Suzuki back in MotoGP 2015

Suzuki is coming back to MotoGP in 2015 with its newly-developed MotoGP machine, the GSX-RR, team riders, and team structure.
The team will be led by current test team manager Davide Brivio with Spanish riders Espargaro and ViƱales recruited to spearhead Suzuki’s efforts on track.

Through MotoGP racing, Suzuki will develop more attractive products by giving technical feedback to the products, as well as improve the brand image.
The development of the GSX-RR was started in 2012 with the aim to achieve high performance in the MotoGP class, as well as to give technology feedback to production models such as the GSX-R range.
It equips a newly developed in-line four-cylinder engine that realizes a strong, flexible engine character, fuel efficiency, and durability at a high level. The frame has a layout that keeps its width slim for both maneuverability and aerodynamic performances, and optimizes body strength and weight balance.
The aim was to develop a highly competitive MotoGP machine that can bring out the straightforward maneuverability developed over the years with the GSX-R.
