    Default Suzuki GSX-S750 MotoGP Replica: GSX-RR colours for the street

    It is not uncommon for motorcycle manufacturers to release special editions of their road-going motorcycles. And more often than not, they are based on their racing machines. Suzuki has been doing that for a while with the GSX-R1000 but this time around, the GSX-S750 gets the MotoGP treatment. From France with love; Suzuki GSX-S750 MotoGP Replica.



    Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday
    is something we are sure you haven't heard for the first time. That's the primary objective of manufacturers pumping millions of dollars in racing; to showcase their technological prowess and to have the tech trickle down to their roadgoing motorcycles. While in most of the cases, the halo product of the company is what receives the MotoGP treatment, Suzuki has decided to do something different this time around.

    Our review of the Suzuki GSX-S750

    Case in point, the Suzuki GSX-R1000R which has been getting the MotoGP livery treatment for a while. But not everyone wants a full-blown superbike. But that does not mean that they cannot sport the racing colours of the brand they love. Launched only in France for now, the Suzuki GSX-S750 MotoGP replica does just that.



    The middleweight streetfighter has been a good seller for Suzuki and there is no reason why something like that cannot be celebrated with some racing colours. The GSX-S750 MotoGP Replica sports the Brilliant-Blue with angled silver strips and Suzuki lettering slashing through the tank. ECSTAR branding is there on the belly pan, tail, and headlight housing.

    The livery is not the only thing differentiating the MotoGP Replica from the base model. The Akrapovic exhaust also plays a part in that and serves as a nod to the custom Akrapovic used on the Suzuki ECSTAR GSX-RR. A special tank pad commemorates Suzuki's 100th anniversary and their 60-year racing heritage.
    The Suzuki GSX-S750 MotoGP Replica is one good looking motorcycle but then, we aren't getting it... at least not right now. It is only available in France for now and it commands a considerable premium over the base model. But then the heart wants what it wants.

    Thumbs up Re: Suzuki GSX-S750 MotoGP Replica: GSX-RR colours for the street

    Inspired by the MotoGP machine... Hmm.. Haven't we heard this like, a whole lot of times? from various manufacturers? Needless to say, it still works.

    But even then, copying the Race bike's graphics and livery over this naked bike doesn't quite feel like the real deal. The naked bike has comparatively much lesser space to actually paint, and this means a lot has changed.
    But yes, good enough considering the differentiation from its Litre-class siblings.

    Akra is a great news though, in an otherwise regular setup.
