"Only 1,000 units will be produced, each bearing a serial number plate on the yoke."

I wonder how much extra that serial number plate is going to cost?

It won't cost you anything, because you aren't going to buy one!

That number plate is going to add weight and screw up the handling. I'm switching over to R1 dude.

The GSXR set the standard for street racers when it came out and so commemorating it isn't a bad idea even though a 750 would be a more fitting displacement. Too bad Suz is doing this in this economy. However the thing was on the drawing board before the economic crash so Suz probably figured they didn't have much choice. It's basically a cosmetic job anyhow.

Yeah the original 750's were really cool looking. That was a fun time with the Intercepter, GSXR and Ninja all coming out within a year or two of each other.

Seeing one of those old 86 GSXR750 or 1100 in good condition brings back alot of memories. Wish I could find one in a crate somewhere.
