Suzuki’s new GSX-R600 is lighter, has more midrange torque and extra revs, but can it beat the competition from both Japan and the UK?

Senior road tester Michael Neeves is on his way to the south of France to find out. He’ll be riding each bike on the legendary Route Napoleon, one of the most challenging bike routes in Europe along with guest tester and GP winner Simon Crafar.
