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.
