Rumored but then confirmed, Suzuki's return to MotoGP in 2014 also brings a new, upgraded bike, already heavily tested by Nobuatsu Aoki in Japan, and said to be a truly beastly machine, capable of extreme performance.
So far it looks like the bike Suzuki is readying for the 2014 MotoGP season will be an in-line 4 unit, remaining faithful to the proven high-performance GSX-R line of production engines.
The new bike has three official tests scheduled for this season, and we just can't wait to see it pitted against the other factory machines. Additional private testing is also on the menu, but until the season is over, we're eager to find out with whom will Suzuki team up for the next season.
Since Dorna claims "the grid is full" (because of all the existing CRT teams), Suzuki will be forced to join one of the existing teams. Team Aspar's Randy de Puniet has been named as one of the test riders, and it's his team to join efforts with Suzuki, rumor has it.
While many expect that the second contracted rider will be a Japanese one, CRT champ Aleix Espargaro has also been included in the rumor stream. With not that much time remaining until the first official Suzuki test, we're all eyes on the Hamamatsu guys.
