Af en toe mag je jezelf wel eens verwennen. Met een nieuwe motor bijvoorbeeld. En uiteraard wil je enkel het beste, exclusiefste en snelste spul. Misschien past een Suter-BMW Ex-MotoGP racer wel in jouw garage? De veiling loopt nog 2 dagen, dus waag je kans!
- This Suter BMW MMX1 Claiming Rule Teams (CRT) is a storied modern MotoGP racer, which is said to have been confirmed by Suter’s Chief Technical Officer, Alessandro Giussani, as having been ridden in the 2013 MotoGP World Championship by Danilo Petrucci, for the Came IodaRacing Project team.
- While competing in the 250cc World Championships, Eskil Suter founded Suter Racing Technology, which designed and built motorcycles for Moto2, Moto3, WSBK, MXGP and S1GP, as well as MotoGP with the MMX1.
- The MMX1 was built under the new ‘Claiming Rule Teams’ regulations, introduced for the 2012 MotoGP season to coincide with the switch from 800cc to 1,000cc engines, whereby an engine could be forcefully ‘claimed’ by a rival team if it was exceptionally successful.
- It was intended to boost privateer entries in the MotoGP class, while discouraging the use of expensive or secretive technologies.
- Chassis number 054-002, this MMX1 CRT has now been with the seller in Zaandam, Netherlands, for around a year.
- Power comes from a 1,000cc BMW Motorrad superbike-specification four-cylinder, coupled to a six-speed transmission.
- It has now covered around 300km since being subjected to a comprehensive engine rebuild.
EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES
- This MMX1’s 1,000cc BMW Motorrad superbike-specification four-cylinder has Race Calibration Kit 2 electronics, which have been re-tuned for smoother track day riding, and now also features new pistons, conrods and bearings.
- It rides on an Öhlins MotoGP-specification front fork and rear shock absorber, with adjustable preload.
- The wheels are O.Z Racing forged magnesium items, shod with Bridgestone V02F slick tyres.

- Accompanying the vehicle will be a spare fairing set, the currently fitted MotoGP-specification exhaust silencer, a quieter track day exhaust silencer, a set of O.Z Racing wheels.
- Its resprayed paintwork is reported to be in excellent condition. The seller notes that all sponsorship logos are painted, rather than being transferred or stuck on.
- The handlebar grips have light surface marks, though the bike’s major touchpoints present well overall.
