It is 1 of the nicest looking bikes in the paddock, Colour scheme defiantly.
Heard a few comments that Hopkins will stay with Crescent Suzuki and maybe Tommy Hill will be going with them to WSBK!

PI is the best place for Suzuki to have a wildcard rider since this track suit their bike well.

But, who is the best Suzuki rider in the world right now? It didn't pop up even one name in my mind...

I'm riding suzuki since i was young until this second, and i've been followed their stories since 500 back in the 90's. So my trusts to suzuki is undoubtful. So its really sad if they decide to leave. If the fans want to see 10 or less riders in the grid, let them have it. Lets see if there still a "show" when you see stoner riding like crazy 5 seconds ahead the other riders in just 2 laps. Suzuki don't need motogp, is motogp who needs Suzuki, for the sake of the show, tell that to Dorna. Please dont make motogp a boring place by letting stoner racing by himself.

I would much rather Suzuki go all out to win the WSBK championship, With that I mean 2 fully blown works bikes and major support for the team.
Get Hopkins and say Tommy Hill to be riders.
Thay would have a lot more chance of winning this Championship as opposed to being one of the also rans in Moto Gp.
Sad but true.

A couple of years ago (maybe last year?) the GSX-R from Austrailian superbikes set a quicker lap than the GSV-R800. It was dry, not the wet! So PI might not suit there bike well. Suzuki have also tended to go better in warm weather, rather than cold, and a track that has a corner called siberia, makes me think that it might be cold....
Let's hope that Suzuki keep plugging away, as the bike is better this year, and a 1000 based on the GSX-r has to be a good thing, the k8 was seen as one of the seminal superbike engines.

Have they built an 1000cc machine or would they continue next year with the 800...and if so, what's the point in that?

It would be a big blow for MotoGP to lose Suzuki but it might happen.

So the real truth is, most of us or maybe all of us racing do feel sad and lost if Suzuki finaly decided to quit MotoGP at the end of this season.. Especially me, i am always a fan of Suzuki and always gonna support/cheering them every season (i think you all know..).

Looks like MotoGP gonna lost the "RACING THING" in future :(
