Kevin Schwantz rides Suzuki’s MotoGP bike

Texan legend Kevin Schwantz has given Suzuki his impressions of the Japanese factory’s new 1000cc MotoGP project at the Circuit of the Americas. The 1993 world 500cc champion took the opportunity to lap on the XRH-1 machine while Suzuki takes part in a special two-day test session at COTA in advance of its full-time return to MotoGP competition in 2015.

Spin off

Faster Suzuki get racing the faster the replica street bike GSXR version gets launched so that some street punishment can be enacted.  Get racing now.

 what a wanka you u think a 50yr old bloke riding a bike he's never ridden before gets within 10 seconds a lap of marquez is so slow a sun dial is needed to to time him? I said your a wanka who has no respect for one of the greatest racers of all time

 Good comments GSXR1969. Couldn't agree more. Nobody is saying Schwantz is the test rider, he's just taking the thing for a spin, which is his right as a MotoGP world champ for suzuki. He can do what he likes. I also think he was very modest saying he has never seen anyway ride a bike like MM before because I have and it was Kevin himself back in 1988 or thereabouts when he was winning MotoGP races on an underpowered dog of a Suzuki that his team mates struggled to get in the top ten!

Ask yourselves a question ...

What was the point in MCN posting Schwantz' time and comparing it with Marquez ?

Right ..... No point .... meaningless and irrelevant !

So the real point is ...  ''light blue touch paper and stand clear'' ............

Partial agreement...

The bloke is fast.  He's a former world champion.  He can jump on a modern MotoGP bike and lap within 6 seconds of the slowest GP rider.  No mean feat.  He loves bikes and just keeps going.  Total respect for the Suzuka 8 hours.. that takes dedication..  However he's not the most humble of blokes and a dose of humility wouldn't go amiss.  Still, when you think Dorna owes you a favor....
