Suzuki MotoGP GSX-RR

Following a three-year hiatus, Suzuki returns to MotoGP for the 2015 season. But its riders – Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales – won’t pilot the GSV-R – the V4 prototype used by Suzuki in 2011 – its last year in MotoGP. Rather, Espargaro and the 2013 Moto3 Champion Vinales will compete aboard GSX-RR machinery that features an 1000cc inline four.

These riders, along with test rider Randy de Puniet, who will compete with Suzuki in 2015 World Superbike, have been hard at work tuning the GSX-RR since early 2014. And now, MotoGP fans can get an exclusive insider’s look at the development of the GSX-RR through a new official Suzuki video.

The documentary shows the team working on the GSX-RR at Suzuki Motor Corporation’s Development Centre and “Wind Tunnel” progress at Ryuyo in Japan. The video attached above also features on-track footage, and commentary from Espargaro and Vinales as the Suzuki MotoGP Team preps for 2015 MotoGP, which begins March 29 in Qatar.

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.
