The 2015 Suzuki GSX-RR was unveiled at Sunday's Japanese MotoGP, when 1993 world champion Kevin Schwantz was joined by 1982 world champion Franco Uncini for demonstration laps of the Motegi circuit.

Schwantz, who previously joined the Suzuki MotoGP development team for its test at Austin in Texas, rode the new GSX-RR (pictured) while Uncini demonstrated the GSV-R that last competed in the 2011 MotoGP series.

"I started very carefully as we didn't start from pit-lane and without tyre warmers, but I soon felt the machine was being very stable and I was able to speed-up," said Schwantz. "I understand the bike, it's a very good machine; and I really enjoyed riding it."

Uncini added: "Fantastic! It's a very great bike. Kevin followed me early on, but then overtook me at great speed. After that I ran behind him and it was really enjoyable. I would like to say thank you to the Suzuki team staff giving me such the chance like this."

Suzuki is returning to MotoGP next season, when Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales will race the GSX-RR.
