Way back in the last millennium, 750s were tops on the street—and in roadracing too. But in today’s market, these machines have ceded authority to larger literbikes and smaller 600s. Except, that is, for the sterling GSX-R750. A great motorcycle is all about balance, and Suzuki’s all-but-invisible 750cc DOHC four has it. It packs 25 percent more displacement than a 600cc supersport motor into a package that’s approximately the same size and weight. In fact, despite its displacement bump, at a claimed 419 pounds, the GSX-R750 is only 7 pounds heavier than the GSX-R600. The result is a 750cc sportbike that handles like a 600, accelerates much like a literbike, and doesn’t require high revs just to cruise down the road.
