2011 Suzuki Motorcycles

For 2011, Suzuki totally redesigned the GSX-R 600. In this YouTube video, America Suzuki drops by the Yoshimura Raceshop (think Mat Mladin), and takes a closer look at the all new sportbike, focusing on all the major new changes.

The GSX-R 600 has continued to win races in many 600cc classes across AMA Pro Racing and World Supersport, and for 2011, Suzuki decided on full redesign of the motorcycle.

New for 2011, the GSXR 600 shares the same advances as its 2011 brother, the GSX-R 750: race-proven advanced engine technology, with broader power delivery, improved throttle response, lower emissions and about 10-percent better fuel mileage as measured by Suzuki engineers using the standardized Worldwide Motorcycle Test Cycle.

The new GSX-R600 features nimble handling and a compact size; the new sportbike also is 9 kilograms lighter, with a curb mass of 187 kilograms-giving it the class-leading power-to-weight ratio for production 600 four-cylinder Supersports.
