Archive: 1989 Suzuki GSX-R750RR

In honor of it being 30 years since Suzukiís first GSX-R750 came to America, we hereby present what Iím pretty sure is the rarest of them all, the bike that proudly wore two 'R's before others had even one, the super-rare race-homologation special 1989 GSX-R750RRĖ also reverentially known as 'RK' among the few collectors who know this bike exists.

It may be a bike even Suzuki wants to forget, or maybe to deny existed, since itís basically a rolling mea culpa, Latin for 'our bad.' The original low-mass GSX-R750 of 1985 (it didnít come to the U.S. until í86) was a tremendous worldwide success, a motorcycle lots of people say was the first streetable racebike, as opposed to all the raceable streetbikes that had preceded it. It was good enough to win the FIM World Endurance Championship in 1987 and í88, in fact. Flush with victory, Suzuki jumped into a redesigned GSX-R in 1988, with an all-new chassis and a new, shorter-stroke engine that would make even more horsepower! In the í80s, if a little was good, a little more was better. Bore and stroke went from 70 x 48.7mm to 73 x 44.7mm.
