First Look: 2008 Suzuki GSX-R600/GSX-R750

As expected, Suzuki announced its new GSX-R600 and 750 models at the Paris Motorcycle Show in October. With virtually all-new versions of these Suzuki sportbikes debuting in í06, these í08s are mostly cosmetic revisions with minor mechanical upgrades. Sharing a common platform, many of the changes to the two bikes are in parallel with each other, including the addition of Suzukiís Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) as first seen on the 2007 GSX-R1000.

The obvious alteration comes in the form of new styling. Up front is an attractive nose job that gives the bikes a more contemporary look. It also appears wider, which should increase weather protection for the rider, and it juts out further forward than previous. A center-mounted low-beam is flanked by a pair of high-beams, with the pair of ram-air inlets mounted directly below to maximize their effect. Also new are the front turnsignals integrated into the mirrors like the Gixxer Thou flagship.

Perhaps the most controversial styling treatment is the massive new exhaust system. Instead of last yearís stubby tailpipe, this new treatment stretches from the under-engine collector into a large canister that sweeps all the way past the bikeís rear axle. Its awkward large size helps the bike meet new stringent exhaust emissions requirements. We expect the aftermarket to sell a boat-load of replacement pipes for these Gixxers. Like before, it includes an exhaust valve that optimizes torque and horsepower production based on throttle opening and engine speed.
