No major changes other than graphics. The 1998 GSX-R600 featured new graphics with “600”, SRAD (Suzuki Ram Air Direct) being added and the Suzuki logo changing to a more agressive position on the fairing. Also note the front fender is changed to black while the rear seat cowel, headlight fairing and tank changes their stripes.

This model, the Suzuki GSXR 600 1998, receives only a small change in color in the blue and white range. No other decorations hit the market, the brand Suzuki walked tests with the model and was remade to launch new decorations if I were to be a failure as it was in the Suzuki GSXR 600 1993.
