New Chassis

  • The LED combination taillight and brake light is built into the rear of the tailsection, featuring a red, mirror lens, covering LED’s.
  • Engine Features
  • 32 bit ECM features 1024 kilobytes of ROM for maximum engine performance working in conjunction with the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) engine management system
  • Clutch cover and oil pan feature internal ribs for increased rigidity and reduced engine noise
  • Combustion chamber shape features a compression ratio of 12.8:1for maximum performance
  • Compact and lightweight 599cc 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine designed with optimum performance and responsiveness in mind
  • High volume Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) with an innovative under engine chamber leading to a large volume muffler with a distinctly shaped triangular silencer
  • Electronic fuel injection system features Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system – with dual fuel injectors per cylinder and new compact 8 hole, fine spray injectors for improved fuel atomization.
  • Exhaust cam tappets diameters are now larger at 25.0mm for maximum flexibility in cam profile design
  • Forged aluminum alloy pistons are designed to work with 12.8:1compression ratio, iridium spark plugs and combustion chamber shape.
  • High volume Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) with an innovative under engine chamber leading to a large volume muffler with a distinctly shaped triangular silencer
  • Hydraulic cam chain tensioner automatically adjusts while reducing noise and mechanical losses.
  • Ignition coil outer diameter is designed for reduced weight and the starter motor uses rare earth magnets for a compact lightweight design
  • Large ventilation holes located between the cylinder bores are designed for reduced internal pumping pressure and minimal mechanical losses
  • Proven Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) engine management system allows the rider to choose from three engine settings to match riding conditions with a handlebar mounted switch
  • Suzuki Exhaust Tuning system is built into the mid-pipe using a servo-controlled butterfly valve to tune the exhaust system to match engine rpm and improving low end torque
  • Suzuki Idle Speed Control (ISC) system for improved cold starting, consistent idle quality and reduced emissions
  • Under deceleration the back torque limiting clutch reduces pressure on the clutch plates for smoother downshifting and corner entry

Chassis Features

  • Aggressive new overall design features a well balanced combination of compactness with the high performance look of a GSX-R
  • An aluminum-alloy frame utilizing five cast sections is engineered to deliver the ideal balance of rigidity for improved handling and less weight
  • Braced aluminum alloy swingarm is rigid with a large swingarm pivot and the swingarm assembly is designed for optimum suspension feedback and rear wheel traction
  • Diecast aluminum seat rail features an updated two piece design for reduced weight
  • Electronically controlled steering damper uses a solenoid valve to move a tapered needle reducing or increasing oil flow to adjust damping force.
  • Innovative rear suspension linkage features a forged aluminum alloy link and one piece forged aluminum alloy link rod designed to increase traction and reduce side loads
