Suzuki returns to the MotoGP grid for the first time in three years with a wild card entry at Valencia this weekend with the bike being raced by the test rider, Randy de Puniet.

It sees the culmination in a project for the factory to return to MotoGP in 2015 with a two-man team, recently announced as Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales.

A show version of the GP bike, also known as the GSX-RR, was on display at the Milan Motorcycle Show (EICMA) so we took a closer look.

How will de Puniet get on this weekend? Is a top 10 possible?
