HAMAMATSU, Japan - Suzuki Motor Corp. plans a return to MotoGP racing in 2015 and is now developing a GP racer powered by a 1000cc in-line four-cylinder engine.

After a two-year suspension, Suzuki reportedly has organized its test team to participate in the official joint testing to be held at the Catalunya circuit in Spain.

“Through continuing running tests at the circuits inside and outside Japan for further development and refinement, Suzuki Motor Corp. will participate again in MotoGP racing from 2015,” the company announced. “Suzuki Motor Corp. will feed back advanced technology to be derived through MotoGP racing activity to develop further attractive production models.”

Team manager Davide Brivio and development rider Randy De Puniet are the chief members of Suzuki’s 2013 Europe testing team.
