For a hardcore gearhead, the almighty Gixxer name is synonymous with glory, sheer power and undisputed performance. In fact, finding a single individual who doesn’t have a deep sense of respect for Suzuki’s flagship beast might prove to be a challenging endeavor.

Most riders wouldn’t even think about questioning this machine’s long-standing reputation, regardless of whether you ask them about a modern iteration or an old-school superstar. Without further ado, we’ll get to the point and tell you that a 1988 MY GSX-R1100 is currently up for grabs on Iconic Motorbike Auctions.

At the time of this article, the top bidder is offering $5,100 to get their hands on this retro GSX-R, but the reserve has not yet been met. If you’d like to take part in this auction, you may submit your bids until Friday, July 9. Before you head off to IMA, we invite you to join us for a short inspection of this samurai’s main specs and features.

The Japanese predator comes equipped with a twin-cooled DOHC inline-four powerplant, which boasts sixteen valves and a gargantuan displacement of 1,052cc. At about 9,500 rpm, the colossus is good for up to 125 feral horses, along with a peak torque output of 76 pound-feet (103 Nm) that’ll be summoned at 8,000 spins.

A five-speed transmission keeps the rear wheel in motion by means of a chain final drive, allowing the Gixxer to run the quarter-mile sprint in 10.7 seconds as it makes its way to a top speed of 155 mph (250 kph). Stopping power is supplied by dual 310 mm (12.2 inches) brake discs up front and a single 220 mm (8.7 inches) rotor at the rear wheel.

The bike is supported by a pair of 41 mm (1.6 inches) telescopic forks and a full-floater monoshock module. Lastly, Suzuki’s two-wheeled behemoth weighs in at 434 pounds (197 kg) on an empty stomach, while its wheelbase measures 57.5 inches (1,460 mm).
