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.

A 600 with a period paintjob - that's the best Suzuki can do with the 25th anniversary GSX-R?!?!? Where's the BMW S1000RR-beating GSX-R1000, with a new V4 engine, single-sided swingarm and LED headlamp? Come on, Zook, you can do better than this silly little 600 you got here!

The 600 Gixxer sure looks cool. And as for the S1000RR beating GSX-R1000, hey it WILL come next year... ;-))
