Just a couple of days before the beginning of the second official test of the season, Andrea Iannone and Alex Rins flew to the Phillip Island circuit in Australia to try out the brand new GSX-R1000R.
This followed the international press launch that Suzuki staged for the media and was also a chance to meet all the Australian Suzuki dealers in a celebration dinner that concluded the launch week.
Despite poor weather, the two Team SUZUKI ECSTAR factory riders were eager to try the new GSX-R1000R on the fast and exciting Australian circuit. They were able to appreciate the effectiveness and the natural ease of the new machine and their racing DNA also brought a direct comparison to the GSX-RR MotoGP machine they are going to ride on Wednesday at the test. The two machines are very similar in many respects since the technology developed for MotoGP races is the very same that inspired the product designers and engineers in the development of its sister product.
