Suzuki's 750cc water-cooled triple was launched in 1971 a a 1972 model as their answer to the super bikes of the day, ikes like Honda CB750 and Triumph Bonneville. The GT750 was more a sports tourer (the GT standing for Grand Tourismo) and was, asically, T500 with an extra cylinder and liquid cooling crafted on.
The GT750 was the first Japanese serial manufactured motorcycle with a liquid-cooled engine. It was a unique engine construction in its day and today considered one of the classic Suzukis, oved by its owners. Known as the Le Mans in America, t received soon a nickname ”Water Buffalo”, nd other nicknames in other countries. It was generally known as ”Kettle” in Britain and ”Waterbottle” in Australia.
Although smooth, uiet and comfortable, he GT750 was big and heavy. This huge, ide engined bike, hich weighed in at 550 lbs, as about 30 lbs heavier than a Kawasaki Z1. The 739cc engine was an inline water-cooled triple with 70 x 64mm bore and stroke. The cylinder block was alloy with cast iron liners.
It had a five-speed gearbox and three into four exhaust. An unusual item in its day was the handlebar mounted choke lever.
The GT750 has apparently been sold in many countries all over the world looking virtually the same. However, he exhaust noise and pollution regulations are the reason why there are some differences in the engine performance. Also, here are more differences between countries. For instance, ome model years don’t have the grab rail behind the seat in some countries, hen other countries may have it. And so on.
This GT750 would be a great place for someone to start on a restoration project having 34k miles on it. The engine turns over and shows no signs of major damage although not running, xhaust cones are still intact, tock airbox and the side covers are undamaged as well. There are some battery acid stains on the exhaust and the bike needs some steering stem bearings. Please ask any and all questions prior to placing your bid.
