New colour shades

Three-mode traction control system
Not many motorcycles in this segment are offered with this safety feature. Using data acquired from the race track, Suzuki has equipped the GSX-S750 with a three-mode traction control system that as per the company provides greater confidence and reduces fatigue by delivering control over engine output that helps prevent rear wheel spin. The rider can choose between the three modes using the switches located on the tapered handlebar.
Low RPM assist
When riding large displacement motorcycles in slow moving traffic, therr is a chance that the engine may stall. In order to prevent the same, the GSX-S750 comes with Low RPM assist which ensures that the revs don’t drop below a certain rpm to maintain a smooth idle. The system also monitors the engine speed, which enables the rider to simply engage the clutch and get rolling without the need to open the throttle.
Full LCD instrumentation
The GSX-S750 features a fully digital LED instrument console equipped with brightness-adjustment for better visibility for the rider. The unit displays a plethora of information including a speedometer, tachometer, traction control mode status, gear position, odometer, dual trip meters, coolant temperatures, driving range, fuel consumption, and time. The console also comes with five display patterns for the tachometer that can be selected by the rider as required.
In this department, the GSX-S750 comes suspended with inverted forks up front and link type monoshock at the rear. For braking, the streetbike employs 310mm floating dual discs mounted on Nissin 2-piston radial calipers. For the rear, it gets a 240mm single disc with a single-piston caliper. The system is equipped with dual-channel ABS as standard fitment.
