Can the Suzuki GSX-R750 beat the competition on the street? See photos in the 2014 Suzuki GSX-R750 Street Comparison photo gallery. Read the full review in the 2014 Heavyweight Supersport Road Shootout.
- The Suzuki proved to be our overall favorite street bike due in part to how easy it is to ride and its high-level of comfort.
- The Suzuki’s brakes worked well on the street but don’t feel quite as sharp as the Ducati’s or MV’s. They were effective in our stopping test however.
- The GSX-R750’s Inline Four was the least powerful in terms of peak power. However, it had the broadest powerband which made it easy to ride on the road.
- Experienced riders won’t miss traction control and ABS. However it would be nice equipment especially for riders that are just getting into sportbike riding.
- The Suzuki’s cockpit is the most comfortable and the most adept at all-day rides.
- The Suzuki offers the most stable and predictable handling. Though we wish it was a hair more responsive during turn-in.
- The Suzuki has a surprisingly amount of character and engine sound for a Japanese bike. It’s a fun ride but not as exciting as the MV or Ducati.
- The Bazzaz quickshifter helped increase the GSX-R’s acceleration performance allowing it to capture the highest trap speed through the quarter-mile.
- On the scales the GSX-R750 weighs the least but it doesn’t necessarily feel that way behind the handlebar.
