Hi guys, it’s been a while since we reported on Erik Buell’s current project. If you check out YouTube, he has a page called “EBR Nation.” It is a behind the scenes look at the making of an American Superbike.
Below are the last three of four episodes that feature exclusive footage on the making of the 1190RS, performance & manufacturing, plus candid interviews with Erik Buell, Geoff May and the elite team that make up all that is Erik Buell Racing.

Hi everyone, this is Paul with another entertaining update on our Staff Bikes. This time I got to take the 2011 Suzuki GSX-R600 out for a spin! In this video, I will show you a quick overview of the features of the GSX-R600.
Starting out with the newly designed dash and on-board computer display, the navigation is controlled on the right side of the handlebar through a toggle switch by the throttle. Features include a clock, reserve trip meter, lap timer, and of course odometer. A brightness control is included for easier viewing.
After a quick start up, we get to enjoy the rich sound from the exhaust. This model, unlike the other 2011 Suzukis we have tested, has only one exhaust can.
In the ending comparison, I give you some insights to the feel of riding the GSX-R600 and how it compares in several situations against the larger Suzuki Staff Bikes. It’s exhilarating to ride and easy to control, but obviously lacks the enticing allure of power and rush of a higher torqued engine.
