2015 Suzuki GSX-R600 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Own The Racetrack…

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. Commemorating Suzuki’s 2015 return to MotoGP racing, the new GSX-R600 is dressed in Suzuki Racing Blue to express Suzuki’s spirit and passion for racing.

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. The reason – each GSX-R 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.




2015 Suzuki GSX-R600 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

MotoGP Technology:
Lighter pistons and more aggressive valve lift curves enhance throttle response and produce stronger low-to-mid range torque. With a close ratio gearbox, this extra torque delivers better race starts, quicker acceleration and stronger drive out of the corners.

BREMBO Monoblock Radial Mount Calipers:
Provide more powerful and consistent braking with greater rigidity for better rider feedback. Reduced unsprung weight provides even better suspension performance.

SHOWA Big Piston Forks (BPF):
Quicker reacting with improved damping and more controlled compression under hard braking.

Race Proven Slipper Clutch:
Improves rear tyre grip and stability when approaching bends by reducing the pressure on the clutch pack under hard deceleration.

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector:
Two separate performance settings give instant control over the power delivery to suit different sections of the road or track.

3-Step Adjustable Footpegs:
Allows you to ride in the position that suits you best, providing greater comfort, control and reduces fatigue.

Compact, lightweight instrument cluster features an analog tachometer with LCD readouts of the speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS and gear position indicators. Also has a built-in lap timer/stopwatch and programmable engine RPM indicator.

Small, simple and lightweight bodywork featuring exciting, aerodynamic styling


 

2015 Suzuki GSX-R600 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE FEATURES
A 599cc, 4-cyclinder engine with a race-proven oversquare bore/stroke ratio is engineered for an exceptional high-revving performance.

Shot-peened conrods, chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes help ensure efficient performance.

Lightweight, durable forged pistons are designed with the Finite Element Method (FEM) and fatigue analysis technology and optimized camshaft profiles was developed using proven MotoGP racing technology.

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

Advanced, Suzuki race team-developed transistorized ignition control circuit helps maintain more precise ignition timing across the range of engine temperatures.

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

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

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase helps reduce friction, improve heat transfer, increase durability and provide better ring seal.

 

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

 

CHASSIS FEATURES
Race-developed, lightweight 41mm Showa Big Piston front-Fork (BPF) delivers superb feedback and consistent performance.

Lightweight and compact twin-spar aluminum cradle frame is made of five cast sections and cast swingarm.

An electronically Electronically controlled steering damper provides lighter steering at lower speeds and more damping force on the racetrack and at highway speeds.steering damper provides lighter steering at lower speeds and more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds.

Front brakes with fully floating 310mm discs and radial-mounted, four-piston Brembo monoblock calipers.

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

 

SUSPENSION
Three-way adjustable footpegs, adjustable shift lever, and short fuel tank help compose a comfortable riding position.

Compact, lightweight instrument cluster features an analog tachometer with LCD readouts of the speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS and gear position indicators. Also has a built-in lap timer/stopwatch and programmable engine RPM indicator.

Small, simple and lightweight bodywork featuring exciting, aerodynamic styling.
