2009 Suzuki GSR600 Naked Now Available


Suzuki’s 2009 GSR600 naked street fighter is now available and stalking the streets with all its bits on show (and the Gixxer 600’s donk hanging below the frame).

And interestingly, it looks like you can get it in any colour provided it’s Pearl White.

With a lightweight, aluminium-alloy frame and swingarm for agile handling, the GSR600 promises heaps of performance in a convenient middleweight package.

A week in the saddle will tell the tale, but with that liquid-cooled, 599cc, four-cylinder DOHC engine (borrowed from the GSX-R600) combined with Suzuki’s Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection system tuned for low-to-mid range torque, it has the right on-paper credentials for strong all-round sports performance.

With sleek lines, sharp distinctive looks front and rear, and naked-bike cred, the 2009 Suzuki GSR600 looks an appealing package and deserving closer scrutiny .

Suzuki also claims optimum rider and passenger comfort thanks to a relaxed riding position and short reach to the handlebars.

Backed by a two-year, unlimited kilometre warranty, the 2009 Suzuki GSR600 is now available for $11,290rrp (excluding dealer delivery and the normal government theft charges).
