PICS: Suzuki’s new MotoGP machine

First look at Suzuki's new MotoGP machine, with which the factory will make its grand prix return in 2015.
These pictures show the new Suzuki MotoGP machine, which made its public debut, alongside the present premier-class competitors, during official testing at Catalunya on Monday morning.

Suzuki 'suspended' its MotoGP activities at the end of 2011 due to the financial crisis and has announced that it will return in 2015, one year later than expected.

The European tests involve factory development rider Nobuatsu Aoki and Aspar racers Randy de Puniet, in a team overseen by former factory Yamaha manager Davide Brivio. Former Rizla Suzuki crew chief Tom O'Kane is also part of the European test team.

Unlike the previous Suzuki grand prix prototype, the new machine features an Inline rather than V4 engine layout. Yamaha also uses an Inline cylinder layout, while Honda and Ducati run a V4. All MotoGP machines are now limited to four cylinders.
