Look, he’s a Suzuki man taking a 2020 Suzuki GSX-R1000R out for a really fast lap at Donington, which is a circuit he knows better than he knows the back of his right hand.
But, this video is superb. And Sylvain is genuinely one of the most honest (and nicest) people in racing. It’s well worth watching this in its entirety to get a sense of both what the bike can do in anger and what SG is like in person.
Click on the video bit below to watch this. It’s awesome, and when he’s on the quick lap – turn the volume up.
