2008 Suzuki GSXR Launched at the 07 Paris Motorcycle Show – Review
Suzuki has launched the new 2008 Suzuki GSX-R600 on the eve of the 2007 Paris Motorcycle Show The new 2008 Suzuki GSX-R600 gets a new look with more effective aerodynamics and a new fairing with three horizontally-mounted halogen headlights. Main beam uses all three lights, with a ‘position lamp’ above the main headlight to keep the traditional vertically-stacked look of the Suzuki GSX-R-600. They sit above the central two ram-air intakes in a fairing which is wider at the handlebars to reduce turbulence. There’s also a larger 17-litre tank to provide fuel for the 16,000rpm redline engine, which features three engine maps selectable on-the-fly, like the Suzuki GSX-R1000. It also has a new Suzuki fuel injection system, and is housed in an aluminium-alloy frame, with a new rear subrame which saves 125 grams. There are fully-adjustable Showa forks and rear shock, 14-position adjustable footpegs, an electronic steering damper which reacts to the speed of the motorcycle, and a seat height of 810mm. Lighter alloy wheels are the same dimensions as the previous Suzuki GSX-R600, but sqve 430 grams between them. The front brakes are dual radial-mount opposed Tokico front calipers with 310mm discs. The single-piston reqr Tokico caliper works with a 220mm disc. The other 2008 Suzuki motorcycles launched at the same event were the 2008 Suzuki GSX-R750, and the 2008 Suzuki DR125SM.
