After showing its Recursion concept during the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Suzuki’s mission at introducing turbochargers in bikes is clear. Charging this fact further are the apparent rumours of said concept hitting production soon that have cropped up in recent months.
And lets not forget the fact that the S-brand’s has already trademarked names for the model and filed patents surrounding its powertrain.
If anything, Suzuki is indeed a step closer to that after displaying its EX7 engine at the on-going 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The compact and turbocharged two-cylinder mill stood as a centrepiece within its stand at the show, with many presuming it to be made for the Recursion.
Besides it having twin camshafts (DOHC) and four valves, Suzuki did not reveal much about its new turbocharged and intercooled parallel twin. The unit likely displaces about 588cc, which was the quoted engine size of the Recursion concept. Furthermore, the concept also envisioned the mill to generate just over 100hp and at least 101Nm of torque too – not too shabby for its size indeed.
There is still no sight of the Recursion concept’s production version during the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, which likely suggest that we will only see it next year or early in 2017. However, we are led to believe that Suzuki could perform a surprise reveal during this year’s edition of EICMA that takes place in just several weeks time in Milan, Italy.
