was a revolutionary concept when released in 1985. Rather than being a road bike that could be adapted for racing, the GSX-R750 owed its development to the track. With its air-assisted oil-cooled engine and state of the art square-section alloy tubular cradle frame it not only looked the part, but it performed too, and laid the foundations for a whole series of superbikes.
It was not just a success on the road as its high power to weight ratio and superb handling ensured it was always going to be a strong competitor on the track.
Motorcycle journalist and superbike enthusiast Gary Pinchin has travelled extensively to interview the key players in the story of the GSX-R750, from its development and teething troubles through to its triumphant successes on the track.
With a Foreword from former two-time World Superbike champion, Doug Polen, who took the Formula One and Three All-Japan titles – the first non-Japanese rider to do so – on the Suzuki, this is a fine record of a significant motorcycle.
