The 600cc with all the right stuff.
Fully adjustable sus
Front 4 pots calipers
A sweet looking swing arm
Everytime I see naked 600cc with front 2 pot calipers, only preload adjustable sus and look like 2 metal block swing arm, 600cc naked are one the best choice on ur rds but somehow lack of the "want it" factors and finally SUZUKI have all the great things we always wanted on a 600cc naked....

For GSR 400 non ABS machine price, it should be between 11k to 12k. Things to take note for OTR will be the road tax(normally 6 months), insurance rate (depending on age and years of riding experience), COE rate(depending on the COE market), IU unit with bracket (depending on the shop), transfer fee if any, 7% GST for your machine and not including insurance, road tax and COE. And of cos how many years of loan you are taking and the interest rate varies from shop to shop.
For GSR600, prices range for $15,500 to as much as $17,000 OTR.
ABS version yet to hit Singapore.
Ultimately, its the individual effort to ask around the shops for the exact quote that the shop can give. Get a benchmark from there and can start the bargaining session. That will include your machine price, OTR, free gifts or free servicing.
Two methods of running in of bike. Hard and soft. Which one is the best? The owner decide. Simple to say, soft running in is to take the bike for a slow walk, restraint from over revving. Hard running in is to rev the bike to the max for all gears.
To get the details of running in, ask the shop for recommendations.
Just remember to use mineral oil for the running in.
The two quotes below serve as a guide line for running in. Its NOT A STANDARD running chart.
Regarding run in for new bike. Basically once a new bike is fully installed in the factory, they will rev the engine until red line for one minute then after that they will send it for shipment.
So in conclusion, there will be lots of metal chipping inside your engine. So it is very much advisable to change your Eo after you have clock around 100km. Remember to use the most basic minerals oil for oil change and change oil filter together.
1st Oil Change and Oil Filter is around 100km
2nd Oil Change and Oil Filter is around 500km
3rd Oil Change and Oil Filter is around 800km
4th Oil Change and Oil Filter is around 1500km
After the fourth oil change, you can use fully syn for your bike.
This is just a guideline for you. Enjoy your ride...from other threads on running in, theirs is as folllows...
500km => 50-80km/h (varies your RPM to about 4K-5K), change with mineral and oil filter
1000km => 70-90km/h (varies your RPM to about 5K-6K), change with mineral and oil filter
2000km => 90-occasion above 110km/h , change to semi and oil filter ( at this stage your bike is quite good to go)
5000km => up to you limit, change to fully and oil filter run in done
For reference using hard run in:
