Suzuki Launch Second Model in GSX-R Anniversary Trilogy

15th March 2010

Suzuki Launch Second Model in GSX-R Anniversary TrilogyFollowing 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.
