Suzuki ‘investigating’ GSX-R125 wheel failures

In News

SUZUKI has launched an investigation into the GSX-R125 wheel collapses which hit a number of teams at the track this weekend.

As UK Clubsport reported yesterday, at least three different squads and approximately half a dozen wheel failures struck the little GSX-Rs at Freetech Endurance’s opening round at Whilton Mill yesterday.

Our team contacted Suzuki UK for comment and the manufacturer came back today revealing that a full investigation was currently underway.

A statement reads:

Suzuki has confirmed that it is aware of reported instances of GSX-R125 front wheel failures during the weekend’s season-opening Freetech Endurance Championship round at Whilton Mill.

The GSX-R125 has been raced in the same championship prior to this weekend – including as an official entry in 2020 – during which period there were no reported issues.

However, Suzuki is, naturally, very keen to understand what has caused this cluster of failures and is conducting an investigation to ascertain the cause.

Suzuki has had no reported issues from customers using non-modified GSX-R125s during regular road use since its introduction in 2017.

Stay tuned to UK Clubsport for the latest on wheelgate.
