Moto2: X-Ray of Marquez’s Repsol Bike

Moto2 Tech Details

After taking the 125cc MotoGP Championship in 2010, Repsol’s Marc Marquez found himself on the Moto2 grid for 2011.

And the Moto2 machine Marquez was about to compete on was double in weight and power, a challenge for the 18-year-old Spaniard. But Marquez quickly adapted, already taking four victories to date in the 2011 Moto2 Championship.

Repsol says “The Moto2 Suter is one of the favorite bikes of the season, developed by a Swiss engineering company and that fills a huge part of the starting grid in the intermediate class, as it is used by 14 riders.

“The bike features a double beam aluminum chassis, adjustable single aluminum swingarm, cutting-edge Öhlins suspensions and a total weight of 137 kg.”
