Suzuki GSX-R750 was the first aluminium-framed superbike launched back in 1985 which made a remarkable impact & competition to all its rivals in the sportbike segment. Currently, due to Euro 4 norms, all the manufacturers are relaunching the upgraded motorcycles to meet the norms especially in Europe all the 2016 models shouldn’t be on sales from 1st of January and 125cc above motorcycles should have ABS and meet Euro 4 compliant norms. Suzuki has already in progress of working on its iconic bike Hayabusa, expected to launch in 2018 with upgraded power in the engine and added electronics to be competitive for its rivals.
As per the European ‘derogation’ allowance rules, small numbers of non-complaint pre-2017 models can be sold for up to two years. Through that, Suzuki plans to sell available stocks and might stop the production of GSX-R600 model globally as Honda already dropped the CBR600RR in Europe and Kawasaki is also expected to do the same with the ZX-6R. By this, we can assume that GSX-R750 comes into an important play to fill the gap between 600cc to 1000cc GSXRs.
According to the source from Australian media, Suzuki has planned to relaunch the GSX-R750 in 2019 or end of 2018. Seems, there won’t be any change in the performance of the engine but it is expected that GSX-R750 retains the existing four-cylinder engine, meeting Euro 4 norms and with ABS. Suspension and styling might likely reflect the look of the latest GSX-R1000. As always, until Suzuki confirms on this officially we will be hoping to happen soon and we will keep on asking the question “Will Suzuki relaunch the GSX-R750?
