I’m guessing it’s been discussed here a thousand times, but I’m gonna cover it again, just cause I like to say it. In 1985, the GSXR 750 set a standard that I would argue has not been met since. While I certainly tip my hat to the many bikes (GPz, FZ, GS and the like) that came before and blazed the trail, the GSXR 750 changed the game. From the time of its introduction, it set the mark that put into motion every company racing to catch up. Is it just me, or did every other sportbike that followed become more aggressive after the GSXR came out?
Here’s some specs: Cast aluminum frame, clip-on bars, vented fuel tank, and a 106 horsepower , 53 lb.ft. of torque in-line four. The aluminum frame helped bring the bike in at 464 lbs. Light compared to other bikes in the 750 world at the time.
Here’s a few more pics-
Some brief information from the seller-
The seller here doesn’t give a whole lot of detail about the history and maintenance and it does have 17,000 miles on it so it would be smart to get more detail. It also looks to have a Yoshimura exhaust but the seller indicates the original is available. Since there’s no reserve I guess the market will decide where it goes.
Although this isn’t the first year of the GSXR, it is the second, and I think represents the beginning of the legacy of this bike well. If the bike checks out, this could be a good opportunity to get a nice piece of sportbike history. If you agree, check out the auction!
