Team Suzuki Ecstar has rolled out a new-look GSX-RR for the 2020 MotoGP World Championship, the squad launching its new colours with Alex Rins and Joan Mir.

The livery takes a nod to Suzuki’s history as they celebrate 60 years in racing, the colourway featuring the familiar blue mixed with a more traditional slate silver.

“I will carry the special livery for the 60 years in racing and this makes me proud,” said Mir. “One of the best things about being with Suzuki is that I feel a real family atmosphere, I don’t know if it was also like that in the past, but to me it feels like something they have in the Suzuki DNA, together with constantly striving to win, and I think this really makes a difference.

“Now in 2020 we have to stay focused and get good results, more podiums for sure and hopefully also more wins. This is the path to success, I believe; little by little, step by step, with hard work all together.”

Teammate Mir commented: “I’m really eager to get on my MotoGP machine again in Sepang and start to improve further. It’s going to be an important year for Suzuki and the blue-silver livery looks amazing on my GSX-RR, I’m proud to be part of this historic year and carry such racing heritage on my fairing.”

Both riders are on-track today and this weekend in Sepang, Malaysia, for the opening pre-season test of the year.
