Jerez MotoGP test: Rins breaks new swingarm aero device

Ecstar Suzuki’s Alex Rins debuted, as expected, a new swingarm aero device on his GSX-RR today at the Jerez MotoGP test but a trip in the gravel broke it after only a few laps.

The young Spaniard worked through a list of test objectives including a new specification of swingarm new setup configurations and some improvements in electronics over the course of the day and the new device was fitted only for Rins to snap it.

“Today we’ve done a full day of work, testing a lot of things and completing a lot of laps. We found a lot of positive things, and I liked the settings that we tried,” said Rins.

“Now we head to Le Mans with a really strong package and I’m happy with what we’ve done. I ran off when trying the new swingarm device, so I didn’t get to try it much. Instead we went back to our original plan of testing a new swingarm and focusing on electronics.”
