The new Gixxer 600 motorcycle is outfitted with a 599cc 4-cylinder engine with an over-square bore and stroke ratio that incorporates a higher-revving design.

New engine features include revised camshaft profiles, shot-peened conrods, chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes.

The Suzuki 4-into-1 stainless-steel exhaust system with a titanium muffler, uses a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve to improve torque and throttle response in the low-to-mid RPM range.

The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of two racing-developed engine control maps to suit road conditions and personal tastes on the GSX-R 600.

Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection, uses fine-spray 8-hole injectors for improved fuel atomization, which contributes to more complete combustion.

Even more trick may be the Brembo front brakes with fully floating 310mm discs and radial-mounted, four-piston monoblock calipers.

The GSXR 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.

To top is off, an electronically controlled steering damper is designed to provide lighter steering at slower speeds and more damping force on the racetrack and at highway speeds.
