@Yamaha

True....but a better bike equals higher expectations. With greater risk comes the potential for greater reward or failure, which carries into the view of the Suzuki seat being a risky commitment for a riders future. Plenty of history in Suzuki's past seasons in MOTOGP to solidify that.
Imho Alvaro capitalized on the risk this year.

AB has been a great surprise... Suzuki finally had some decents results in the 2nd part of the season (apart 2007, it never happened with the gsv-r) & I'm sure with a talent like Alvaro they've got the rider to make some improvments again... Last Bautista's tests at Valencia were very impressive. He seems to be a good factory rider

Maybe it's true that Tech 3 Yamaha's YZR-M1 is a lot better right now, and i don't argue with that. But be realistic pal, the seats is filled. Besides, i don't think AB gonna do the reckless thing by leaving the GSVR behind. Do you want to know the reason??? The reason is, Rizla Suzuki MotoGP is now running a single factory bike. That's means AB can create and modify his own bike to suits his riding style. Who could refuse that kind of opportunity?? Even the likes of VR46 would like to expect the same situation..

Agree ladies and gentleman..?!

gotta disagree with you nobody
that bike sucks because they only changed the ram air inlet since the first gsvr and this one has an 800cc engine. 2007 was only good because of tires that bike has always sucked.

So many of you reckon the Suzuki has a slow engine?
When was the last time you saw it get passed in a straight line? (or under braking)?
Sure they seem to have an issue with tyres on a cold or greasy surface, (possibly too stiff chassis??? or electronics not upto the job???)
If Alvaro starts 2011 uninjured I think him & the GSV-R will surprise a few people. Generally he starts from a bad grid position and is the only guy moving forward in the race. If he gets his qualifying sorted and starts from a higher grid position, watch out!
I think Bautista and the Suzuki are easily fit to fight for the top 5. Not a bad effort for a small factory
