Heard it all before.
The things a bucket of she it, and probably will go down in history as the least successful bike in moto GP. Sorry forgot about Kawasaki. Lucky that 3 cylinder thing McCoy is riding hasn't hit the track yet, else there would be even redder faces at Suzuki.

Capirex is a wasted talent on this bike!! and unfortunately it gives the impression that he is washed up! Capirossi to a better fit right now but I would love to see the old boy on a Yamaha! before he goes.. I just don't know what Suzuki can do to get that junk working..I mean surely they do not show up each year saying "well let us settle in to our usual last place position!" WTF!! They need a satellite team for development or they just really need a strong development rider like Nicky, Rossi, or Colin. Maybe with the new crop of MT2 riders we will see more youngsters graduate with bike development ability!

I remember Kenny Roberts Sr's words, "I can't believe how Suzuki got things so wrong!" This was in response to the switch to the 4 stroke era from their successful 2-smoker with his son on it. I think they need to bin the whole thing and start fresh with an in-line 4. Hmm, maybe just tweak the GSXR design with all the unobtanium bits available to the GP guys. Seemed to work with Yamaha's R1/M1.

I appreciate Capirossi's positive outlook and not ranting and raving and tossing a hissy fit like some other riders out there. The bike is what it is, his job is to win on it and ride it as best as he can. Good for 301 races! Keep up the hard work! Very worthy of respect.

If you want to improve, ditch the Mitsubishi electronics and switch to Magnetti Marelli like everyone else.

Suzuki can build a decent engine, the electronics have sucked since the dawn of the 4-stroke era!!
