I recently came off of a YZ250F as I decided I wanted to go back to 2 strokes as they are more fun to ride. Found a deal on this 99 and so far it's been a fun bike. Good bottom (I rejetted for the mid sputter it was having) and a good top end. Overall I like this bike as it has a nice hit but not too powerful to wear you out too quickly. Suspension is good on it as my heavier weight has yet to bottom it out. I'd recommend it to anyone...

No new gp replica can be ridden for 10 hours straight. Rider position is good and the seat is comfortable. I wore out my knee scrapers in one month on this thing. It can be ridden in a straight line and taken hard into any corner, and with the 190 rear tire, it's easy to hold on a long one. Frames are strong unlike the new models which will crack with excesive wheelies. The 98 was said to have had injection faults but I have personally never heard of one. Easy enough to service.

I just bought the bike and man am I impressed!! I was told before I bought it that it was very light and fast but I had no idea of the speed. When I got it out on to some back roads that's when the beast hidden inside came out! The bike rides like a dream and the handling is awesome. The bike rockets off in all the gears as if to ask for more throttle. I love it and a first time rider (After attending a ride and safety course) can handle the bike with no problems. Just remember the key is throttle control. I haven't done any mods as of yet but looking to put on a power commander in the winter months. Ride safe and ride hard everybody. Peace

I went from a Honda CT110 to this beast and I'll never go back. This bike is so fast. It has beaten all the competition I went up against. I even raced a 2006 RMZ-450 which had a head start, caught up to it fast but it slowly pulled away when we both were tapped out. I couldn't ask for a better bike. It pulls wheelies easily in the first 4 gears. All my friends are amazed at how much power it has. I mostly trail ride it and it can do that to with ease. I highly recommend this bike to some one that has an experience on a 250.

I bought one of the last '99 GSXR600's available in Nov. 99. It is my first bike that I will never get rid of. It's a great starter bike. I've had no problems except the carburator slows performance when the temperature is just not right.

Needless to say this was my first bike ever. Yes my first bike was a 250. It's so fast I can't believe it. I was at the dunes on spring break and I beat a KFX 700, the fastest quad on the market through the dunes and I wasn't really even trying. Plus I had a half way gone paddle. The guy had all kind of advantages on me and I still won. WOW! If you ever consider this bike I'd say get a newer one if you can afford it. Not because this one sucks, it dosen't... it's awesome, but because this year is an odd year for Suzuki with this bike. It stands on its own on some parts and parts for this bike can be a pain especially aftermarket graphics. But all in all this bike rocks! It's my baby.

This bike is amazing in every category, the addition of injectors is huge, the handling is phenominal and will out-handle any other bigger bike out there and smoke the 600cc on the road or track. It is comfortable for a sport bike. Not for the beginner rider! IT'S WAY TOO FAST! It handles awesome at high speeds as well, I recently had it up to 155mph and still managed to weave in and out of traffic with ease. There is no point in a bigger bike unless all you do is bring it to the strip.

I bought my Gixxer in 2002. This bike is wicked fast. Not a bike for the new rider. But if you know what you're doing on two wheels and enjoy riding fast and cutting corners, this is the bike for you. I'm a pretty big guy and this bike is about as comfortable as a sportbike can get. I rode 350 miles in one day and turned around and did the ride back the next day without missing a beat.

I just got a 1999 rm 125. This is my first motorcross bike and it is very fast. It has lots of low end power and a great midrange. Recomended for an experienced rider who wants to have fun on tracks or trails.

I rode a 99 yz 250 (stock) thought it was a fast bike. Then i rode a 99 rm 250 (also stock) and i tell you what the bike seems to pull about twice as hard when you roll on the throttle. Needless to say I own the suzuki now.

Lets be honest, the TLR at first glance is quite an eye opener, styling, size and the engineering all come to mind. I bought mine 2 years ago and tweeked this and that to get a better setup within the first couple of months, yes it transformed the bikes character but then i took her shopping on $1500. Ohlins rear shock to start was a massive improvement, Sprint steering damper, Gilles rearsets, Quill T3`s, airbox mod, K&N filter, TRE plugin, braided hoses, double bubble, slight re-map and a pair of the latest amazing Bridgestone BT012SS hoops among a few other bits & setups. I service all the bike myself and rebuild the forks with fresh oil every 6 months to keep that smooth handling. What i have now is a bike that will go where shes aimed at, easily fast enough to outrun RSV and 998 equivelants as proven and yet the durability and comphort to tour europe on twice a year. Any proud owner will tell you time and time again how much they love em, i suppose we are a cult as some say but theres nothing to better this bike in my eyes at the moment, and its a damned shame the typical lousy British press didn't have anything better at the time to try and insult. Now production has ceased the press now scream to "go and buy one if you can find one, top bike for for your money!" That says it all.

Numerous people all over the web have stated what an awesome machine this is, you have no idea what this machine is capable of until you actually ride it and come back with the worlds biggest smile on your face. I have a set of Hindle aftermarket pipes on mine and the sound is just unbelievable, I have to be careful about waking the neighbourhood. She is extremely powerful and pulls all the way to the 11000 redline. She is a handful to handle at slow speeds and she let's you know in a big way. This bike is not meant to be ridden slow, so I would not recommend it to the novice rider. The bike has so much torque that if you try and coast around a corner with insufficient revs, she will simply die and lock up the rear wheel, leaving a huge black streak on the pavement. The first time she did this I nearly had a heart attack and dropped it, you get used to it after a while. I recently took a 1000km trip in 13 hours and she purred along without a hassle. She gave me 5l/100km which was lighter than my friends ZX7 and my previous Interceptor, and we where not riding slowly either. A have heard a few people say that it's a poor mans Ducati, I don't think so, the TL can honestly hold it's own and give a lot of bikes a run for there money. Good value for money and will definitely put a smile on your face. Winter is going to be hard this year.

