The 750 monicker has been synonymous with some mad, bad machines. Here are the Top 10 750s of all-time
1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo (94bhp, 233kg)
Yes, a production bike with a built-in turbo. Fast as hell in a straight line but soon to be outdone in all-round performance terms by the likes of Suzuki's race-rep GSX-R750.
1971 Ducati 750 Sport (55bhp, 180kg)
Ducati's first ever V-twin was basically two singles bolted together. The 750 Sport paved the way for the legendary 916.
1976 Benelli 750 Sei (71bhp, 220kg)
The world's first production six-cylinder machine, but in this case more wasn't better. But this didn't matter the 750 Sei looked fantastic.
1993 Yamaha YZF750 (125bhp, 195kg)
The poor old Yam didn't really get a look-in thanks to Honda launching the FireBlade. But for a 750 it could hold its own and the SP was jaw-droppingly hot, even with pink graphics
1977 Suzuki GS750 (68bhp, 223kg)
Notable for being Suzuki's first big four-stroke Superbike, the fast, smooth GS paved the way for some great bikes from Suzuki.

Nice to see the old Suzuiki GS750 brochure. I had one of those. Great bike.
