RDP going round on an 800 and probably injured half the year...what kind of cack handed effort at a works team is that ? ....why bother.

I'm not anti Suzuki, far from it, I had a GSXR.

At least Randy won't have to wait 3 full months just for an answer.

Paul Denning's screw and Bautista were doing a fantastic job, the gsvr at the end of the season was almost as fast as the factory Yamahas. This team together was working well and definitely had a promising future, in a perfect world they deserved a 2nd rider to help them to progress even faster.

I've always been a great supporter of the Suzuki cause, since day one. But their behavior lately is just showing they can't care less about motogp. In truth, they were probably embarrassed by their bike late success coz they would take any excuse to ask out.

Good luck Randy, even forced by the Dorna Suzuki says yes, pretty sure you won't ride a 1000cc before Suzuki's deadline in Brno 2012.

Suzuki: A complete waste of talent.

This is off the wall, but....How would the rules work if Suzuki made a new street legal bike in 2012 with the current 800 GP engine in it?

Could another Team (not the "official" factory) run the 2011 GP Suzuki as a CRT?? This would allow them to run the extra fuel, correct?

I would think that the handling advantage with the 800 and the extra power from the fuel would make it a competitive package.

@ mrc24x

A principle behind Claiming Rules regulations is that the engines have to be available for purchase by other teams. So if a chassis was fitted with Suzuki's 800cc engine, that same engine would have to be made available for other teams also. Given that Suzuki are looking at closing the GP program due to costs, I can't see them producing just a motor.
