Default Suzuki files turbocharged motorcycle patents?

The days of forced induction are upon us and after Kawasaki presented the supercharged Ninja H2 and H2R, Suzuki has reportedly filed patents for a turbocharged motorcycle. The Japanese automaker revealed the Recursion concept at the 2013 Tokyo motor show. Rumours of the bike entering production were denied by Suzuki early on, but it now appears the company has filed patents for a turbocharged motorcycle, with the United States Patent and Trademark Office being cited as the source.

The Recursion concept used a 588cc parallel twin engine which along with a single turbocharger, had its power boosted up to 99 BHP @ 8,000 rpm, with the peak torque of just over 100 Nm being delivered at a lowly 4,500 rpm.

Suzuki has yet to confirm their plans for such a motorcycle. The bike may not necessarily be a production version of the Recursion itself, but could be the product of a new Suzuki platform.

In my opinion it will be become expensive, as it will need 100bhp capable brakes, suspension, chassis, gearbox etc. But you are right it will be FTD

Almost all diesel cars come with a turbo charger

Besides, a supercharger will be more effective with a petrol engine than a turbo charger in boosting power since it is active compared to the passive turbo charger

The wagon R in japan used to come with a 660cc (limited mandated by the kei car legislation) turbo engine in the early 2000's, moreover it also had a 4*4 option too!
