So here we go again. Another early model GSXR 1100. This one is actually the second year of production and the engine was basically a big bore version of the legendary GSXR 750. It’s an and and oil cooled monster that cranked out a claimed 137 bhp at 9,500 rpm. And in these early models that kind of power (unreal in 1987) gave the aluminum frame all it could handle. It also had SACS (Suzuki Advanced Cooling System-seen on the fairing), one of a multitude of acronyms that would grace many a GSXR model.
A few more pics-
This one-owner bike appears clean and fairly low mileage for its age. More detail from the seller:
I bought this bike new in 1986, it’s never had any abuse and has never been down. The bike did however suffer a tip over a week after I purchased it. I replaced all the damaged parts ie: brake handle, turn signal but I did not repair the paint on the lower right panel (see picture). The discolored paint is the only damage to the bike and is a little larger than a half dollar. I replaced the original tires last year, they were still in great shape except they developed a flat spot due to sitting. The bike is in very nice condition and has never been in the rain. I have all the original paper from new as well as a brochure, it still retains the “break-in” sticker on the speedo…
The bike looks clean and stock and the seller shows a photo of the paint damaged area as described above. To see this early of an example of a GSXR 1100 in this kind of condition is rare. And as I said in a previous post on a ’91 GSXR 1100, I think all current liter bikes owe something to the early model GSXR 1100’s.
So if early model game-changers are your thing in the sportbike world, take action and .
