Post Listing Update: This Gixxer 750 was pulled off of eBay, final sale price unknown.
Though the model debuted in 1985, Suzuki’s legendary Gixxer line did not make its way to the US until 1986. The changes were minor – better headlights, a revised belly pan, and 25mm longer swingarm, but Americans were probably too busy drooling over the first true street-legal race replica to notice.

This example (VIN: JS1GR75A0G2100476) has 11,634 miles and it’s got a hefty amount of upgrades – Fox Twin Clicker shock, Gold Valves in the fork springs, thicker fork brace, Gixxer 1100 rear wheel (for wider tires), Hayabusa master cylinder, CRG levers, Galfer braided brake lines, Vesrah pads, 520 chain conversion, K&N pod filters, DynoJet kit, Vance & Hines ignition advance, Yoshimura full exhaust…it’s a long list. With that said, it seems that almost all the original parts are included if you’d rather have something closer to stock. It’s been dyno verified at 93 horsepower at the rear wheel and has supposed hit a GPS-verified speed of 147 miles per hour. The seller has owned this bike for 6 years and has put just 500 miles on the bike. Hopefully the new owner will get to ride it a bit more.
