2014 Suzuki MotoGP Testing Video

When the 2015 MotoGP Championship gets underway, Suzuki will make its official return to the series with its inline-four 1000cc prototype.

And with nine months remaining before the beginning of the 2015 season, Suzuki has been hard at work testing its prototypes at various tracks.

In April, the Suzuki MotoGP Test team of Randy de Puniet and Nobuatsu Aoki were at Austin’s Circuit of the Americas. And helping the team test was 1993 World Champion Kevin Schwantz.

Attached above is a video highlighting the Austin test, with interviews and on-track action.

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.

Suzuki last competed in MotoGP in 2011; that year with Alvaro Bautista at the controls of the Rizla GSV-R prototype, Suzuki finished 13th overall.
