The Suzuki GSX-R750 is a sports motorcycle made by Suzuki since 1985. It was introduced at the Cologne Motorcycle Show in October 1984 as a motorcycle of the GSX-R series.
The air and oil-cooled models can be divided into the first-generation and the second-generation colloquially referred to as ‘slabbies’ and ‘slingshots’ respectively. The 1985-1987 models featured very flat bodies compared to modern sport-bikes, hence the term ‘slab-sided’. 1988-1991 (1992 USA) models are sometimes referred to as slingshots because the carburetors introduced in 1988 were marketed as slingshot carburetors (slingshot describes the cross-section of the semi-flat slide carbs).
