Gravel Road Testing
In order to improve drivability on unpaved roads, Suzuki test riders and engineers make repeated trial runs on gravel roads and uneven surfaces.
Electronic Control Systems Testing
Suzuki makes full use of the most advanced measurement technologies in developing the electronic control systems for our motorcycles. Likewise, our test riders apply their experience and human senses to help realize a smooth and natural feeling to operation.
Ryuyo Proving Ground's 6.5km circuit and 2.3km back straight is where the core riding performance of every Suzuki motorcycle — how they RUN, TURN and STOP — is perfected.
Design – Sketches
Suzuki styling designers create countless sketches of everything down to the smallest parts as they work to design motorcycles and ATVs that exceed customer expectations.
CdA and lift values are measured in wind tunnel tests. Suzuki's MotoGP racing machines, the Hayabusa, and other models are tested in the same facility.
Design – Modelling
Modeling is the process by which Suzuki clay modelers transform a design sketch into a three-dimensional object. Repeated rounds of shaving, filling and measuring go into achieving the optimal shape.
Ryuyo Proving Ground reproduce challenging road conditions and environments found around the world. These are used to test dynamic performance and help ensure reliability and comfort.
Design – Color & Graphics
Skilled color designers coordinate everything from color combinations, emblem and decal designs to the materials used as they work to make each motorcycle and ATV unique and highly appealing.
Engines are comprised of hundreds of parts. Suzuki closely examines and verifies the performance of each one to improve durability, power and environmental performance.
Design x Performance
Suzuki's styling designers and engineers work together as a unified team from the early stages of development to find the right balance of design and performance.
Suzuki conducts rigorous high-load tests to develop durable engines and chassis so customers can enjoy riding their motorcycles and ATVs for many years and thousands of kilometers.
Various conformity tests are carried out in severe environmental conditions, including cold temperatures. These tests help make Suzuki motorcycles and ATVs capable of withstanding harsh and challenging conditions for customers around the world.
Chassis Durability Testing
Chassis durability testing involves severe high-load tests, which include drop and vibration tests. These enable us to properly evaluate the function, strength, and durability of chassis-related components.
