2012 Suzuki GSR750 ABS Review
2012 Suzuki GSR750 ABS
From winning awards in 2011, the GSR750 races in to 2012 and is now available with ABS. With a power-plant derived from the awesome GSX-R750 , chassis and running-gear developed from our street fighter knowhow , the GSR750 is the complete package. A package so good it scooped the coveted Motorcycle News Award for best all-round machine of the year (under 750cc ). Praised for it’s strong engine, sporty handling, styling and ease of ride, we are very proud of this prestigious award.
Boasting a revised GSX-R750 engine, that retains the 12.3 to 1 compression ratio, the GSR750s motor has been refined to produce more ‘urge’ off the bottom along with a broader power-band. Instant throttle response allied to the stronger mid-range puts the power exactly where you need it for road riding and smooth and safe overtaking. The narrower valve angles and reworked intake and exhaust ports have also helped to improve fuel efficiency by 10%.
The positive, light overall feel of the bike along with the sporty and more upright riding position is confidence inspiring putting the rider firmly in control. Attention to detail includes a narrower chassis enabling more riders to plant their feet firmly on the ground. Big and beefy adjustable high spec’ Kayaba USD 41mm forks are fitted up front and the rear damper is also an adjustable Kayaba so both ends can be fine tuned to suit the rider’s weight and riding style.
The GSR750 ABS is a new kind of naked machine: one that combines dynamic styling, 749cc performance and an exhilarating, sporty ride with each component carefully designed to work perfectly and add to the GSR750 ABS’s impressive presence. With strong lines running from nose to tail and impressive specification, the unique chassis incorporates the best qualities of a compact tubular streetbike frame and the pin-point accuracy of a twin-spar sportsbike frame. Riding on KAYABA suspension and powered by an engine derived from the GSX-R750 , the result is a truly unique machine that offers strong acceleration from linear low-to-mid range torque and an intensely exciting ride.
GSX-R750 derived engine – Through modifications, including revised cam profiles, intake and exhaust tracts and a 12.3:1 compression ratio, Suzuki engineers have tuned the 749cc engine to produce broad low-end torque and dynamic mid-range power for strong acceleration and unmatched throttle response.
More fuel efficient – With the valves set at a very narrow angle, the combustion efficiency is also improved and with cutting-edge design techniques to reduce mechanical losses, sees a 10% improvement in fuel efficiency compared to the GSR600 .
Upside Down Forks (USD) – A design developed in racing and mandatory for any serious high performance machine, the inverted KAYABA front forks feature41mm stanchion tubes and adjustable spring preload .
Sporty handling and riding position – With a sporty riding position and a careful relationship between the handlebars, footrests and the seat, adjustable front and rear KAYABA suspension and a compact frame, the new GSR750 ABS tracks with real confidence to deliver a dynamic ride.
Exciting and unique instruments – With adjustable brightness, the instrument cluster features a prominent, easy to read analogue tachometer and a large digital LCD speedometer. The LCD display also includes a gear position indicator, fuel gauge, odometer/trip meter and a clock.
Slim mid-section – Designed to enhance comfort so that a wider range of riders can confidently get their feet on the floor.
A fusion of technology, fuel-injected performance and chiselled styling, the Suzuki GSR750 ABS is built to turn heads for riders who wish to stand out from the pack.
The Suzuki GSR750 ABS is ideal for cruising the streets or weekend blasts, as it combines a powerful engine and quality components, with strong angular lines across the whole machine.

Providing impressive stopping power, the GSR750 ABS is fitted with 310mm dual front disc brakes and a 240mm rear disc brake.
A sculpted vented front fender and headlight shell and chiselled aggressive front bodywork complete its head-turning looks. Gold coloured anodized upper tubes on the inverted KYB front forks and exposed 4 into 1 exhaust system highlight the GSR750 ABS’s styling.
