1973 Suzuki GT750


  • The more powerful M-version of the GT750
  • In the desirable blue and white colours
  • Said to run and ride fine

The Appeal

Suzuki were booming in the Seventies and their three-cylinder air-cooled two-strokes proved a big world wide hit thanks to their sporty good looks and turn-key reliability. The GT750 was the first Japanese bike to feature a water-cooled engine and was promptly nicknamed ‘the kettle’ in the UK.

Thanks to a 738cc two-stroke three-cylinder engine that developed a beefy 67bhp, the performance was no joke though and it could do a claimed 110mph. A five-speed gearbox and an innovative three-into-four exhaust helped it get there.

For the 1973 to 1975 season the model was retuned for more power and also benefited from twin-caliper, twin front disc brakes. The 1975 model featured revised exhausts boasted 70bhp and a claimed top speed of a heady 120mph!

This particular M-code GT750 is a 1975 model is a UK registered model that was restored by the current owner, with the engine being rebuilt by a well-known engine builder near Scotch Corner. It is said to run and ride fine.
