Escalation is a wonderful thing. Witness 160-horsepower literbikes and the savage, screaming beauty of 600cc repli-racers that are pushing 110-hp at the rear wheel. It's all wonderful and a true enrichment of our, ahem, Cycle World. But in the process of watching and enjoying the arms race, we kept asking for lighter-handling, easier-to-ride literbikes and torquier 600s. And all the while, there has been a machine that treads the middle, one that brings power, ease-of-handling and an all-around basic goodness to the road and track in a way that is better for everyone. Yes, the Suzuki GSX-R750 has been right here all along, and it's better than ever this year. Thank you, Suzuki, for staying the course and making the best all-around sportbike you can buy.
