These colors are from the SERT.

The GS1000R (and XB1000R) was yellow and black, and when the SERT become the official team the GS1000R became blue and white, and suzuki kept this color for the first GSXR cause this bike was the first "race replica" and the first GIXXER was the replica of the GS1000R of the SERT (1984)

1983


1984


May be i make a mistake, and i will ask to a friend who is a specialist of suzuki. Normaly Yellow and black are the official suzuki colors ( like MX ), blue and white are SERT's colors, and red and black ares Yoshimura's colors... i will ask. And the price will be good wine cause my friend like that

bubu ...

I'm not saying the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team didn't use blue and white colours ...but.... just ask anyone who rides bikes - 'What colours do you associate with gixxers?'

....the answer will be 'Blue n White'. .....

Oh sorry a misunderstood... My english is not so good

Suzuki is not like honda, yamaha, kawasaki or ducati. So it is a bit difficult with the "official" colors.

No worries mate .... Your English is a lot better than my French ! Lol!

Like I said, this is not about 'Suzuki Official Colours' ..... but the colours associated with gixxers - the same as the Scottish Saltire.

Anyway ..I'm glad we cleared that up ! Lol!

Suzuki is a bit special, cause many different colors were used for the "official" team

Example :

the team heron with Barry Shene red/white/yellow/black
the team yoshimura Red/white/black
the SERT Blue/white
and many others... and all are "official"

It is more simple with Kawasaki, all are green when they are official lol.

For the GIXXER it is simple about the blue/white. The 750 (1985) was the official replica of the 1984 SERT GS1000R. The SERT for Suzuki Endurance Racing Team is a french team and it has been the official team of suzuki in endurance since 1983 if my memory is ok.

Dominique Meliand is the boss of the team, a really great team manager, and the GIXXER is for the suzuki the mirror of the endurance world championship, like the ZXR750 and the ZX7R for kawasaki, the RC30 and RC45 for honda, and the YZF 750 R for yamaha.

For Suzuki and kawasaki endurance is more important than the other championship.

But i agree GIXXER must be blue and white ( or replica like the Yosh anniversary for example - superb one!! )

It's ok ...coz everyone rides/drives on the wrong side of the road here...so it works fine ...except for the odd tourist who may insist on driving on the correct side... they soon learn though. I once met a woman in a car half way round a bend on my side of the road ...to her credit she swerved into a field instead of collecting me as a new hood ornament.

(and thanks, glad you like the pics)
