don't count them out, Loris will do everything to put Suzuki at the sharp end, and Bautista is the real deal, if he doesn't start crashing.

Suzuki have a good team. Loris is expert at developing the bike, and if Alvaro gets a feeling for the Suzuki like he did for his 250 you will see things really start to happen at Suzuki...provided the engine makes enough power.

I think they can do all the development they want, but if they can't make a motor with plenty more BHPs then they will continue to struggle.

I know they have a much smaller development team than any of the other teams, but they're still a major player in the world market and should have the resources to build a quick engine.

With new rules coming into play in 2012 surely they need to drop the V4 in favour of something more along the lines of their more conventional GSXR engines with some adoption of the trick stuff from the V. Perhaps they even need to start do that sooner to gain a head start for 2012, seems the V is not the right route for them, even Honda are finding it difficult and this could also be attributed to their engine configuration. Yes I know the Duke is a V4 but they are running the desmo valve system which the japs would not dare to copy outright and its only Casey that truly get the best out of it :rolleyes:

There is no doubt about his talent and commitment. He's a thoroughbred professional and still fighting with a high degree of motivation in that age. How many could do that :) I would love to see him on the podium anytime, very decent and respectful man :)

Keep up with the good work Loris!

What a pleasure to hear from such a true professional, he is acting and talking like a true rider.

I hope Suzuki's new engine will give you a competitive edge.

I always admired Suzuki as a manufacturer, they seem very humble and work patiently, waiting for their moment.

They've been there before: in 2000 with Kenny Roberts Jr. Kevin Schwantz 1993. Franco Uncini 1982. Marco Lucchinelli 1981. Barry Sheene 1976 and 1977.

I'm patiently waiting for another one :)

I wish all the best to Loris Capirossi, hope he'll get the bike he deserves from his team.
