25th Anniversary Suzuki GSX-R600 unveiled in the UK
After the 25th anniversary GSX-R750 that was unveiled at the end of last year, Suzuki GB have now released the 25th Anniversary special edition GSX-R600, just 25 units of which will be built. The bike’s paint scheme is a replica of a 1999 GSX-R600 and there’s a Yoshimura exhaust, a top yoke plaque and certificate, and £8,799 price tag.
The very first GSX-R600 was launched in 1997, and in 1999, Italian rider Fabrizio Pirovano won the World Supersport Championship aboard a GSX-R600. For more information on how you can get your hands on the 25th Anniversary GSX-R600, visit the Suzuki website here
In the meanwhile, another very special Suzuki – a GSX-R1000 prepared for 1993 500cc world champ Kevin Schwantz (he rode a demo lap at the Isle of Man on this bike, in 2007) – was recently auctioned off for charity. Danny Palmer, of Palmers Motorbikes, was the winning bidder – he paid £9,500 for the machine, which will now be put up on display at the Palmers showroom.
