Put aside all the **** happened to Suzuki, one thing 4 sure that i'll always be a loyal big fan to the Suzuki..! And i BELIEVE they will be BACK..!

Btw bout the CRT stuff, i got no problem with that. But one thing that really pissed is why the hell they using a modified engine from mass production bikes?! It should be a prototype engine too..!

They won't be back and MotoGP is now on a VERY slippery slope. The competition of the 500's has now long gone and won't return. How can it?? The whole circus has become less attractive as the years have gone by and as much as Dorna have held a gun to peoples heads this recession is going to take years to get over.

The CRT teams won't be competitive, they're there to make up the numbers.

It does not seem to have got through to most people that MotoGP racing has become unsustainable except to the richest manufacturers - it has to change.The reasoning behind manufacturers teams - to increase sales- really is no longer viable.Costs have spiralled out of control and if truth be told Suzuki will not be the last to withdraw.Taking Moto 2 as an example,the racing is excellent with large grids,the fact that the engines are low tech really is irrelevant - the same must happen to MotoGP.If action is not taken soon the premier class of motorcycle racing will die.

CRT is a regulatory nightmare. Just put a 16,000rpm rev limit on the sport, and increase fuel capacity to 24L. The formula will bring new manufacturers into the sport, and horsepower limit will drastically increase the spectacle.

Teams should be allowed to use production engines, but an all-CRT formula is a gimmick dreamed up by Dorna to pay off the absurd investment Bridgepoint made in 2006.

everyone should realise that it doesnt matter wether the bikes are pure prototypes or crt in future, as long as its good close racing for all us fans and sponsers alike.

As stated before I really dont think it should matter weather the grid has pure prototype bikes or CRT-but why use production based engines?? Sureley Honda, Yamaha, Ducati (even Suzuki?) could supply engines to privateer teams and retrofit them to prototype racing frames, we could see - for example Bradl on a Moriwaki Ducati, or Smith on a Suter Yamaha or maybe a Kalex Suzuki for Tom Luthi the possibilities are endless, that way you keep your "factory" teams/riders but the rest of the grid have the same power at their disposal but within there own chassis/frame. Its been working in F1 like that for years! Moto 2 works very well lets level the GP playing field.

Erm, I don't mean to step on toes here, but when motogp went 4 stroke, the idea was that the factorys would/could supply engines to teams with their own chassis, alla Kenny Roberts. The problem there is a factory squad isn't going to like getting beaten by Johnny come lately, thats why the engines were specced down. My thoughts on Suzuki. They're gonna develop a new Gixer 1000 as it's getting on a bit and look to put that engine in CRT chassis. Just my opinion.
