Suzuki suspended its MotoGP activities at the end of  2011 season, citing the global economic crisis, but since 2012 a prototype was spotted testing in several occasions. Initially the prototype was dubbed GSV-R by the media, like its predecessor.

In 2013 it started to take part in official tests, with Randy de Puniet and Nobuatsu Aoki as development and test riders. The machine was now internally codenamed XRH-1. On September 30, 2014, at the Intermot fair, Suzuki officially announced to return in the Premier class in 2015, with Aleix Espargaró (Spain), who was ranked seventh in the MotoGP class last season, and Maverick Viñales (Spain), who has stepped up from the Moto2 class, as regular riders.

The prototype of the GT racer was given the name GSX-RR.

The photos below shows the 2015 GSX-RR#14 that Randy de Puniet debuted at Valencia on November 7-9th of 2014 as a wild-card entry, competing for Team Suzuki MotoGP. He failed to complete more than half of the race.

On March 6, 2015, prior to the beginning of the 2015 season, Suzuki unveiled its MotoGP team name as Team Suzuki Ecstar, a team competing in the MotoGP class of the world’s premier motorcycle racing series, the FIM* Road Racing Grand Prix (MotoGP).

Ecstar is the brand name of Suzuki’s genuine high-performance engine oil, which has been on sale since 1984. It has been sold mainly in Japan and exported from Japan. Its name derives from the words Ecstatic and Star, meaning “the star of ecstatic performance.”

The photos below shows the 2015 GSX-RR that test riders Nobuatsu Aoki and Randy de Puniet debuted at Valencia on November 7-9th of 2014, competing as Team Suzuki MotoGP.

GSX-RR is installed with in-line four-cylinder engine that realises a strong, flexible engine character, fuel efficiency, and durability at a high level. The frame has a layout that keeps its width slim for both manoeuvrability and aerodynamic performances, and optimises body strength and weight balance. For the 2019 season, the machine was developed to balance cornering performance from the point where the machine decelerates to enter the corner, to the point where it accelerates at the corner exit, at a high level.
