In a category where the Yamaha R6 doesn’t even get on the podium, you know that the standards are high. So congratulations to Suzuki’s GSX-R600 for taking the honours.

The GSX-R was relaunched this year and as a pure sports bike it cannot be beaten. Even the Honda CBR600 Sport, which is a fantastic bike, just fails to match it for both character and performance.

1, Suzuki GSX-R600

2. Honda CBR600 Sport

3. Kawasaki ZX-6R

Shortlisted: Yamaha R6
