Suzuki complete successful Valencia test

1 of 1

The Suzuki MotoGP squad of Maverick Viñales and Aleix Espargaró have completed a successful two-day private test at Spain’s Valencia circuit, taking to the track to test numerous parts including two chassis specifications.

Alternating between both the 2015 chassis that both have been racing and the new 2016 frame during testing so far this year, Viñales says that combined with new upgrades from Japan they’re finally coming closer to a solid setting.

“It’s been positive for us to take profit from this private test, we needed to find more efficiency with the traction and we also worked for many other improvements. The Suzuki factory sent us many pieces to test and also new configurations, so we tried some improvements in the chassis and also many set-up configurations.

“It was a positive test, we had a great deal of feedback that will be useful for the future to determine the paths to take. The GSX-RR is already a very good machine in certain areas; like the fast corners and its agility, but lacks in some other areas. We are working to find a good balance and be more and more performing.”
