the rr was an 89 model, sold in europe and canada. whereas the regular 89 750 had the short stroke motor, the rr had the long stroke motor (which made its way back into the regular 750's in 90), as well as things like a solo seat tail section, dry clutch, close ratio gearbox, 40mm slingshot carbs, etc. i think it also had an aluminum tank (tanks on 99% of production bikes are steel) and titanium connecting rods, but i'm not entirely sure about this.

it was basically just a 'limited edition' homologation streetbike for superbike racing.

this is why i was asking. It's a 91 RR for sale.

I guess something is amiss. it says 91 J???

yeah that doesn't sound right at all. he's saying it's a 91 gsxr750rr j. which is totally not right - according to suzuki's model designation, a 'j' model would be an '88. suzuki didn't make an 'rr' model in 88, or 91 for that matter.

the full designation of the 89 rr is gsxr750rrk. i have no idea what this guy's trying to sell.

and yes, the 89 rr has a braced swingarm, different fairings, and 40mm mikuni bst40ss slingshots (used on the euro and canadian 1100's from 91 on up).

i think it's the best looking of the 86-90 750's.
