Suzuki GSX-R 600
Following the successful launch of the 25th anniversary GSX-R750 last month, Suzuki GB unveiled the second model in the exclusive trilogy this week with the limited edition GSX-R600.
It comes with an exclusive colour scheme replicating the 1999 factory machine, like its larger sibling the GSX-R600 will be limited to just 25 models.
Featuring a Yoshimura exhaust, exclusive top yoke plaque and certificate, the GSX-R600 will come with a recommended retail price of £8,799.
Enjoying great success on the roads and track since its introduction in 1997, the GSX-R600 took Fabrizio Pirovano to the World Supersport Championship title just two years after its launch, repeating the feat with Stephan Chambon the following year before going on to secure the world manufacturers title in 2002. At home, Michael Laverty secured the British Supersport Championship in 2007 with Bruce Anstey taking the GSX-R600 to a TT Supersport win one year later.
The bikes will be available for reservation from 1st April.
