Suzuki arrived at the recent MotoGP test in Sepang with an updated engine and variations of its new seamless shift gearbox to test. The team had many new parts to verify, as new regulations and new tires have been implemented in 2016. This meant Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales put in a lot of laps to try and give feedback to the engineers.

In the video below, both team riders, as well as Team Manager Davide Brivio, give their thoughts on the test – where the bike did well, where it can improve, and what lies ahead for the future.
