The 2018 Suzuki GSX-R750 comes with minor exterior changes only while keeping rest of the ethos exactly as before
Suzuki has just taken the wraps off the 2018 model of its GSX-R750 sportsbike. The manufacturer has decided to offer new paint schemes only to the 2018 iteration of the motorcycle. The 2018 Suzuki GSX-R750 will be offered in all-new black-red and black grey colour options. Besides, a blue paint scheme is also available to own.
Mechanically, there are no changes to the Suzuki GSX-R750 and the 2018 model continues to get its power from the same 749cc, four cylinder engine that runs the outgoing model. The mill comes mated to a six-speed transmission system and it sheds out a maximum power output of 148 bhp along with a peak torque of 86 Nm. With this set up, the bike can sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in less than 4 seconds.
It is quite unlikely at the moment that Suzuki will launch the 2018 edition of GSX-R750 in India. However, the company has plans to launch the GSX-S750 naked streetfighter at the 2018 Auto Expo. A month after that, Suzuki will be launching the V-Strom 650 adventure tourer in the country.
The braking to the Suzuki GSX-R750 is taken care of with the help of twin 310mm disc brakes upfront along with a single 220mm disc brake at the rear. The bike rides on 120/70-17 front and 180/55-17 rear tyres that come mounted over stylish black alloy wheels. The suspension system of this motorcycle comprises of inverted forks upfront along with a monoshock at the rear.
The Suzuki GSX-R750 has overall body dimensions of 2030mm x 710mm x 1135mm (LxWxH) and has respective wheelbase and ground clearance of 1390mm and 130mm. The bike has been assisted with a fuel tank having 17-litre capacity and has a total kerb weight of 190 kgs.
The big thing right now is the Suzuki Intruder 150 that is all set to be launched in India on November 7. The bike will challenge the likes of Bajaj Avenger 150 Street. Expect the Suzuki Intruder 150 to arrive at a price of Rs. 1 lakh (ex-showroom).
