The iconic Suzuki GT750 is a motorcycle that all of us in Kettle Club have grown to love, cherish and ride!
You don’t have to own a Kettle to become a member, just a healthy interest in this classic Suzuki is that’s all required.
In standard guise with its large radiator and massive chrome 3 – 4 exhaust system they attract a lot of attention and admiration. Though a little soft in its ride they are extremely comfortable and capable touring machines. Indeed the names suggests this from the Suzuki range of the 1970’s , a Grand Tourer 750cc 2 stroke.
Actually a 738cc engine from the days of flared trousers , platform boots and mini skirts ( nice ) – and Barry Sheene.
With its 68bhp it’s not going to worry many people but it does require a firm grip when riding through twisty B roads. You get a full appreciation of this torque filled engine as you accelerate. It’s a fantastic feeling and rewards its owner with that great howl from the engine!
The vast majority of owners prefer to keep their bikes in standard trim and will go to extraordinary lengths to keep them as Suzuki built them. From 1972 to 1977 these bikes rolled off the production line and out to the world. So here we are some forty years later and we still love them!
There remains a cult following throughout the world for the Suzuki GT750 and whether you call yours a Kettle or a Water Buffalo we remain devoted to this fantastic motorcycle.
Members and Owners alike ride and restore, show and compete all over the world. From Finland to New Zealand. From Canada to Australia . Throughout main land Europe and Great Britain the ‘song remains the same’. Listen to the bike with its standard exhaust system for that lovely burble or hear it through a set of screaming expansion chambers. J models to B models , Dunstalls , or Roca’s , Specials, Sanders & Lewis the range of Kettle ownership attracts a broad spectrum of enthusiasts.
The club sell items of Regalia, provides discounts, a quarterly magazine and advise to new members and old. Shows and events are regularly supported by The Kettle Club and area meetings in the UK are enhanced with trips to Europe. The Kettle Club is a voluntary organisation with its AGM held in July. The club exists for the Suzuki GT750 and is supported by a loyal group of members that have a passion for a bike they enjoy to ride, show and maintain.
We hope you enjoy the site and its areas and look forward to you joining the Kettle Club very soon!
