This means that Suzuki’s MotoGP test rider and reigning Endurance World Champion (EWC), Sylvain Guintoli, will shortly be completing his time with Suzuki – and considering the sheer grunt had from the man on successes for Suzuki, it’s no wonder the brand is thanking him in the best way they know how; with the 1/1 ‘Yoshimura-Sert-Motul.’
“I have to thank Suzuki for this beautiful bike to celebrate our successes over the past few years,” Guintoli enthuses in a report from MCN.
“The throttle response is so linear and power delivery is smooth, it inspires so much confidence to push harder.”
The ‘Busa sports the standard – and bonkers – 1340cc inline-four, showing off a teeth-cleaning 198.8hp and max torque of 120.1ft/Ibs.
Now, this edition will purportedly sport a special a special Yoshimura SERT Motul replica paint job – the very same that Guintoli rides in the EWC.
“[Suzuki is giving me] this awesome “Yoshimura-Sert-Motul” Suzuki Hayabusa in Donington Park to celebrate the 2021 EWC World Title, Bol d’Or and both 2021 & 2022 LeMans24H victories,” adds the racer on his social media.
“A beast on the roads and a beast on track.”
We think he’s pretty happy with the thing; just look at that Cheshire cat grin.
Maybe it’s the helmet.
