It started at racetracks far from Suzuki’s Hamamatsu, Japan headquarters. A group of dedicated Suzuki engineers on an overseas fact-finding mission wandered through paddocks and spectator parking lots, looking at motorcycles and watching races.
The racers at these events didn’t have factory contracts, and were not paid to race. They came because they loved the competition, the sport, and they rode motorcycles they bought themselves.
The race classes were defined by engine size, rider skill level and allowable modifications. The grids for 1000cc machines were packed with GSX-R1000s. The grids for 750cc machines featured row after row of GSX-R750s. But the 600cc grids were no longer completely filled with GSX-R600s. After years of trying, the middleweight competition had finally caught up, again.
The engineers worked stopwatches, talked to riders and mechanics, filled notebooks with observations and comments. They compared what they had seen at these regional races to what was happening in the World Superbike and AMA and other national Superbike series, and with the results from endurance series in Europe and the U.S.
By the time they returned to Japan, the engineers had a clear plan: Take everything Suzuki has learned from building and racing the dominating GSX-R1000 and use it to again leapfrog the would-be 600cc competition.
Apply the cutting-edge technology inherent in Genuine Suzuki Engineering, and build a new middleweight machine that defines the concept, The Top Performer.
In other words, produce a racer replica that delivers “the outstanding power-to-weight ratio, powerband and throttle response”. A sportbike that also establishes the 600cc state-of-the-art in terms of throttle response, suspension performance, braking power. A motorcycle with the type of overall handling that inspires rider confidence and leads to quicker lap times. A machine infused with lessons from the racetrack.
An Artwork Suzuki GSX-R 600 cc of Integral Design
Suzuki has pioneered the concept of integration in design. Unlike the traditional method in which a team of engineers responsible for developing the engine and other design a chassis to anchor in Suzuki an integrated specialist engineers in power package, chassis and electrical system work together using the latest technology Race to build a bike as competitive as possible.
Some of the main objectives of the new Suzuki GSX-R 600 2006 were obvious: more power and torque, a wider band of usable power and bring down the maximum possible mass and the center of the wheelbase.
Others were not so: lengthen the swingarm reduce changes in the geometry of the chassis caused by the movement of the rear suspension.
Move the swingarm pivot forward, enhancing rider confidence to feel better traction on the rear wheel of the Suzuki GSX-R 600 2006.
