GSX-RR!!!

GSX-RR!!!
The joy of the week, the news that nobody expected, what made us all happy as a clam is without a doubt the announcement of the 2020 Championship Suzuki GSX-RR with which Tamiya just surprised everybody.

The model looks sensational, in line with the latest creations of the brand, with an extensive parts list of the engine and the detail levels we are used to. And as is already a delicious custom, a set is also offered for updating the radiator and front fork with metal parts, decals and photo-etched parts.

Arrival dates to Europe are still estimated for the end of the year (if customs, ships, viruses and all the rest allow), so this Christmas promises to be reaaally joyful :D

Reserve your Suzuki GSX-RR by Tamiya at SpotModel and... Merry Christmas!!! :-D

It's been a while since Tamiya delighted us with a new Moto GP kit, but they finally did it with the 2020 champion Suzuki, and boy it was worth the wait! The quality in the details, such as the masks to help us paint the fairing, the pit stand to be able to properly display the motorcycle once assembled, the transparent parts for the anti-slip pads on the tank... they are all awesome! And of course, it also includes a fully detailed engine and the rest of the chassis parts so nothing is left to chance. Total eye candy!
