1997-98 Suzuki GSX-R 600, reviews, opinions

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by BKN, Aug 14, 2006.

  1. hi guys,

    im considering a GSXR600 for my next bike. i like the shape and price range is reasonable. but its a bit too fat for me, but i'll get use to it i think. anyone wanna shed some light? how is the bike overall?

    and should i look out for anything in particular on these models?

    i personally like the bike and would really consider buying one.

    thanks in advance for the opinions.

  2. Hi BKN, welcome to what some call the madhouse.

    I'm only new to riding myself, but was wondering what experience you've had riding bikes. If you are new to riding the GSX600R is not a learner or first bike material. Meaning it has plenty of sting to get you introuble and the power come on high in the upper end. Just my thoughts. Any way I'm sure you will get plenty of other responses.
  3. well it is an "upgrade" which is why i want a bigger bike.

    besides from the excessive power, are there any other downfalls?
