Rins happy with new rear height device

Until now, both Alex Rins and Joan Mir, his partner in the Japanese team, had complained on several occasions about the violence with which the mechanism lowered the rear of the prototype when exiting the curves. That made the motorcycle move more than recommended, a circumstance that harmed them considerably.

Two weeks ago, Suzuki moved a new version of this part to Misano, which, initially, was to be tested in the tests after the San Marino Grand Prix. However, Rins asked to be able to use it already in Sunday’s race and the conclusions were good, even though the Barcelona native could only finish seventh, 12 seconds behind the winner (Pecco Bagnaia).

Suzuki, a factory that has always stood out for taking its time in the development of new components for its GSX-RR, only has two units of this component , a circumstance that, combined with the reappearance of Mir -in Misano he did not race due to injury- , made both racers save the new models for Saturday, which is when things really start to get decided.

“This Saturday we will use the new rear height device that we already use in Misano. Today [for Friday] we don’t use it because we only have it. I think it can give us a couple of tenths”, reflected Rins, before describing the best of the received version, when comparing it with the previous one.

“The new regulator will help us in a couple of corners, because the one we used until now makes the bike go down too fast, and that causes movements that reduce speed,” said the #42, who projects a complicated race, especially when seen measuring itself with the almighty Ducati. “I don’t think we can overtake either the Ducati or the official KTMs,” settled the Catalan.
