2014 Suzuki GSX-R600

Posted on by  

The Suzuki GSX-R600 has already proven its value and in at the moment is considered one of the best models in its class.

At the heart of the motorcycle lies a 599 cc, four cylinder engine which breaths through a 4-into-1 stainless-steel exhaust system. The engine is kept in leash by a six-speed close-ratio transmission that features vertically staggered shafts to reduce overall engine length.

The motorcycle is built on a lightweight and compact twin-spar aluminum cradle frame which is made of five cast sections and features a cast swingarm.

Other features that are worthy of being mentioned include 3-way adjustable footpegs, an adjustable shift lever, a modern instrument cluster that features an analog tachometer with LCD readouts of the speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS and gear position indicators.

Overview

Suzuki GSX-R600

The Suzuki GSX-R600 continues its dominance in the AMA Pro Road Racing series, taking all 600cc championships in 2012 - including the Daytona Sportbike, Supersport West, and Supersport East.This further solidifies the GSX-R600 as part of a race-winning line of motorcycles from coast to coast.

In 2012, Suzuki celebrated the 1 millionth produced GSX-R motorcycle, a feat only accomplished with the support of fans, race teams, and dealers worldwide. The reason - each GSX-R is developed with: an advanced race-proven 599cc, 4-cylinder, and liquid-cooled engine; a responsive, agile, and lightweight chassis; compact wheelbase; and race-developed suspension. In short, the GSX-R600 has once again proven to be the winning combination to Own the Racetrack.

2014 Suzuki GSX-R600 Features and Benefits:

Suzuki GSX-R600

Engine:

• A 599cc, four-cylinder engine with a race-proven oversquare bore/stroke ratio provides exceptionally potent, high-revving performance.

• Shot-peened conrods, chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes help ensure efficient performance.

• Class leading Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection system includes fine-spray 8-hole injectors, providing improved fuel atomization contributing to more complete combustion in the cylinder.

• Advanced, MotoGP-developed transistorized ignition control circuit helps maintain more precise ignition timing across the range of engine temperatures.

• Lightweight, durable forged pistons are designed with the Finite Element Method (FEM) and fatigue analysis technology and optimized camshaft profiles was developed using proven MotoGP racing technology.

• A 4-into-1 stainless-steel exhaust system features a titanium muffler, which carries a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve. The system maximizes torque and improves throttle response, especially in the low-to-mid RPM range.

• Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of two racing-developed engine control maps to suit road conditions and personal preference.

• Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase helps reduce friction, improve heat transfer, increase durability and provide better ring seal.

Transmission:

Suzuki GSX-R600

• A six-speed close-ratio transmission features vertically staggered shafts to reduce overall engine length.

• Race-proven back-torque-limiting clutch contributes to smoother downshifting and corner entry.

Chassis:

• Race-developed, lightweight 41mm Showa Big Piston front-Fork (BPF) delivers superb feedback and consistent performance.

• A lightweight and compact twin-spar aluminum cradle frame is made of five cast sections and features a cast swingarm.

• An electronically controlled steering damper provides lighter steering at lower speeds and more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds.

• Front brakes feature fully floating 310mm discs and radial-mounted, four-piston Brembo monoblock calipers.

• A single Showa rear shock features externally adjustable rebound and compression damping, along with adjustable ride height.

Suspension:

• 3-way adjustable footpegs, adjustable shift lever, and short fuel tank help compose a comfortable riding position.

• Instrument cluster features an analog tachometer with LCD readouts of the speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS and gear position indicators.

• Compact, lightweight instrument cluster with a built-in lap timer/stopwatch and programmable engine RPM indicator.

• Small, simple and lightweight bodywork featuring exciting, aerodynamic styling
