A Worthy Champion
2020 was the a superb year for the GSX-RR in MotoGP racing, as the Suzuki works machine took the rider's championship. Bearing the ECSTAR name of Suzuki's own engine oil brand and adorned with a blue and silver color scheme reminiscent of the great Japanese brand's bikes from the 1960s, the GSX-RR and its riders Joan Mir and Alex Rins consistently scored points throughout the season: both riders took a win, and Mir had a total of seven podiums as he bcame Suzuki's first MotoGP class champion, and their first in the top class of riding since the GP500 class in 2000 - the perfect way to celebrate Suzuki's centenary and the 60th anniversary of their first appearance in global road races. The GSX-RR debuted in the 2015 season and has been developed into a superb bike, with a 240hp 1,000cc inline-4 engine that achieves speeds of up to 340km/h, as well as refined aerodynamics. Don't miss this chance to add a champion to your model collection, and check out just what makes a modern race bike tick.

About the Model
šThis is a 1/12 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 178mm, width: 62mm, height: 100mm. šFeatures a detailed recreation of the forward-leaning 1,000cc inline-4 engine. šAerodynamically honed cowls are depicted in style, as are the distinctive winglets and lower fender. šDecals are included for Joan Mir's 36 bike, Alex Rins' 42 bike, and also feature champion Mir's No.1 logo, plus test rider Sylvain Guintoli's No.50. šSolid synthetic rubber tires have a realistic finish, and come with Michelin markings for application. šEngine, swingarm and front fork are screw attached. Front and side cowls, plus tank cover can be removed after assembly. šMasking stickers are included to aid with demarcation during the paint job, and the kit also features a racing stand.

šThe honed form of the bike and its aerodynamics are faithfully captured in 1/12. Tires are solid synthetic rubber.

šThe model can also be assembled as Alex Rins' No.42 bike. The front brake disc cover is depicted with accuracy.

šWheelie-reducing winglets on either side of the front cowl are of course precision replicas in 1/12 scale.

šThe Akrapovic exhaust features a twin end, with realistic renderings of the honeycomb mesh in each opening.

šThe 1,000cc inline 4 engine is angled dramatically forwards. This kit depicts even its finer details.

šScrew-attached cowls can be removed after assembly. Internal air box and fuel tank are separate parts.

šThe GSX-RR's distinctive lower fender, which allows air to flow onto and cool the rear tire, is recreated.

šIndividual buttons on the handles are also captured, while the LCD display is depicted by a decal.

šTank cover grip pads are different - clear pads or black stickers - depending upon the rider chosen.

šSeparate parts are also used in the recreation of the on-board camera on the rear cowl of the bike.

šComprehensive decal sheets are joined by masking stickers to aid in demarcation while painting cowls.

šWhy not soup up your model even further with the separately sold front fork set, Item 12691?
