The Suzuki GSX-R 750 Limited Edition is already a legend in the US among 80s sportbike collectors, but here’s something even rarer – a home market (JDM) version, which had a different paint scheme. In the US, the Limited Edition cost 1.5 times as much as the base 750 Gixxer thanks to a $2,000 dry clutch upgrade, solo tail cowl, steering damper, metal fuel tank, and a whole bunch more. I’ve seen production estimates between 500 and 1,000.
The most expensive Japanese sportsbike available at the time, the Suzuki GSXR 750 Limited Edition was a solid 60 pounds lighter than the competition. The JDM-spec bike also came with some extras that US bikes did not get, such as city lights, a fuel gauge, headlight on/off switch, flat slide carbs, and more. According to the seller, Practical Sportsbike magazine says that just 150 Japanese-spec bikes were built.
This example (VIN: GR71G100265) has a not-insignificant 22,300 miles on the odometer, but it looks to be in good shape. Purists might be concerned as the seller has made some modifications – Yoshimura stickers, Yoshimura Cyclone exhaust, rebuilt Ohlins shock, polished forks, stainless steel brake lines, and gold powdercoated wheels. The seller made these changes to make this bike look more like a period Yoshimura race bike.
