I liked the comfy seat of this bike. Great for up to 3 hours riding. I also liked that the seat was low at 31", so easy to reach the ground. I got up to 55 mpg out of this bike. I liked the bigger fuel tank at 5.3 gallons versus 3-3,5 for some other bikes. Can go longer during filling up. I got... read more
I liked the comfy seat of this bike. Great for up to 3 hours riding. I also liked that the seat was low at 31", so easy to reach the ground. I got up to 55 mpg out of this bike. I liked the bigger fuel tank at 5.3 gallons versus 3-3,5 for some other bikes. Can go longer during filling up. I got 200-250 miles average per tank. Not much maintenance clean the carbs every 2 years along with regular oil changes. That's about it.

I use to have a GSXR 750, but as the age going up the machine have to be more comfortable. So as I was looking around for something a bit less sporty I find my GSX 750F. I loved it from the start.

Had a lot of bikes - very fast Kawasaki's - Big tourers FJ1200 etc but traded my RF900 for the GSXF 2 years ago and never regreted it. I've done 25000 miles to date with no problems. It will cruise all day at 100mph if required, 2 up and with fully loaded panniers and return 45mpg. As a sports... read more
Had a lot of bikes - very fast Kawasaki's - Big tourers FJ1200 etc but traded my RF900 for the GSXF 2 years ago and never regreted it. I've done 25000 miles to date with no problems. It will cruise all day at 100mph if required, 2 up and with fully loaded panniers and return 45mpg. As a sports tourer, it combines 300+ miles per day comfort with good handling on the twisty's. This year (2004) I've toured Scotland (August) Did the D-Day landings in Normandy (June) Use it for work (300 miles a day) I think you get the point - this bike does everything I need. Highly Recommended.

The 2004 Katana 750 was my first bike ever. I was told to start off with a starter bike and then advance up the ladder with the big boys in the future. I absolutely love the power it has, including the comfort and the way it handles off of curves. The seat/trunk space, used with a net, is a great asset for carrying school materials. Overall, an excellent bike to have and show off to the public, you will not be disappointed with this baby, it rocks.

It was brand new off the show room floor only 3 miles. Anyway, I am a new rider to the sport. I took a motorcycle training class, and had little experience on bikes. I shopped around, looking at many bikes. From the GSXR-750 to the Honda Superhawk, and the Yamaha Z's. However, my needs and my wants were totally opposite. I wanted a bike to have fun, look cool, pick up a few chicks and be safe. Not to race, pop wheelies and be the talk of the town. In my mind I thought I could handle and really needed a supersport bike. Although, anyone can start out on anybike, some of the supersport bikes are too powerful for new riders. Trust me, a bad case of "road rash" is not cool. The GSX 750F Katana won't beat a GSX-R 600, 750, 1000 or a Haybusa out the starting blocks. But you will be able to more than keep up on the long and hard rides. It is more comfortable for longer rides than the supersports. The overall cost and insurance are remarkable. So if you like the sport, tired of being on the sideline, want to be cool and have fun, withought hurting your pockets and your butt, go with a bike that is easy to handle, has plenty of power, and is cool to look at. You can always upgrade!

This is only my second bike, but I don't know why anybody would want anything else. The bike is really comfortable when it's just me and also when my wife comes along. It has a very smooth ride from start to finish. I would really recommend this bike for an intermediate rider who enjoys comfort as well as speed, because it has both. I can see this bike as the one that I enjoy riding for years to come, as opposed to one that I want to trade in for a bigger bike.

I test rode a GSX750F in 2001 and I was very disappointed - poor build quality, paint finish was crap, ride was full of vibration, the bike was extremely clunky in the gear department. I was very unimpressed. I then was convinced to ride the 2004 model and what do you know - the ride was great (no vibes), the finish was spot on with build quality, as well as the metallic blue paint - it seems Suzuki had done some homework and done some work on the old GSX750F. Ride was great (though a higher screen would be needed), speed was not like your 600CC rockets but who needs to do 300km/hr commuting to work - the speed was fine for me and the torque was what I really needed in traffic conditions - and to boot the seat is an all-in-one so I can get another sheepskin seat cover for my boney butt. So of course I bought one with a Yoshi pipe, higher dark-smoke screen, Mongoose alarm fitted and the sheepskin seat cover. This is what I term an all-rounder machine for everyday riding and handles the spot of weekend touring extremely well. Thumbs up to Suzuki for finally giving the old girl that extra love it needed to make it a better bike for me. The only downer is that I will have to get a rear hugger down the track - cosmetic changes only - the bike is first class and the budget was not killed. Also, if you're from OZ Australia the insurance is heaps cheaper than those crotch rocket 600's out there.

I just purchased the Suzuki Katana 750, and have fallen in love. The bike has style, comfort, and power to boot! First gear, roll back, and hold on! The bike does not have a real sport lean, making for a more comfortable ride, but still has the room to lie down on the tank for the "warp speed" it can produce. Very fun, very rider friendly. A 5-star all around!!
