The GSX-R750 is a 750 class sport bike motorcycle from Suzuki's GSX-R series of motorcycles. It was introduced in 1985 and can be considered to be the first of the modern racer-replicas with many race-derived technologies and the looks of a Suzuki Endurance racer at an affordable price.
Air and oil-cooled
The oil cooled models can be further divided into the first generation and second generation oil-cooled models. They are informally referred to as slabbies (slang) and slingshots respectively. The 85-87 models featured body work which is very flat compared to modern sport-bikes , hence slab-side. The '88-91 (92 USA) models are sometimes referred to as slingshots because the carburetors introduced in 1988 were marketed as slingshot carburetors (slingshot describes the cross section of the semi-flat slide carbs).
GSX-R750 (F) 1985
The original model featured a lightweight aluminum alloy frame, flatslide carbs, twin discs with 4-pot calipers and tires both front and rear. The unusual choice of an oil-cooled engine was made to save weight as compared with the heavier water-cooled engines of the time.
