First produced in 1992 through 1993, the GSX-R600 was not very popular. It was basically the exact same bike as the GSX-R750 but with a smaller motor. It did not sell well, and in 1994, Suzuki stopped manufacturing it for two years while they went back to the drawing board and recreated it. In 1997, they re-released it as a brand new product with cool new features all its own. The GSX-R600 has done very well for itself since then, and has become a popular recreational bike and a very successful race bike. In 2012, the GSX-R600 dominated the race world by winning multiple championships including the Daytona Sportbike, Supersport East, and Supersport West championships. True to the standard Suzuki has set for all the other GSX-Rs, the 600 has gone through revisions almost every year to keep it in top-notch competition shape. Major bike changes are listed below.
