Suzuki’s 2016 MotoGP™ GSX-RR was on display alongside the all new Satria F150, Team KAGAYAMA GSX-R1000 8-Hour race machine and ARRC Supersport GSX-R600 at the weekend’s third round of the Asia Road Race Championship at Suzuka Circuit in Japan..
Team Manager and SUZUKI ASIAN CHALLENGE mentor/ organiser Yukio Kagayama displayed Aleix Espargaro’s #41 machine as inspiration to the young up and coming riders in Suzuki’s popular one make, single-platform race series; who one-day hope to progress to the top level of world motorcycle competition.
Said Kagayama: “We displayed the MotoGP™ Suzuki GSX-RR and Team KAGAYAMA GSX-R1000 Suzuka 8-Hour model in the pits for the SAC riders to see them. It is their dream to one day become a rider that would be able to race on it, so I thought that it would be a good opportunity for them to see the actual machine. The riders were all mesmerised and I was happy to see them like that.”
The new, more powerful, faster and lighter ‘underbone’ F150 has scored numerous accolades from Asian Media recently – including the ‘MotoPlus’ 150cc underbone technology Award, 150cc underbone fuel consumption Award and also Rookie of the Year Award since its launch at round two of the SAC in Thailand last month.
