Suzuki Recursion patent points to production plans
Why else would Suzuki want to make the show bike a working design
SUZUKI’S turbo-charged Recursion looks closer to becoming a production model, with a recent patent showing the concept refined into a working design.
The 588cc Recursion is clearly recognisable in the sketches but changes including a new air intake point to an ambition to make it more than a showpiece.
The parallel-twin Recursion was first unveiled in Tokyo in 2013, where Suzuki said it would make 100hp and 74lbft.
Where the show bike has a central headlight, the patent features two side-by-side, with an intake in the middle feeding air to an intercooler. The refinements would not be necessary if Suzuki only intended the concept to continue doing the rounds at major bike shows.
Published on March 26 this year, the patent application says: ‘In order to improve a fuel economy of an engine and to improve an engine power in a vehicle such as a motorcycle, there is a case where a reduction of engine displacement and a supercharger are combined…
‘If the supercharger is used, a temperature of air pressurized by the supercharger becomes high, which causes, if no measure is taken, a reduction of intake efficiency. For cooling an intake air in order not to sacrifice the intake efficiency, an intercooler is added.’
