Exclusive: 2004 Suzuki GSX-R600

1 of 1

The 2004 Suzuki GSX-R600 is exclusively revealed in this week’s MCN, out today.

With the 2003 version lagging behind in the latest sales figures, the new version will be a smaller replica of the all-conquering GSX-R1000. It’ll also be lighter, to bring it in line with suggested new lower weight limits for World Supersport racing.

The bike will get an extra 5bhp, an all-new stiffer chassis and styling to echo it’s bigger 1000cc brother. The current Suzuki is already the quickest 600cc bike on track, but the renovation to the three-year-old design should also make it better on the road and return it to the front of the supersports pack.

To read more about the new Supersports contender, see MCN, June 11. And to tell us what you think of the new design, post a message on the News board by following the link on the right.
