Suzuki releases documentary on new MotoGP bike

Test riders Espargaro and Vinales give their verdict on the GSX-RR

SUZUKI has released a short video documentary on the GSX-RR that will be raced in MotoGP this season by Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales.

The footage shows the racing machine undergoing wind tunnel testing and engine durability tests at Suzuki’s Motorcycle Technical Centre in Japan.

The video also shows wild card rider Randy de Puniet, and Suzuki riders Espargaro and Vinales testing the 2015 machine at Valencia Circuit in Spain.

After finishing his first test on the bike, Espargaro said: ‘So, I’ll start with the biggest thing I felt, ok? The first big thing is the first touch of the throttle, the power delivery is too aggressive.’

Espargaro finishes by adding: ‘I like the bike. The bike is really good.’
