Suzuki Recursion Turbo Superbike
Suzuki is expected to unveil this turbo-charged 588cc parallel-twin at the Tokyo Motor Show at the end of this month. Called the Recursion, it’s said to make 100hp at 8,000rpm with peak torque of 74lbft at 4,500rpm, overcoming the poor mid-range problems associated with early turbo systems.
The concept weighs 174kg and offers 50% better fuel economy than a sports 600, according to the specifications. The engine is a parallel twin OHC with two valves per cylinder and a turbo intercooler positioned under the leather seat. The Recursion has a single-sided swing-arm, carbon monocoque seat cowl, upside-down forks and wavey disc brakes. The concept also replaces physical switches on the bars with futuristic touchpads. Cue riders accidentally blasting the horn instead of indicating. The styling is described as ‘neo café racer’.
