It doesn't matter how much info they have if they aren't going to do anything with it. Suzuki for whatever reason has never had too many updates or really improved their bikes in any year. It's like they launch the bike over the winter and go on vacation until it's time to build one for the next year. It's like they dump all this money into MotoGP with a lukewarm attitude towards success. If they win or have great year it's good, if they don't, well, that's fine too.

I think (i have said before) they should build a gsx-r with pneumatic valves as their gp bike. the gsvr sucks has nothing in common with the road going bikes and obviously doesn't work. The yamaha, kawasaki are very similar in design and engine configuration to their road going bikes. Kawasaki runs and inline 4 but gp is a big bang i believe. Suzukis do well in the superbike races(not world sbk but in ama, bsb, etc)the gsvr is wierd looking totally different engine configuration and riding position, even the journalists that get to ride them at the end of the season say the bikes feel wierd. They need to throw it away and start fresh and stick to what they are good at. 2 bikes or 4.

Agreed. Suzuki make great, grunty in line fours. So why didn't they do the same in MotoGP?

Whilst Vermin has the only Suzuki MotoGP win, the use of non-GP riders (until Loris) has hampered progress.

Suzuki won't get a chance to sack Chris cos he'll be leaving of his own accord. He needs to resurrect his career on a decent bike even if its in WSBK.

i am a cv fan but for me he will be lucky to be in motogp next year, suzuki would be the last bike to be on. maybe pramac ducati or tec3 if not back to ten kate or maybe ducati sbk. he has the talent to be in the top 5 every race but not on the suzuki .

man i just dont know. what is suzuki's problem? the bike is ugly. the tail section is ugly. the nose cant be aerodynamic as ugly as it is. it used to be fast around the corners on the tyre edge. all it needed was some grunt and top end. i just dont know. i agree about the gsx r. just copy that as close as you can still being prototype, fairings and all, and get up to speed already. shwantz please get them straight.
