2012 Suzuki GSX-R750 High Performance

The new generation 2012 Suzuki GSX-R750 features impressive updates for 2012 including an eight kilogram reduction off the total weight, advanced engine technology, broader power delivery, improved throttle response and lower emissions and is built on a shorter, compact wheelbase with simplified and lighter aerodynamic bodywork.The original and only 750cc sportsbike on the market, the all-new 2012 model GSX-R750 continues a legacy dating back to the model's ground-breaking launch in 1985, where it took race replica motorcycles to a new level. A truly individual street machine, the Suzuki GSX-R750 is a direct link between the racetrack and the streets and delivers powerful performance with supreme handling.

 The new generation GSX-R750 features impressive updates for 2012 including an eight kilogram reduction off the total weight, advanced engine technology, broader power delivery, improved throttle response and lower emissions and is built on a shorter, compact wheelbase with simplified and lighter aerodynamic bodywork.

The latest version of Suzuki's Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection system delivers impressive throttle response along with improved fuel economy and reduced emissions. The advanced Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) has been revised to optimise engine output and now provides riders a selection of two engine maps to suit the conditions or their riding preference. The 2012 GSX-R750 features an all-new chassis, which has been redesigned with an emphasis on weight reduction and compactness to improve overall handling and provide an ideal power-to-weight ratio.

 The newly designed, lightweight twin-spar aluminium frame, made from just five cast sections and cast swingarm, delivers superb cornering on both the road and racetrack, with optimal rigidity and unmatched accuracy. New for 2012, the Suzuki GSX-R750 features inverted, lightweight Showa Big Piston Front-forks (BPF), developed on the racetrack for even more supreme handling. For greater stopping performance, Suzuki's 750cc powerplant now incorporates four-piston Brembo monoblock front brake calipers and 310mm dual floating discs, and a single piston rear brake caliper with a 220mm disc. Evolved aerodynamics on the GSX-R750 include a newly designed muffler and a significant reduction in fairing overhang to maintain rider wind protection while reducing overall drag. A reshaped fuel tank, vertically stacked dual headlights and mirror-mounted turn signals finish off the good looks of this individual street machine.

GSX-R750 with Chassis new cast-aluminium twin-spar frame composed of five sections. The new frame is designed with emphasis on weight reduction. Material thickness of each frame section has been carefully optimized (the thinnest section has been narrowed from 3.5mm to 3.0mm), resulting in frame weight reduced by 1,350 grams. The seat rail is now narrower, making it easier for the rider to straddle the machine. In order to further optimize chassis dimensions, the wheelbase has been shortened by reviewing the layout of the frame and other sections, while keeping the swingarm length the same.

The front suspension newly features inverted telescopic type Big Piston Front-forks (BPF) made by SHOWA and developed with racing-technology feedback. The forks use 41mm-diameter inner tubes and the overall fork assembly, in particular the fork outer tubes, are newly designed. The BPF design relocates the fork springs to each fork leg, where they are completely submerged in oil. This reduces fork oil foaming and thus contributes to a more stable damping performance. Damping force and spring preload are both fully adjustable. The rear suspension comes with fully adjustable spring preload and rebound and compression damping force. Compression damping is a 2-way high-speed and low-speed – adjustable type, making possible precise settings. A ride-height adjustment system is equipped.

The Suzuki GSX-R750 with front brake system uses newly designed Brembo monoblock-construction cast-aluminum-alloy calipers, which feature high caliper-body rigidity and light weight. The 4-piston calipers are radial-mounted. The rear brake uses a compact and lightweight caliper shared with the GSX-R1000. The overall brake system is designed to heighten brake feel, with the goal of delivering better brake performance on racetracks.

GSX-R750 engine performance is highly refined balance of a state-of-the-art 750cm3 machine. Lighter weight and reduced mechanical losses result in enhanced running performance. Upgraded engine performance in the low-to-mid rpm range (more torque and power) results in more accessible, more controllable engine performance characteristics. Fuel mileage is improved by approximately 10% (WMTC mode, Suzuki in-house research). In addition to a combination of lighter engine weight and reduced mechanical losses, the progression of combustion efficiency and the reduction of overall weight also contributed to this improvement. Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system with further-refined two-map selection enables adjustable performance.

The new 2012 GSX-R750 is a lightweight and compact styling design created with the development goal of delivering, just like the engine and chassis, a truly state-of-the-art racetrack performance. While inheriting the highly popular styling themes of current and previous models, the latest model embodies further refinements that heighten its functionality. Styling highlights inherited from previous models, such as the rear view-mirror-integrated turn signals and the vertically-stacked dual headlights. Further refinements to realize a more compact, lightweight and functional styling design to help make the latest GSX-R750 more functional not only on racetracks but in a variety of riding situations.
