– 2005 Suzuki GSX-R750

New for 2005

Headlight switches off during startup to reduce load on battery

Key Features

Named “Best Sportbike” – Motorcyclist Magazine

Engine Features

Compact & lightweight 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine designed for overall weight reduction, optimum combustion efficiency and power delivery

Cylinder head with compact combustion chamber design, high compression ratio, large intake and exhaust ports for improved intake and exhaust efficiency and high power output

Lightweight titanium valves with steel alloy springs and aluminum spring retainers operated by thin-wall hollow camshafts to reduce weight and inertia

Lightweight forged pistons with chrome-nitride-coated upper compression rings and oil control rings for a harder, more consistent ring finish and reduced friction

One-piece cylinder block and upper crankcase section is equipped with ventilation holes between cylinders to reduce crankcase pressure and mechanical loss

Tapered, double-barrel throttle body design features Suzuki’s SDTV throttle valve system, plus multi-hole-type injectors for optimum fuel atomization and throttle response

Hydraulic cam chain tensioner fed by internal oil passageway system – eliminates external oil hose to reduce weight

32-bit ECM with high ROM memory, plus 22 trigger-pole rpm provide precise control of fuel and ignition systems – all housed in a small, lightweight control box

Lightweight stainless steel exhaust system featuring a high capacity muffler with titanium core pipes and aluminum outer sleeve

High capacity oil cooler and large trapezoidal-shaped radiator provide efficient engine cooling – includes compact cooling fan assembly designed for improved air flow

Close-ratio, six-speed transmission and cable-operated clutch

Chassis Features

Aggressive-styled bodywork design with minimal frontal area, plus ram air intake positioned close to center for high airbox pressure and intake efficiency

Vertical-type multi-reflector headlight, plus compact LED taillight and aerodynamic turn signals

Compact instrument cluster features a step-motor-driven analog tach, digital LCD speedometer and programmable rpm indicator light – also includes LED indicators for turn signals, high beam, neutral light, coolant temp, oil pressure and fuel level

Aluminum frame with extruded main spar design similar to GSX-R600 for optimum balance of size, weight and rigidity

Aluminum swingarm with extruded main arms and cast cross brace for torsional strength and minimal weight

Compact 17-liter fuel tank – designed with narrow width at the rider’s knees for easier movement and weight transfer

Inverted Showa cartridge-type front fork with 43mm inner tubes and fully adjustable damping and spring preload

Fully adjustable Showa piggy-back shock absorber with large diameter shock piston rod for improved damping performance

Radial-mount 4-piston brake calipers for maximum braking performance – system includes radial piston front master cylinder for improved brake lever feel

Dual-opposed-piston rear brake caliper indexed to the swingarm – eliminates conventional torque arm for further weight reduction

Lightweight cast aluminum wheels and high performance radial tires
