On the scene for four years at the end of the ‘90s the Suzuki GSX-R750 was a reinvention of the manufacturer’s entry in the sportsbike category. The 1996 model signalled the end of the double-cradle frame and introduced a twin-spar frame derived from the Grand Prix RGV500 ridden by Kevin Schwantz. This saved the GSX-R 20kg of weight, but what attracted everyone was the alluring acronym, SRAD. Standing for Suzuki Ram Air Direct and in layman terms this resulted in new air intakes that forced the air directly into the airbox. Our very own James Whitham thrashed one around World Superbikes for a few years before the tasty Alstare Corona paint scheme appeared on the fairing. The chassis still makes for a brilliant trackday sleeper.
