First Ride: 2006 GSR 600

Posted: 16 November 2005

the surface of the new Suzuki GSR hides a little nastier and more fun just another …

It’s also a little than simply a Yamaha Hornet clone or a production of Suzuki’s own B-King concept

Not quite a B-King. but better a Bandit

Y’see, by day the GSR is a well-mannered around town, content to about in the first half of the giving a gentle doff of his to the ladies as they pass by.

But the Suzuki GSR has the heart from the which makes him a bit of Dr Jeckyl and Mr kinda guy. So from on the tacho — around — is where Mr Hyde out to play, bursting towards a peak power of around at about 12,500rpm from my dyno-arse.* If this all sounds it is. Bloody good fun, but this Mr Hyde does a problem.

He strains at the leash in meaning that if you’re not on the throttle openings, you’ll a disconcerting lurch backwards or depending on whether the throttle is opened or closed. This is all the more stranger as the GSX-R600 is normally as slippery-smooth as an oiled

The fun really starts at 10,500rpm.

The changes include different gearing to take advantage of (38mm rather than the throttle bodies compared to the GSX-R600, so maybe here is the blame lies? Either it’s not enough to turn you off the it just annoys.

Handling is good too, benefiting being a little more than most nakeds, the front forks having adjustment and the rear Kayaba being adjustable for rebound and Brakes are the same as the ‘old’ of 2000-2003 vintage, which that they work enough, even if they’re not brilliant.For the practical among the clocks boast an LCD fuel two trips, a clock a splendid indicator and digital speedo. strapping shite to the pillion could well scratch the as even after removing the I couldn’t see any bungee points away.

Twisted thinking. great for modification

But it’s the looks that make this bike a to the budding Streetfighter owner. like the Hornet before it, is enough as standard, but better is a blank canvas for the middle-weight modifier. Check out the myriad of out there on the streets with swingers, paint-jobs, tuned trick suspension and you’ll what I’m getting at.

Now of the Suzuki GSR with a decent job (sadly the UK are only getting black and blue, not red), down front forks, brakes, GSX-R throttle loud under-seat exhausts. the goes on.

Getting it over. and crying out for down forks

Suzuki GB sell the GSR alongside that old fave the Bandit for the foreseeable They also haven’t an on-the-road price yet for the bike, but better pick the right one if want to sell lots of If it’s around the same as the (5199) it’ll be just the side of a bargain.

*Suzuki has yet to any power figures for the bike.
