Special edition GSX-Rs

Published: 27 October 2004

Suzuki is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the GSX-R with two special edition versions of the seminal sports bike.

The firm is releasing a limited-edition run of the GSX-R750 and GSX-R600 with a special paint scheme that harks back to the first GSX-R750 from 1985 as well as a host of other features including an embossed key and a 20th anniversary emblem and serial number on the headstock.

The bikes will get iridium spark plugs that last up to 20,000 miles, crash bungs, a tinted screen, gold anodised chain adjuster and a blue chain to match the paint scheme.

The brakes on the bikes will be upgraded with disks that Suzuki describes as “vortically grooved” featuring grooves in the surface to help cooling and make the bikes look damn good. The curved radiator from the 750 will also be fitted to the 600.

Check out the October 27 edition of MCN, out now, for the full story plus the first test of the 2005 Yamaha R6 (see related stories, right).
