New 2014 Suzuki GSX-R750Z Surfaces

It looks like 2014 is a great year for Suzuki, and the house of Hamamatsu is enjoying releasing special edition and limited edition motorcycles quite a lot. While only 45 lucky chaps will be able to claw one of the 45 Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 Limited we reported on yesterday, not all hope is lost. You’ll have to settle for a new GSX-R750, now with a striking, even more elegant livery and a mysterious Z suffix.

That’s right, Suzuki Europe announces the all-new (liveried) 2014 GSX-R750Z. The bike gets a nifty makeover in in red and black, with multiple matching accents and gold anodized finish on the outer tubes of the Showa BPF (Bog Piston Fork). The bike gets red rim stripes, red anodized fork adjusters and a red saddle, which is one of the things we rarely stumble upon these days. The last aesthetic detail on the new 2014 GSX-R750Z is the red paint on the radial monoblock Brembo calipers, also adding a dash of individuality to the machine.

On the tech side, the GSX-R750Z is identical to its base-version brother. Both machines are powered by the same 4 in-line 750cc engine, capable of producing 150 horsepower and over 86 Nm (63.6 lb-ft) of torque at 11,200 rpm, and with an impressive 14,500 rpm redline.

The engine comes with 2 mappings and an adjustable race-grade slipper clutch for even more extreme operation on the track. Since the Z version of the 2014 GSX-R750 is only different on an aesthetic level, the price of the two bikes is the same. You can ride home aboard a 2014 GSX-R750Z for €12,900 ($17,560), European price. Watch the walkaround video of the R750Z Suzuki showcased at the 2013 EICMA and start counting the days until you get yours.
