The team Suzuki ECSTAR he has been training this week at the Malaysian circuit. In the private tests of the Japanese brand Aleix Espargaró was missing due to his injury to the T9 vertebra, something that will undoubtedly delay the development of the Suzuki GSX-RR of MotoGP on which they have begun to use a seamless gearbox.

Who has been giving everything has been his teammate, Máverick Viñales, which together with testers Takuya Tsuda and Nobuatsu Aoki has swelled around the Sepang track gathering very valuable information to give engineers a good base of work during the winter.

One of the great disadvantages of the GSX-RR was the absence of a "seamless" gearbox, but even without it, during 2015 they have not been exaggeratedly far from the rest of the leading brands. Now, with less time wasted in each change and the same electronics and tires for all, we will see how closely the Suzuki positions themselves.

Some time ago, Morrillu told us in this article that the difference between the gearbox of Honda WITH seamless and that of Yamaha WITHOUT seamless was just under half a tenth of a second per gear. With the number of times you change gears in a race, this change can put Suzuki in the full line of fire.

This promises!
