Davide Brivio, Suzuki MotoGP Team Manager, Interview

Schwantz did 11 laps on the grand prix machine in between testing his primary bike, a Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 superbike in preparation for the Suzuka 8-Hours later this year. His best lap time, a 2:12.75, was only six seconds slower than DePuniet’s. Not bad considering he’d never ridden the bike before…and the fact he turns 50 later this year!
