suzuki gt750

Combined with direct oil injection, the Suzuki was a sophisticated motorcycle in its day. However, in the middle 70s, motorcycle emissions were coming under greater control in most countries, and the GT Suzuki was considered to be one of the worst (most polluting) vehicles on the road at the time. Suzuki developed the GT750 from its 500cc two stroke models, although it’s fair to say both owed a huge debt to DKW who were racing two-stroke triples back in the mid-50s. The GT750 was the first Japanese serial manufactured motorcycle with a liquid-cooled engine. It was a unique engine construction in its day and today considered one of the classic Suzukis, loved by its owners. Known as the Le Mans in America, it received soon a nickname “Water Buffalo”, and other nicknames in other countries.

 It was generally known as “Kettle” in Britain and  “Waterbottle” in Australia. This huge, wide engined bike, which weighed in at 550 lbs, was about 30 lbs heavier than a Kawasaki Z1. The 739cc engine was an inline water-cooled triple with 70 x 64mm bore and stroke. The cylinder block was alloy with cast iron liners.
