A potent bike with more a thing or two left to prove in its the Gixxer 600 is a beast backed up by the fuel-injected 599cc, four-…, DOHC engine that is valued through a six-speed both units working together to power smoothly the and nimble chassis out of those corners of the track.

Most to do that will have the Suzuki Dual Throttle system featuring dual injectors instead of one. the rider will be choosing three engine settings by the S-DMS engine management

Without a doubt, the GSX-R stand out from any angle, but important is what keeps it on the goodies such as the light frame, Showa suspensions and brakes. But what about bike’s past?


started production of the GSX-R 600 bike in 1992 to satisfy the request of a more docile compared to the GSX-R 750 model. what that means is you would have the same specifications only that on a 599cc one. As a result, the inline-four, DOHC, 16 valves produced 106hp at 12,600rpm.

The carried on without changes in and then production was stopped for the three years.

In 1997, the marked its comeback with a redesigned engine featuring the (Suzuki Ram Air Direct) system. The number would have decreased to 97hp at 12,100rpm for engine life, but the bike as fast as always due to the 75 lbs weight Also, the new Suzuki looked way refined than when it was introduced, leaving no doubts it would carry on with no this time.

The 1998 model year was without any changes brought to it.

But for things were about to go in the the motorcycle press anticipated. The low was still a thing the GSX-R 600 brag about only it was now moved by a greater stud: at 11,800rpm. That year a big evolutionary step and the bikes then are recognized by their paint schemes.

Except lightening that yellow the year 2000 brought new to this Suzuki.

A major was planned for the 2001 Suzuki involving a redesigned exterior and a powerful engine. The first had the of lightening the bike to 359 lbs (pretty compared to the previous 383 lbs) of course, making it sharper while the technical modifications to that water-cooled 599cc DOHC, 16 valves engine in 115hp at 13,000rpm.

Lighter, aggressive, both in style and the middleweight Suzuki sport didn’t reserve any upgrades for the two years. From 2002 we can the GSX-R600 M Telefonica while brought the GSX-R600 Z Alstare.

As you know, 2004 was a big year for and that reflected on the bike we today. Entirely new, the features a 15mm narrower black-coated frame, 20mm at the knees fuel tank, closer together footpegs, inverted 43mm front as well as a new rear shock. the front braking system now four-piston radical-mount front calipers actuated by a radial-piston cylinder.

By now, the engine produced at 13,000rpm. Color schemes were Black/Red, Blue/White,

The 2005 model year on with only new graphics to it.

For 2006, Suzuki prepared a new and chassis, both being and sharper performing. The seat was (15mm) and the entire bike was (also with 15mm) the new fuel injection system twin injectors for greater The redesigned fairing improved and the instrument cluster now featured a position indicator.

Colors were: White/Blue, Red/Black, Silver/White.

The 2007 model was Blue/White, Red/White, Black/Matte and Blue/Black.

The highest level of was achieved on the 2008 model This is when the bike significant revisions to the chassis and to the fuel injection system the exhaust was now the coolest ever on a Suzuki bike and it also did the job Horsepower remains the same, but change into Blue/White, White/Silver and Black/Matte Black.

color schemes were Blue/White, Orange/Black and White.

Suzuki may claim to have the highest level of development but that is only when to the different stages it has gone over the years. In relation to the of the Japanese middleweight crowd, the 600 is just a strong competitor.

For example the 2010 Honda CBR 600 RR ABS is an threat for the Suzuki, especially now it has significantly evolved. Engineers developed a new, electronically Combined ABS system which be standard on the bike and will intervene in the very last before the rider will lose the bike during a speed corner. This confidence and support, resulting in lap times.

It also ads 10kg to bike’s mass, but the fuel-injected liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder is there to keep performance at the same level as last (118hp at 13,500rpm and 66Nm at

Like Suzuki, Yamaha thoroughly revise its 2010 sport model, the YZF-R6. but lengthened the muffler, revised the ECU and new color schemes to the high-performance Raven, Team Yamaha and Pearl White. So the R6 remains the awesome performer behind sits the also fuel-injected liquid-cooled, four-…, forward-inclined four-cylinder engine. This 129hp at 14,500rpm and 65.8Nm at so everybody should watch out for it.

new for 2009, the Kawasaki Ninja now carries on with little brought to the 599cc, four-…, DOHC, four valves per inline-four engine and aluminum frame as well as high-performance and brakes. The Kawi weighs 421.2 lbs and with an MSRP of it stands great chances to be the in its class.


In what concerns Gixxer’s design, it remains much unchanged for 2010. In ever since the 2006 they haven’t done to it apart from modifying the shape and creating that looking exhaust. Still, seems to have ridden the of change pretty good this model, resulting an aggressively styled piece of with little in common the one that first came out the gates back in 1992.

The end is cockpit-aerodynamic with the headlight perfectly integrated into the and the signal lights into the supports. In fact, if you remove the and cover the headlight you’re in for a machine with pretty nothing to distinguish it from a bike.

On the sides, the fairing has slimmed-down compared to previous years, contributing at cooling the engine and making the bike overall. On the right side, the part of the fairing blends in with the exhaust’s covering creating the look of these two being actually one.

The gas is very narrow while the isn’t as inclined as you would from a bike in its category and can only mean enhanced What I like about the series is that they feature the sharp rear leaving room for a passenger to find its place on it.

Depending on the scheme, you get a black or blue frame, matching perfectly 2010’s Blue/White, Blue/Silver

Press Reviews

Putting to the ground on the Suzuki has never an issue and most all commended its but when it comes to the “exhilaration and sheer speed, the GSX-R is to show signs of its age. it was slightly updated last this basic platform has around since 2005.

More impressive is how the middleweight pulls from the smaller on the legible tachometer. Midrange now likely exceeds the Kawi and even the trick new R6, though my dyno still says the is the 599cc bike to beat in respect. motorcycle

Suzuki have played around the engine but instead of seeking performance they have to make the engine more friendly by increasing low to midrange They have also to fit the Suzuki Drive Mode a three way power mode designed to restrict power for the capabilities. MCN

This is an effortless and seamless that creates a fantastic and has a furious mien. Beyond the performance, the new GSX-R600 handles and continually asks the rider to it harder. motorcycledaily


Kawasaki, Suzuki did its best in the 600cc sport bike priced and has actually achieved the “performance” as Kawi along So in 2010, the Suzuki GSX-R600 at $10,399.


If we turn and look at Suzuki’s strategy for the 600 we can clearly notice that the major revision awaiting is in But the question is: what more can be to the most advanced middleweight of this Nippon maker?
