Suzuki to enter new 1000cc bike in selected races in 2013?

Suzuki could be back on the MotoGP grid with a new factory GSV-R 1000cc machine as early as 2013. Veteran Japanese test rider Nobuatsu Aoki confirmed in Sepang last week that he was testing Suzuki’s new 1000cc project recently at the Ryuyo test track in Japan. He hinted that if testing was successful then Suzuki would possibly consider selected wild card entries...

suzi

the good ol boys suzuki are very much needed i think in 2012. they showed real promise last season. i paid good money at silverstone to go on the pit lane walkabout. the only team out was old faithfull rizzla boys. they always went the extra mile to gather support and fans. now they have to start from scratch. i wonder if ducati used any of theyre expetese on the gp12. they will be missed this year. still its given alvro a stint on a competetive machine this year, just a shame about how he got ride. rip simmo58.

AhhhYeah !!

Rossi on the Suzuki !! Would be brilliant, cant see they would have the budget though to run that. Suzuki should be on the grid, its a real shame they arent starting the year on it !! Perhaps we will see Hopper do the wildcards unless his season in WSBK is going too well for the distraction?? Its a shame that Suzuki seem to have lost their way a bit really, it wasnt in too distant memory that they won the GP crown, and had Hopper running near the front, and were dominating BSB with JR. Would love to see them running near the front again, which looks like a real prospect next year in WSBK...

Suzuki

It was a shame that Suzuki pulled out just as they seemed to have got the bike sorted. But the way things keep changing in MotoGP i fear their development of a 1000 may be wasted, by 2014 the rules will have changed again!

Another question if Suzuki do decide to return who will be willing to ride the bike Ben Spies I doubt he would after the way he got treated when he last rode for them.

Have to agree with

djjonnibgood.  The rules will likely change by 2014 and the Zuk won't conform.  Suzuki's problem is lack of money due to their fan base not being loyal to the brand, but loyal to low prices. They make a lot of cheap bikes and that's why their buyers actually buy them.  If they were priced at the same level as their direct competitors, hardly anyone would buy Suzuki by first choice.  They have the least technologically advanced or sorted machines of the lot, barring their RM-Z450 MX bike.  And they only have one bike with a cult following and that is the Busa.  They don't have much else anyone is really interested in.  While everyone else is moving forward, Suzuki is just trying to keep their doors open.  In the US, out of the japanese and Euro machines, Suzuki has the lowest representation.  IMO, they need to keep developing tech but they really don't need to race in GP.  GP rules limit the kinds of technology OEMs want to test so why enter a GP test?
