Suzuki entered the 1970's with a well regarded range of high performance two strokes headed by the durable T500, however the advent of the CB750 and the imminent release of the Z900 had changed the nature of the motorcycle market, particularly in the States, with riders expecting greater sophistication and performance. The introduction, during 1971, of the GT750J caused a sensation. Suzuki's entry into the superbike market was at the time the largest capacity production two stroke available with a specification that had previously been the preserve of the race track. The water cooled triple was housed in a conventional tubular cradle frame with telescopic forks and pivoted fork rear suspension. A four leading shoe front brake graced the front end and a three into four exhaust system ejected the triples blue haze. The "J" was replaced in 1973 by the "K" series machines, equipped with twin disc brakes at the front end and was followed in 1974 by the "L" series machines which featured revised side panels and a restyled exhaust. The subsequent "M" and "A" series machines of 1975 and 1976 were largely the same as the "L" except for changes to the graphics and small detail amendments, however, the final "B" series machines introduced for 1977, adopted a new front mudguard, revised indicators, headlight and rear light unit and black sidepanels. The three cylinder configuration endowed the machine with an exceptionally smooth power delivery, testers often likening it to a turbine, which endeared it to riders seeking a long distance mount rather than an outright sports bike.

This late, unrestored, example, finished in blue is described by the vendor as being good condition in respect of the engine, transmission, electrical system and cycle parts. It is offered with a Swansea V5C.
