Suzuki GSX-S750 Enters Malaysian 2-Wheeler Market
Bold, powerful and nimble – what’s not to like?
Another middleweight bike launched by the newly formed Suzuki Malaysia is the Suzuki GSX-S750. A naked streetfighter by nature, it sets itself apart from the SV 650 with razor-sharp styling and a bigger, more potent engine derived from the GSX-R series.
Those with keen eyes will notice that the GSX-S750 takes its aggressive styling cues from its bigger sibling, the GSX-S1000. These include the headlight design and fang-shaped position lights, the black aluminium footpegs as well as the belly pan. It also comes with tapered handlebars, which are said to be able to enhance the rider’s field of vision.
According to Suzuki Malaysia’s website, there are four colour options to choose from – Metallic Triton Blue, Metallic Matte Black, Pearl Glacier White and Pearl Glacier White/Glass Sparkle Black.
Moving on to the engine, the 749 cc, inline-four unit is carried over from the 2005 GSX-R750, making it the only model in its class with an engine with supersport lineage. Equipped with the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system, it churns out a maximum output of 114 PS at 10,500 rpm and 81 Nm of torque at 81 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm.
Main features of the engine include ventilation holes on the bottom side of each cylinder to reduce pumping loss, Throttle-body Integrated Idle Speed Control (TI-ISC) with Low RPM Assist, and Engine Control Module (ECM), to name a few.
Electronics-wise, the GSX-S750 comes with Suzuki’s Advanced Traction Control System, which offers three modes. Mode 1 is for sport riding with minimal intervention; Mode 2 offers the ideal balance for typical road conditions; and Mode 3 delivers maximum traction control when riding in poor conditions.
As for suspension, there’s KYB 41 mm inverted forks at the front and a link-type monoshock with seven-way adjustable spring preload at the rear. Four-piston Nissin monobloc callipers squeeze twin, 310 mm wave-style brake rotors up front, while a single-piston rear calliper is paired with a single disc out back.
Vital information such as speed, odometer, dual trip meters, gear position, coolant temperatures, driving range, average fuel consumption, and more are available through a LCD instrument panel. The display has an adjustable-intensity, white-colour backlight for night riding.
The GSX-S750 is priced at RM40,989 and comes with a two-year/20,000 km warranty.
