2015-Suzuki-GSX-S750Z-USA-1

Suzuki Motor America has just wrapped up its dealer show, and the surprise announcement is the 2015 Suzuki GSX-S750. The 749cc cousin to the Suzuki GSX-S1000 that debuted at the INTERMOT show, the Suzuki GSX-S750 is exactly what you think it is.

Taking the GSX-R750’s engine, and tuning it for low-end torque and mid-range power, Suzuki says that the GSX-S750 is perfect for street riding. Europeans have been calling it the Suzuki GSR750, since 2011.

The real kicker for the American market though is the price, as the GSX-S750 (available only in matte black) comes in at a paltry $7,999. Meanwhile the “Metallic Triton Blue and Pearl Glacier White” painted Suzuki GSX-S750Z (shown above) will hit dealer floors at $8,149, MSRP.

We gave Suzuki a lot of grief over the GSX-S1000 this week, but it seems they heard our thoughts in advance regarding pricing on the GSX-S line. There appears to be tremendous bang for the buck with the Suzuki GSX-S750 — American street enthusiasts, your budget streetfighter is here. Photos and specs are after the jump.

    This is exactly what I am looking for. Great price great all around machine. The ergos look a tad sportier than I imagined but only seat time will tell. This would be perfect next to my vstrom.

  • Jason

    No ABS? Bummer.

  • Bob

    NOW THAT’S WHAT I’M FOOKING TALKING ABOUT!!

  • Great value and the blue looks tasty. radiator fairings need to stop soon though. #overused

  • Ian John

    she sure is heavy.
    have to whinge about something. good on em on pricing, just a shame she aint a light weight like the FZ/MT’s

  • Laurencio

    Yes!

  • vito

    Thank you Suzuki for putting a set of sh@tty brakes on this beautiful machine.

  • MikeD

    @Vito:

    LMAO, I kinda said the same, I looked at the forks and kept looking down, then . . . GASP . . . I thought by now radial mounts were the industry’s standard ! ?

    And don’t even get me started on the Home Depot special square tubing swing arm . . . would it have killed them to put an aluminium one from an older Gen Gixxer ? !

  • paulus

    The mid-range naked segment is hotting up.
    Beware MT-07/09…

  • Matt Higgins

    It’s good to see Suzuki using the longlasting 750cc engine in another model.

  • Brandon

    Suzuki really is reaching deep into their parts bin… how many 750 and 1000s do they have left over? And where are they getting those brakes from? 2001? The concept is cool, the execution, not so much.

  • Xan

    It’s like an ugly, heavy, small FZ09! Man, Suzuki will be printing money as long as no one remembers the naked bike that all others are compared to!!!

  • Bob

    The FZ-09 is a joke, with its beta test EFI and crap suspension.

  • Lionprince

    Main thing the fz09 has going for it is it’s soulful 3 cylinders. It’s why we ride. To become one with bike and road.

  • Agent55

    1995 called, it wants its box-section swingarm back.

  • SteaminSteven

    Wow we get a 4 year old European byke that is being sold as a new model…. weak…

  • Mxs

    Reading the comments …. I think i can say that i have seen it all ….. FZ09 is a joke and parts bin Street fighter Suzuki is a beautiful machine. LOL … Yeah ok.

    AR would be better of just to close the comments section …

  • Bob

    I don’t think anyone is defending the GSR750 too fervently…it is clearly built to a price… a price-point that Suzuki desperately needs to fill with a competitive platform – in this role, the GSR750 might be ideal.

    But make no mistake, the FZ-09 is still a joke, and was one of the biggest disappointments i’ve yet ridden.

  • Renn

    That’s a great price… I hope it still get the slipper clutch and gear indicator the super sport bike gets, however I doubt it.

    All I know is riding a GSXR750 is a great experience. It has a wonderful engine.

    Also the brakes are understandable on this machine at this price point. Triumph Street Triples all have this set up unless buying the R in which case you get radially mounted Brembo’s.

    My brother own as Triple and a GSXR750 so I am able to make a comparison.

    Good Job Suzuki.

  • Gil

    Great looking bike. Powerful, proven engine. Attractive price point. FZ09? No thanks. FZ07? I’ll pass. This is my next bike.

  • Roadburner63

    The FZ09 is no joke. I own a Triumph Speed Triple and the FZ09. The Triumph is like a sport bike with high bars, but the FZ is like a Supermoto on steroids. The FZ is lighter, narrower, and just as quick with a more revy engine. It’s true that the suspension is a bit soft, but weighing 210 pounds, any bike I purchase needs some suspension work anyway. For city riding I take the FZ any day. It’s just more fun to ride!
