Suzuki rolled out its new 2008 prototype GSV-R V4 MotoGP machine at a test session in the Twin Ring Motegi earlier this week.
The bike, which was tested by development rider Nobuatsu Aoki, featured a new chassis and exposed exhaust system.
MCN was able to grab this exclusive video footage of the new bike, which has been extensively tested in Japan.
Nobuatsu Aoki has a wild card ride next month in Sepang’s Malaysian MotoGP, and could debut the 2008 contender if engineers have enough parts available in time for the October 20 clash.
Chris Vermeulen and Loris Capirossi will test the new bike for the first time in a test session in Valencia after the final race of the 2007 season in early November.
