The Rizla Suzuki team is pulling out all the stops for the 2010 MotoGP Season. With a new Livery and all new specifications the team is looking to be running up front and battling for podiums. Suzuki has been in top form in the US AMA Superbike series and they are hoping to ride the success right into the MotoGP season.
Loris Capirossi and Alvaro Bautista will be riding in this season’s MotoGP World Championship is the fourth generation of the 800cc GSV-R four-stroke prototype Grand Prix bike. It has been developed for the 2010 season with a focus of improved acceleration as well as increased durability to coincide with the new engine restrictions that will be implemented into this year’s championship. Improvements to aerodynamics, chassis performance and electronic systems go to make this the most technically advanced racing motorcycle that the Suzuki factory has ever produced.
