Intro

Since Suzuki is a far smaller manufacturer than Honda and Yamaha, and doesn't have the industrial might that Kawasaki has, they always had to spread their resources alot more carefully. During the late 80s and early 90s the 600cc sportbike class was little more than a sideshow. In 1992 and 1993, Suzuki attempted to use various components from the GSX-R750 in a 600cc bike, but decided to scrape the project for '94. Once the 600 came back in '97 though it was back for good.

Suzuki decided to bring the GSX-R600 back from the dead, but this time it wasn't just an afterthought. It still wasn't the main priority and was delivered 1 year after the debut of the '96 GSX-R750. The whole platform was designed with the idea of having a 600cc model. Suzuki retained the GSX-R750 frame but fitted it with a lighter swingarm without upper bracing. This made the bike 0.3 inches shorter than the 750. The GSX-R600 also didn't receive the high-tech inverted fork of the 750 but instead received a conventional Showa fork, along with less exciting four-pot caliphers compared to the six-piston calipers on the 750.

2001 ushered in the third generation of GSX-R600s, however, this introduction was largely overshadowed by Suzuki's introduction of the GSX-R1000. This bike broke the 100hp mark for the 600 class and the second successful 600 class bike to be fuel injected - after Triumph's disaster in the TT600. All this from a bike that was playing second fiddle to the GSX-R750.
