Suzuki GSX-R600

The Suzuki GSX-R 600 is another 600cc super-sport motorcycle you can still buy in 2018. Although the current model hasn’t changed for over a year a indicates that it’s still a competitive package for the motorcyclist that likes a bit of a race bike style ride and who want to go production motorcycle racing. That said only Yamaha has updated their 600cc Super sports.

In terms of design the GSX-R600 looks good in a traditional  sports bike style.  In fact it is virtually identical to the GSX-R750 but that shouldn’t be surprising and neither design have changed for a couple years. One of the reasons for that is the 600cc sports bike class in 2016-2017 has experiencing a significant drop in popularity.

In terms engines and technical features, there is nothing new or revolutionary. Many also attribute the lack of technical progress in the last two years is caused by stricter emissions laws that come into effect next year and that doesn’t just effect the GSX-R600 but every other 600cc spots motorcycle.

Historically Suzuki Motorcycles have always been sportier than it’s competitors as a road motorcycle. They always had harder suspension, more power at the top end of the rev range as the specs shows. If you are that sort of rider then this the GSX-R600 is for you and I did have one for many years.

Once again nothing further I can add to my impressions of the 2018 Suzuki GSX-R600. The best selling point of the GSX-R600 is the price. As I write this the GSX-R600 sells for under $14,000 on the road and even when not on sale is still priced well for a Super Sports 600c  in Australia.
