The GSX-R750 weighed in at 20% less than the GS750. An uncompromising street-legal racer the oil-cooled, lightweight engine is mated to a hydraulic clutch and six-speed gearbox. The 1988 J-model retained the essence of the original whilst being more efficient.
The bore was increased to 73mm and it has larger inlet valves. The smaller crank gives a stronger bottom end. Aerodynamics improved the high-speed road holding. 1992 saw the introduction of the watercooled DOHC 16 valve 750 in addition to a newly designed frame. Performance was not noticeably higher. Small refinements were made over the years, some good, some not so good but overall in the right direction.Weight was gained, but in 1996 it was reduced by 44 pounds.
The new short stroke engine was compact & surrounded by a big-beam perimeter frame. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specifications and technical data, rider's impressions, long term reports, new model introductions, design.
