SUZUKI OF­FER CHEAP THRILLS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

While most of the big Ja­panese man­u­fac­tur­ers were fly­ing with their su­per-sporty 750s and Honda were rewrit­ing the rule­book with their new 900cc Fire­Blade, Suzuki were busy trying to catch up. The GSX-R750 was still do­ing well but the firm could do lit­tle to com­bat the Blade or Honda's VFR750. En­ter the RF900. Hot on the heels of the RF600, the 900 of­fered awe­some all-round abil­ity at a de­cent price. Its £6799 pric­etag was £1300 cheaper than the Kawasaki ZX-9R... and it was pretty rapid. But, like the 600, the looks were a bit Blake's 7 and sates stut­tered. It lasted un­til 1999 and you can pick a tidy one up now for as lit­tle as £1500.
