is going to launch a GSX-700T, a turbocharged modern cafe-roadster-cum-naked that’s based on the factory’s Recursion concept.
That’s the claim by a host of Greek Suzuki dealers who have said that, at a meeting between them and Suzuki recently, they were told about the new model. The same source took the photo of the dealer’s screen listing, saying that this is the proof that outlines the factory’s plans.
The claims continue with the Greek dealers saying that they were also told that the bike will be called the GSX700T before being taken through the model range in full.
This new T model will be powered by the 700cc XE7 twin-cylinder engine block with a variable geometry turbo (the 588cc version of that motor was shown alongside the original Suzuki Recursion concept at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2013). And as if that’s not quite enough, the news also includes this snippet about the future model – the new motorcycle will probably run under the name ‘Recursion’ too.
Suzuki registered the model name as a trademark two years ago for use across Europe and the US. You can see what is claimed to be the official Suzuki document that proves the impending arrival of the GSX-700T.
MCM asked Suzuki about the validity of these claims and Paul de Lusignan, Suzuki GB’s general manager, said: “We are continually evaluating our new model plans, and explore different avenues of development when doing so. However, at this stage we are not able to comment further.”
