Launched: Suzuki GSX-S750
There you have it! Another middle-weight naked that has been priced spot on
We informed you, a few weeks ago that Suzuki was about to launch the GSX-S750 here in India and we are super excited to test the ‘Apex Predator’. Yes, that’s what Suzuki is calling their GSX. We have ridden the ‘Predator’ and you can click here for our first ride review.
In terms of design, the GSX-S750 looks exactly the same as its big-hearted brother, the S1000Z. Not only the overall look but also the instrument cluster has been carried from the S1000Z to the S750. The GSX-S750’s instrument cluster displays an array of information like gear position, odometer, dual trip meters, coolant temperatures, driving range, fuel consumption, and traction control mode status. Speaking of which, there are three modes you can choose from. In terms of electronics, you get three levels of traction control and ABS.
It’s powered by a 750cc, in-line, four-pot engine which produces 113bhp and 81Nm of torque. This motor is then mated to a 6-speed gearbox. An inverted telescopic fork at the front and a link type, monoshock at the rear takes care of suspension duties. And if you’re crossing the 200kph mark (which you will, if you are at a racetrack) you need some serious braking power – two 310mm floating disc brakes at the front and a single disc at the rear.
After the Hayabusa, the GSX-S750 will be second high-end sports bike which Suzuki will assemble in India. The GSX is priced at Rs 7.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) which makes it a direct rival to Kawasaki Z900, Yamaha MT-09 and the Triumph Street Triple S.
