It's definitely a noise control solution. It says so right in Suzuki's first generation SET valve literature. An added benefit might be improved low speed torque, but that is not the reason for the valve.

If the low speed torque improvement was so advantageous, Suzuki, Yamaha and the others would be using them in racing to get the drive out of the corners with the Ducatis.
