STONER

I hope it is stoner. 3 WC from 3 different factory. I bet he could do it since japan bike almost the same. but Suzuki even can't afford to pay his daily wage I bet.

Yep, get some new blood or fuck off home! To tie up two bikes with geriatric also rans would be an absolute waste, the only leeway would be to let Crutchlow in for a direct comparison with one of the current frontrunners.

And if some halfwit suggests one more single time the name of an American, ANY fucking American rider who can do a motoGP bike justice, I'm gonna reach through their screen and slap the stupid cunt silly.

Motogp return....but for how long ?

I hope Suzuki have made the right strategic decision to invest in Motogp.

Does this mean they'll reduce their effort in other racing classes or just spend more overall ?

The Suzuki car & bike businesses are both making BIG losses with no obvious solutions on the horizon imo.

Can they afford to be competitive in Motogp for long ?

Kawasaki made the right decision imo to focus their racing resources on production racing & it's paying-off now - & Kawasaki's bike business is making much more profits than Suzuki's.

Looking good

@ kawa I wouldn't worry too much about how long, for the bike to have got to this stage would require a significant investment, so I would expect medium-term finance to be in place (at least 3 years). After that I guess it depends on results.

 

If Yamaha take the ridiculous decision to sack Cal, then I hope he ends up with Suzuki for no other reason that he will finally be getting a decent pay cheque for the first time in his career. People wondered why he would want to ride for Ducati last year when the bike is so obviously a shitbox, well his salary would have been in the region of 5-10 times larger than at Tech3. When your career is as short as his you need to cash in, fast.

 

I hope they do well enough to get Kawasaki into MotoGP too, then we might finally see what Tom Sykes is capable of on a pure prototype. I'm guessing he would be quick.

Hi Bob Buttersby

Suzuki ?    How about Hopkins and Spies   or   Hayden and Spies   or if you want new blood how about Blake Young from AMA and Spies.

Now you just knew that was going to happen didn't you ?

Saturn, is it any wonder I think you are a deadset dickhead?

The AMA couldn't run the hot fuckin' bath that Hopkins and Spies should be recuperating their broken bodies in! What does that tell you about how I rate Blake Young?

Prepare yourself for a slapping...

Better photos

Here are some links to photos on motogp.com of the bike without the pointless MCN slapped all over it. Looks completely different to the 2011 Suzuki machine, much nicer, compare it to the link below
