2006 GSXR600 Good & Bad?

Well I went to the Cycle World Internation Motorcycle Show. I got some pics of the new 600. You can see they changed the tail to something like the 2k5 1000. A very Aprilla ass.



Plus look at the shorty pipe! Could they have made it any small? Do we think it will put crap on the swingarm?



Plus here's the new front...


Here's some others...

Seen lots of this "wine" color in the bikes this year...

I like it... looks good. Not the total overhaul like the R6 got, but still a very nice model. And C'mon, Suzuki copy a Yammy exhaust? I would put my money on it being the other way around

The silver/white one is the best looking. Jumping from the Yamahas to the suzukis, they just dont feel as nice though.

the yellow/black and the wine colored ones are 750's. The 600's graphics dont extend to the tank. Must be moving in that direction as the katanas follow the same schemes for the 600-750.

i think it's ugly. the tail lights (or turn signals, whatever) look like an afterthought, like they forgot them and just stuck them on each side of the rear. especially on the blue one where they are white. not for me.

I can't deny it....I like it. I sat on the 06, and I think it felt the best out of the 05 R1, 05 R6.

anyone know what the power output of the new 600/750 is going to be??

I think yamaha is up around 120ish with their new R6 (along with a 17,5k redline)

where is suzuki standing.....

BTW....im almost sorry I bought the 600....I wish I went for the 750. The 600is plenty and all....but I really wish I went with the 750 for longevity + I want something with a little more midrange kick.
maybe next summer I'll trade up.

That's usually the case w/ all the GSXR's minus the Busa.

I think it could grow on me. The color schemes got better. That white and silver is badass.

IDK the exact numbers but the Gixxer 6 is a little behind the R6 and the 750 is quit a bit more.
