Spies to Ride GSV-R in Japan

Ben Spies, 2006 and 2007 AMA Superbike champion, is reportedly in Japan at to meet with top-level Suzuki executives and to test a GSV-R 800 similar to the one he will ride after the Sepang round. Spies will visit Suzuki headquarters in Hamamatsu and will test at Suzuki’s Ryuyo Testing Grounds. Purposes of the visit are to fit Spies to the bike and to generally familiarize him with the operation of it. It has been rumored that Spies will also test after the season-ending race at Valencia, but Paul Denning, Rizla Suzuki Team Manager, has downplayed those rumors citing a full agenda for the test including welcoming Loris Capirossi to the team.
