It started at racetracks far from Suzuki's Hamamatsu, Japan head office. A group of devoted Suzuki engineers on an overseas fact-finding mission wandered under paddocks and spectator parking lots, looking at bikes and watching races. The racers at these events didn't have manufacturing facility contracts, and were not paid to race. They came because they liked the competitors, the sport, and they rode motorbikes they purchased themselves.The race courses were specified by engine size, rider ability level and permitted adjustments. The grids for 1,000 cc machines were packed with GSX-R1000s. The grids for 750 cc devices included row after row of GSX-R750s. But the 600 cc grids were not completely fulled of GSX-R600s. After years of trying, the middleweight competition had actually lastly caught up, once again. The engineers worked stopwatches, talked with mechanics and riders, filled notebooks with observations and comments. They compared what they had actually seen at these local races to exactly what was occurring in the World Superbike and AMA and other nationwide Superbike series, and with the arise from endurance series in Europe and the U.S. By the time they returned to Japan, the engineers had a clear strategy: Take everything Suzuki has actually picked up from structure and racing the dominating GSX-R1000 and utilize it to once more leapfrog the potential 600 cc competition. Apply the advanced technology fundamental in Genuine Suzuki Engineering, and develop a brand-new middleweight machine that defines the principle, The Top Performer. In other words, produce a racer replica that delivers "the impressive power-to-weight ratio, powerband and throttle response". A sportbike that likewise establishes the 600 cc state-of-the-art in regards to throttle response, suspension efficiency, braking power. A motorcycle with the kind of overall handling that motivates rider confidence and results in quicker lap times. A device infused with lessons from the racetrack. Build the 2006 Suzuki GSX-R600. And Own The Racetrack. Again.
