As usual, the team to beat in the Endurance World Championship is the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team (SERT). Taking the 2013 title by a thin five-point margin though, SERT’s history of dominance in endruance racing is certainly being challenged. Biting at its heels are the factory teams from Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Honda — all of whom have strong teams for the 2014 season.

But the more things change, the more they stay the same — which applies equally well for the 2014 Suzuki GSX-R1000 which SERT will once again be campaigning in the EWC. The 2014 SERT Suzuki GSX-R1000 looks like almost a carbon-copy of last year’s machine, and we will just assume that they don’t want to change a winning formula.

At the helm of the SERT Suzuki GSX-R1000 are team regulars Vincent Philippe and Anthony Delhalle, who will be joined by Erwan Nigon and reserve rider Damian Cudlin. With 13 Endurance World Championship under its belt, SERT will look for its 14th title this year, and their title defense starts tomorrow with the Bol d’Or 24 Hour race at Magny-Cours, France.

    UGLY nose UGLY exhaust UGLY bike

  2. So you don’t like it?

  3. sonic says:

    Is there any reason why the tailpiece on the SERT bike never looks like it fits properly against the tank or is this just because of the extra large capacity of the tank?

  4. loose says:

    especially the nose (headlight) and the exhaust is what i like about that bike, besides the lovely livery. I hope the next GSXR1000 looks similar to this one, regarding the headlight, in first place. I prefer decent looks, like the models before the K9-series

  5. Mitch says:

    I think it looks great, but I’ve always liked function over form race bikes.

    Sonic: I’m betting the subframe is made especially for endurance racing for either more equipment and/or a more comfy ride for the longer race.
