Ecstar Suzuki boss Davide Brivio is unconvinced with the new swingarm Alex Rins and Joan Mir tested at Misano and says it’s doubtful they will use it this weekend.

Mir had already given it a shakedown at Misano last weekend and both riders tried it over the course of the day but Brivio said it didn’t bring any marked improvements.

“It’s been a positive day and a good test where we went through several different things. We tested a new swing arm which Joan had already tried last weekend, but today we had the chance to look at it in more depth,” said Brivio.

“Alex tried it for the first time today. At the moment we’re not fully convinced that it’s an improvement, so we’re not planning to introduce it at the moment.

“Then we worked on electronics and settings, trying different ways to set up the bike, despite the fact that both riders are happy with the performance of the GSX-RR right now. We also tried tyre options.”
