2015 Suzuki GSX-S750 First Look

2015 Suzuki GSX-S750

Suzuki’s wants a larger presence in the popular streetfighter class. And to accomplish this feat, Suzuki has released the new GSX-S series.

The lineup includes the GSX-S1000, which will arrive as an early 2016 release, and the bargain-priced 2015 GSX-S750 and GSX-S750Z, the “Z” signifying updated color choices. These motorcycles were unveiled during the Suzuki Dealer Meeting held this week in Las Vegas.

The upright naked GSX-S750 sport bike is powered by the potent 749cc inline-four featured Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve fuel injection. The engine was transplanted from the GSX-R750 sportbike.

The GSX-S’ powerplant was returned for optimal street power, receiving revised cam profiles and intake and exhaust tracts to boost low- and mid-range torque. Suzuki says the redesign provides “unmatched throttle response and intense acceleration.”

The GSX-S750 arrives with a combined tubular and twin-spar frame, 310mm front brakes and matte-silver painted handlebars. The bike’s instrument cluster uses an analog tach and a large digital LCD speedo. It’s packed with other informative readouts, and is adjustable for brightness.

Unlike the larger GSX-S1000, the GSX-S750 does not arrive with fancy electronics or ABS, which helps keep the price point around $8,000 – a bargain for a modern mid-weight streetfighter.

The 2015 Suzuki GSX-S750 is available in Metallic Matte Black, and GSX-S750Z in Metallic Triton Blue and Pearl Glacier White bodywork. This special “Z” package also includes gold-anodized outer fork tubes, red anodized fork adjuster bolts, a red shock spring and blue chain.

The GSX-S750 will be offered for $7,999, and the special GSX-S750Z for $8,149. Following are the main features and specs of the 2015 GSX-S750.
