2008 Suzuki GSX-R750

Introducing the 2008 Suzuki GSX-R750. With the most powerful, efficient and cleanest running 750cc four stroke production engine Suzuki has ever produced. A new cast-aluminum-alloy frame. Exciting new bodywork with increased aerodynamics. An advanced engine management and fuel injection system with adjustable on-the-fly mapping. Fully adjustable high-performance suspension, and radial-mount brakes. Delivering open-class racetrack performance in a middleweight-sized package.

It’s as if the talented team of engineers responsible for the GSX-R750 designed a racebike with street equipment like lights, instruments and a horn and mirrors. Which makes it more obvious what the 2008 GSX-R750 really is.

Not just a true race replica

The original race replica, reborn

 


FEATURES:

New Engine

– New larger 41mm ventilation holes between cylinders to reduce crankcase pressure and mechanical loss

– New electronic fuel injection system features Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system – with dual fuel injectors per cylinder and new compact 8 hole, fine spray injectors for improved fuel atomization.

– New S-DMS engine management system allows the rider to choose from three engine settings to match riding conditions with a handlebar mounted switch

– Under deceleration the back torque limiting clutch reduces pressure on the clutch plates for smoother downshifting and corner entry

– New clutch cover and oil pan feature new internal ribs for increased rigidity and reduced engine noise

– New Idle Speed Control (ISC) system for improved cold starting, consistent idle quality and reduced emissions

– New high volume Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) with an innovative under engine chamber leading to a new large volume muffler with a new distinctly shaped triangular silencer

– New hydraulic cam chain tensioner automatically adjusts while reducing noise and mechanical losses.

– New Ignition coil outer diameter is smaller for reduced weight and the starter motor uses new rare earth magnets for a compact lightweight design

– New 32 bit ECM features 1024 kilobytes of ROM for maximum engine performance working in conjuction with the new S-DMS engine management system


New Chassis

– The 2008 GSX-R750 features a sharp new look utilizing a bold new headlight design, new angular tail section and compact overall layout

– New electronically controlled steering damper uses a solenoid valve to move a tapered needle reducing or increasing oil flow to adjust damping force.

– New lightweight cast aluminum wheels featuring a new angled spoke design for improved rigidity, reduced unsprung weight and improved acceleration

– New Inverted 41mm Showa cartridge front forks are fully adjustable for high and low speed compression, spring preload, and rebound damping

– Radial mount four piston front brake calipers works with new thinner 310mm front brake rotors and a revised front brake master cylinder

– New GSX-R750 fuel tank features an innovative new design and fuel capacity is increased to 17 liters


Engine Features

– Updated Compact 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine designed for optimum combustion efficiency and maximum power delivery

– Cylinder head with narrow valve angles creating a compact combustion chamber design, 12.5:1 compression ratio, large intake and exhaust ports for optimum intake and exhaust efficiency and new
Iridium spark plugs

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

– Lightweight forged aluminum alloy pistons with short skirts, cut away sides and an anti-friction surface finish along with shotpeened chrome-moly steel connecting rods for improved strength

– Crankshaft features forged steel construction and a secondary balancer shaft for reduced vibration at high rpm.

– Crankshaft and transmission shafts are positioned to create a compact engine design and the engine itself is rotated slightly forward in the chassis allowing for straighter and shorter intake and exhaust ports

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

– SRAD ( Suzuki Ram Air Direct) force feeds cool, pressurized air into the airbox at highway speeds, improving engine efficiency and throttle response


Chassis Features

– The lightweight frame is built entirely of aluminum alloy castings and is engineered to deliver optimum rigidity, unmatched accuracy and maximum cornering performance.

– A braced aluminum alloy swingarm features a large 22mm swingarm pivot and is designed for optimum rider feel and maximum rear wheel traction

– Innovative rear suspension linkage utilizes a forged aluminum alloy link and a forged aluminum link rod that reduces side loads and helps the rear shock absorber move in a smooth arc

– Showa 41mm aluminum alloy rear shock with a 16mm rod diameter are fully adjustable for high and low speed compression, spring preload and rebound damping for maximum rider control

– Three way adjustable footpegs now feature die-cast construction and can be moved into three different positions with a 14mm horizontal and vertical range

– Compact, lightweight instrument cluster features a step motor controlled analog tachometer, LCD speedometer, dual trip meters, clock and a convenient gear position indicator
