SUZUKI GSX-R600 (2010)

Features and Benefits >

Suzuki carries on producing the GSX-R600 with little design tweaks and presents a new color range aimed at upgrading the bike’s exterior. This is the main 2010 strategy for the middleweight class (and not only) as manufacturers reunite with their drawing boards for future generation models.

In what concern’s this Gixxer’s design, it remains pretty much unchanged for 2010. In fact, ever since the 2006 redesign, they haven’t done much to it apart from modifying the headlight’s shape and creating that stylish looking exhaust. Still, Suzuki seems to have ridden the winds of change pretty good with this model, resulting into an aggressively styled piece of machinery with little in common with the one that first came out the factory gates back in 1992.

The front end is cockpit-aerodynamic with the headlight being perfectly integrated into the fairing and the signal lights into the mirrors supports. In fact, if you remove the mirrors and cover the headlight you’re in for a mean machine with pretty much nothing to distinguish it from a racing bike.

On the sides, the fairing has significantly slimmed-down compared to previous model years, contributing at cooling down the engine and making the bike lighter overall. On the right side, the lower part of the fairing blends perfectly in with the exhaust’s covering plate, creating the look of these two units being actually one.

The gas tank is very narrow while the seat isn’t as inclined as you would expect from a bike in its category and that can only mean enhanced comfort. What I like about the GSX-R series is that they don’t feature the sharp rear end, leaving room for a passenger to decently find its place on it.

Depending on the color scheme, you get a black or blue powdercoated frame, matching perfectly with 2010’s Blue/White, Blue/Silver schemes.

Like Kawasaki, Suzuki did its best in keeping the 600cc sport bike decently priced and has actually achieved the same “performance” as Kawi along time. So in 2010, although the MSRP for the Suzuki GSX-R600 is yet to be announced, we reckon it will stay under $11K.

If we turn back and look at Suzuki’s strategy for the GSX-R600 we can clearly notice that the next major revision awaiting is in 2011. But the question is: what more can be done to the most advanced middleweight model of this Nippon maker?
