Suzuki GSX-S750 0-60 mph in 3.10 seconds
Below, we take a look at Suzuki’s GSX-S750 in-gear and outright acceleration through the gears, along with its top speed.
Suzuki GSX-S750 Dyno Curve
The GSX-S750’s engine is a donor 749 cc inline-four cylinder based on the legendary GSX-R750 from 2005. But you do not get the whole 145 horsepower at the crank, rather 112 horsepower at the crank.
It may sound lackluster if making direct comparisons but that would be missing the point.
Even if the GSX-S is down 30 odd horsepower it’s not all bad as the GSX-S750’s engine is retuned for more bottom and midrange.
If we look at the dyno, we see a healthy 105 horsepower at the rear wheel that arrives at 10500 rpm. Torque is 57 ft/lb though is produced high up in the rpm at 9500 rpm.
Producing torque so high comparative to where peak power is made may suggest a peaky engine but it’s certainly not the case, as from 4000 rpm the GSX-S makes good torque that increases progressively.
This ensures that the engine is willing and encourages you to ask for more rpm while delivering it exactly what you ask as you increase the rpm.
Suzuki GSX-S750 in-gear acceleration
There is a little flat spot at 6000 rpm, but it is barely felt on the road as when you are in it you are quickly out of it.
As mentioned, the GSX-S750 produces more power and torque than the GSX-R750 all the way through the rpm range. It is only at beyond 10000 rpm where the Superbike keeps making more power and thus offers more acceleration.
In-gear acceleration for the GSX-S750 is good, with a little more acceleration anywhere below 5500 rpm in any gear versus the GSX-R750 while offering slightly more acceleration from 7500-10000 rpm.
The GSX-S750 does make more power below 10000 rpm and does run lower gearing so we would expect it to have this in-gear advantage, though the advantage could be wider if it were not for the fact that the GSX-S750 carries a significant weight penalty.
The GSX-S750 is a middle-of-the-pack naked bike and competes with a wide range of motorcycles from 650 to 1000 cc such as the CB650R and the Z900. Its straight-line performance sits somewhere in between which makes sense.
0-60 mph is to be expected from a 100 plus horsepower motorcycle and the GSX-S750’s impressive time of 3.10 seconds is not a surprise.
0-100 km/h chimes in at 3.20 seconds though you must take the motor to 11500 rpm in first gear otherwise if before a change into second will add a few tenths
The GSX-S750 will happily wheelie when launching though is a motorcycle that is relatively straightforward to launch. So good times can be had easier and more consistently than most motorcycles.
Once into second the GSX-S750 settles down nicely but needs 3rd gear to hit 100 mph which the Suzuki GSX-S750 manages in under seven at a spritely 6.76 seconds.
This kind of time to the ton will ensure that the GSX-S750 will have most motorcycles easily beat or in sight, though against more powerful motorcycles the sprint from 100 mph, and onto and through the quarter-mile is where more powerful motorcycles will start to edge it.
Speaking of the standing quarter mile, the GSX-S750 is an eleven-second bike with a decent time of 11.24 seconds and a terminal speed of 122 mph.
This makes the GSX-S750 about as accelerative as 600s from the late 90s and very early thousands.
The quarter-mile time is about the same as the GSX-S750’s 0-200 km/h time, which the Suzuki can do in 11.86 seconds which is a time not to be sniffed at.
The GSX-S750 gets up to 120-130 mph pretty quickly but getting that last 10 mph or so out of her, you will need at least a mile if starting from a stop. But if you must know the GSX-S750’s top speed you will see a very respectable 142 mph which is good for a naked motorcycle making a little of 105 horsepower.
