As I struggled to find the correct for this article, I also to see where the new Suzuki … fit in the model range. GSR 600 is the perfect to Honda Hornet, Yamaha FZ6 and Kawasaki Z750. However in own model range there’s a GSF 650 and already and that would to be enough middleweights for any manufacturer.

It is expected that GSR 600 is the Bandit 650 but Suzuki just forgot to the long serving Bandit its model range.

GSR 600 nimble and light with a slightly better than the K5 at least when standing Before the fuel injection to annoy me, I noticed how brilliant the is on this new middleweight from The swing-arm is based on that of the new 600.

However it is built for the GSR as it’s got a cut out where the exhaust are heading up beneath the pillion It’s still really and far superior to that offered by the competition. GSR 600 really handles so that it surprised me as being the entertaining bike this on my usual route home.

Certainly more entertaining Yamaha’s new R6 that I rode on very roads only two before. With the 98bhp it is never going to generate any top spe eds close to a full on supersport. But else the performance is perfectly for the roads you’d spend of the time on.

The engine still plenty of revs, but less a supersport. Just around rpm is where the engine is at its most and also where the power and peaks within 1,000 rpm each other. This is you want to be when going for good drive out of the corners.

As as you let the revs settle down too that fuel injectio n annoying with a jerk is just too much to forgive Particularly for town riding, and generally where you want to use the lower end of the power band it is a Not a problem bigger than a of clutch can’t fix, but annoying.

For this reason I preferred to use the a bit more on high revs I at first intended. Since the GSR so well this was not a problem and I was tackling the tightest hair-bend quicker than anything this year. The very and grippy Bridgestone BT014’s a lot-particularly as the suspension is in perfect with the tyres and balanced

The styling and mass centralisation has how the bike looks at the front end a wide front part of the tank where the blinkers are nicely. This gives the MV look where Mr Tamburini has this look so natural. On a few … bikes the radiator out and just looks out of place.

The GSR looks right, maybe too perfect which can make it loo k a bit after you have seen a For me the swing arm is the highlight, whilst for the rear end with the exhaust and lights does the trick. is that Suzuki GB and other almost had to force through the of such a heavily braced arm. GSR 600 would not have as good as it is without it.

The front console design is another MV Agusta rip-off. But it’s a rip off than Yamaha’s FZ6. And sure you study those blinkers too. Nice!

waiting for a bigger GSR from there’s bound to be a few hooligans out considering the GSR 600. I can tell you it is than the Hornet, FZ6 and Z750 to on one wheel. The fact it is light better handling than the with its aluminium frame and perfect tyres and overall makes naughty easy.

Even though both the front fork and brakes less flashy than the of the design, you can still rest these are quality components the previous generation sports It is not that many years ago the best sports bikes the very same items. pot Tokico’s and 43mm telescopic with adjustable preload is enough on the GSR 600.

There is a lack of power in the brakes and the dry weight has been kept both suspension and brakes effortlessly as they should.

On the a few high frequency vibrations can be which again blurs the Every bloody car in the mirrors like they have got blue lights. This is a problem and the best would be to get rid of the mirrors and at the same time the The vibrations can mostly be felt at the and almost nothing at the well foot pegs. Luggage is a bit of a problem on the GSR 600.

Even GSX-R1000 has got more for tools and maybe a raincoat the pillion seat than GSR It is something as unusual as a Japanese with very few compromises. and aesthetics is in abundance, even Suzuki has not gone absolutely as far as could have with machine.

I’ll give it a though.


Apart a very disappointing fuel jerkiness and high frequency to the handlebars and mirrors GSR 600 is a great in-line four. It is such fun to trash around and weighs than its strongest competitor, Z750. Imagine how a GSR 750 would be… At the time it has got more power and chassis than the two other in-line fours.

Great job Suzuki, but better fix fuelling as soon as possible!

(in particular that swing-arm)
