Cameron Donald on Rizla Suzuki MotoGP Bike

Loris Capirossi may a have rode a GSX-R 1000 for a parade lap at the Isle of Man, but his Suzuki GSV-R MotoGP machine that he used during the Qatar GP to celebrate his 300th grand prix race was given to TT rider Cameron Donald for a spin around the mountain course.

A spin isn’t exactly the right word, because Donald put the 800cc prototype through a fast lap and hit a top speed of 325km/h (202 mph) down the Sulby straight and to put things into perspective, HM Plant’s Keith Amor in the Senior TT with a Honda CBR 1000RR did 310 km/h (192.
8 mph)Here’s what Donald had to say:”Man, that was just amazing! I thought the bike would be really difficult and twitchy to ride, but it was great.
I was expecting to ride a steady lap, but it was so good that I was able to get a great rhythm going and pick up a fast pace.
“In fact, it was so good, I reckon we need to get some regulation changes for next year, as this thing with a few more laps on it, would really fly here.
