The GSX-R received a new stronger frame which increased the weight and new fairings with a lower wheelbase once again to create a more stable and better handling bike. The model also got slingshot carburetors, polished chrome silencers, curved radiator, Tokico 4-cylinder front brake calipers and a rear hugger mudguard. The new 4 into 2 exhaust was designed to create more midrange torque but this had only a marginal effect on the engines power.
A sports production model was introduced (SP) which incorporate among other things no passenger foot pegs and the rear shocks were visible under the seat.
