The Japanese manufacturer introduced three models in Cologne, including the updated 2011 Suzuki GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 which you can read about in editor Kevin Duke’s report from their North American launch.
Not coming to North America, at least not as a 2011 model, is the all new Suzuki GSR750. The naked standard is powered by the previous generation GSX-R750’s engine, retuned to improve low and mid-range power. The GSR750 uses an all-new tubular steel frame that Suzuki says combines the advantages of a tubular girder streetbike frame with a twin spar sportbike frame. Front suspension is provided by a 41mm upside down KYP fork with adjustable preload. On the rear is a link type single coil shock with adjustable preload. The front wheel is equipped with two 310mm floating brake discs with Tokico hydraulic dual-piston calipers while the rear uses a 240mm disc with Nissin single-piston caliper. Suzuki will also offer ABS as an option.
