September 22, 2005 It’s new model time in the motorcycle industry and Suzuki has three new road machines for next year that are sure to set hearts racing, particularly the GSX-R 600 that has been significantly reworked with a view to challenging the domination of the Honda in the all-important SuperSport 600 racing category and the enormous effect this has on road bike sales in the class.

The 600 and its almost identical 750cc sibling have both taken on the styling of the highly successful K5 model GSX-R1000 and it’s interesting to consider Suzuki’s sales strategy – make a competitive 600 machine for the racetrack and then it just that bit sweeter and more comfortable for the road with an extra 150cc of grunt. The Bandit 1200S has also come in for serious revision, shedding 6 kilos of weight and getting an adjustable seat height suitable for those humans with a low undercarriage.
