The next round takes place at Jerez on 7th September, so there's plenty of time to get your order placed.

Suzuki GB Marketing Manager, Rob Cooper, said, "Following the popularity of the Tyco Suzuki replica GSX-R600 released earlier this summer, we're delighted to follow it up with a Voltcom Crescent Suzuki edition GSX-R1000. In the UK we're in a great position, where we have a British-based team with homegrown riders competing on the world stage, so it's an excellent opportunity to show support your support."
