2014 Suzuki MotoGP Spied Again! More photos and details from at Twin Ring Motegi.

soon know more Suzuki ’s 2014 MotoGP as that Japanese company three public and two private tests beginning in June. the current machine, factory rider and GP veteran Nobuatsu is quoted as saying, “They a lot of design changes.”

Differences we can see in recent photos are that the two exhaust megaphones have one, and that the starter-access previously seen on the right of the fairing, is gone. Since our source still says, sound as Yamaha YZR-M1,” we the single megaphone does not the prototype has reverted to an even-fire crankshaft. Absence of the starter suggests Suzuki has caught up slipper-clutch technology, allowing the to be fired in the same manner as the and Yamaha by driving the rear

seating is also continued. says the current bike has an engine and chassis, but we can see that the remains a transverse inline-Four its cylinders inclined forward. is in keeping with Suzuki’s GSX-R series of production rather than being a from them, as were its MotoGP V-Fours.

The swingarm’s may have been refined, as Swingarms have evolved a basic pair of beams at the front by a box. Bracing to twist used to be added the beams, but the need to put fuel the front of the seat (where it is as the engine’s intake airbox most of the volume above the has lately forced suspension downward, making it sensible to the bracing under the swingarm

The next step has been to up the swingarm-plus-bracing idea in favor of an structure. Seen from the this is a triangle—entirely sheeted-in for a slot through which the passes—with its apex at the rear

Viewed from above, current prototype arm looks a U-shaped tuning fork, the beams curving around the of the tire. Since swingarm flexure functions as suspension the bike is at high cornering angle, it is good design to use curving shape, which the whole structure to flex than concentrating stress the side beams emerge a traditional front box. seen from above, the beams are quite thin, of the of 30mm.

For further testing, an arrangement has made with Team to rent its rider, Randy de Suzuki has said its 2014 will have two riders, and we can one will be Japanese, taken the ranks of its national series. De current teammate, fellow CRT Aleix Espargaro, has also mentioned as a possibility.

Because now claims its MotoGP grid is (half the slots being by uninspiring CRT teams), Suzuki supposedly have to make an with an existing team to get on the grid. All such arrangements be in flux once the Honda racers and Yamaha lease arrive to supposedly “transform” the in 2014 and eliminate place-holding

Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta is in certain circles for “keeping ’em with frequent and often changes of plan, but the current is that Honda has taken his and will not easily tolerate of what MotoGP boss Nakamoto has called “crazy This is not a solution. It is merely the political “détente” in this Honda’s goals remain they have always to dominate all classes, even if makes racing a bore, its value to all.

We have Suzuki’s U.S. auto declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and we U.S. motorcycle sales during the recent depression by 70 percent. Harley-Davidson announced U.S. sales of 601cc-and-up had fallen in the first quarter of by an additional 16 percent in comparison first quarter 2012, so the bad isn’t over yet. In the of the song, “What will be the the income don’t come Can Suzuki afford MotoGP?

We can only speculate. Being in is now central to sales in Indonesia, lads and lasses on 125s of greater things, so Suzuki may say there’s no choice.

The last is engine architecture. If Honda can win with a V-Four, should give up what it has learned its own V-Four to go a different way? It best sense if there is to be crossover between MotoGP and as in the close perceived relationship Yamaha’s YZF-R1 production and its M1 MotoGP racer. GSX-R have been the lifeblood of sales, so it makes brand to bring them and any MotoGP close together in concept.

Could this mean GSX-R repli-racers?” A for-sale racer? Time will answers.
