Many of us feel nostalgic when we talk about the ’90s, so here’s a retro Gixxer that’ll fill the void for good. Suzuki’s flagship GSX-R is, without a doubt, one of the most successful nameplates in motorcycling history.

The Gixxer is an exercise of agility, brute force, and unrivaled performance, so it’s not surprising that petrolheads are quite literally in love with this fierce piece of Japanese machinery. Right, let’s not prolong this introduction any more than is needed.

This article’s photo gallery features a 1992 MY GSX-R750 with a little over 12k miles (19,000 km) on the clock. Additionally, the mechanical menace comes equipped with a Vance & Hines exhaust system that’ll roar harder than a dinosaur who’s stepped on a Lego brick. The bike in question is currently up for grabs on Bring A Trailer, with a top bid of just 5,500 bucks.

If you’re feeling inclined to submit yours, be sure to visit the BaT platform until Sunday evening (September 5), when the bidding deadline will be reached. Before you head off, we invite you to join us for a short inspection of the machine’s fundamental characteristics. In this manner, you’ll get a clear idea as to what we’re dealing with here.

The fiend is put in motion by a twin-cooled 749cc inline-four mill, with four Mikuni carbs, sixteen valves, and a compression ratio of 11.8:1. When the crank turns at a whopping 11,500 revs, this nasty animal is capable of generating up to 118 feral horses, while a peak torque output of 59 pound-feet (80 Nm) will be spawned lower down the rpm range.

A six-speed gearbox transmits the engine’s force to the rear 17-inch wheel by means of a chain final drive, resulting in a top speed of 160 mph (258 kph). Furthermore, the Gixxer will cover the quarter-mile distance in no more than 10.7 face-melting seconds. Long story short, there are plenty of reasons to check this sexy thing out!
