzuki in the first decade of the 21st century, no one can question the historical importance of the GSX-R 750 in 1985, the year of its launch, when Suzuki put the first Superbike with aluminum chassis derived directly from the competition, a bike that marked a before and after in the segment of sports motorcycles.
