EVERY now and again a motorcycle comes along that makes the Visordown office collectively bite the back of their hands. Today is that day, as these images of the Team Classic Suzuki GSX-R750 SRAD landed in my inbox.

The bike is built around a former factory endurance racer and will be competing in classic road racing and track events in the coming years. It’ll be replacing the team’s successful XR69 F1 bikes, which have carried Michael Dunlop to Classic TT glory, at a number of events in recent years.

The bike features a factory dry slipper-clutch, a lightweight generator, a magnesium offset sump, a close-ratio six-speed gearbox, and a factory Yoshimura exhaust system.

The suspension for the stunning machine is by K-Tech and there’s a slightly longer swingarm for more stability. Brembo calipers provide the stopping power, with OZ lightweight wheels shod with Dunlop slicks helping to keep the handling in check.

In-house manufacturing was key to creating the bike, including the triple clamps, footrests, fork lowers, and carbon kevlar bodywork.

Raced by the likes of James Whitham and John Reynolds in World Superbikes and Chris Walker in BSB, the GSX-R750 SRAD epitomises 1990s sports bike-obsessed Britain, in part thanks to its bulbous seat unit and now-iconic silhouette. The ‘Gixxer’ became an incredibly frequent sight at bike meets up and down the country.

The Team Classic Suzuki SRAD livery is inspired by the Lucky Strike-sponsored endurance bike it began life as, a livery more commonly associated with the RGV500s ridden by the likes of Kevin Schwantz in Grand Prix.

The bike will get its first shakedown at a two-day test at Cartagena with Michael Dunlop next week.
