Suzuki GSX R-600

So there I was out to Sunny California to go test the new Gixxer 1000 and 600. to California, they said. weather, they said.

it rained and rained, consequently, we back with some soggy pic’s of the 600 and no real impression. So here’s a Sunny review, where tires are and sticky and the sun is always, always Mike Emery

I tell you what; it’s a little ridiculous lately to stay on top of the 600-class pecking It’s almost as up-to-the-minute as the computer industry. This to be the name of the game in the 600 arms

The cold war may be over, but the mid-size wars are just shifting high gear. It’s a bit of a for the sportbike buyer, no sooner you laid down your earned dosh on a new steed, a rival manufacturer goes out the specific intention to out do it.You can’t buy a bad motorcycle anymore Some are just better the next, and usually only better at that.

We’ve all the tough talk. We’ve how the GSXR 750 compares to the open What can the new middleweight Suzook do?

the moment you take a seat on 600 Supersport class bike it immediately apparent that bike has one singular purpose: To win and dominate any asphalt skirmish.

Starting with the seating it is either perfect or torturous, on your point of view or or not you are a strapping young buck myself) or a tired old geriatric Emery, who should really be a VFR anyway.

Air flow over the seems to relieve a lot of the weight placed on your wrists lead to fatigue. The windshield is than last years’ but much bigger than the piece of glass on some of other 600′s.

This was designed to go fast though, very fast indeed, a given racetrack or a tasty of your favorite uninhabited road. All other considerations, as wind protection, long pillion seat comfort, or economy become quickly

Banked over on its ear at silly angles, it is completely stable. through the front Showa conventional fork gives you knowledge of what’s going on where the rubber meets the The confidence you get out of the front of this is simply magnificent!

In my mind, is by far the best fork on any current mass production sportbike, any doubt.

Stability is the key word There is nothing you can do to upset motorcycle. With the wheelbase out almost an inch over years’ model, any of the occasional associated with that when being pushed hard, has completely vanished. will knock this off line.

Not mid-corner ripple bumps, not pavement at the exit, not running small animals while through your neighborhood,

This bike has huge top potential too, if the motor can all that gearing. A little top testing of my own has the optimistic digital reading 164 mph with the motor pulling hard in sixth short of redline. It’s how little time and distance bike requires to reach its velocity.

Run it in deep, too. Go on, be a wuss. Run it in even deeper, the just begs for more. “Is all you got”? It seems to ask as you realize you could have easily another 20 feet before on the front binders.

Those big discs, the biggest on the front of any 600, slow the bike so aggressively it’s like a 3 wire on the USS Nimitz. It’s easy to modulate though.

on the deck, steady as the rock of she is, start to pick up the throttle and the is flawless, enabling you to feed in the much earlier than you have ever imagined on any bike. The motor, obviously not for torque, absolutely comes on top as it screams to it’s 14,500 rpm with a blast of horsepower and disregard for the laws of physics or reciprocating mass.

It’s flexible too! The fuel injection is flawless. At low RPM the will pick up revs complaint and accelerate briskly when well out of the powerband. And it does reach the powerband, on, because it’s now in full mode like no other 600 it, it’s unicycle time.

more than ample on tap for the previously mentioned unicycling in first or second.

The close six-speed transmission is typical Read light and smooth, precise shifts an afterthought than deliberate movements of left foot. Even at terminal velocity, it is still very hard as the ram air system is living up to its end of the bargain.

The brand new the ground up 2001 model virtually no similar part between itself and it’s sibling and it shows with a 32 wet weight reduction. This weight loss is felt when changing direction, or decelerating.

Just as the GSXR had to the full frontal assaults Honda and more directly, she heads back to the gym on a serious loss program and emerges that 32 pounds shaved the already svelte body. Put the two together alongside each and the differences can be seen instantly. The new looks much smaller and much sleeker than the version. It appears the old girl has let go a little bit in the last few years, as the babe is ooh, so much

So it’s slim, it’s has hidden muscle. How much you Earlier model Gixxers in the neighborhood of 89 to 90 bhp at the rear wheel.

The edition is pumping out a Tyrannosaurus 100+ rear wheel stock at the rear Dunlop. is tremendous horsepower for a stock and 10 to 14 more than the previous bike. With that Suzuki becomes the first to break the magical 100 horsepower with a stock 600.

cookies all around!

The 2001′snewfound while not quite up to Kawi standards, is still markedly than the previous generation’s “is thing on?” midrange. The bike will simply and provide more than thrust to get in and out of Disney World I had no trouble merging into 70 mph from 45 mph in fifth gear.

is obviously not in 1000 territory, but enough for me to merge my aforementioned all the way over to the fast lane disrupting the flow of traffic.

Suzuki has succeeded big time this bike’s design which were obviously to the best track scalpel on the market. If your goal is to go fast around your racetrack, or just super on your next Sunday then this is the 600 for you. bike is everything the previous 600 have been.

It now possesses the that fabulous chassis so deserved; only the chassis is now as good as it used to be too.

The then? Well there seem to be an annoying amount of lash still present. And I feel that I need to the (sometimes, not so fresh) riding again.

Actually, I believe I did. Also a slight can also be felt, mostly the footpegs, when droning in top gear (at the posted speed of course!) after about a hour or so.So, is this edition of the GSXR 600 really much better than the Depends on whom you ask.

I previously owned a pair of generation GSXR 600s, with a 2000 R6, and a whole of Honda 600s before including the original Hurricane, the F2, and the evolutionary F3. I have no allegiance to any brand over another. now it is hard to argue against though.

They have stepped up to the and are here to play hardball their stunning GSX-R
