I have rode my gsxr600 k5 now since March 05, both on the road and on track. This bike is without a doubt a track based machine,and handles way beyond my abilities as a rider. Lacks some power when dealing with the big Thou's but with some effort can just about stick in there, knee down wheel in the air is aregular on the track. With awesome stopping power on this newer model.Awesome power delivery,and what a scream from the exhaust. Corners like a train, point and shoot is all i can say !. On the road it is quite tame and refined and i have done some fair distance on it. As a big guy it is still pretty comfy to ride.. and look out it wheelies for fun Highly reccommend this machine to anyone.just fantastic...... at only £5800 new. As requested a bit of the tech stuff....
599cc in line 4 cylnder DOHC 16 valve
Dry weight 161Kgs
USD Forks by Showa 43mm fully adjustable(front and rear)
New Moto Gp style braced swingarm
Non adjustable steering damper
Fuel consumption(mine anyway)about 34miles per gallon
Top speed (again mine on a private road of course) 159mph
Claimed BHP 120 probably more like 110 though.
