New Suzuki MotoGP™ makes first European appearance

Post  Ewok1958 on Mon 17 Jun 2013, 6:56 pm

From the MotoGp website:
"Suzuki continues the development of their new MotoGP™ prototype this week at the Catalunya Circuit with Randy de Puniet and Nobuatsu Aoki. Check out the first photos of the latest Japanese 1000cc machine!"



Does anyone know what engine configuration Suzuki is running?

My son and I were watching last night, and coined (I think) the term Umbrella Wenches. Smile

Great to see Suzuki back at it.

Yesterday's Moto GP was great - shame Cal Crutchlow fell (as well as many others!) - I'm really enjoying watching Marquez - he's bound to 'off' his team mate soon!!

Don't know much about MotoGp but is this the bike that is on poll in the GP tonight?
If it is then they might be on the podium at the end of the race?

Might have gotten 4th if they hadn't crashed.  But Suzuki will need to get a stronger clutch if they don't want to drop 10 places each race start!

Great to see Suzuki up there and competing. it makes for a more exciting championship.

the bike is a work in progress and they have the handling, just not the horsepower. it'll come in time.

The 2 riders Espagaro and Vinales are pretty good you guys and if they can stay there for another 2 years and develop it, the bike will be a winner.

C'mon Suzuki!!!!

The bike needs a better clutch. They got swamped of the line. Once they were up to speed you can see how well that chassis is working for both riders. Go Suzuki!
