Top Gear Live chooses Suzuki GSX-R600 for its 2010-11 World Tour

The Suzuki GSX-R600 will now make an appearance on Top Gear Live, though we'd bet Mr Clarkson wouldn't be riding one anytime soon...   :-)

Top Gear Live has selected the Suzuki GSX-R600 as the only motorcycle that will be used for the program’s 2010/11 World Tour. ‘I’m keen to have more motorcycles at Top Gear Live and sportsbikes like the Suzuki GSX-R600 turn as many heads as a Nissan GTR. Our show features some of the fastest cars in the world, tuned almost beyond their limits, so any bike that braves our arena needs to have some serious performance backing it up,’ says Top Gear Live Executive Producer, Rowland French.

‘For us, the GSX-R fits the bill perfectly and features in a sequence with Stig driving a 600bhp supercharged Mustang. With Dougie Lampkin, one of our highly experienced stunt riders onboard, the GSX-R600 definitely gives the cars a run for their money,’ adds French. Visiting seven cities around the world and playing to over 300,000 spectators, the GSX-R600 will feature alongside Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, as it visits London, Birmingham, Dublin, Brisbane, Melbourne, Johannesburg and Oslo.

In the meanwhile, we wonder what Suzuki are doing about the 2011 GSX-R1000 - there hasn't been any official word on that. Soon, we hope!

Here's a look at Top Gear Live...
