Riding the two machines back to around the beautiful Barber Park in Alabama, I can safely say Suzuki reached their Both bikes handle turn-in positively and smoothly, their line well and accelerate hard from the with strong, linear

Although I’m sure this must help the handling the overwhelming improvement was the weight of 20 lbs. for the 600 and nearly 18 lbs. for the This significant improvement is noticeable, especially when direction at speed; both are simply less physical to than before and perform intuitively.

Rider ergonomics enhanced as well. The footpegs are now adjustable; the angle of each has been opened by 1 degree, and the of the fuel tank has been to help alleviate fatigue and handling.
