Archive: 1989 Suzuki GSX-R750RR

Doug Polen and Kev Schwantz qualified 3rd for the 1990 Suzuka 8-Hour on their Yosh Sietto RR, and finished 8th. In World Superbike, Polen won Race 1 at Sugo in ’89 and set pole, but finished 21st for the season with just 33 points. Fred Merkel won his second WSB championship on his RC30 Honda that year. Polen regrouped and won the ’91 and ’92 titles – on a Ducati. Photo by Rikkita.
