Rizla Suzuki has today released the first pics of the 2010 GSV-R, the 800cc MotoGP racing bike that will be ridden by Loris Capirossi and Alvaro Bautista in the upcoming season. The bike will again distinguish thanks to the dominating Blue with RIZLA written on each side.

Althought the bike doesn’t look much different from the 2009 model, the team claims their fourth generation model is better from all points of view: acceleration, aerodynamics, chassis and electronics. Still the V4 copes with engine restrictions implemented into this year’s championship, meaning Suzuki will only supply 6 engines for all 18 races.

While it is nice seeing that reliability is also taken into concern, what happened to “the best race engine is the one that ceases right after passing the finish line”?

The few changes for this 2010 GSV-R may improve the bike a bit I hope they have a good season.smiley

but it just pisses me that as a suzuki fan it is to long between drinks. 82 to 93, to 2000, and up to 2010 only 2 titles. And now they cant even build a bike that LOOKS like it can do the job.

Oh - and I’m rather sure that the Suzuki MotoGP bike has a V4, not an inline four as your article states.

As to your comment on engine reliability, MotoGP 2010 allows only eight engines for the entire season - that might have something to do with their focus on that. Ya’ think?
