Re: Thought this was a nice bike but then I Saw...
Yamaha and Kawi might have been doing a bit more advanced stuff back then but Team Hammer AKA Team Suzuki Endurance did have a run from 89-97. the advances in tech used might have made them a bit faster or handle better but they didn't take the abuse for long. Of course that is just looking at American endurance racing amd also looking at the 1100's and not the 750's.
Team hammer, if i remember correctly, continued to use the oil cooled motors even after the water cooled GSX-R's came out. I would take consistent reliability over fancy bells and whistles any day.
