If you were thinking why there is so much update about WSBK in the blog, it is because we want to prepare you for the WSBK that is coming on 8th June 2014 in Sepang, Malaysia. This time it is Voltcom Crescent Suzuki Team unveiling their new livery of the GSX-R1000 piloted by Eugene Laverty bearing the racing number 58 and Alex Lowes with the number 22. WSBK could be the one race that we can see Suzuki in racing that we have missed so much after their withdrawal in 2011 in MotoGP. What is great about WSBK is that, the bikes they used in the race series is the production bike that is heavily modified to fit the FIM regulation. This can raise the brand awareness and the bikes’ aura since the bike is readily available on the market.
