Jump on board the Suzuki GSR 750 and it doesn't take too long to realize you are in for a real treat. The first time I actually saw one was at the 2012 Motorcycle Show and the bike won me over. The first thing you notice is the smoothness of the engine and the gearbox is something I personally thought I would ever find on any bike it is so smooth that sometimes you really do have to look at the gear change indicator just to see what gear you are in. The riding position is upright so it is perfect for those long country trips as well as commuting around town, fuel economy is also a stand out feature. The seat itself is very comfy so you don't end up with a sore butt or back no matter whether you are travelling short or long distances, the suspension is pretty good right out of the box but you can make adjustments to it if you so desire. The brakes are sufficient without being spectacular and will stop you comfortably in most situations but if I had a little gripe too me they are a little bit spongy but like most things you do tend to adjust to what you've got. The instrumentation and the finished on the bike is first rate and the chisel look of the bike really does make it stand out from the crowd. I did change the exhaust on the bike but that's pretty much par for the course theses days as most manufacturers seem to have a contest on who can make the quietest bike.
