New Suzuki GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 for 2011!

The Gixxer lineup gets a little freshening up with a new GSXR600 and GSXR750. Numbers below are (for now) per Suzuki's global specs.


2011 Suzuki GSX-R750




Suzuki says:
Experience a breathtaking combination of outstanding engine performance, nimble handling, compact size and light weight. Experience the GSX-R750 – the latest version of The Original GSX-R, the best choice for riders who appreciate a state-of-the-art 750cm3 engine combined with the compactness of a 600cm3 Supersport.


Features:
* Compared to the 2010 model, the latest GSX-R750 has: a 8 kilograms lighter curb mass, 15mm shorter wheelbase and reduced (by 55mm front and 35mm rear) overhang, as well as approx. 10% better fuel mileage (WMTC mode, Suzuki in-house research) and lower emissions.
* 750cm3 4-cylinder engine with a race-proven oversquare bore/stroke ratio for an efficient, high-revving design.photo 1
* The engine employs forged pistons, shot-peened conrods, chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes.
* Lightweight titanium-alloy valves controlled by single valve spring to reduce mechanical losses.photo 2
* Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection, using fine-spray 8-hole injectors for improved fuel atomization, which contributes to more complete combustion.
* Advanced, MotoGP-developed transistorized ignition control circuit helps maintain more precise spark timing across the range of engine temperature.
* Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of two racing-developed engine control maps to suit road conditions and personal tastes.photo 3
* 4-into-1 stainless-steel exhaust system with a titanium muffler, carrying a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve maximizing torque and improving throttle response, especially in the low-to-mid rpm range.
* Race-proven back-torque-limiting clutch contributes to smoother downshifting and corner entry.
* Lightweight and compact: twin-spar aluminum cradle frame made of five cast sections and cast swingarm.
* Small, simple and lightweight bodywork composing an exciting, aerodynamic styling.
* Race-developed, lightweight Showa Big Piston Front-fork (BPF) delivers superb feedback and consistent performance.photo 4
* Single Showa rear shock features externally adjustable rebound and compression damping, along with adjustable ride height.photo 5
* Electronically controlled steering damper provides lighter steering at slower speeds and more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds.photo 6
* Front brakes with fully floating 310mm discs and radial-mount, four-piston Brembo monoblock calipers.photo 7
* 3-way adjustable footpegs, adjustable shift lever, and short fuel tank help compose a comfortable riding position.photo 8
* Compact, lightweight instrument cluster with a built-in lap timer/stopwatch and programmable engine rpm indicators.photo 9
* Analog tachometer. LCD readouts include speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS and gear position indicators.
* Rolling-code anti-theft immobilizer system is standard in selected markets.

nice track weapons, but those pretty new plastics are the 1st things to go.

(looking forward to performance improvement details)

They need to 2-tone the tank white sides blue top to help pull off that paint scheme, otherwise it looks like a big blue garden globe sittin' on the frame

Hellmutt: I didn't realize the tank is whacked on that bike till you mentioned it. Reminds me of a recent pic I took while riding with Heather in VA:

Good to see they finally upgraded the brake system,
hoping the master cylinder is also Brembo a la R1/R6.
Not a fan of these Showa forks whatsoever though.
Everything else is... the same I guess.

I took the 750 out for a road test here a couple of months ago. Nice enough but not enough to make me change from the K8 600...yet, anyway.
