The roots of the GSX-S750 go all the way back to the 2005 GSX-R750 K5, since it shares the same 749cc in-line-four cylinder with that super-sport legend. Sure, the engine has been heavily tweaked and modified over time, but the essence of that motor can still be felt. It develops 113bhp and 81Nm of torque, all of which is served in a linear, creamy and progressive manner. Don’t, however, be fooled into thinking that it has no thrills to offer – for it has plenty. As you prepare the motorcycle to turn, you can’t help but be astonished by its superb brakes. And the moment you lean the bike to enter a corner, it sticks to the intended line and stays glued to the tarmac – thanks to the Bridgestone Battlax S21 tyres. The front end has a lot of feel, and you never feel that you’re lugging around a 215kg motorcycle. The best part is, even if you make mistakes – braking mid-corner, changing lines or abruptly opening/closing throttle – the GSX-S750 still saves the day by always staying calm and composed. It’s a super sweet and forgiving motorcycle, with looks to kill.
