The bike we all should own.
Power delivery like a rev-happy 600, not a torquey 1000. More's the pity

I've just got back from the launch of Suzuki's 2008 GSX-R750.

It’s a mega thing, brilliant. As soon as you sit on the GSX-R750 you feel at home. The seating position is perfect. Your knees tuck under the flared out top of the tank and you feel sat right in the bike, unlike the Blade which you feel perched on top of.

During the track session I rode the bike on absolutely standard settings and it’s f'in good. You feel confident straight away, just get on and go. It’ll hold a line brilliantly and is completely unfazed and perfectly happy if the corner is bumpy or silky smooth.

On the brakes the GSX-750 is faultless. There is no point saying it’s better than anything else because everything has good brakes now, but braking down from 125mph down to 40mph or so the GSX-R was just so settled.
