Suzuki plan five European tests of new 1000 MotoGP bike

Suzuki plans to pitch its new factory 1000cc MotoGP bike against Honda, Yamaha and Ducati in at least three public tests in Europe in 2013. The Japanese factory will also take part in two private tests this season as it plots a full-time return to the MotoGP world championship with a two-rider effort in 2014. While there is no approval for a...

Some of you think Spies is finished after one nightmare season. In my view he has played his cards well taking a one year contract with Ducati then most likely waiting for Suzuki to return if that does not happen he'll go back to WSBK the series what was to great to him.

No doubt

Spies will go back to WSBK and do well there, c'mon he won a world championship there. Prehap's Yamaha USA could put a deal together and get him and Edwards racing in good ole boys racing national guared marines budwieser racing.org. Why not?

That would be a perfect scenario race Spies race for Yamaha in WSBK again but the main question is would he want to race for Yamaha again in a different class considering what happened in MotOGP while racing for them.

Stunning !

If it goes as good as it looks, they've got the title sewn up !!! What a stunning machine - pure biker porn ! I for one will be glad to see Suzuki back on the grid and really hope they're competitive.

structures

As YamGYTR asks, I wonder what structure will 'run' Suzuki. I believe they need and should have a full factory team. This gives clarity of responsibilty and direction and allows them to fight on an equal footing with Honda and Yamaha. Having a partner muddies all parameters- not least £s, a team needing/wanting to make a profit- not the factory teams concern. things Under Paul Denning's guidance it was hard to judge exactly where the package was: Ceratinly Alvaro looked good onboard towards the end of 2011 especially. He seems no better, really, on the allegedly far superior factory RCV, oddly. Does this suggest the GSV-R was not far off? I know that they ran very different electronics hardware to others (Mitsubishi) and frequently that was blamed. As was budget. As was rider choice. As was single rider. But what about Paul Denning. I'm not trying to do him down but he doesn't really seem like the first choice to run such an outfit given their lack of otright success on the global or national stage- at best the 'nearly' men. Maybe this is unfair? Maybe in GPs they did better than their budget allowed. Another reason to have Suzuki Factory Racing. Dorna's ridiculous stance of no more teams a nonsense. If Suzuki link with Aspar and Kawasaki possibly with Forward Racing and satellite teams now neatly structured, what would Dorna say to for instance, BMW- they must join with...whom? Even if joining a very low ranking team or being held to ransom to buy was acceptable to BMW, what happens if KTM, Aprilia, Norton, and others want in? ...It all seems as confused as this post does reading it back.
