2005 Suzuki GSX-R 750 review
GSXR 750 review
Review of the GSX-R 750 submitted on 2005-12-30.
I purchased my 750 at the begining of last summer after riding some friends bikes....R1´s, CBR954, a GSX-R 600...they were cool and I was actually looking at buying an R1 when my friend mentioned Aurora Suzuki in Seattle would allow test rides. I´d been reading about the 750 and decided to give it a try-I´d wanted to test ride at some other shops but was told no. Well....once I got on that GSX-R that was it. I had a Bandit 600 and this was actually easier to ride.....and had power like my friends 2000 R1. Another friends 2002 r1 was faster but turning that was hard-this bikes turns with no effort. It was also faster than the 600...good low end. I´ve ridden it all summer (6K miles) and I have to say it is a great bike. I don´t recommend it as a first bike though. It is too powerful and more importantly it has both an abrubt on-off throttle response and the power hits at 9500 rpm like a freight train. Its light, easy to ride and the only thing I have had to do maintence wise is sync the throttle bodies. It would be a lot nicer with some hooks for straps-mine has an undertail and maybe it comes with them stock but I don´t know. The riding position is aggressive but comfortable and the lack of steering effort keeps your arms from getting burned out. I recommend getting an double bubble windscreen, the one on there is next to useless. The fairing is a pain to take off compared to the R1-they need to improve that. Also, my insurance is closer to that of a 600 than a 1000. Overall I would buy it over any other sportbike.
