Suzuki working on new bike for 2015

Suzuki will roll out a heavily revamped new 1000cc MotoGP bike in time for the start of the 2015 pre-season testing campaign in Valencia in early November. There is no doubt the Japanese factory, which went into self-imposed exile at the end of 2011, is not returning next year to play second fiddle to dominant rivals Honda and Yamaha, with team...

Nice to hear

Nice to hear that Suzuki will be back. A shame that Dorna has neutured the regs so much that manufacturers cannot really develop something new. Would love to see a v6 or w config engine in Motogp. Now that is development.

 Unless Dani gets the sack from Honda, I can't see him going to Suzuki, he's on the best bike in the paddock already. Dovi and Aleix would be a good combination, being good riders and a bit of experience for development purposes.

whats this

We've ballsed up and built a full factory bike and it's about on par with the production Honda RC. should have stuck with what they knew with the V4,probably easier getting that up to power with all the restrictions in modern and future gps. It took Yamaha year's with many good riders to get their M1 inline 4 working

At the COTA test RDP was running similar times to the Ducati's. They were also using the stock ECU. If Dovi does go it'll be no worse than what he's on at the moment, and probably stands more chance of improving than the Ducati.

Firebird...

two good picks... although I am certain Bradley will up game even more in the 2nd half of the season. Scott will also start climbing the rankings and he's got a great mental attitude despite sounding like a footballer.  Maybe another year on the Honda...

Dovi - probably the most informed opinion of the lot given his 'factory' experience in the paddock and a solid rider. 

Would still like to see a swap between Jorge & Dani but I can't help thinking Jorge would demand a lot of dollar.. sorry, I meant Euros or Japanese Yen.   Ultimately Honda have the two fastest riders right now, so why change the formula?

Is it me or are Aprillia getting pushed out of the MotoGP paddock by DORMA, Five years ago we had them competing and providiing race winning bikes in both the 250 and 125. They got booted out of both when they said "four strokes only". Now the demise of CRT in Moto GP with the intro this year of the Factory Customer bikes. It seems to favour Honda who have a healthy intrest in all the classes now (Moto 3, 2, and GP).
