Liquid Cooled Pioneer: The Suzuki GT750
The Suzuki GT750 is one of the most beloved Japanese bikes of all time. Released in the early 1970s during the formative age of the superbike, the GT750 was designed primarily as a sports tourer. Its smooth acceleration and comfortable ride made it a more refined alternative to the Kawasaki Z1 or Honda CB750.
But what really earned the Suzuki GT750 a prominent place in motorcycle history was its innovative engine. The GT750 was the first Japanese motorbike to employ a liquid cooling system for the engine rather than the traditional air-cooled setup.
