Bautista and Hopkins should stuff Suzuki and look elsewhere, if they do continue, they have themselves to blame to lose high profile riders, the riders deserve better than this from Suzuki.

Suzuki is on the way out anyway.

It will be a huge disappointment if Suzuki does not continue in MotoGP. Baustista has shown the bike is more than capable of competing against the likes of Ducati and satellite Yamaha/Honda.

re: "Rizla Suzuki team manager Paul Denning says his team will be back on track during post-season testing at Valencia this week, but concedes there is still no word on whether the manufacturer will continue into 2012."

wow, they are keeping their own lead boffin in the dark. not cool zeus... not cool. suzuki, just go ahead and "cancel christmas". it's okay. after the quake/tsunami/nuclear disaster, vale's poor performance, capi's retirement, the loss of simo, and devaluing consumers even BEFORE all this, can anybody really blame you...? kawasaki's been gone for what... 3 years now...?

I wish MotoGP would have considered an option in the rules to use 800cc machines, somewhere in the middle of the new rules and CRT.

Give the 800cc bikes 22.5L of fuel, 8 engines and a chance to compete cost effectively. This could have attracted satellite teams and passed on the RCV 212 and M1's to satellite teams who could put them in the hands of rookie riders and give them good enough kit to show their talent. Throwing those bikes away just seems worthless to me.

I hope that this doesn't seem harsh but I think every major manufacturer should have a team at the highest level. When Kawasaki pulled out I lost a lot of respect and quite frankly, for me personally it hurts their production image alot. The same will be said for suzuki if they do pull the plug. I think it borders on pathetic that these teams aren't fielding teams in the most prestigious and most demanding class. This is where they can employ their engineering brilliance. To see twelve bikes on the grid, half of them honda, is ridiculous. may be just one voice, but I will boycott gsx-r's if they pull the plug, as I have zxr's. Childish maybe, but that is how important I think it is.
