American Suzuki surprised the industry last year by deciding not to import 2010 streetbikes while it tried to clear inventory in a depressed market. But for 2011, it's rebounding in a big way with the introduction of a comprehensively reworked GSX-R600 and its identical-twin brother, the GSX-R750.

The GSX-R series is integral to Suzuki, so the Gixxer 600 and 750 received a major investment in technology and updates.

"We built our brand from the GSX-Rs," said Steve Bartolamedi, American Suzuki's senior communications manager. More than 300,000 Gixxers have been sold over the years, and the GSX-R600 has long been America’s best-selling sportbike.

It's got a beak for a front fairing... and what's with the b***** pipe? I like the last generation more, but who knows, Suzuki might be setting up for a huge change in the next generation after this one.

i just cant believe the 750 is almost the same price of a 600.

does that mean newbies will justify getting a 750 because of the price?

something to think about.

^ I dunno, but if I were in the market for a GSX-R, at the price difference I'd probably head straight for the 750. That's a microscopic price to pay for the additional usable torque on the street.

Regardless, I think these bikes are starting to look very dated and hopefully the next gen sees a complete makeover. The mechanical bits are there (especially with the Brembos finally), but cosmetically it's starting to become too much of the same (and that front end is horrendous).

Im hoping the new gixxer 1000's move toward the stremline look of the KTM rc8. If not oh well, they gotts stick w/ the stocky gsxr look and that totally understandable. im a gixxer guy regardless.
