I was just curious as to your thoughts on the GSXR 750. What is the future for this bike?

For some time I have been thinking of adding the 750 to my stable but now I'm really torn between the 750 and the 1000. And with Suzuki not updating it this year, could it be hint that it might be dropping it? With WSB allowing the 1000 to run would signal no need for the 750.

I honestly feel the 1000 is too much for the street but if the 750 isn't going to be around that much longer why bother with it? Personally I feel that the 750 has the right balance of everything. Big enough for the street, powerful enough for the track.

The 750 market is huge. They still sell tons of them. Whatever the racing rules end up being I don't think that the 750 is going to go away just yet. Everyone was saying the TLR was doomed for '03 as well and it made the cut this year...

My bet is that the 750 gets a redesign for '04. :eek:hyeah Which would somewhat fit Zook's patterns. (5 year life before major redesign). Here's hoping the TLR does too. ;)

they are gonna make the 750 as long as they keep selling them.
they might not update it as much(althought it wil still get upadates when the 600 and 1000 are updated).
It will still be a better street bike for the average rider.

I agree with Karl, I think they will always have it... But they will not be updating it at all probably... At least solely on it's own. I think you'll see some enhancements that they implement into the 1000 and 600.

I doesn't need much anyways really.

If it keeps on selling, Suzuki will keep it in their line-up and probably update just the ergos along with the 600.

just my .02

I think everyone agrees the 750 is an awesome bike. Honestly, it's more bike than 95% of us can probably use. Remember, this is a bike that manages to keep up with and in many cases, outrun liter-class bikes. If you've ever ridden a G1K, you know that it's a monster, way too much for the average rider. If Suzuki axes the 750, what progression can someone make from a "small" 600 to? A liter bike? Although most people wont admit it, very few people are ready for liter bikes. I think the 750 will be around as long as it's making money, and even if/when WSB allows liter4s to run, there are many classes out there that are tailored to 3/4 liters.
I love em and hope they dont get axed. I hope they continue to progress and recieve updates and new tech, even if it's handmedowns from the 1000 or 600 development.

Well I guess the 750 is still here. I can attest to it, I currently ride an 06 750.

When I rode a 2005 750 I thought it was the perfect bike for me. It was as easy to turn in as the 600, but it beat countless liter bikes out of the corners.

If Suzuki stops developing the 750 it will be a sad day. They have a stranglehold on that market, and they do a very good job at continuing development.

I just read somewhere that there may be some 800cc racing rules coming into effect. They contacted the major manufacturers and they where all saying basically that they would build one if needed.
When the spoke to Suzuki, the guy basically just laughed and said that they already have a world class 750 that sells great, and asked why would they want to change it at all (other then continued developement).
