Turbocharged to produce 100 Nm at 4,500 rpm.
The futuristic Suzuki Recursion Concept which world premiered at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show paid a visit to the EICMA 2014 that took place last month in Milan, Italy.
The compact prototype has the dimensions of an average 250 cc fully faired motorcycle but it packs in a punchy torque which would put some of the litre-class superbikes to shame. The party trick is the 588 cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine that is fed by a turbocharger.
The name is derived from the world ‘recur’ meaning to occur again, which is to say that this is not Suzuki’s first attempt at a forced induction two wheeler. Back in 1983, the manufacturer experimented with the XN85 turbo bike.
Coming back to the Recursion, the motor is claimed to offer 100 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 100.33 Nm of torque which is accessible from as early as 4,500 rpm. The prospect of a motorcycle weighing around 160 kg accelerating with 100 Nm of torque for most part of its rev range is definitely something to be very excited about.
The motorcycle features an aerodynamic bodywork, TFT dashboard, single large front disc brake, single sided swing arm and an underbelly exhaust.
