For those that don’t remember, the Suzuki Recursion Concept was based around a turbocharged 588cc two-cylinder engine, and the way it looked, it got us totally hooked to the concept, and then there was the turbo-charged engine. It was a dream come true for the motorcyclist in us. The idea was to achieve litre-bike power from a middleweight-sized machine, thus offering enthusiasts high-power but nimble machines to ride.
The news that Suzuki is putting the Recursion into production isn’t too far-fetching. We are indeed waiting for more concrete news regarding the same, till date we will let you measure out how much faith to give that report, but make no mistake that a new era in motorcycle motor design is upon us. The Japanese OEMs are looking to Forced Induction to help make smaller, more efficient, more powerful machines, and bikes like the Kawasaki Ninja H2 and the Kawasaki Ninja H2R show us how serious the Japanese are about bringing these models to reality.
We have already seen forced induction gain a foothold in the four-wheeled space, so it comes as no surprise that the two-wheeled world would follow suit. That Suzuki would find the courage to produce the Recursion, after seeing Kawasaki’s successful launch of the supercharged H2, is believable as well. Suzuki Motor company is in desperate need of a model or two that will revitalize interest in the company’s motorcycles — a bike like the Recursion could do just the very thing.
