      cool, Suzuki has a grenade…

      and might want to call disposal technician Masao Furusawa while it’s still early, just a thought.

    it’s a crossplane.

    Somebody smarter than me said “There are innovators, imitators and idiots.”. Hopefully they aren’t the latter. My problem is that when someone says Suzuki I picture the Hopper kicking a steaming bike.

    I agree… sounds like a crossplane engine. The riders are complimentary but it’s always exciting to ride a new bike. The engineering facility and team looks small.

    Nice vid, I enjoyed it. Good luck to Suzuki, Espargaro and Vinales this year. Can’t wait for the season to restart.

    Sure does sound like a crossplane motor in that thing.

      Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

      • DamonJ says:

        That it is. I have a R1 and absolutely love the motor! Sure it’s not the latest and greatest tech but a lot can be said for having a bike with character.

          except it IS the latest and greatest tech. that’s just your devaluing mentality kicking in (concentrate, fight it).

          name one manufacturer outside of Yamaha you can run to and buy that technology…?

          exactly, there isn’t one.

          re: “a lot can be said”

          you’re right, I almost forgot. how about this…?

          “6X Champeen” (that’s 4X AMA, 1X BSB, and 1X WSBK)

            hoping they make a cameo appearance on the grid of World SBK soon???

            hoping the they make MORE than a cameo, but this first takes someone’s cash and an announcement of intent, but it’s now 12 Jan. season starts 16 Feb.
