Suzuki GSX-R 750 model history
2000—2005

I have tried to tell the GSX-R 750 model history on this page as I know it. This page is still under construction. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

The second revelation! Everything was new on the 2000-year's GSX-R750Y (16th model version).  The engine and the chassis have been totally redesigned. The bodywork was more aerodynamic, 30 mm lower in overall height, longer swingarm, longer wheelbase, 4-piston brakes (rather than the 6-piston of before), smaller rear rim (back to  5.5"), shorter and narrower engine with redesigned fuel-injection and a huge 13 kg lighter (166 kg).
.
The engine features 12 degree intake valves and 13 degree exhaust valves, both one degree narrower for even more compact combustion area, enabling remarkably high 12.0 compression ratio. The cylinder head front to back length is reduced 7,5 mm and the head cover is lightweight magnesium. Cylinders are one piece with the upper crankcase for both strength and weight reduction. And the crankcase continues with the distinct three-piece design. All these contribute to an engine 15 mm shorter in length and 8 mm narrower in width and 5 kg lighter, achieving the goal of compact lightweight design. Feeding optimal fuel to the engine is the new electronic fuel injection system with double valve rider controlled throttle valve and the electronically controlled valve: increasing torque and power as well as increasing combustion efficiency  that contributes to cleaner exhaust emission as well. The new mainframe is further lightened and the swing arm has been lengthened 20 mm while the wheelbase is kept at 1400 mm for better handling and traction control.

All the larger motorcycles made for the Japanese home market are power restricted.
Prior to 1993 the maximum horsepower were the following:
  250cc class: 45hp
  400cc class: 59 hp
  750cc class: 77 hp
  over 750cc: not allowed

The new limits for the models built in 1993 and after, were:
  250cc class: 40hp
  400cc class: 53 hp
  750cc class: 77 hp
  over 750cc: allowed, but restricted to 100 hp.

Bikes with more powerful engines are and were made for export only. However, if a Japanese private person wants to buy an unrestricted bike, they are allowed to import it from another country by themselves for private use...
