In 1996, Suzuki listened to its customers and brought the GSX-R 750 1996 Suzuki back to where it should have been. With a new chassis, new engine, 39 mm carburetors, a new line, weight 20 kg fell, weighed 179 kg with 128 horsepower and precise handling.
The Suzuki GSX-R 750 1996 is manufactured using technologies derived directly from racing 500cc GP. Even looked a lot like the bike Suzuki RGV 500 Kevin Schwantz will pilot in the FIA World last year.
The new model Suzuki GSX-R 750 1996 was as extreme as the first model GSXR a decade earlier. The wheelbase was reduced to 1,400 mm and the new framework 24 ° twin-spar aluminum (instead of double cradle) was very stiff.
The new engine was an impressive feat of engineering, the most compact, lightweight engine class. New race distance (72 x 46 mm) engine, water-cooled, DOHC, four-valve, 25 degrees moved forward.
Cylinders mounted SCEM (Silicon Carbide Electro-Plate) to reduce the passage of the cylinder. This year the new air induction system, DASS (Suzuki Ram Air Direct) and electronic control BDSR 39mm carburetors is introduced.
The DASS stands for Suzuki Ram Air Direct (Direct Air Force Suzuki) is a system used by the manufacturer Suzuki in some of their motorcycle engines. It consists of a direct air intake, usually from the nose fairing, which goes directly to a box or airbox overpressure, where the feed rate for induced dynamic pressure, the air increases its pressure relative to atmospheric, being then mixed with fuel and subsequently injected into the cylinders. System efficiency increases with speed, since the pressure in the airbox increases with it, thus resulting in a supercharging system, acting the same way as a mechanical displacement compressor, but without needing to use any element added to the engine.
The lightweight magnesium was used to cover the cylinder head, starter, clutch, transmission gear and other areas. These and other weight savings allowed the new model achieve the same dry weight of 179 kg as the original model of the Suzuki GSX-R 750 1985.
The 43 mm inverted forks and rear suspension were fully adjustable.
