2017 Suzuki GSX-R600 Review

2017 Suzuki GSX-R600 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Race-Winning GSX-R Heritage...

The Suzuki GSX-R600 is a class-leading sport bike worthy of its race-winning GSX-R heritage. Whether you’re carving through your favorite canyon or dominating the racetrack, it offers unparalleled performance. A compact, powerful 4-cylinder engine demonstrates the advanced race-proven technology of the GSX-R line when you hit the throttle and push it to redline, while supremely refined suspension systems front and rear help provide precise, responsive handling. Wrapped in aerodynamic and lightweight bodywork that’s lifted from the race track, the GSX-R600 can not only win races, it can win envy.

The Suzuki GSX-R600 continues its dominance in the AMA Pro Road Racing series, taking all 600cc championships in 2012 - including the Daytona Sportbike, Supersport West, and Supersport East. This further solidifies the GSX-R600 as part of a race-winning line of motorcycles from coast to coast.

In 2012, Suzuki celebrated the 1 millionth produced GSX-R motorcycle, a feat only accomplished with the support of fans, race teams, and dealers worldwide. To earn the rights as the top performer in its class, the GSX-R600 is developed with: an advanced race-proven 599cc, 4-cylinder, and liquid-cooled engine; a responsive, agile, and lightweight chassis; compact wheelbase; and race-developed suspension. In short, the GSX-R600 has once again proven to be the winning combination to Own The Racetrack.

A lightweight chassis featuring a compact wheelbase and race-developed suspension. A compact, powerful 4-cylinder engine delivering a real-world demonstration of advanced race-proven technology. The GSX-R600 - designed to be The Top Performer in its class, a total package designed to Own the Racetrack.

 




2017 Suzuki GSX-R600 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Fuel-injected 599cc, 4-cylinder, engine delivers a rush of power from idle to redline.

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) lets the rider tailor the power delivery.

Twin-spar aluminum frame and SHOWA big piston front fork delivers exceptional handling.

Twin BREMBO Monobloc, radially mounted, front brakes deliver strong stopping power.

Race-ready, iconic GSX-R styling delivers sharp looks and a slippery shape.


 

 

2017 Suzuki GSX-R600 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine Features
Compact 599cc 4-cylinder engine with a race-proven over-square bore/stroke ratio that produces remarkably strong high RPM power delivery.

The energy efficient engine employs forged pistons, shot-peened connecting rods, chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes to reduce frictional and mechanical losses.

Camshafts with aggressive valve-lift profiles were developed using proven MotoGP racing engine technology – the first time this method has been applied to a production Suzuki.

Lightweight titanium-alloy valves are controlled by single coil valve springs to reduce valve train mass, reducing mechanical losses at high RPM.

Lightweight and durable forged pistons were designed using the same Finite Element Method (FEM) and fatigue analysis technology used for MotoGP racing engines.

Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection uses eight, fine-spray 8-hole injectors for improved fuel atomization, which contributes to more complete combustion.

An Engine Control Module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has enhanced settings to suit the intake and exhaust systems, resulting in better fuel economy and linear throttle response.

Advanced, MotoGP-developed transistorized ignition control programming helps maintain more precise spark timing across the range of engine speed and temperature range.

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of two racing-developed engine control maps to suit road or track conditions, and personal tastes.

4-into-1 stainless-steel exhaust system with a titanium muffler is fitted with a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve that maximizes torque and improves throttle response, especially in the low-to-mid RPM range.

The close-ratio six-speed transmission features a taller first-gear ratio and shorter ratios for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th gear, making it easier for a racer to get a good start while improving straight-line acceleration and drive out of corners.

Race-proven back-torque-limiting clutch contributes to smoother downshifting and corner entry.

 

Chassis Features
Lightweight and compact twin-spar aluminum-alloy frame is constructed of five cast sections to produce a balance of light weight and strength.

The frame is mated with a cast aluminum swingarm and multi-piece rear sub-frame that’s ready for race-track adaptation.

4 Race-developed, lightweight SHOWA Big Piston front Forks (BPF) deliver superb feedback and consistent performance. Spring preload, rebound and compression damping are all fully adjustable.

5 Single SHOWA rear shock features externally adjustable rebound and compression damping, along with adjustable ride height.

6 Electronically controlled steering damper provides lighter steering at slower speeds and more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds.

Front brakes with fully floating 310mm discs are grasped by radial-mount, four-piston BREMBO monobloc calipers.

Three-spoke cast-aluminum-alloy wheels are shod with lightweight, high-grip front and rear tires for sharp handling.

Three-way adjustable footpegs, adjustable shift lever and short fuel tank help compose a comfortable riding position that permits the positions required for performance riding.

7 Compact, lightweight instrument cluster with a built-in lap timer/stopwatch and programmable engine RPM indicators to alert the rider to certain shift points.

Trim, simple and lightweight bodywork creates an exciting, aerodynamic style that truly works well at speed.

Distinctive multi-reflector headlight with vertically stacked high and low-beam halogen bulbs is centered between position lights on each side.

Bright, durable LED taillight, with clear lens.

The front turn signal are integrated into the rear-view mirrors while the rear tail section houses the rear signals.

The lightweight instruments also include an analog tachometer and LCD readouts that show speed, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS and gear position indicators.

Attention to rider comfort and confidence includes a carefully shaped seat with a high-grip cover.

The wheel rims have pin stripes punctuated by “R” logos that highlight the bike’s identity.

 

Suspension
Stylized Suzuki “S” 3-D emblems on the fuel tank and the fork upper bracket denotes the quality, sophistication and performance legacy of the brand.

Optional single seat cowl can replace the passenger seat for an even more aggressive look or for use on solo rides, or track days.

A variety of Genuine Suzuki Accessories for GSX-R owners are available including a large selection of Suzuki logo apparel.
