The face is marked. Between his wrinkles and his glasses, there are a dozen world championship titles, dozens of victories, hundreds of races, and an extraordinary reputation built on 30 years of collaboration with Suzuki. How to sum up the career of Dominique Méliand ? Impossible, except with a good big book. So many men have accompanied him, so many fans are vaccinated to his team, so many anecdotes are around him. And today, Suzuki France pays him a tribute that his team deserves beyond measure: the Suzuki GSX-R 1000 S.E.R.T replica.
The most efficient sports car ever designed by Hamamatsu can thank Dominique, her drivers and her team for bringing her and her glorious 750 GSX-R grandmother so many victories. And what better than a limited series for that. Dom, she said, here is my answer to all these years of glory: a decoration entirely copied from the machine entered in the 2013 World Endurance Championship.
Everything is there: the eternal blue and white color, the rear shrouded in Yoshimura red, the sponsors on the shoe, the racing screen with double MRA curvature, the fork protectors similar to elements of quick crutch, and the little touch magic: the n ° 1 affixed to the sides of the fork crown and the seat cowl – the same locations as on the official machine.
No, it is not enough. A sports motorbike must sing. The 185 horses can be expressed here in a Yosh R77J titanium pot. Some small elements are supplied as standard to reinforce the racing touch. Carbon crankcase protectors, buffers attached to the frame, a pair of diabolos at the end of the swingarm; and we finish the range with the little essentials: a cover, a stand, and a fan pack including a T-shirt, a cap and a fleece.
Let’s save the best for last. Get on it! Insert the key, abandon the dashboard to branch off on the upper tee. This little plaque, contemplate it well. There are only 50, engraved with the name and for the SERT, with the signature of Méliand himself.
If you are one of the half-hundred lucky owners of this machine, you can now ride between fantasy and sport. Put on a combarde; start; Let yourself be carried away by the legend of the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team. Dare to provoke fate and maybe you will come across the Yamaha R1 GMT 94 Replica. The magic would then be total. The auras of the two most famous protagonists of Endurance would thus cross swords again on the road. SERT / GMT – Méliand / Guyot – GSX-R / R1. Suddenly, on the half-handlebars of these legendary ersatz, the road no longer exists. The dream takes hold of your mind. The bleachers, spectators, vibrators, timing panels are born from your imagination and your memories. Welcome to the next world, the one where nothing will ever be the same again.
In short: in addition to its efficiency on the road and on the track, the 1000 GSX-R Suzuki Endurance Racing Team offers the following components as standard:
– Specific decoration combining paint and stickers
– Yoshimura R77J titanium exhaust
– MRA double curvature screen
