Suzuki is a bit of an underdog in the MotoGP World Championship – at least, as much of an underdog as a full factory outfit can be. With just one Suzuki on the grid, expectations are low for the Japanese manufacturer.

But one thing Suzuki does do well is put out an attractive looking racebike with the GSV-R dressed in Rizla Suzuki blue with livery by Troy Lee Designs. As eye-catching as the regular blue GSV-R looks, Troy Lee Designs may have topped itself with a one-off “Micron” livery used at the Misano round earlier this month. The chrome design was made to promote a new product from the team’s title sponsor, rolling paper manufacturer Rizla.

Troy Lee Designs released a short video showing the work that went into producing the “Micron” chrome one-off livery.

Now what we need is video for the making of the Rizla Suzuki girls’ Micron dresses!
