Suzuki Launch Second Model in GSX-R
15th March 2010
the successful launch of the 25th anniversary GSX-R750
last month, Suzuki GB today unveiled the second model
in the exclusive trilogy, the limited edition GSX-R600.
With an exclusive colour scheme replicating the 1999
factory machine, like its larger sibling the GSX-R600
will be limited to just 25 models.
Featuring a Yoshimura exhaust, exclusive top yoke
plaque and certificate, the GSX-R600 will be available
for a recommended retail price of £8,799.
Suzuki GB marketing manager George Cheeseman commented,
"This is the second special model in our 25 year
anniversary trilogy and like the GSX-R750 echos the
timeline of range development. In 1985 the GSX-R750
first appeared, rewriting the rules in the sportsbike
category, before Suzuki moved the game on again in
1997 with the introduction of the very first GSX-R600.
We pay tribute to the GSX-R600 with this special model,
while we look to complete this special trio of models
later in the year."
Enjoying great success on the roads and track since
its introduction in 1997, the GSX-R600 took Fabrizio
Pirovano to the World Supersport Championship title
just two years after its launch, repeating the feat
with Stephan Chambon the following year before going
on to secure the world manufacturers title in 2002.
At home, Michael Laverty secured the British Supersport
Championship in 2007 with Bruce Anstey taking the
GSX-R600 to a TT Supersport win one year later.
