The 10 All-time Greatest 750s

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.

Final Five 750s

1989 Kawasaki ZXR750 (107bhp, 205kg)

Those huge air scoops and twin headlights made the Kwak the best looking bike of its day.

1999 Yamaha R7 (106bhp, 176kg)

Limited edition, totally expensive WSB homologation bike. Superb chassis but never really cut it on the track against the 1000cc twins.

1988 Honda RC30 (110bhp, 185kg)

Hand-built exotica straight from HRC. You could own practically the same bike as a host of racing greats including Dunlop, Merkel and Hislop, amongst others.

1968 Honda CB750 (67bhp, 218kg)

The original Superbike, complete with disc brakes and an electric starter. How cool was that?

1985 Suzuki GSX-R750 (100bhp, 176kg)

The first-ever real race rep. Power, speed, handling and brakes - all in one lunatic package. Yee ha!
