Suzuki Teases Middleweight Gixxer Motorcycles 2011

2011 Suzuki GSX-R 600/750
Reliable source close to Suzuki have leaked an artist rendering of what the rumoured all-new 2011 GSX-R 600 and possibly the GSX-R 750 might look like. The Japanese company didn’t confirm when the new GSX-R will be available. The current GSX-R 600/750 was last updated in 2008 so it’s no surprise that the two models will get only minor updates.

Mechanically, we expect a small weight reduction and an equally small increase of power. We’ll have the full details on the new models from Intermot ‘10 in Germany.
For the time being, the company has released just one teaser photo showing the 2011 600/750 identical twins, previewing what looks to be a 2009 GSX-R1000. No surprise here, as the same designer, Shigeru Uchiyama, was responsible for both versions.
There are only minor changes prepared for 2011, mostly to the visual aspect of the bikes, but a small weight reduction and power increase are also expected. Four new air intakes are placed on the side of a redesigned, slimmer headlamp that now uses a pile of high and low beams.
These slight changes will require only minor investments for Suzuki, but it will also offer a somewhat fresh perspective to the gixxer line. Consumers will get to see for themselves the 2011 Suzuki GXR-600 and 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 models at the Intermot Cologne bike show on October 5.
