Davide Brivio: Jack of all trades becomes a master of one
Play • 32 min

What does it take to be a MotoGP™ Team Manager? Well, if you want to be anything like Davide Brivio, try your hand at just about every job there is in a motorcycle racing team, from grass roots, to professional and then to the very top level! He has seen it, done it, and got the t-shirt. Then, he started all over again at Suzuki! With the Hamamatsu-based manufacturer on the cusp of a triple crown World Championship season in 2020, we get to know the figurehead behind it all, how the project restarted once they left MotoGP™ initially in 2011 and what the whole team’s philosophy has been to bring Suzuki back to the very top of the sport.

Sit back, enjoy, and we’ll see you next time for the final episode in the 2020 Last On The Brakes season! :)

Front End Chatter #131
Hello and welcome to Front End Chatter E131, Britain’s favourite and longest serving motorcycling podcast, possibly either or, who’s counting? What’s for sure is we’re indebted and abetted by Bennetts, the bike insurance specialists, and www.bikesocial.co.uk, the marvellous motorcycling website. And on FEC this week, Simon and Martin chatter about: * Triumph’s new Speed Triple 1200 RS – how big will it be really, is it bored and/or stroked, and will Triumph go after hyper-naked revs and power, or keep the Speed Trip a raunchy but slightly more useful super-naked? * when is a spy shot not a spy shot? * guesswork around Aprilia’s new RSV4 and Tuono, for whom the passenger has always been a "barely tolerated guest" according to Aprilia – and wouldn’t it be nice if they made a CapoNord V4? We also dive in the FEC sack and ponder delights such as: * when is it too cold to get your pegs down and why motorcycling shouldn't be a faith-based activity * where should we put our feet when we're riding? * how racing isn't necessarily a mandatory next step on from track days * what's the adventure bike equivalent of a ZZR1400 for £6-£7k? * and much, much more! A bit. Thank you very much for listening, thanks to Bennetts and www.bikesocial.co.uk for putting up with us, and please keep your thoughts, musings, queries and fact correcting coming to: anything@frontendchatter.com Catch us on the Instas and Twitters: @SimonHbikes @Mufga
