Suzuki debuts 2011 Euro Motorcycles

2011 Suzuki Motorcycles

Suzuki Motor Corporation has unveiled three new european motorcycle models for 2011 at the Intermot motorcycle, scooter, and bicycle fair, held in Cologne, Germany, from October 5 – 10.

The three new models each offer improved performance together with an improvement of at least 10%* in fuel economy.

2011 Suzuki GSR750: a new naked machine with futuristic styling and a powerful engine

The GSR750 is a new kind of naked machine: one that combines edgy, futuristic styling with great performance on urban streets.

It’s outstandingly rider-friendly thanks to atomizing injectors and other cutting-edge technologies that make it at least 10%* more fuel-efficient than the 2010 GSR600 and realize smooth, strong torque delivery in the low-to-mid rpm range.

Plus, it has inverted front forks, a multi-function instrument cluster, a uniquely shaped headlight, and a triangle-shaped muffler that combines radical looks with great functionality.

2011 Suzuki GSX-R750: The best-balanced 750cc Supersport in the world

Reflecting the GSX-R concept of always being The Top Performer, the new GSX-R750 is 8kg lighter than its predecessor in the chassis and other areas and as compact as a 600cc machine; its lightness and compactness translate into better performance.

The chassis incorporates a newly designed frame, a Big Piston Front-fork, and Brembo monoblock front brake calipers.

The engine is at least 10%* more fuel-efficient than that of the 2010 GSX-R750 thanks to cutting-edge design techniques that yielded lower mechanical losses. Plus, compact bodywork reflects the pursuit of lightness.

2011 Suzuki GSX-R600: Nine kilograms lighter and class-leading performance

Suzuki has evolved its 600cc Supersport once more. The new GSX-R600 has a newly designed frame, a Big Piston Front-fork, and Brembo monoblock front brake calipers.

Plus, its engine has lower mechanical losses thanks to advanced component-design techniques originally used with MotoGP machines; output is higher at high engine speeds, and torque is higher in the low-to-mid rpm range.

The engine improvements are complemented by revised transmission gear ratios, resulting in better acceleration and an improvement of at least 10%* in fuel economy over the 2010 model.
