Hasegawa 1/12 Suzuki GSX-R750(G) (GR71G) (21741)

This time we are going to talk about Hasegawa 1/12 Suzuki GSX-R750(G) (GR71G) (21741). Kit comes as the new release from the famous Japanese manufacturer. It is molded in popular scale and would let you build a copy of the classic sports bike in a typical scale. Moreover, we get this boxing as "Limited Edition", so there are new decals for red/blue type of paintwork. There are 166 parts which should assemble into a model with 177 mm length. Packaging is typical, all frames are sealed into one plastic bag. Let's open them and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with another Suzuki in the same scale.

We are going to start with the white frame where you will find various external parts as well as front fork sections. Note that fuel tank should be glued out of two halves.

Next we see the first grey sprue with various drivetrain parts. I like that frame comes as two large parts which should be connected together. There are guiding pins which will help you with this.

The same color was used for the next sprue, where you will find engine parts. Here you will have to plan all the painting steps in advance.

Here you can take a closer look at premolded details. In my opinion they look top notch and deserve a careful painting and weathering.

Next we return back to white plastic. I recommend to drill all holes in the brake discs for even more realistic appearance.

Whole cowling should be glued out of separate panels. Note that rear swingarm also comes in white plastic. :)

It is good to see that Hasegawa supplies front section of the fairing as the single-piece part. Such design will help you avoid unnecessary gaps and seams.

Chrome frame is not that big. You will find reflectors and mirrors here. Some modelers would be fine with that as they usually strip the standard parts.

Separate plastic bag is given for a vinyl tube, several screws and metal spring. All those will come handy for fine features on your model.

Clear frame comes in another bag in order to avoid possible scratches. Note that windscreen still somehow got scratched a bit. Molding quality looks great, but there are no masks in this set.

Here you can take a look at pictures of the finished model.

Vinyl tires look ok. This is a typical part of such kit.

Decals sheet looks a bit thick, so be ready to use decals softener for a bit more convincing appearance. Assembly manual comes in black-and-white print. You can check all pages in the video-review.

Today's kit comes as yet another version of the nice model from Hasegawa. In my opinion it should turn into a great copy of the famous Japanese bike. As you saw in the review, manufacturer didn't skip on the features, so you can even expose internals by leaving one of the fairings off the bike. It is also good to see plastic parts in white color as such components should be easier to paint and achieve the necessary shade. The only thing I would like to see on such model - single-piece tank instead of two-piece assembly which will require some sanding to be done.


  • Good molding quality
  • Clever parts division
  • Great decals


  • No masks for clear parts
