Today i’m going to unbox the Tamiya Suzuki GSX-RR ’20 in 1/12th scale. The newest 1/12th scale bike kit from Tamiya!
2020 was the a superb year for the GSX-RR in MotoGP racing, as the Suzuki works machine took the rider’s championship. Bearing the ECSTAR name of Suzuki’s own engine oil brand and adorned with a blue and silver color scheme reminiscent of the great Japanese brand’s bikes from the 1960s, the GSX-RR and its riders Joan Mir and Alex Rins consistently scored points throughout the season: both riders took a win, and Mir had a total of seven podiums as he bcame Suzuki’s first MotoGP class champion, and their first in the top class of riding since the GP500 class in 2000 – the perfect way to celebrate Suzuki’s centenary and the 60th anniversary of their first appearance in global road races. The GSX-RR debuted in the 2015 season and has been developed into a superb bike, with a 240hp 1,000cc inline-4 engine that achieves speeds of up to 340km/h, as well as refined aerodynamics. Don’t miss this chance to add a champion to your model collection, and check out just what makes a modern race bike tick.A Worthy Champion
The Tamiya Suzuki GSX-RR ’20 comes in the usual Tamiya box with the finished model up front with some information about the model. The Box is the normal bike format. On the side of the box some more information about the bike with a clear view on the engine. Inside the box you will see a devider which devides some parts from the bigger spreus. The Monster decals are after market (ignore that).
Let’s start the unboxing!
The first parts you see are the wheels, nuts and polycaps. Also included are the screwdriver and black hose for the brakes. Also the front part and clear parts are provided in small bags.
A white sprue contains the bodywork of the bike.
