The Suzuki GSX-R deserves a prominent place in the motorcycle pantheon. Initially, there was no Japanese Mocel on sale that differed very little in the road version and the racing machine.
1985 saw the market launch of the popular first generation Suzuki GSX-R 750, followed a year later by the more powerful GSX-R 1100. The first was a real racing bike that had registration and lights. The second was designed to see how far you could move borders strength and power in a sports bike. It was not well received by representatives of the trade press, but Suzuki fans did not care.
On the American portal Famous Motorcycle Auctions The excellent second generation Suzuki GSX-R 1100 from 1990 has just arrived. This juggernaut has everything necessary to evoke nostalgia for the last century: analog gauges, lamps on both sides, four Mikuni carburetors (one for each cylinder) and symmetrically lit diffusers on both sides.

Suzuki GSX-R 1100. Its performance is still impressive
Looking at the technical data reminds you that two-wheelers have evolved differently than cars. The figures of 1990 are still respected: four cylinders straight engine with a capacity of 1127 cm3 develops 143 HP of power and 117 Nm of torque, which allows you to accelerate to a hundred in 3.3 seconds and reach a speed of 232 km / h.. We can not “bother” with any electric assistants, because they are not there, even the huge empty weight, 210 kg dry (without oil and operating water), does not reduce.
In addition, the product from the auction is in good visual condition and seems to be in the same technical condition. Its mileage is approximately 16 thousand. km (less than 10,000 miles) at the age of 22 can be considered a sign.
Six years ago the Suzuki GSX-R from the photo was reportedly used as a showpiece in someone’s collection, and now it’s looking for a new one. The auction ends on Wednesday, July 27, and the current price is $7,600. There are still five days to raise to a more realistic level. The bike is waiting in Central Massachusetts and the owner is happy to answer questions about it.
