2006 Suzuki GSX-R750 from United States of America
The exhaust tuning valve actuator had to be replaced (9,000 miles).
The throttle position sensor had to be adjusted because the throttle was "jumpy" (9,200 miles).
A great motorcycle which is more fun than the GSX-R600, and much more streetable than the brutal GSX-R1000.
One of the most adjustable suspensions of any sport bike.
Because the GSX-R750 has been produced for over 20 years, every aftermarket company produces something for it.
The power comes on quickly, and continues all the way to the 15,000 RPM redline.
The bike can do over 100 mph in first gear, and puts the front wheel in the air with little effort (roll on).
A slipper clutch from the factory, as well as a tool kit with which you can rebuild the entire bike (excluding the engine mount bolt).
Three positions for the factory rearset makes the bike comfortable for most riders, and can be used in one position for daily commuting and another for track days.
With Pirelli Diablo Supersport tires, the turn in is predictable and very, very quick with knee slides easy to perform.
The seat has ridges down the sides, which are there to make the bike look good standing still, but cut into your legs on longer rides (70 miles or more).
Suzuki saved weight by using a very small battery, and this allows the battery to go dead in cold weather in short order. You must have a battery charger if you live in a cold climate.
The bike requires frequent tuning of the sensors and other parts of the bike. With a manual and some know-how, it is easy to do yourself, but if you need to bring it to a shop to have the work done, it becomes very expensive in a short time.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
