yeah its very impressive, i allready say this on past years and that is nothingh wrong with the Base of Suzuki GSXR Model, even beeing one of the oldest models the bike is very well made and she can be big compared to one Aprilia but at least is more stable and have better aerodinamic protecton then other bikes.. What they where needing was one powerfull engine and better electronics and loocks like this year they have the package.. Hope they have a better year

I hope this is a real breakthrough for Suzuki because if it is this is fantastic.

I've been waiting for this for a long time because Leon Camier is a better rider than the other British riders in this championships, not by miles and he's gonna waist everyone or some other pathetic comment you expect here but because he has more natural ability, this bike will give him the chance to proove it.
For acurate tarmac pinpoint speed, I think Leon Cam will have i and it's natural too him.. JR has so much feel it actually slows him a little becuase he is so comfortable with the bike moving around he doesnt put enough importance into finding ways to stop it.. Good to watch though.

If this bike is this competetive he will win this championship!!!

This is why WSB is currently more interesting than Motogp, its unpredictable!

Looks like Johnny Rea has finally got what he wanted ie a competitive team-mate, the Panigale looks to be coming up to speed, satellite Aprilia's competitive, Chaz Davies & Guintolli can only get faster, might be a small field but so many riders have a chance at the podium, not just 4 works bikes and the rest fighting for scraps.

Seems that Cresent taking the engine work "in House" with then just assistance from Yoshi has helped. When they let the Japanese do everything all we heard was great chassis but we need more power. Now the bloke in a shed (abit big one) in the west country has it.

Just be nice to see another possible winner - alhough this might screw up my MCN team

@ pp916

EXACTLY!!! There was some guy on here giving WSBK flack for the SMALL field towards the end of last year, and that's EXACTLY what I told him.

@ rod99

I agree there too. I think people were too harsh on Leon. As for the BEST of the Brits, not sure. He IS BRILLIANT but I think they're all pretty close. Tom still gets my vote. And I don't agree that the bike moving slows you down, look what Casey did...

@ Nick 636....

There are certain contributors to this site that are very biased toward Motogp and they take every oppertunity to put WSB down and defend the sometimes indefencible where Motogp and Dorna are concerned. Of course there are also those that take a contrary, I just like good racing wherever it may be and hate the prospect of it getting diluted by over-zealous interference. This test is a shining example of the competitiveness of WSB, long may it continue!

Plenty going on and hopefully we might see a bit more of the 2 Leons up front this year. Does anyone know exactly how the spec of Jamie Stauffers bike compares to the regular WSBK bikes? I'd always hoped he'd get picked up the class by someone. Looking forward to Sunday though!
