I have mixed feelings about it. I have been a fan of Suzuki since Barry Sheene was on the RG500 in 1974.
But what have they done in recent years ? Nothing.
I think they should withdraw and come back in a few year's time with an exciting new rider, like in 1987 !

Sadly MotoGP has become so irrelevant to road bikes who cares?
It's always a pity to see a great sport wither in lean times like these but you can hardly blame them for not bothering, it's a niche sport plainly determined to travel as far up its own fundament as it can.
Prototype 4 strokes.
Thanks for that Honda.
Nevermind, maybe in a couple of years when everyone else has decided it isn't worth the effort or money we'll end up with a Moto1 series with eveyone watching modified Fireblade 1000's.
Oh joy.

Pulling out altogether makes more sense than struggling on with a one-rider setup (and on an 800, at that). As we've seen this year, with one rider, however able, a team has no cover against the normal risks of qualifying and racing, and insufficient development input compared to multi-rider manufacturers. Far better for Suzuki to spend the money in WSB or even BSB instead. However, what is good for Suzuki is bad for MotoGP - based on the testing so far, the CRT bikes would hardly manage to win the Moto2 event, let alone compete in the big class. I think Dorna has a real problem here.

The End is Nigh for motogp !!! Get rid of it now and lets see the likes of Stoner, Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Rossi and the rest slugging it out on the production bikes in WSB. what a spectacle that would be. 2 races every weekend and a massive grid. Dorna must see that motogp is dying a slow death !!

Agree with iRONIC - end the MotoGP bore, and create the "WSBK GP" championship - pooling riders and teams to create a 'super' championship. I think everyone pretty much agrees that World Supers offers the best racing, yet some would argue the best riders are in GP - why not bring them all together, surely that would offer the best comprimise in terms of entertainment and cost ????
