Although it has suffered a decline in sales recently, the 600 Supersport class has been keenly contested over the last 30 years, with all of the Japanese 'Big Four' battling for supremacy in the showroom and on the racetrack. Throughout this period, Suzuki's GSX-R600 offerings have been characterised by a roominess and flexibility tailored for everyday road riding: you don't have to be jockey size to fit on one or chase the redline to make it go fast, unlike some rivals. The GSX-R600 was first introduced in 1992, deploying a 599cc water-cooled four-cylinder engine in what was basically the chassis and cycle parts of the existing GSX-R750. That first model carried over to the 1993 model year with no changes but was never officially imported into the UK, where the more modern RF600R was the factory's offering in the 600 Supersport category. The 600 'Gixxer' then disappeared from the Suzuki range for a few years, re-emerging in 1997 in radically different 'SRAD' form. Currently displaying a total of only 22,159 kilometres (approximately 13,700 miles) on the odometer, this rare early GSX-R600 is presented in original condition and is undeniably beautiful. The machine is offered with Netherlands registration papers.
