In 2001 a complete revamp of the Suzuki GSX-R600, reflecting the successful design Suzuki GSX-R750 2000, becoming the increased competition in the market for Yamaha R-6 and Honda CBR becomes 600 times permeating the tops of sale.
The new fuel injection on the Suzuki GSX-R600 2001 is designed for this bike lighter, leaner and better than any other previous 600cc sport bike in Suzuki. Using an approach similar to the 750 design, Suzuki engineers were able to reduce the weight of the new bike in 11 kilos, leaving a total empty weight of only 164 kilos.
Suzuki GSX-R600 2001 Features
Aerodynamic fairing which reduces the impact of the front air, compact headlights, taillights and signal turning, along with a slight tail section.
New generation fuel injection system, 16-bit ECM for increased processing speed and more accurate for efficient fuel injection with a smoother throttle response map.
Table compact instrument features an analog tachometer and digital speedometer, LCD also includes odometer, tripmeters, coolant temperature, clock and EFI diagnostics.
The geometry of the chassis and swingarm length are designed for better weight distribution forward, which contributes to the ability to spin much faster, traction of the rear wheel traction and straight. The chassis is lightweight and compact for optimum balance between rigidity and weight.
Cartridge-type front fork 43 mm, inner tubes and fully adjustable spring preload.
Fully adjustable rear shock, has an aluminum body and heat compensation system for increased performance damping.
Lightweight front brake calipers 4-piston aluminum alloy.
Aluminum alloy wheels, three-spoke design.
Compact and lightweight liquid-cooled engine 4-stroke, 4-cylinder.
Cylinder head has an angle of 28 ° including the valve (13 ° admission exhaust 15 °), creating a more compact combustion chamber, a higher compression ratio and an area made of straight improve engine power .
Suzuki Dual Throttle (SDTV), the valve system maintains precise air speed in the area for increased torque at low to medium engine speed, throttle response is improved.
Cylinders plated forged lightweight pistons with low tension rings to reduce friction.
Lightweight 4-2-1 exhaust system in stainless steel with aluminum muffler.
Large aluminum radiator and fan, both with high cooling capacity.
Ratio 6-speed transmission and clutch springs.
Weight reduction through small changes in the diameter of the crankshaft, lighter connecting rods, camshafts and the narrowest diameter of the valve.
Magnesium valve covers also the sprocket cover, clutch cover and clutch cover boot.
