It’s been over a year since we brought you the scoop on those Suzuki patents showing the firm’s plans for a turbo, supercharged and new big-twin for 2017 (possibly). So we thought we’d remind you of what’s coming.
On July 6 2015, we were the first to bring you these production drawings of the Suzuki Recursion bike, a faired 588cc modern Cafe Racer with turbo-charged power (below). The Recursion has already been shown as a Suzuki concept but the production drawings gave us the clearest indication yet that the model was heading for production, something the President of Suzuki himself confirmed to us last month.
We also told you on the same day about the firm’s naked version of the turbo, added-power middleweight (below).
No fairing is visible on the turbo charged bike, but the patent makes it clear that a surge tank for the supercharger is mounted behind a cylinder head. An intercooler is adjacent to the surge tank (behind the cylinder head, too) and there is a supercharger mounted in front of the intercooler.
Then on September 28 we brought you the new patent drawings for a more narrow, V-twin engine and exhaust that Suzuki is working on (below). Filed with various patent outlets, the plans show a developed version of the current V-strom motor but with a much more narrow layout and design. Speculation has been rife since that this engine is to get a turbo fitted to it and spur on development of a new big, sporty roadster twin from Suzuki in the same vein as the iconic TL1000 range of the 1990s.