I recently purchased this beast on week ago for my girlfriend. It has boyesen reeds and is bored out to about 299cc. I was following her and she reached 120mph and still had power to kill with. When that power band kicked in jesus look out.

I've raced a few arenacrosses, where getting the holeshot is crucial, and I'm pleased to say this bike is no slacker. I've managed to get the holeshot several times in these events, against 426's, 520's and many newer machines just by opening up the throttle. As soon as the bike hits midrange it takes off like a rocket, then revs to the moon. I swear you could stay in the same gear forever. It's also got the best turning capabilities of any bike I've ridden, owing to a short wheelbase and steep head angle. This bike lives to steal the inside line, but is also happy railing the outside berm. Changing from a 48 tooth sprocket to a 50 gets it more into usable motocross gearing, I've even used a 52 when racing in tight indoor tracks. All in all this bike has a strong motor, good suspension, and makes you feel as though you're cornering on rails.

I've ridden dirt bikes a lot. I've ridden various Street Bikes; 125cc, 500cc, 750cc. I have been riding a 1200cc Tour Bike and I'm in the process of wearing out the second motor in it! I never thought I'd own a Rocket. The local dealer where I get my work done had a 1999 'BUSA and talked me into giving it a test ride. "What the heck" I thought, and took it out for a spin. Yes you know the routine when test riding/driving anything. Out of the parking lot nice and easy, down the street nice and easy, around the corner and out of sight. O.K. now I'm here, let's see what this thing will do!!! I'm on a good rural road, flat and straight, giving it a little bit of muscle as I work up to 5th gear. It has 6k miles on it so it's broke in. No cars are on the road ahead. I've let the rpm walk up to 5k. This is it, time to crank it wide open!! WWAAAAANNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Unless you've ridden one, It would take a book to explain that experience!! Let's just say that now I own A Year 2000 Hayabusa, Red in color, I live in the Northwest with lots of rainfall (I ride the Tour Bike in the rain) have had the 'BUSA 17 months and I have 18k plus miles on it!! Incredible performance! You can ride it gently.. or you can be as stupid as you want. It's built for speed and yes I am glad I live in a rural area!!!!!! Ron

This bike is fast! All I did was put on a full exhaust and a Power Commander. I can stay with any R1 in a strait line. But the fun part is the corners. Even in NY, where all the roads are bumpy, this bike loves to turn. It's not for the faint hearted though. You have to really push this bike to get the best out of it. I like to blast out of a corner with a lot of throttle, past 10K RPM, and, sometimes shift in the turn. When I hit my apex, I gun it. The front tire-almost off the ground-is bouncing off of every little bump, the handlebars twitch a little and the bike slides to the edge of the turn. It can be scary if your not used to it, but when you fly by a "faster bike", it's all worth it. I love my GIXXER. When I get the 1000 next year, this one's going on the track. I also had a '99 CBR 900. Great bike, but nowhere near as much fun to ride HARD.

This is letterly translated from the original french expression (my mothertongue, sorry about that) and I believe is exactly portraying what this bike is. It looks soft, but can be the wildest thing one can ride on Earth. It is heavy on the paper, but handles like a 750 on the road, it isn't marketed in flashy-sporty-replica-something colors, but can kill any of those parrots in less than the time to say it, without even changing gear. Having been a Roadster driver for the last 25 years, I'm looking forward with an increasing level of impatience for a naked version, the top speed doesn't talks much to my sensitivity (although impressive how fast you reach it), it's more the power and the unbelievable torque you have available all around the RPM meter that impresses me. And a serious frame that doesn't behave like a sausage in each turn like most Roadsters do. What about a Bandit GSX-1300-RN ? Be the Force be with You. Eeeerk

MY REVIEW STARTS WITH THE LOOKS OF THE BIKE, ALTHOUGH ITS LOOKS ARE BEYOND BEAUTIFUL,ITS LOOKS ARE BASED ON THE AERODYNAMICS OF THE LONG TESTING IN THE WIND TUNNEL. THE PERFORMANCE IS TRULEY AWESOME, 0-60MPH TAKES 2.5 SECS AND A TOP SPEED OF 212MPH, THIS BIKE IS NOT I REPEAT IS NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED, IF YOUR NOT CAREFUL THIS BIKE WILL KILL YOU IF YOU MISTREAT IT. ITS TRULEY THE FASTEST PRODUCTION BIKE ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET, HAVE FUN BUT BE CAREFUL. (THELAWBREAKER.SUPERBIKECLUB.COM)

I've never owned or ridden a bike with more wheelie power than this. I just can't help keeping the front tire off the ground. It also sounds like magic with D&D pipes.

I have a 1999 GSX-R600 and the oil is leaking everywhere. When I ride short distances, it is barely noticeable, but after a 40-mile or so ride, it leaks "badly." It leaks when riding on freeway and when parked.

It handles great for a big bike. Yes, it's heavy, but once it's moving, it's not very noticable. Acceleration is nothing short of impressive. Mine averages 41 miles/gallon, despite being throttled on a regular basis!

I don't know what all the fuss is about liter class 4-lungers, because the TLR has enough low end grunt to spank their hind ends up to the 100mph mark. Which is exactly where you need the power on the street. The R1 and Hayabusa are faster, but in the real world where top speeds are limited to the highways and roads on which we ride....

I've been riding my GSX-R6 for 2 years and have loved it. I've ridden it on the track and road in all weathers, including snow, and haven't had any problems. (In fact the only problems I've had were with the alarm/immobiliser.) But, it's time to move on. My GSX-R750 is in the mail!
