2000 GSXR-750

Suzuki issued its press packet containing detailed specs and photos on its redesigned GSXR 750. The dry weight of the new bike is claimed to be 366 pounds! This is lighter than Yamaha’s 600cc R6, for example, and lighter than Honda’s redesigned CBR 929.

Other significant changes have resulted in a claimed five additional horsepower and improved chassis geometry and suspension, which will contribute to improved handling and traction. Here are the official specs and some of the pictures issued by Suzuki late last week.
