POSITIVE OUTCOME FOR SUZUKI ECSTAR AT SEPANG TEST

151125_13

Team SUZUKI ECSTAR has completed a successful private test session at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia today, where Maverick Viñales and the test team debuted Suzuki’s new seamless gearbox on the GSX-RR.

Viñales was supported in the two-day test by Takuya Tsuda and Nobuatsu Aoki, who ran many laps to supply Suzuki’s R&D department in Japan with useful information and data before the winter break.

Unfortunately, Aleix Espargaró couldn’t join in because of the injury he suffered recently while training that caused him a flexion fracture to a vertebrae and required a two-to-three-week lay-off.

New items tested by Viñales, Tsuda and Aoki were the new Michelin tyres and unified software, which will be introduced from 2016 to all MotoGP™ teams, but also the long-awaited seamless gearbox that equipped both the test machine and Viñales’ Factory GSX-RR. Together with many improvements in set-up configuration and electronics, the three riders carried out intensive work and left the test very satisfied with the progress.

Viñales reported that he had very good feeling with the evolution of his GSX-RR and gave positive feedback about the new seamless gearbox, along with the new electronics. All areas are still to be explored and developed further in Japan over the winter.
