Prodigy frontman and Suzuki fan, Keith Flint, finally got the chance to put his new 2011 GSX-R750 through its paces last month, as he joined Suzuki customers for the first GSX-R track day of the year at Brands Hatch in Kent.
Flint, who races a specially prepared GSX-R1000 in the Hottrax Endurance Championship, took delivery of the new 750 last month, with the initial intention of turning it into a special track bike, but after riding it on the road, quickly decided to use it for the big road trips he has planned this summer.
Talking about the new GSX-R750, Flint said,”I’ve had a string of GSX-Rs over the years and with the 750 renowned for offering the perfect balance of power and handling, when I heard about the new one, I had to have it. I spoke with Michael Neeves at Motorcycle News about it after the launch and knew it was the right choice, so got my name down sharpish. The plan was to race it, but when I realised what a good road bike it is too, I decided to leave it in road trim a little longer ready for the trips to Le Mans and the TT that I have planned with my mates.”
The 2011 GSX-R750 boasts an incredible 8kg weight reduction over its predecessor and offers Showa Big Piston Forks as standard and Brembo’s infamous Monoblock Calipers. Combined with the legendary 750cc engine, the 2011 GSX-R750 offers the perfect balance of power and control.
The next GSX-R Track Day takes place on 4th July at Snetterton, with a star-studded line-up planned once again. For more information on the days, run in association with Focused Events please visit http://www.focusedevents.com or call 08450 254797, quoting ‘GSX-R’.
