1976 Suzuki GT750 A

    • Year 1976
    • Registration ODC 603R

    Launched in 1971 the GT750 was the first Japanese water cooled motorcycle. While the other Japanese manufacturers concentrated most of their early production on four stroke engines Suzuki developed ever intricate two strokes, the ‘Grand Tourismo’ 750 was more of a sports tourer than an outright sports bike, the 739cc triple motor producing aprox 67 bhp, it become affectionately known as the ‘Kettle’ in the Uk and stayed in production until 1977.

    This late 1976 production bike was registered 1st August ’76 and was subject to much restoration work in 2012, following which the bike featured in many shows and motorcycle concours events including the prestigious Salon Prive event at Blenheim Palace in 2014. Since then the fine example has resided in a private collection only having covered some 500 miles. Remaining in excellent condition  it is supplied with a UK logbook and old MoT certificates.
