It wasn’t by accident that the original GSX-R750 redefined the high-performance Supersport and shocked the motorcycle world when it was introduced in 1985.
It was a product of integrated design, a talented group of Suzuki chassis, engine and electrical engineers making history by working together to build a more compact and lighter 750cm3 Supersport.
With an unmatched combination of excellent throttle response, linear power delivery, strong braking, confident handling and class-leading power-to-weight ratio, it was the closest a mass-production four-stroke, four-cylinder streetbike had ever come to being a racebike with lights.
EFFICIENCY BY DESIGN
Combustion efficiency is a measure of how completely an engine burns its fuel.
Better combustion efficiency can increase power and torque output across the rpm range; improve throttle response, acceleration and fuel mileage; and reduce emissions.
Mechanical efficiency is a measure of how much of the power and torque produced by an engine actually reaches the rear wheel.
Reducing mechanical losses by minimizing internal engine friction, reducing the weight of reciprocating internal parts and relieving crankcase pressure can increase mechanical efficiency, putting more of an engine’s output to use actually moving and accelerating the motorcycle and also improving fuel mileage and reducing emissions.
