Is Suzuki planning to launch updates on the Suzuki GSX-R600 and the GSX- R750? We think so. This is because the documents that were released on the California air Resource Board (CARB) website- which certifies all vehicles before they are sold in the state, shows that the 2015 GSX-R750 has shown different readings of hydrocarbon, nitrous oxide and carbon monoxide emissions as compared to the 2014 GSX-R750, which implies that if the bike was not updated, the readings would be the same- so the new numbers point towards a tweaked engine.
The CARB document does not show any details regarding the GSX-R600, but the “certified ” 2015 Suzuki GSX-R750 readings show that hydrocarbon emissions have increased from 0.24g/km to 0.26g/km, the HC+NOx emissions decreased fro, 0.36g/km to 0.32g/km, but the bigger change is seen in the increased carbon monoxide level which escalates to 3g/km from 1g/km, it is a big jump but remains well within the standard limit of 12g/km.
Even though the CARB report does not give any other information about the 2015 Suzuki GSX-R750, but what we can speculate is that the changes in these emission figures can be due to either a tweak in the ignition or an upgraded fuel-injection system. With these upgrades, the Suzuki GSX-R series may get a little more power and Suzuki may incorporate some aesthetic changes as well.
Since Suzuki has not revealed anything about the upcoming GSX-R600 and the GSX-R750, we can hope that Suzuki is going to give us a surprise. Suzuki may plan to reveal the GSX-R machines at the 2014 EICMA at Milan or at the Intermot in Germany. We hope to see a more powerful GSX-R series soon.
