There is a dealer around me ( 45 mins away) new for 8999 plus fees. Thanks to the recession if you look it can be affordable.

Thanks for the heads up. I ended up getting a 2011 for a pretty good price. Only thing was the set-up/delivery fee was like $1k. Not sure if this is a normal price or not. I think my price for the bike was a little lower than $8999 by a few hundred. Either way I am super happy now, it's a great bike, too bad its been raining

Re: 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 Review

I remember when I 1st laid hands on one in the spring of 2011. There were many 10 of us going for a nice twisty mountain ride. I was pushing it out of the way in a parking lot and thought it was a 250 or 500. I wasn't really paying attention but it felt so small and lite. When I saw that it was the new 750 I was like OH SHIT!!!! When I finally got to ride it I was impressed. It was totally stock and didn't have that soft low & mid that the 06/07 stock 750s had. It handled awesome, even on the stock bridgestones. I would love to get my hands on a used 2011 and make the same changes I did on my 07 750, which I love!!! I am ole school and dont care for all that electronics crap. She is perfect the way she is.

Not sure how you think the recession affects a bike that is now 1 full model year old and has the 2012 models ready to be released. 8999 plus fees brings it up to dead dealer cost with the current $1000 rebate added in. It's just a simple matter of buying at the right time. I'm shopping to get one as we speak and that price that you mentioned is the best one can do right now.


Oh, and for all you people who love your 04's-07's, that's great. I bought an 07 new back when, fantastic bike, put 15K on er in 2 summers. I used an 11 750 trade in for the better part of last summer, and aside from cosmetics (they grew on me), the bike is light years better than my 07 in every way, power, suspension, shorter wheelbase, brembo's etc, etc. It's cool to hang on to your older bike, nothing wrong with that, but don't for a second confuse the fact that newer is always better, especially in this case.

Re: 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 Review

I don't like this headlight shape, but I like that there aren't any zany graphics under clear. Not really a fan of the color scheme but it could be much, much worse. Did they fix the herky-jerk issue in the 2011-2012 bikes I wonder?

Re: 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 Review

At first I thought I liked the older K6 design, but after owning mine, and looking at my buddies older bike again, I like the new design way better. Looks more aggressive, better looking front end and tail section, although I think I like his side fairing slightly better. Styling is subjective though. In terms of performance in the low and mid range, it smokes his bike.

A Gixxer 750 with 106 ponies. How times have changed.

The GSX-R750 arguably the bike that started the replica racer revolution marked its 25th anniversary in 2010. Oddly, Suzuki decided to celebrate the noteworthy birthday last year by creating a limited edition GSX-R1000, designated by little more than special paint and "25th Anniversary Edition" on the mufflers and wheel rim striping.

For us in the States, 1986 was the first time we could zip down the road on a Gixxer, so this year is something of an unofficial 25th anniversary for the 750 in America. Thankfully, we at least have an upgraded and lighter weight GSX-R750 in 2011 to celebrate with even if we're the only ones partying.

Got mine Sept 2012, love it. Didn't like the looks that much at first but it grew on me after a few days of ownership. I've pretty much had every gen since 96 and this one is the best of all. Panel aren't so cheaply made. It is very refined now. Throw a leg over one at a demo day. You'll be glad u did.

Re: 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 Review

I purchased this bike almost one year ago exactly and couldn't be happier with it. At first I wasn't incredibly happy with the look of the headlight but it was one of those things where after I took it around the block for the 1st time the bike developed a personality and it was an instant love affair.

There are so many reasons I love this bike, the handling, mid-range power, over all feel and control of it..but I'm not going to break them down because it's been done before and you probably know too.

I have literally NOTHING bad to say about this bike save for the issue with the mirror caps. Suzuki addressed the issue and since I replaced them, she's a 10.

On a personal note I am a really nostalgic guy and I do get sentimental with some of my stuff. After selling my 1st car that had a major impact on me as a kid (81 Trans Am) and still regretting it to this day--my promise here is that while I do completely plan on a 2nd bike and a track bike as well, I am NOT selling my 750...ever. This bike will continue to get very subtly customized and grow old with me.

Spring is on the horizon and the battery will be going back in soon!! Nothing better than punching out of work on Friday afternoon on a warm day, throwing a leg over and taking the longest, twistiest way home I could possibly find.

Gixxer for life!

Re: 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 Review

Hello, I currently ride an 03 CBR 954RR, and it is time to move on. My honda is a great bike except for the fact that it gets very hot around the legs after riding for a short period of time.

So now I am looking at the 2011-2013 GSX-R 750, and would like to know if this bike has any tendency to get very hot, (I have not heard any complaints from my friends who have the older models) or at least uncomfortably so when ridden for a while?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I don't think it gets unusually hot. I only notice it on hot days when riding around the city. You can feel some hot air on the right side, probably from the exhaust.

Compared to my previous bike (2000 CBR F4) it is a little warmer, but nothing to worry about. I would say go for it!!

Great! Thank you for the info. Truly appreciate it especially since I plan on going for a test ride today. My 954 was leaving heat marks on the insides of my legs after less than an hour ride if the outside temp was any higher than 85. Which in Florida where I live is the norm for most days.

How did the test ride go? I've had no heat issues. I really love this bike.

Re: 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 Review

I just bought a 2013 GSXR 750, and I must say that the right side of the engine is very hot when my leg happens to brush against it at a traffic light. Other than that, I dont have any heat issues. My 2009 R6 would cook your left shin on hot days, and my wifes 2008 ZZR600 would burn your right knee if it contacted the frame. The GSXR seems good so far by comparison but I havent ridden it in hot weather yet.

Re: 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 Review

I noticed the right side gets a little hot on hot days...probably from when the cooling fan cycles. But it's not intense enough to be a concern. Unless ur riding in shorts or something like that and ur leg touchs the engine case but then that would burn u on any bike. Lol

I did the hotbodies undertale in white and rear wheel hugger in factory blue, dark smoke windscreen from zero gravity and yoshimura r77 full carbon slip on ... & motorcircle carbon fiber frame and swing arm sliders. Took off the factory warning labels.

The undertail fits like a factory component. Highly recommended.

I too have an '03 954 bought new and now with 44K miles. No issue with leg heat but I can assure you my new '11 750 operates at cooler temps than the '03 (and former '01 929(new) and current '04 RC51 and former '02 954 and former '03 RC51). I'd even say the 750's radiator is larger than the 954's. All my Hondas heat up very quickly at summertime stop lights (200++F) and even notice a slight increase in coolant temp. when riding with a tailwind. The 750's coolant temp. is much less sensitive these conditions. Although too early in the season to gauge 90-100+F ambient temp 750 riding comfort, no question in the 70s it runs cooler.
