So, why is it that Honda/Kawi/Yam don't make a 750?

Because it's not raced anymore.

Werd. If I had the cash it would be mine.

Oh ye of little faith. It was a homologation special. Once you get your hands on the race kit and present day tires, then laddie, you got yourself a rocket ship.

That was kinda my point... There's obviously a market for them, and it is not that hard to make them, so why not produce them? :confused2:

Right on. If there's a market, why not make them?

I loved the Ninja 7R. Yamaha R7 was a killer bike. Don't remember anything about Honda making a 750.

Is there though? Suzuki does quite well with them. But now add models from Yamaha, Kawi and Honda. Throw in the 848 and 675. Then consider slumping motorcycle sales. And then consider that if people want a supersport they can buy a 600, or if they want more power they get a liter bike. And nobody races 750's in the major superbike series.

In the end, Suzuki made a nice niche out of it, but that's the extent of it.

So the RC "whatever" or the V4 was Honda's 750 version of today's I4 750s? Interesting.

Sort of. It's what Honda raced back when it was 750 four cylinders vs. 1000cc twins.

Wasn't the Honda VFR a 750, now a 800?:rolleyes:

Suzuki does their own thing. They've never really follow the designing trend or marketing trend. They've just always done their own thing when everyone else kinda follows suit.

Everyone stop making the 750s, Suzuki keeps doing their own thing. Everyone went with dual headlights, Suzuki keeps doing their own thing (single stack). Everyone went with undertail exhaust, Suzuki keeps doing their own thing (side exhaust). Everyone is now coming back to what Suzuki does with their underbelly cat and low side exhaust. Everyone forgot about Ray. Suzuki still thought about Ray, knowing that he would venture to the darkside and buy himself one. And it wasn't until Spidermonkey left his CBR for a GSXR that he started going fast himself (with style).:D

I'll be one to say that the bike don't marvel in any one thing very well. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX10Rs have monster motors allowing for great top end. The Yamaha R1s have the sexiest styling and newest technologies and probably the only bike out there that has 6 piston calipers for great braking allowing for late corner entry. The Honda CBR1000RRs are probably the lightest of the group and the most flickable bike side to side allowing for exceptional track handling. The Suzuki GSXR 1000 has none of these claims. But it's a great work horse that has a good overall package to make it a good bike. My opinion.

I'm wanting a 750. It's a great bike. The perfect bike that will allow for an individual to go faster. My opinion.

Maybe Suzuki still has the 750 just for the history of the class and what it did in it? Yes-No?

I don't think any big corporation cares about history that much. I think it's for the $$

Maybe so, money does keep the doors open any way you can get it.

At the time when all the factories were making the 700-750, there really wasn't a liter bike....the R7 was only released so Yamaha could legally race it....
After the 900's turned into 1000's, the 750's kinda died....with exception of Suzuki......
The Honda VFR750 kinda turned from a "sport" bike to a "sport touring"

Just my :zz2cents:
