Well it has been unveiled, what do you think? Here is the info via motogp.com;

Team Suzuki MotoGP unveiled a striking new paint-scheme for its 2005 version of the Suzuki GSV-R at Bridgestone's New Year Reception in Tokyo today.

The launch was held in partnership with Bridgestone to showcase the Japanese tyre-manufacturer's motor-sport plans for 2005. Team Suzuki MotoGP is committed to Bridgestone as a long-term technical partner and launched its new cutting edge design at the reception.

The new GSV-R livery is designed to “reflect the excitement, determination and passion that Suzuki is investing into its flagship race bike and team.”

The GSV-R showcases all of Suzuki's corporate racing colours in the design with a strong emphasis on white to make sure that it stands out from the crowd. The inspiration for the design has come from Suzuki's historical racing heritage with a bloodline that can be traced to the World Championship winning RGV of Kevin Schwantz in 1993.

"This is an important step forward for Suzuki Motor Corporation and especially the MotoGP team,” said Team Manager Paul Denning.

“We are competing both to win and to promote Suzuki's global image, and the GSV-R now has the design and aggressive styling the firm's performance pedigree demands.

“It looks fantastic, in my opinion, and I am proud to be associated with such a great looking motorcycle.

"It is also very significant that the new design was revealed at Bridgestone's headquarters in Japan. This openly demonstrates the close links between Bridgestone and Suzuki and our determination to work together successfully in MotoGP."

Its a fucking sick looking bike. Not to mention its bad ass. V4 motor configuration with a dry clutch. Not to mention 210hp!
That thing has to have more than 210 Hp to compete with the other bikes, the M1 is pushing 240 hp.

That's real sick. I'd probably kill myself in less than a week if I owned one, but it's reallll tight. Maybe someday.....
I don't think you'll own one unless you have a couple extra million just laying around the house.

The bike looks bad ass, but the paint scheme has to go!! IMO it looks like a girlie bike, doesn't do the bike justice. It screams feel good stuff, like lets hold hands and pick flowers or something. Who is the pilot on that thing, Martha Stewart?
