The Re­cur­sion has al­ready been shown as a Suzuki con­cept but the pro­duc­tion draw­ings gave us the clear­est in­di­ca­tion yet that the model was head­ing for pro­duc­tion, some­thing the pres­i­dent of Suzuki him­self con­firmed to us last year.

On some of the patents, no fair­ing is vis­i­ble on the tur­bocharged bike, but the patent makes it clear that a surge tank for the su­per­charger is mounted be­hind a cylin­der head. An in­ter­cooler is ad­ja­cent to the surge tank (be­hind the cylin­der head, too) and there is a su­per­charger mounted in front of the in­ter­cooler.

Suzuki has gone to in pro­tect­ing what it con­sid­ers to be a very im­por­tant mo­tor­cy­cle in its near fu­ture. Filed with var­i­ous patent out­lets, the plans show a de­vel­oped ver­sion of the cur­rent V-Strom mo­tor but with a much more nar­row lay­out and de­sign.

Spec­u­la­tion has been rife since then that this en­gine is to get a turbo fit­ted to it and spur on de­vel­op­ment of a new big, sporty road­ster twin from Suzuki in the same vein as the iconic TL1000 range of the 1990s.
