Intermot: Suzuki GSX-S750 breaks cover

The Suzuki GSX-S750 naked bike was unveiled at Intermot today, raiding the parts bin to build a new mid-sized streetfighter.

When Suzuki brought out the GSX-S1000 last year, the engineers┬árepurposed old GSX-R1000 technology as a basis for the engine. This year, they’ve done the same with the 750; the new naked bike has a powerplant based on the old 2005-edition GSX-R750.

Of course, it’s been tuned for street use, and is Euro4-friendly. The revised engine makes 112 hp at 10,500 rpm, and produces just under 60 lb-ft of torque at 9,000 rpm.

Much of the rest of the bike is derived from the GSX-S1000, which is a logical move. The 750 version has a six-speed gearbox, low RPM assist technology (Suzuki seems to really like this feature, which helps ride smoothly in the bottom of the rev range), a three-mode traction control system (sport, road, rain), radially-mounted, four-piston Nissin calipers up front (with 310 mm discs), Bridgestone Battleax Hypersport S21 tires, and KYB inverted front forks.

The forks are adjustable for preload, and the rear shock has seven adjustments for preload.

ABS is optional in some markets, and will probably be standard in others. Curb weight is 213 kg with ABS, 211 kg without. For more specs and photos, visit Suzuki’s website here.
