SUZUKI GT 750 - 1972 - CANDY LAVENDER
The Suzuki GT750, which was an upper class motorcycle, was shown for the first time at the 17th Tokyo Motor Show and launched in September 1971 as a sports tourer (GT standing for Grand Tourismo). In spring of 1972 the motor cycle, nick named 'kettle', was also available in Europe.
The GT750 was heavy at 249kg, with a three cylinder engine, a crank shaft in 120 degree arrangement, which was water cooled and designed for high torque. Together with the CCI lubrication of the crank shaft, the GT750 developed into a motor cycle for a tourer.
Over many years a facelift was done. In the first stage the front Duplex drum brake was replaced by a more effective disc brake. The chassis was revised: the telescopic fork was, according to the trend, turned around and therefore lost its distinctive gaiter. Visual retouching was done, in order to slim down the entire design line. Decorative parts, such as the cooler- and engine-cover were always slightly changed.
The high volume two stroke engines constantly lost legitimacy and the laws for exhaust emission World Wide became stricter and therefore did not allow for the petrol lubrication needed for the Suzuki GT750. Leftover until the last series of production is the unique sound and traction power of the engine.
At the end of the 70s Suzuki switched to the more complex four stroke technique and became the legitimate successor of the GS- and GSX-series.
Today a well-groomed GT750 'kettle' is one of the highest demanded old-timer motor cycles.
