MotoGP – 2013 Suzuki Testing with Randy de Puniet (Video)

Suzuki MotoGP Testing

As Suzuki preps for its return to MotoGP in 2015, the team went through some rigorous testing of its inline-four prototype at Catalunya in Spain over 2013.

Suzuki recently released the attached video, which shows behind-the-scenes and on-track action from the Suzuki MotoGP Team’s 2013 testing program. This footage was originally screened at the Tokyo Show in Japan and the EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show.

Suzuki has some huge names on the European testing team, including the former team manager of Valentino Rossi – Davide Brivio – and current MotoTP pilot Randy de Puniet as the test rider.

Suzuki entered the Grand Prix Championship in 1974 with Barry Sheene at the controls of the RG500. The manufacturer has six titles through its final year in 2011, including 1976 and 1977 with Barry Sheene, 1981 with Marco Lucchinelli, 1982 with Franco Uncini, 1993 with Kevin Schwantz and 2000 with Kenny Roberts Jr.
