Taking advantage of the arrival of Hasegawa's model of the Suzuki GSX-R750, Blue Stuff offers us the option of transforming it into this suggestive first generation "gixxer". Includes patterns to make the masks to paint the fairing, and complete instructions with a color reference guide. Now, to look for the green color of Skoal on the web!

Suzuki revolutionized the landscape of street motorcycles when it launched the Suzuki GSX-R 750 in March 1985. It was practically a registrable race bike, which was inspired by the endurance GS1000R that defended the Suzuki colors on circuits all over the world. It had an aluminum perimeter chassis weighing only 8.1 kg and multi-adjustable suspensions. As far as the engine is concerned, this was a four-cylinder, 16-valve engine with SACS (Suzuki Advanced Cooling System) air-oil cooling system, flat-door Mikuni carburetors, six-speed gearbox and hydraulic clutch. The final power amounted to 100 hp, which together with a low empty weight of 176 kg, made the performance of the first level. In 1986 the GSX-R got a 25mm longer swingarm to make it less twitchy, and a second version called the RR appeared. Already in 1987 a larger diameter fork and other small tweaks were incorporated. The story goes that, at the end of 1986, there were 50 units of the stock Suzuki GSX-R750 left in England to sell, so it was decided to repaint them in the unmistakable Suzuki Great Britain racing livery of Skoal Bandit chewing tobacco to give them an outlet. more easily before the end of the year .
