LONDON, England - South African owners of the original 1985 GSX-R750 can breath a sigh of relief. Looking for parts for your precious motorcycle is only a click away.

Suzuki Great Britain has announced the inclusion of the GSX-R750 as part of its Vintage Parts Programme. More than 1300 parts are still available for the iconic race-replica.

The GSX-R750 was launched in 1985 and widely recognised as the world's first supersport machine. It joined the RGV250 and GT750 'Kettle' as part of the programme, which aims to highlight to owners of more classic Suzuki models the range of genuine parts are still available.


Affectionately known as the 'Slabby', F to H models of the GSX-R750 are included in the Vintage Parts Programme, which has its own area on the website.

As well as listing parts still available, the website features a number of downloads, including original parts booklets and service manuals, as well as an area for owners to upload their own images.

Tim Davies, Suzuki GB after-sales marketing co-ordinator, said: "The Vintage Parts Programme has proven really popular with owners of classic Suzukis. It was launched to praise the RGV250 and since then we've added the GT750. We're now really pleased to be able to add the original GSX-R750.

"A lot of work goes into collecting all of the information on parts still available from the factory for these models, along with the literature to accompany them, and we're delighted to be able to announce the inclusion of such an iconic machine from Suzuki's history."
