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.”
