Everything a machine should be
If your expectactions demand a exotic performance machine with sleek, aerodynamic design, state-of-the-art engineering, civilized ergonomics and envy-laden glances from everyone you pass, then the new and exciting 1988 Suzuki GSX600F is one machine you definitely can’t afford to pass up.
A machine of uncommon character, the 1988 Suzuki GSX600F sacrifies nothing. It embodies the race-track heritage of the legendary Suzuki GSX-R750. Featuring the revolutionary Suzuki Advanced Cooling System, double-overhead cams and Twin Swirl Combustion Chambers. And it also boasts strong torque spread across low-, mid- and high-rpm ranges.
Usable torque for exploring those twisty canyon roads or 2-up cruising. The 1988 Suzuki GSX600F was ergonomically engineered for optimum comfort for as long as you want to ride. Ideal placement of the handlebars and footpegs in relationship to the seat produces an exceptionally comfortable ride. Yet another exciting and unexpected pleasure.
Wind tunnel developed aerodynamics helped create a highly refined fairing and enclosed bodywork that reduces aerodynamic drag, feeds cool, fresh air to the engine and directs the engine heat out, away from you. And this will allow you to slice through the wind in total comfort.
The common ground it will share with other highly sophisticated and exotic machines is its sheer desirability. The 1988 Suzuki GSX600F, it´s everything you’ve ever expected. And a lot more.
