While we have posted various 'scoop' pics of the 2008 Suzuki GSX-R750 and GSX-R600 earlier, these are the first proper, 'official' pics of the two bikes. Of the two, it seems it’s the GSX-R600 that’s been more thoroughly reworked, with Suzuki claiming that the 2008 bike is their best, most powerful 600cc supersports machine ever. With its revised chassis, new exhaust system, tweaked and remapped fuel injection system and new paint schemes, the 2008 GSX-R600 sure looks good!

The 2008 GSX-R750 also gets a new exhaust system, new paint and graphics, and various minor tweaks throughout. Like the 2007 GSX-R1000, the GSX-R750 also gets Suzuki’s ‘Drive Mode Selector’ this year. This system allows the rider to ‘tune’ power delivery according to his/her riding abilities and if need be, soften power delivery in tricky weather conditions.

Overall, while Suzuki have made no radical changes to the 2008 GSX-R750 and 600, it seems they’ve still done enough to keep the bikes fresh and appealing. More details on pricing and availability of the 2008 GSX-R models, soon.

it's the new gsx-r750 that i like most, it's even better looking than the 2008 gsx-r1000. but why put drive mode selector on this bike? unlike the 1000, the 750 isn't powerful enough to need this bit of electronic gimmick

I have to believe the 04-05 version was the best SuzyQ had to offer. Most torque, lightest weight, excellent lines w/ an aftermarket pipe. Oh well, such is the march of "progress".

does anyone else think that when you look at this bike head on, the lights remind me of owl eyes. What an ugly change from 2007 model.
