Suzuki MotoGP Video Series, Part 2: When Randy Met Davide

Continuing their video series on the progress of their MotoGP project, Suzuki today released the second part of the series. Today's video documents the first tests which Suzuki undertook at Motegi in April and May, after signing Randy de Puniet as test rider and Davide Brivio to manage the program.

The first task De Puniet was set was testing the Suzuki GSV-R 800 bike back-to-back with the new 1000cc bike. De Puniet had previously tested the 800cc bike at Valencia at the end of the 2011 season, before Suzuki decided to pull out of MotoGP temporarily. The two bikes have radically different designs: the 800cc bike had a narrow angle V4 engine layout, while the 1000cc is an inline four with a big bang layout, along the lines of Yamaha's M1. De Puniet's comments on the two machines give an interesting insight into the difference the new regulations have made.

Below is the second video in the series. If you'd like to catch up with the first video, you can see it here.

The kid stays in the picture!

Hope Suzuki's development team is keeping pace with their umbrella girl cinematographer. She seems to be getting better acquainted with her equipment - and her editing is improving too.
Plot development is still pretty fuzzy - all I've learned so far is V4-800s handle differently from I4-1000s.
Who'd have guessed?

Suzuki is makiing a Yamaha?

It sounds like Suzuki is following Kawasaki and making a Yamaha to go racing.
